Stacey Edmonds's curator insight, June 10, 2013 11:47 PM

We can be so creative and insprational now in how we provide learning to our children.  My son experiences the joys of Transmedia Storytelling when interacting with Ninjago, whether it be the cartoon, the games or his own world of Ninjago Lego.


It is hard as a parent to navigate between the whole 'Play Screen Time' v's 'Learning Screen Time' guidelines...especially when my son is also reading and writing words well above his offical 'grade' at school as he wants to create his own world in MineCraft, which means he needs to follow instructions and name his creations.


Actually, the insights in this article also takes me back to my early 20's when I was working with young men with learning difficulties and through the provision of computers they were motivated to read and write so they could search the 'world wide web' (what they were searching for was another matter!).


As Jennifer asks, If an app/game can inspire a child to read and become a lifelong reader, shouldn't we find ways to embrace the technology rather than condemn it?


See what you think!

Transmedia Storytelling

BookChook's curator insight, October 20, 2013 6:57 PM

Interesting article with thought-provoking comments. I believe we need to be open to all sorts of media and opportunities with our kids, to help them find the reading that works for them.

Perceiving sound contrasts : before 1 year of age, or never - VivaLing | The language of their future | Teaching Phonics - Phonological Awareness - Reading | Scoop.it
Babies are born universal listeners. In the first months of their lives, they can discriminate all the sounds produced by human beings. It is no small feat: you and I cannot. A typical Japanese adult is unable to hear the difference between an English /l/ and /r/. A typical English adult cannot detect the nuance …

LOVING and Learning from MONSTER ON THE HILL

LOVING and Learning from MONSTER ON THE HILL | Teaching Phonics - Phonological Awareness - Reading | Scoop.it

 Monster on the Hill  (Top Shelf Productions, 2013) by cartoonist Rob Harrell (Adam @ Home, Big Top), is a blast to read - a book for kids of all ages, from children through adults, and will make a welcome addition to any library or classroom. 

 

Monster on the Hill  is simply - fun. The characters are awesome, the illustrations are complement the tone, plot and characters, and dialogue is fun and the twists and turns are pure, unadulterated fun! 

 

I gave a copy of this book to a (very) reluctant reader and watched him sit a VERY long time, reading through this, smiling and reacting.  It was a joy to watch. 

Here's why:
