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?

Gibbon-Fairfax-Winthrop High School was the first in the country to buy iPads for all students. They used them all last year and are bringing them back for the new school year, which starts tomorrow. So far, so good, says the principal.

To do this we need to educate them and provide them with the right technology to achieve these outcomes. This is why I believe that the iPad, in addition to other mobile devices and Apple learning platforms, is the right tool.

When is art finished? | Christine Martell

When is art finished? | Christine Martell | iPads and Other Tablets in Education | Scoop.it

The question of when a piece is finished is completely different when working digitally. When you are working with pixels, you simple save a copy, and keep going. It’s opens up so many possibilities and allows me to experiment in a way I can’t when working strictly with traditional media. It removes the risk of going too far.

The ipad takes it to another level for me. I find myself experimenting and playing in a way I haven’t done in a long time.
