This article presents a review of recent research whose main objective is the analysis of didactic practices mediated by the electronic or digital book. In the second part of this work a case study is developed articulated through the visions of the teacher participating in the «Programa Escuela 2.0» that was centered through the model "One Laptop Per Child" (OLPC) in a preliminary integration of the digital textbook within the teaching-learning processes of a third-grade classroom of primary education. The textbook, hegemonic didactic material in teaching practices has been and is the symbol of authority and the vehicle of transmission of a certain value system. The introduction of e-books in educational settings may imply a paradigm shift, provided that all elements of the educational community adapt to their possibilities. In this way, we intend to project new ways of reading, understanding the screen as a new central space within cultural practices. The provisional results presented an insignificant scope and several obstacles and difficulties in concreting an incorporation of the digital book into the classroom.
