Cool to be Clever: Edson Hendricks for iPad - Digital Storytime's Review

Cool to be Clever: Edson Hendricks for iPad - Digital Storytime's Review | Readers Advisory For Secondary Schools | Scoop.it
Overall, this is a phenomenal title that presents non-fiction content in a more modern way, letting kids explore and learn at their own pace, with or without narration. This title would be great for lessons on bullying, the Internet, biography and more. Struggling, older readers will also benefit from having a title tailored to their interests with the option to listen rather than read (although text does not highlight). This is truly a must-download title. My highest recommendation!

 

An excellent free book app with appeal to readers from 8 to adult. Well reviewed by Carisa Kluver. Find more digital story reviews on this page.

Chafie Creative Group, based in Dallas, has introduced a new iPad app called Immersedition, the first in what it believes is a new form of interactive book app. The app features as its first title The Survivors, a young adult fiction from new author Amanda Havard, who designed the story to ultimately be an enhanced media experience. The 283-page book, which went on sale earlier this year in print and tells the stories of descendants from participants in the Salem Witch Trial, includes 300 touch points that reveal 500 interactive frames of content embedded in the pages of the book through watermarks.
