Obama wants schools to speed digital transition – USATODAY.com:

The Obama administration is asking every U.S. school to accelerate the transition to digital textbooks.

Obama's goal: an e-textbook in every student's hand by 2017.

Federal Communications Commission Chairman Julius Genachowski and Education Secretary Arne Duncan will recommend today at a summit of industry and education officials that states modify the textbook adoption process, allowing K-12 schools to use taxpayer funding once reserved for printed books on iPads, Kindles and the like — as well as software.
