All books include some but different forms of learning. But a traditional book that is directed on reading and viewing images is, according to recent research, not that effective for the learning process. At the same time as the format in itself is excellent for an open learning process. With this in mind we decided to optimise and dramatically extend the content media forms in the book. The keyword for the development is interactivity, see image below.
Impact on the learning process
The title of my first book that was published in 2011 was “Learning for all senses” (only in Swedish), today most content in the book is outdated after the extraordinary leaps that technology has made, but the concept remains and should be a role model. As many senses as possible should be involved when learning, where doing, creating, and performing is the engine that makes the new knowledge remain in the memory. In this spirit, the interactive book has the potential of becoming an immersive storytelling and learning experience. All the pieces to make it happen are there. It is then your creativity and performance that add the pieces together after your vision and manuscript to the book.
