iPad Best of the Best – 50 Essential Children’s Book Apps (Part 3: Elementary School) |

iPad Best of the Best – 50 Essential Children’s Book Apps (Part 3: Elementary School) | | Red Apple Reading Literacy and Education | Scoop.it

Children’s book apps have been around now for over two years and we have seen a lot of wonderful titles at Digital-Storytime.com over this time. What follows is the third of a four-part series, listing the best 50 iPad books for kids, broken down by age. You can see our first list (for toddlers) here: http://digitalmediadiet.com/?p=1645. Our second list (for preschoolers) is here: http://digitalmediadiet.com/?p=1683

 

This list is of apps that are appropriate for kids aged six to nine, although many are also quite enjoyable for children a bit younger and older than this range. We’ve selected the very best titles we’ve found for elementary school aged kids in 2012. We have not included any of the titles that made our list in 2011, so please also check out: iPad Best of the Best – 25 Essential Children’s Book Apps.

What Makes a Good Reader? The Foundations of Reading Proficiency

What Makes a Good Reader? The Foundations of Reading Proficiency | Red Apple Reading Literacy and Education | Scoop.it

It turns out that learning to read also requires some underlying cognitive skills. Children are not born good readers, of course; reading has to be taught. And for a child to be able to learn to read, four core cognitive capacities are needed: memory, attention, sequencing, and processing efficiency (speed and accuracy). It is helpful to tease out each one of these and explain the importance in learning to read.

Tips on Encouraging Kids to Read in the Digital Age – Guest Post by Michel Kripalani | The Digital Media Diet

Tips on Encouraging Kids to Read in the Digital Age – Guest Post by Michel Kripalani | The Digital Media Diet | Red Apple Reading Literacy and Education | Scoop.it

Dr. Seuss was right. Reading opens up our minds to new experiences and knowledge. For children, it can be a magical time. Today’s story telling has taken on a new dimension with the introduction of books on digital devices. Kids can now interact with stories, touching the screen and exploring the different features a particular book app has to offer.

How To Improve Differentiation With Educational Technology | MyWeb4Ed

How To Improve Differentiation With Educational Technology | MyWeb4Ed | Red Apple Reading Literacy and Education | Scoop.it

One of the unique things about technology integration that I have experienced in my own role as an Educational Technology Specialist is that teachers often believe that technology integration involves a project of some sort and that the technology takes center stage. Interestingly, I find that teachers make the same mistake when considering differentiation. While a project is certainly an admirable goal and one that should be encouraged, when calming the fears of teachers, it is a good idea to remind them that technology integration and differentiation occurs in a variety of ways and there are many options that are not as formal as a project.
