Discover book paths – an adventurous trip

Discover book paths - an adventurous trip

Mark Twain’s vision is empowered by the interactive book-format that both speed up the navigation back and forth, as well as simplifies the iReader’s efforts to discover her individual book path. This e.g. in comparison to a “course” where the term in itself and how it is managed forms a one-way-street through the content. In this sense, the book’s multifaceted aspects are definitely a format for the digital age, while a course assembly-line process is more of the industrial age.

Interactive Books with a Q Part 4 – Curiosity and Learning

Interactive Books with a Q Part 4 - Curiosity and Learning

Walt Disney’s words are a distinct definition of what a traditional book wants to accomplish and even more the functionally empowered book design of interactive books. Its interactive features take the iReader on a journey of deepening thoughts, engagement and learning by doing. Where the iReader remains the navigator of “opening new doors and doing new things” and curiosity is the fuel for the whole process. 

In this light the interactive book could be the source and solution to the following words of Albert Einstein:

“It is a miracle that curiosity survives formal education.”

Since it in itself generates fuel of curiosity for most people. It becomes informal learning in a formal context, which means an optimisation of the learning environment. See the animation and click the links below for more information.

Curiosity to Learn in a tech-savvy World

Curiosity to Learn in a tech-savvy WorldCuriosity is the driving force that works to fill the gap between Nyfikenhet att Lära i en teknikintensiv världwhat we know and what we want to know. Torah Kachur CBC science columnist writes the following about the curiosity to learn:

“You can think of it like a mental itch and the only way to scratch the itch is to seek out new knowledge.”

To put fuel on this driving-force is even more important today than before the digital technology boom. This is one of the key points in Dr David A. Sousa’s book “Engaging the Rewired Brain”.

Dr Sousa’s research is based on recent brain research on how the human brain develops throughout childhood and adolescence. In the next step, he provides evidence-based guidance and points out specific strategies to teachers working with technology-addicted learners.

Rewired brain

Young people’s brain is developing differently in comparison with past generations. Since the human brain is plastic thereby changes with experience the rewiring goes to some extent for older generations too. Dr Sousa says that technology has reduced the need to remember information. It is the context that matters. At the same time smartphones, tablets and computers are an engaging distraction that either put the student on an adventurous learning-path or a zapping ride without purpose and goal. And Dr Sousa continues

“Teachers generally focus mainly on their students’ intellectual engagement and create lessons and assignments that stimulate their students’ curiosity and interests.”

Curiosity to learn

Torah Kachur writes:

“Another region of the brain that is stimulated when we are curious is the caudate — a region of the brain that essentially sits as an intersection between new knowledge and positive emotions.”

Here is one of the keys to why games could be such a powerful learning tool. This means that curiosity does not kill the cat as the saying says. Instead, it made it happier and more knowledgeable.
