2nd International Conference on Curriculum, Teaching and Textbook Research
: Responding to the Intelligent Age
Beijing Normal University, P.RChina
20th-21st, November, 2019 

   Modern schooling has changed dramatically when the digital media and smart technology are deeply affecting schools and publishing industry.

This calls for the change in curriculum, classroom instruction and conventional textbooks. Meanwhile, we also need to rethink the standpoint, values and methodology towards to the smart technologies in schools from the perspectives of ethics, culture and curriculum theories, which promote to answer the complex questions.
