2014 Finalists: Book Apps | Cybils Awards

2014 Finalists: Book Apps | Cybils Awards | support4elearning | Scoop.it

This book award was begun to fill a gaping need in the world of children’s books. We have only two criteria here: literary merit and popular appeal. If it’s literary but unreadable, it’s re-shelved. Popular but dumb? It’s toast. But where does diversity fit into all this? We’ve been asking ourselves this even before our friends at We Need Diverse Books and KidLitCon turned up the volume this year on a much-needed conversation.

Making a Connection With Interactive Children's Books | support4elearning | Scoop.it

2014 Best of the Best: Top Five Book Apps for Engaging Older Readers : The Digital Media Diet

2014 Best of the Best: Top Five Book Apps for Engaging Older Readers : The Digital Media Diet | support4elearning | Scoop.it

It’s time for Digital-Storytime’s fourth annual “best of the best” list for the top picture book apps for children, ages 2-12! This year we are breaking the list down into five separate categories, including this one - five apps to engage older readers (ages 8-12+). It includes non-linear storytelling, graphic novels, content creation and non-fiction.

 

You can see the other categories and get more information about our reviews, here: http://digitalmediadiet.com/?p=3261.

 

 

At Digital-Storytime, we take book apps seriously, as both books and apps. This format is all we review for a reason. We believe the best formats for presenting good books will always be story-driven and reader-driven, not technology-driven; technology may be how we tell stories, but it should never be why we tell stories. In a sea of content, it can be difficult to separate a fun kids app that happens to have a storyline from more meaty literature and educational content for young audiences. We hope we’ve helped.

Yes, please explain, Mr. Pratten

Brad Tollefson's curator insight, July 9, 2015 12:38 AM

The three Cs are:

Characters – the importance of storyConvenience – the importance of getting the right content to the right people at the right timeCommunity – the importance of connecting fans and rewarding them.

At the intersections we see the actions and functions we must support:

Characters+Convenience – the personalization of the story experience for each person based on their relationship to the worldConvenience+Community – the continued “personalization” but in a broader sense as applied to audience segments. For example an audience team collaborates to unlock content that only they can see. Also at this intersection is the ability to share content and refer friends to the worldCommunity+Characters – this is the relationship between the community and the world. Creators should provide opportunities to strengthen the relationship through procedures and technology to allow fan contributions, character interactions and such like.

Modern agriculture - even among organic farmers - is often seen as a matter of soil chemistry, writes Lynda Brown. But an alternative view is gaining ground: that it's really about soil life. Nurture your soil-dwelling micro-organisms, and your crops look after themselves.

An Articulate presentation that provides an overview of learning theories (behaviourism, cognitivism and constructivism) and pedagogic strategies (ISD, Dick and Carey, Gagne's 9 events of instruction, Problem and Project based Learning). The presentation concludes by listing components of the theories and strategies that teachers might use to guide the design of lesson plans. It is suggested that the presentation might also serve as a review for instructional designers.
