Using technology for digital mathematics textbooks: More than the sum of the parts

Using technology for digital mathematics textbooks: More than the sum of the parts
This paper suggests a set of key features that might be appropriate when talking about digital textbooks or e-textbooks for mathematics education. The set of features are presented in a coherent framework and the paper will discuss each of the six features: widgets, interactivity, feedback, storing results, instructional design, authorability, interoperability and standards. I will argue, though, that these individual features are ‘more than the sum of the parts’; in other words that it’s the fact they are integrated into one e-textbook design that makes them useful. I try to support this by reframing the question to ‘what will we miss if the feature wouldn’t be there?’

Abstract

This paper suggests a set of key features that might be appropriate when talking about digital textbooks or e-textbooks for mathematics education. The set of features are presented in a coherent framework and the paper will discuss each of the six features: widgets, interactivity, feedback, storing results, instructional design, authorability, interoperability and standards. I will argue, though, that these individual features are ‘more than the sum of the parts’; in other words that it’s the fact they are integrated into one e-textbook design that makes them useful. I try to support this by reframing the question to ‘what will we miss if the feature wouldn’t be there?’
