On February 6th Learnmix team organised an e-textbook workshop. We had several guests from different fields: teachers, publishers and educational content providers, representatives from Ministry of Education and Research, Estonian Teachers Association, Koolitööde AS, eKool etc. The event was planned as the first one of a series of e-textbook related workshops and it aimed at sharing ideas and experiences; and initiating a community and network of people who are interested in developing the next generation e-textbooks. As we consider pedagogical aspects the most important ones, the focus of the first workshop was innovative pedagogical scenarios within the context of e-textbook development. After Mart’s presentation about the next generation of e-textbooks and their potential impact on learning and teaching the whole group carried out a hands-on activity to create examples of innovative pedagogical scenarios. An example of the result of the activities is found below.
Thanks to the participants and we hope that our first event gave some “food for thought”.
