Concept map for future artifact ecosystems to replace etextbook approach

Our paper discusses the niche technologies that have and possibly will contribute to the future e-textbooks as a new socio-technical regime. We propose the conceptual map of textbook functionalities aiming at opening the conceptual discussion for brainstorming and finding scenarios how the niche technologies that explored novel textbook applications in learning might be best combined into the new “artifact ecosystems” regime. Jointly with workshop participants we aim to come up with metaphors and concepts depicting learning in this regime.

Paper will be published in october 2014 in Springer, ICWL 2014 workshop papers

  1. 1. TOWARDS THE NEW SOCIO-TECHNICAL REGIME FOR E-TEXTBOOKS – “ARTIFACT ECOSYSTEMS” Kai Pata (, Maka Eradze, Mart Laanpere Tallinn University, Center for Educational Technology ICWL 2014, Future eTextbook’s workshop
  2. 2. I. eTextbooks programming personalized instruction for achieving pre-determined learning results Adaptive learning Learning results pre-planned Learning what crowd sees as best Optimal comprehension Support for earning styles Increased interactivity
  3. 3. Multimedia learning principles as the leading cognitive paradigm to explain learning with eTextbooks or Distributed cognition
  4. 4. Behavioral learning principles reintroduced in eTextbook or adaptive learning from crowd experiences Adaptive technologies Learning analytics
  5. 5. Co-construction and Social validation of Contents and Support Learning analytics in artifact ecosystems Socio-semantic technologies
  6. 6. II. eTextbooks with partial learners’ locus of control Open and emerging learning paths Textbook is a forum where people share ideas Can watch how things change and knowledge matures Fixed learning paths Teachers know what students must learn Compulsory contents with optional extending resources
  7. 7. Replicating the paper textbook digitally or creating the evolving artifact ecosystem
  8. 8. What hinders new “artifact ecosystem” regime? Old teaching habits are hard to change The students are ready, the teachers are not
  9. 9. Requires rethinking the production and business models, user-support and accessible learning devices What hinders new “artifact ecosystem”regime?
  10. 10. What “artifact ecosystems” may be? • How these potential e-textbook functionalities originating from different approaches to teaching, learning and cognitive practices could evolve into the new “artifact ecosystem” regimes? • What metaphors may be used for illustrating those artifact ecosystems? • Whom (Teachers? Students? Learning sciences? Producers? Educational policy makers and funders?) should we listen in developing “artifact ecosystems”, and where would each stakeholder group like to lead the eTextbook transformation?
  11. 11. Starting the joint white paper – “Artifact ecosystems” as the new socio- technical regime • Prospective scenarios for artifact ecosystems • Learning regime – learning is opened up; from monads to swarms; pattern appropriation and chance-seeking; etc. • Social and cultural factors – back to storytelling; voice for everyone etc. • Technical factors – access for each learner • Business regime – permaculture for artifact ecosystems (ethical, optimal use of resources and people, recycling resources) Join to our discussions and contribute to the joint write paper!
