Digital books are used more often nowadays. As these textbooks are able to better mediate some information, it may be assumed that children improve their study results. Based on the pedagogical experiment, the goal is to verify this idea. The pedagogical experiment was carried on two primary schools. The first of the schools joined with one experimental class (where an interactive textbook was used) and two control classes (where the usual paper textbooks were used). The positive effect was proved only partially. Having examined all samples from both of the schools (134 tests in total) and considering influencing factors, the main hypothesis has not...
