Textbooks design and digital resources

Abstract : In this paper we report on the comparison of the design and conceptualization of two very different French lower secondary mathematics textbooks: one which was developed, as it is 'traditionally' done, by 'experts' (teacher educators and researchers); and one which was developed, innovatively, by teachers using a digital platform. These different designs and conceptualizations had repercussions on the content, structure, potential and intended use of the books, which we investigated on the basis of specially designed questionnaires to the two groups of textbook authors. Our results point to re-conceptualisations of the notions of 'quality' and 'coherence' of resources such as textbooks, taking into consideration teachers' documentation work, in particular their – often collective – work with digital resources.
