How will iPad picture books affect young reader’s literacy?

How will iPad picture books affect young reader’s literacy? | iPads and Other Tablets in Education | Scoop.it

I have been thinking a lot about the topic of literacy as I review iPad books at Digital Storytime. As the mother of a preschooler who is just now learning to read, the idea of digital books both delights and terrifies me. When I first read an iPad book to my son, back in April of 2010, I had a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach.

What did these new picture books, with their instant appeal, mean for print books and more importantly, for reading as a pastime? Would my son ‘read’ or would he instead be distracted by books he could passively watch, or even worse, books that were more like toys and less like educational tools for literacy?
