Textbooks at Eduvation school network go high-techThis school year, some primary school students found that their backpacks became lighter, thanks to the introduction of e-textbooks in the classrooms of the EDUVATION school network. Known as the eB?k book series, the new set of e-textbooks were developed by educators within the school system, and published by the publishing house Byrtus. Daoun emphasized that the content and visuals of the e-textbooks reflect Lebanese societal values and that of the school network curriculum.Beyond the introduction of local values, the books also feature far more interactive features than traditional textbooks.While the structure of the e-textbooks resembles traditional textbooks, interactive features such as multiplication flash cards and videos are interwoven throughout,to keep students engaged and enable learning through multiple approaches.In developing the curriculum, staff created a cast of characters, present throughout the e-textbook content, who help drive the lessons forward.Najem said the e-textbooks have greatly expanded the variety of activities used to teach lessons and can accommodate students of different learning styles.
