Minister of education), Pernille Rosenkrantz-Theil (S) requires a balance between digital lærermidler and books.

When the entire class sets of books being run on the combustion, and the pupils go to school without a single book in your bag, this is the digital enthusiasm in school gone too far.

It believes the minister for children and education), Pernille Rosenkrantz-Theil (S), which will now take steps to ensure that students meet more books and less screens in the school.

- We may come to go straight legally long with digitisation. And it is not because the iPad may not be the answer to something in teaching, but it may not be the answer to it all, says Pernille Rosenkrantz-Theil.

the minister for education refers to studies that show that the digital learning resources benefit the most in education, when combined with books and texts on paper.

She considers that the development has gone too far, when some schools have so-called portalundervisning with, for example, e-books and digital learning tools in 85 percent of school hours.

- We can now make measurements on the children's reading. And if it all takes place on a screen, so does their desire to read, and it won't do, because there are still too many children who end up leaving primary school without being able to read and count adequately, says Pernille Rosenkrantz-Theil.

Therefore shall convene the she now the representatives from the national Association of Local authorities, teachers and it-service providers in the community to ensure a better balance between computers and books.

At the Danish Teachers ' association, is the president of the undervisningsudvalget, Jeanette Sjøberg, welcomed the minister's initiative.

the President of Local government denmark (lgdk's children and undervisningsudvalg, Thomas Gyldal Petersen (S), agree with the minister that there is a challenge in the digital market.

This is because, according to him, that a few providers on the market means that there is not enough material to choose between.
