School children in classroom

Pilot project to conduct next school year with virtual manuals

From September, 20,000 pupils from the 3rd to 12th years will be studying with digital manuals, as part of a pilot project launched by the government seeking to ‘gradually substitute printed manuals’. The project began in a limited way last year (with 11,400 pupils taking part in the scheme). Education minister João Costa has said that by the end of this legislature (in 2026) the plan is to have all schools working with digital manuals.
