Going Retro: Reading Apps for Real Books

Going Retro: Reading Apps for Real Books | Library Media (agm) | Scoop.it

YouTube clips. Texting. Twitter. Facebook status updates.

The prevalence of short-attention-span media — easily scanned or consumed — has led to much hand-wringing over how students will develop that lifelong love of reading perceived to be so critical to lifelong learning.

One answer (in addition to “it’s not as bad as you think,” as a recent Pew Research Center study might be summarized) may be in adapting the function to the form. Which is to say to put real, and sometimes classic, children’s books on the latest digital devices via apps and the web.  Mindshift article on reading Apps.

DuckDuckGo

DuckDuckGo | Library Media (agm) | Scoop.it

DuckDuckGo is an excellent alternative to using Google. As well as providing good results, the use of many short cuts that are quick and easy to remember (such as !images for example) DuckDuckGo is very strong on privacy, and doesn't store your search results. They're currently attacking Google both on that front and also on the concept of filter bubbles. This is a term coined by Eli Pariser, who says that Google is able to identify what you're interested in and adjust the results you see accordingly. Consequently you see more of what you like, and less of what you don't, which in turn reinforces your world view, and excludes important stuff to further down the list of results.
