Mas afinal, o que é literatura? - Como diferenciar o texto literário do não literário? | Litteris | Scoop.it

Segundo o dicionário Houaiss, a palavra Literatura (do latim: lat. litteratúra,ae'id.', com o sentido de “letra do alfabeto, caráter da escrita”) apareceu pela primeira vez na Língua Portuguesa no ano de 1728 e designa, entre outras coisas, 

1. uso estético da linguagem escrita; arte literária; 2. conjunto de obras literárias de reconhecido valor estético, pertencentes a um país, época, gênero etc.

How Future eBooks May Revolutionize How You Consume, Interact and Create Value Around Them

Meet Nelson, Coupland, and Alice — the faces of tomorrow’s book.

Robin Good's curator insight, February 16, 2013 4:50 AM


Back from September 2010 this cool video about the future of books, created by Ideo, a global design and innovation agency, explores some really fascinating ideas connected to how we may want to consume, explore, research and interact with digital books in the near future. Specifically:


a) What new experiences might be created by linking diverse discussions,


b) What additional value could be created by connected readers to one another, and


c) What innovative ways we might use to tell our favorite stories and build community around books?


"[this video] blows the binding off conventional notions of how we consume the written word.


In Ideo's telling, tomorrow's books will let you join online discussions, fact-check, and even dictate the particulars of a plot -- all in a tablet-friendly format."

(Source: Factodesign)


To present all of the possible transformations that the ebook reading experience may take, in this video clip, Ideo has painted three potential new type of reading experiences and has given them three unique names:


"1) Nelson reinforces books as critical thinking tools, providing multiple perspectives, references, and current conversations on a single subject. The layers of information beyond the book itself provide greater context and encourages a deeper dive into the book throughout history and into the future.


2) Coupland addresses the challenge to stay on top of the thinking and writing in our world and professional field that so many of us feel. Readers can easily keep up with "must-reads" by following what colleagues are reading and interact with them through "book clubs" and other social layers (discussions, suggestions, lists, purchases) to help each other share and learn.


3) Alice explores new ways for users to interact and affect written narratives by introducing non-linear and game mechanics to reading. By introducing the reader's active participation, this concept "blurs the lines between reality and fiction." Certain interactions allow the reader to transcend traditional media by utilizing geographic location, communication with characters, and user contribution to storyline and plot."

What we gain and lose in the future of reading

What we gain and lose in the future of reading | Litteris | Scoop.it

When we link what we read — whether through apps, social networks, or some new thing to come — our experience of the book becomes more than a solitary experience. The model of Thoreau reading alone in his cabin in Walden is not as relevant as it once was.

Gabriela Dias's curator insight, February 7, 2013 7:17 PM

This approach to reading is like the MOOC approach in education: it’s about discovery, experimentation and re-appropriation across a vast network of like-minded people (and along the way, you can learn something and pick up new skills).

Crianças com TV no quarto e celular têm desempenho pior em teste de leitura, indica estudo

Crianças com TV no quarto e celular têm desempenho pior em teste de leitura, indica estudo | Litteris | Scoop.it
As crianças que têm aparelho de TV no quarto e telefones celulares se saíram pior em um teste de leitura, segundo um estudo divulgado pela Fundação Nacional de Pesquisas em Educação (Reino Unido).

A pesquisa, divulgada no final do ano passado, dá um enfoque local ao levantamento PRIS 2011, que comparou a capacidade de leitura e atitudes em relação a esse hábito. Foram consideradas crianças entre 9 e 10 anos em 49 países.
Aqueles que possuem instrumento musical (76% dos jovens entrevistados no Reino Unido) tiveram média de 559, segundo a pontuação utilizada pela fundação. Sem instrumento musical (24%), esse número caiu para 528.
