Making Teaching Visible to Learners through the eZoomBook Platform


The eZoomBook (eZB) platform was designed to create a learner-friendly experience in reading by allowing contributors to collaboratively create and share multi-level books called “eZoomBooks” where readers can access abridged versions of the original by a zooming function. This paper focuses on John Hattie’s “visible learning” principles and their application to eZB. Our objective is to show that the eZB framework and pedagogical applications are especially appropriate for a visible learning methodology. We will also highlight aspects of teacher collaboration to further enrich and expand the applications of the ZB platform. We will deal with three areas of Hattie’s research: the first is the primacy of reading; the second is micro-tutoring, a concept that we will define in relation to Hattie’s micro-teaching and to other well-known concepts of “Personalized System of Instruction” and use of peers as co-teachers. The third is the value of feedback. Finally, we will show that improving the self-image of the reader as a successful learner is a key value that we will continue to incorporate into the eZB methodology.
