    Technology and the internet revolution have already transformed modern day communications in many parts of the world.

    South Korea has gone a step further and unveiled a 'smart' high school where roll calling is a thing of the past and tablet computers or 'smart pads' have replaced bags burdened with notebooks.

    The prototype school has technology at its core where students are experiencing the ultimate high-tech education.

    The government believes that a digital economy will require a technology-savvy workforce, and the new school seems to fit into their motto: Today's pupils are tomorrow's pioneers.
