Picture books DO boost literacy: It doesn't matter what you read to your children as long they are interested in the story

Picture books DO boost literacy: It doesn't matter what you read to your children as long they are interested in the story | Children's eBooks | Scoop.it

Two Thirds of Parents Don’t Read to Their Kids Every Night, Reveals Poll | School Library Journal

Two Thirds of Parents Don’t Read to Their Kids Every Night, Reveals Poll | School Library Journal | Children's eBooks | Scoop.it

Only one in three parents of children ages eight and under reads stories to their kids each night, according to a new survey  by the literacy organization Reading is Fundamental (RIF) and Macy’s.

 

Overall, 87 percent of the parents who participated in the online poll read to their kids at bedtime—but not every night. Half the parents said that their children spend more time watching TV and playing video games than reading.

Good question, Carisa! That's what we want to believe in at CotCotCot-apps.com.

Transforming the Way We Learn: Why Digital Literacy is So Important

Transforming the Way We Learn: Why Digital Literacy is So Important | Children's eBooks | Scoop.it
“digital literacy is less about tools and more about thinking…”
When we talk about language literacy, we are discussing much more than the basic ability to recognize words on a page.

Likewise, digital literacy is more than simply knowing how to use digital tools. It is the ability to “locate, organize, understand, evaluate, and analyze information using digital technology.” It’s also about knowing what to share, and who to share it with.

Interesting commentary on #BEA13 (and read the comments section)

I can certainly understand their reluctance. As someone who helps individuals self-publish, it's been quite a challenge learning to format for all the different digital versions.
