Abstract [en]

In this paper we outline an interactive electronic book that teaches high school students about human locomotion. Today the most common teaching methods are lectures or reading a static textbook where the student’s participation is passive and they do not engage in the learning process. When learning about human gait, students not only learn anatomy and kinesiology but also have the opportunity to grasp theoretical subjects such as mathematics, physics, biomechanics as well as concepts of modeling and simulation to carry out experiments. In this paper we outline an interactive electronic book where the student becomes engaged in the learning processes, they can add/remove text, images, video, create models and perform simulation in one environment. The Gait E-book combines the theoretical lecture with the interactive learning process of modeling and simulation. Two different simulation platforms will be supported in the E-book, OpenModelica and OpenSim. Modelica is a powerful modern equation based simulation language where students can focus on learning mathematical and physical behavior.
