More than a quarter of teachers believe textbooks will become obsolete due to the rise of the internet, a poll has revealed. A survey of almost 600 primary and secondary school teachers reveals that many believe more and more learning will be done online. And the majority think that information technology (IT) is now more important than traditional teaching methods. Some 27.4% said that textbooks will become obsolete as increasing amounts of teaching material is posted online, while more than two thirds (67.9%) said IT such as interactive whiteboards and computers were most important to them in the classroom.
