iBook Lessons: Why the Kindle App is still the best reader on iOS

iBook Lessons: Why the Kindle App is still the best reader on iOS | Litteris | Scoop.it

The important thing about e-books is this: the reader matters a lot less than the content. Over time, I've found myself using iBooks less and less and less, as I now turn almost exclusively to Kindle for my iPad reading.

Libraries to become community publishing portals

Libraries to become community publishing portals | Litteris | Scoop.it

With the rise of ebooks, public libraries are at a crossroads. Some book publishers, fearful that library ebook lending will cannibalize retail sales of books, are reluctant to supply ebooks to libraries at the very time that library patrons are clamoring for greater access to such materials.

Los poderes públicos pagan con dinero de todos el trabajo de profesores, catedráticos e investigadores y, si ese trabajo se paga con dinero de todos ¿no debería también pertenecernos a todos el fruto del trabajo así pagado?

No tiene sentido que los libros de texto, por ejemplo, no sean accesibles gratuitamente para el conjunto de la población. Impedir ese derecho de acceso gratuito en defensa de intereses particulares es una de las decisiones más torpes y equivocadas que pueden adoptarse. Y una de las más inmorales también.

          When it is said that Chaucer is the father of English poetry and even the father of English literature, we broadly mean that his contribution to the evolution of English poetry or literature is much more significant than that of his contemporaries and predecessors.

Elements of Compelling Video Storytelling

Elements of Compelling Video Storytelling | Litteris | Scoop.it

"Once upon a time, public relations professionals only considered using video for major national stories ­– a video news release.

 

But over the past several years, in the throes of a slow and rather quiet death, print media has moved past obsolete into antiquated, and video media has surged forward to replace it.

 

Internet video channels and the phenomenon of “viral” status has rendered video an essential element in successful national-level business storytelling. This is evident in Forbes, the Wall Street Journal and Inc."

Storytelling: Why, How and the Secrets needed to Weave Magic

Storytelling: Why, How and the Secrets needed to Weave Magic | Litteris | Scoop.it

"Storytelling is a folk art that has been passed down from generation to generation. At its best storytelling can hold a village enthralled and can spark goose bumps in the most sceptical of adults. For all that we have gained from modern media we have lost something in our collective ability to tell tales and entertain each other using only our voices and our imagination. Nowhere is this loss sadder than in our relationship to the children closest to us. Children learn so much from being told stories and they develop skills that they will use throughout their lifetime. The following is just a short list of the benefits of telling stories to children:"

How to build a story – The basics

 

1. Include the children themselves.2. Involve favourite teddies or pets.3. Locate the story in places the children know well (home, park school) or exotic locations they have heard of (jungle, under the ocean, polar regions etc).4. Re-work the children’s favourite books. This will use a known starting point that will engage your child immediately. Build on stories you have created before and expand them to new locations or introduce new characters.5. Use lots of ‘sound effects’ – creaking doors, thumping footsteps and boinging springs are favourites in our house.6. Use actions and gestures – knocking on doors, waving goodbye, clapping hands (bang!). This will keep your child active and interested.7. Don’t over complicate it: Most stories involve large amounts of repetition and often include three of something (3 children, 3 locations). For a basic template think of the fairy tales we tell children when they are little.8. Ask questions at key points to punctuate the story (e.g. ‘and how do you think he responded?’). Storytelling is an interactive medium – get your child involved.9. Use voices for characters and use volume within the story. It’s always fun to whisper parts to make the children crane forward to hear what will happen next. Shouting boisterous parts will also ensure you keep their attention.10. Use comedy: And remember what is likely to be considered funny for your audience. This is likely to be goo, pants, people falling over, adults looking silly and anything involving most bodily functions.

Manal Karnib's curator insight, April 22, 2013 6:41 AM

 iPads are an effective tool used within classrooms as it keeps students engaged with their work. Walsh (2009) discusses the affect technology is having on society as well as in the classrooms. As students are now given the opportunity to read electronically, allowing students to visually and interactively view novels through technological advancements such as iPad’s, enhances ones understanding of specific issues as it allows information to be read, listened to and comprehended in an interesting manner. Nonetheless the use of technology in the classroom does not come without opportunities as well as challenges for the teachers who use them to support learning. The main aim of the research project throughout this source was to see the effect iPads as an eBook has on students and if it has any impact on their learning. Results showed that although the students participating in the study reported an increase in engagement when using the iPad, there was not a corresponding rise in achievement. It was also seen that at times it served as a distracter and it also frustrated attempts to engage the students in “offline” discussion, suggesting there are strong implications for pedagogy. This source allows teachers to be prepared for any problems they may encounter when using iPads in the classroom as well as being able to relate to the other teachers that had mixed feelings.

 

Teaching strategies that can be implemented in the classroom with the use of iPads include having students use a range of applications that the teacher can download relating to any topic. For example when teaching Maths the teacher can resort to the range of application that teach students how to add and subtract in an engaging manner. Students can also use their iPads as an eBook and read and write about a range of books. This will ensure that all students are engaged and interacting with their work. Following on, as a form of assessment, the students can then read and write about the same book without the use of technology and have students discuss their experience with the rest of the class. Observing and recording how students respond is also an effective tool when assessing students.

O que uma boa leitura nos traz? - Março 2013 | Litteris | Scoop.it

Ler um texto ou uma obra de arte envolve dar sentido ao que se lê, levando em conta a situação desse objeto (texto, obra, filme etc) e também do leitor. Contextualizar. A leitura, independente de um contexto escolar, vai além do texto escrito, trata-se do ato da interpretação e compreensão de expressões, tanto formais quanto simbólicas, estejam no meio de linguagem que estiverem. Não importa. A partir disso a leitura ganha espaço no entendimento do processo de aprendizado de cada coisa no mundo e em nós.

As novas gerações estão cada vez mais imersas no mundo digital, utilizando smartphones e outros dispositivos móveis que os conectam com o mundo a todo instante. Nestes dispositivos, leem e escrevem cada vez mais, além de fazer uso de outras formas discursivas, como vídeos e imagens. Por outro lado, as mensagens trocadas estão cada vez mais curtas e as pessoas parecem perder gradativamente o interesse em textos mais longos e densos. As escolas estão preparadas para este cenário?
