Talk given at the BOBCATSSS 2015 conference - http://www.bobcatsss2015.com/.

The introduction of Web 2.0 has led to the internet becoming more interactive. These technical developments are already being implemented in the educational sector of our society, where there is being experimented with Interactive Learning Technologies.
Our main concern in this matter is the effectiveness of these Interactive Learning Technologies, in comparison to a physical textbook.
We conclude that adding interactive functions to texts is useful for the user. He or she has access to relevant information which can be used in an effective way in sharing knowledge. This access is due to the ever advancing technologies and innovations in the line of work.
Nevertheless, these innovations might as well lead to distraction which causes lack of concentrated learning. This distraction complicates the so called Deep Reading of text (Carr, 2010).
In our Pecha-Kucha-presentation we will discuss pros and cons of e-books and compare this tool to textbook usage. Our presentation is centered around the dilemma many people and institutions are facing in this matter.
