Stacey Edmonds's curator insight, June 10, 2013 11:47 PM

We can be so creative and insprational now in how we provide learning to our children.  My son experiences the joys of Transmedia Storytelling when interacting with Ninjago, whether it be the cartoon, the games or his own world of Ninjago Lego.


It is hard as a parent to navigate between the whole 'Play Screen Time' v's 'Learning Screen Time' guidelines...especially when my son is also reading and writing words well above his offical 'grade' at school as he wants to create his own world in MineCraft, which means he needs to follow instructions and name his creations.


Actually, the insights in this article also takes me back to my early 20's when I was working with young men with learning difficulties and through the provision of computers they were motivated to read and write so they could search the 'world wide web' (what they were searching for was another matter!).


As Jennifer asks, If an app/game can inspire a child to read and become a lifelong reader, shouldn't we find ways to embrace the technology rather than condemn it?


See what you think!

Transmedia Storytelling

BookChook's curator insight, October 20, 2013 6:57 PM

Interesting article with thought-provoking comments. I believe we need to be open to all sorts of media and opportunities with our kids, to help them find the reading that works for them.

12 Rules The Best Teachers Live By - Huffington Post

12 Rules The Best Teachers Live By - Huffington Post | Education & Homeschooling | Scoop.it

"The brilliant educators featured in American Teacher represent a wide assortment of backgrounds, academic subjects, experience levels, scholastic environments, and student demographics. Yet regardless of their many outward differences, there are certain shared ideas and principles about teaching that can be gleaned from all their profiles. I've gathered this group of precepts into the Twelve Rules for Being a True Classroom Hero. Of course there are no absolutes when it comes to defining the formula for great teaching (see Rule #1 as case in point!), but what follows is an excellent starting place."

The Different Ways to Homeschool by Homeschool.com

The Different Ways to Homeschool by Homeschool.com | Education & Homeschooling | Scoop.it

"Although every homeschool is unique, certain homeschooling styles       and approaches have become very popular. Most homeschoolers do not follow one style or       method exactly. Instead, they select the ideas and suggestions that fit their family and       eventually end up with a method all their own.


       It may take some time to develop your own       routine and you may discover that you start out more structured in the beginning and       become more flexible and relaxed as time goes on. Remember, there is no right or wrong       way to homeschool. Every family is unique, so find the homeschooling method that works       best for you and your children.
      

Some children prefer structure and learn best when they are told what to do, others learn best on their own.  Some children do their best work around the kitchen table, and others excel when they are out-of-doors.  The goal for the homeschooling parents is to identify how, when and what their child learns best and to adapt their teaching style to their child." ...
