Shanghai’s education administration is working on a Digital Schoolbag project, going to launch some digital textbooks this year (in Chinese). Previously digital blackboard and PowerPoint Presentation were the only adopted digital means. Now schools in Shanghai are trying out a variety of digital products.

A system called “Adaptation” can analyse a kid’s homework and show more tailored to him or her.

Digital student ID is also under test for better managing student data. Visits to museums or other social activities will be recorded through devices deployed at those locations. With the ID system, students can choose anyone of the PE exam centers  in Shanghai to take a test.
