29 The book works really well
The book is the ultimate “reader” Inexpensive – You get free reader hardware with each physical book purchased No batteries needed Very durable So simple a 2-year old could use it No other user interacts with the physical content more than students Highlighting Note taking Bookmarking Flipping Multiple books a once


31 Digital Content Ecosystem (cloud hosted digital locker)
Reading on the go. Light studying Heavy duty studying Home/Library Sync through a common cloud (locker) Digital Content Ecosystem (cloud hosted digital locker)

32 The Reading/Studying Ecosystem
Reader Platform Reader Textbooks Note Taking Ecosystem Commerce Sharing Messaging Annotation Class/Study Notes Internet/Other Content Common Interface, Format Content Management Instructor Supplied Study Ad-ins Trade Books Periodicals Study Aids/Other Books

33 Reasons for Purchasing eBooks
Price is the primary factor Only way to obtain the textbook [out of stock, preference by the professor, custom PDF type eBook that the professor created for sale]. 18% of students who purchased an eBook did so because they enjoy the features 10% of students who purchased an eBook did so because they had never used one and were curious

34 Improved Performance or Efficiency
Being able to search for a particular word or phrase in the textbook has improved my efficiency in studying. I use my laptop extensively and take notes on it, so having a copy of the book on my laptop at all times helped me work on my class work whenever I want without having to worry about whether or not I have the book with me. No 10-lb book to carry around = epic win. Top 5 Current Features, as rated by students: Reading Controls (paging, zoom…) Finding terms in a book Creating Highlights and Annotations Reviewing previously created Highlight and Annotations Managing your Digital Library

35 Features Students Want
Search within and across content Annotation/highlight and sharing of notes Downloaded texts over online access - Flexibility of where and when they can access their books. Integration with other course content including lecture notes, professor guidance…

37 Students said… Like size, lighter than laptop
Like speed, fast than laptop—instantly on More convenient than iPhone—read/write Highly mobile Like having everything in one place Opens attachments well

38 Overall Research Conclusions
Given the opportunity, students are willing to experiment with reading and studying digitally. When students do read and study digitally, results indicate that they find it as effective or more effective than studying with the physical book. When students do read and study digitally, their responses to usability of features shows that their expectations are high. Expect basic features to be as good as print experience (e.g., notes and annotations.) Also, expect that there are compelling features that go beyond what is feasible in the physical book experience (e.g., tags across notes, organizational capabilities.)

39 Conclusions E-Reading in higher education is more about e-studying than e-reading. Evaluate solutions on the entire ecosystem Hardware , e-Reading/Study Software Available Content Tablets and portable devices are currently satellites to a PC/Mac base; this will change over time. Constantly poll your students and faculty. Don’t over commit--this is going to be a longer transition than other digital media.

40 Future Trends As portable and tablet capabilities improve, so will their ability to support e-textbook content/platforms. Content trends Increase in smaller and specialized content Increase in multimedia content New distribution models including subscriptions, open source content, and institutionally-developed. There will be a blurring of lines between e-readers, LMS, and internet resources.



43 ECAR Data (students and IT)
Participate in the survey, get the raw data, and compare Adapt study of UG students and IT to meet the information needs of your institution Learn about Technology ownership (laptops, handhelds, etc.) Technology use in courses Technology (T&L) use preferences Student information literacy Student technology skills and needs

44 Review mobile technologies and ask…
What would be the ramifications and opportunities for learning if this technology were adopted? What kinds of teaching and learning engagements might this technology: make better or enable? If we decide to do a pilot, what kind of evaluation methodology can we overlay on the project to assess outcomes? What kind of additional research needs to be done concerning this technology?

45 Take-Aways Be aware of the emerging technologies, select carefully
Collect technology-related data on students and faculty on an annual basis Make learning technology implementation decisions with data and with your students Be purposeful about selection and infusion of technology into the blended course (what will it do better?)

50 New Literacies Speaking Blending report and story
Technological and digital literacy Writing Reading Listening and watching Creating Speaking. Delivering presentations, performing stories, delivering speeches, creating voice narratives for media projects are common and expected today. Blending report and story. Using critical thinking skills to blend fact with story can create an appealing media product. Technological and digital literacy. This includes being able to absorb new skills and shed old ones quickly, like writing online or evaluating web pages. Writing. Script writing, texting, journaling are all involved in new technologies. Reading. Researching and gathering information, images and ideas for digital projects are examples of reading. Listening and watching. Today many of the materials we use involve multi-media formats. Creating: New technologies let learners use literacy in creative ways.

Teams chose a SCRIBE who will record the groups conclusions. Chose a LEADER who will moderate the discussion. You select ONE of the following tools to discuss: Cloud Storage Google Applications Presentation Tools Use Page 1 of the handout Web Checklist to evaluate the tool you have been assigned. Be prepared to share the results of your evaluation. What did you learn? Web 2.0 Checklist This is an opportunity to experiment with a tool so you can see what students experience. We will be in and out of the breakout room to assist you. You will assign a SCRIBE who will record the key notes as you evaluate your tool – only the SCRIBE will write on the whiteboard . You will also select a LEADER who will moderate the discussion – the LEADER will be able to see who is in the room and call on people. You will be able to talk via your phone, as well as chat. Once you’ve reviewed your tool, you’ll
