Title Exploring playful annotations in interactive textbooks: Engaging the teacher and the learner in an active learning process
Author(s) Nicolas, Noémie

English abstract
This thesis aims at exploring the potential of playful annotations in interactive textbooks, to engage the teacher and the learner in an active learning process. This research focus was taken after a Field study consisting of a range of semi-structured interviews, surveys, and discussions with teachers and students from a pilot school provided with an interactive textbook platform called Gleerups. This latter is a Swedish publisher which spreads a large offer of educational textbooks across Sweden. The thesis topic was chosen in order to find and suggest ways to approach the learning and reading phase in an active way while also focusing on the teacher-learner relationship. The design contributions include proposals for improvements taking the shape of scenarios and sketches using field research and qualitative studies. It is based on an analysis of related examples and cross disciplinary literature, grounding the research in education and learning theories. Finally, a prototype encompassing the main features raised from the research is presented. The thesis ends with outcomes and reflections from findings, as well as discussions with stakeholders and teachers that initiated the research.
