OLD SCHOOL MEETS NEW SCHOOL: THE ADAPTIVE SCHOOL BOOK APPROACH - Adaptivity Extends Conventional School Books with Digital Media

André Schulz, Merlin Becker

Abstract

The school book as the traditional learning medium is still going strong. The mere use of digital media is no guarantee for the improvement of learning. In this paper, the project “Adaptive School Book” (ASB, for short) is presented. The focus is on the combination of printed school books with digital media (media mix). This approach is extended to the adaptive deployment of digital media. The overall objective is the optimal support of the processes of teaching and learning. Therefore the authors developed an approach based on the analysis of adaptivity and the detailed discussion of the conditions of the application domain (focussing learning in school). The variety of the influencing factors, the open issues and the risks of uncertain decisions in the adaptation process show the need of a well-considered procedure of development. Therefore, four major steps of development have been proposed. The implementation of the first step of development is shown in a demonstrator. The evaluation of the demonstrator in the context of expert interviews and qualitative studies in school lessons provides important criteria and requirements for the future development of the approach.
