Picture Book Month

Picture Book Month | Transliterate | Scoop.it

Transliteracy includes every kind of media, and paper books still count as one of those media types, despite their reduction in popularity with the rise of the iPad/Kindle/Nook. Of course, you can get your picture books delivered electronically, so the paper debate doesn't really matter, I guess.

VIZUALIZE | Transliterate | Scoop.it

A blog about visualization.

 

Literacy includes, beyond just reading and writing, an understanding of the message behind the visual presentation of a product--what are the advertisers and designers trying to  make us think and feel about a product?

 

This blog presents many visualizations --some common products, some not-- which a class could analyze to determine the designer's message and whether or not they agree that the message accurately reflects the quality of the product and what it can provide for the user.

America's Facebook Generation Is Reading Strong : NPR

Young Americans are reading more than just status updates and 140-character tweets. A new study by the Pew Research Center shows that among 16- to 29-year-olds, 8 in 10 have read a book in the past year.

 

Key points:

Teens still like print books as well as e-books; they don't want one to go away, they like choice.

Teens like the idea of pre-loaded e-book readers that they can check out with a bunch of popular titles already on them.

They want their own space within a library; they're willing to use a library, but they want to be able to hang out there and be comfortable as well as use the materials available.
