For publishers, it seems like a challenge to produce textbooks that are well suited to the clientele. Since elementary and secondary students have different needs, should digital material designed for them be personalized?

In elementary school, teachers like texts to be read. This is what the authors of Éditions Grand Duc observed with the collection Clickmots and those of ERPI with Bookworm and MINI bookworm.

We also note a craze for TBI activities for primary school teachers. “The projectable activities are beautiful and colorful. The children are very excited, confirms Ms. Lavoie. They like being able to stand up, go ahead and try ”. Modulo, ERPI and Grand Duc have taken this tangent, each offering products in their own colors.

In secondary education, the digitization of the printed textbook seems to be the starting point. “However, we add additional resources that vary according to the discipline: audio files, videos and Internet links…”, mentions Virginie Chatard, of Grand Duke. “The companion sites make it possible to offer supplements that would have been expensive to produce in paper format. For some manuals, we even add additional files to those already printed, ”adds Ms. Viel de Modulo. “In the digital manual, we have added annotation features that exist on the TBI, but that can be used with a simple projector,” says Vivianne Chénier, from ERPI. The projector is often used at the secondary level because the projection surface is larger ”. Interactive activities to be done online are also being considered.
