To enhance, or not to enhance | @TheFutureBook | Young Adult and Children's Stories | Scoop.it

SourceBooks, the innovative US publisher, is claiming to have mastered the enhanced e-book problem— whereby publishers spend too much money amplifying digital books in ways the reader does not want—by coming up with a range of iBooks based on William Shakespeare's plays: the nicely titled Shakespearience.

Disruptions: Your Brain on E-Books and Smartphone Apps

Disruptions: Your Brain on E-Books and Smartphone Apps | Young Adult and Children's Stories | Scoop.it

Last week, my brain played a cruel trick on me. While waiting for my flight to take off, I was reading The New Yorker, the paper version, of course — I know the rules. I became engrossed in an article and swiped my finger down the glossy page to read more.

 

To my surprise, nothing happened. I swiped it again. Nothing.

 

My brain was trying to turn the page the same way I do on my iPad, with the swipe of a finger. (I quickly realized that I had to physically turn the page.)

 

A few days later, my brain played another technology-related trick ... Read more ...

Topic for the 10/7/12 #storyappchat: Ask a Librarian

Topic for the 10/7/12 #storyappchat: Ask a Librarian | Young Adult and Children's Stories | Scoop.it

Ever heard of a little organization called the American Library Association? They have a division called the Association for Library Service to Children, which awards the Caldecott and Newbery medals each summer and is focused all year long on supporting and enhancing library service to kids and their families.

 

We are pleased and excited to welcome two representatives from the organization as guest hosts for the next #storyappchat: Gretchen Caserottiand Dan Rude. Gretchen is the assistant director for public services at theDarien Library in Darien, CT, and is also the chairperson of the ALSC Children and Technology Committee, where storybook apps and digital access are hot topics of discussion. Dan is the marketing and membership specialist at ALSC,blogs on behalf of the organization, and manages the @ALSCBlog Twitter account.

 

Get your questions ready for Gretchen and Dan–they are especially interested in talking about recent research on co-reading with ebooks on the iPad, access/availability of digital content in libraries, and literacy/childhood development. We’ll kick things off at 9:00 p.m. ET/6:00 p.m. PT this Sunday, October 7. Be there or be square!

Little Digits | Apps For Children with Special Needs

Little Digits | Apps For Children with Special Needs | Young Adult and Children's Stories | Scoop.it

Little Digits is a fun educational app that teaches children about numbers by putting a new spin on finger counting.

Using the iPad multi-touch screen, Little Digits displays number characters by detecting how many fingers you put down. Children can learn to associate the number on the screen with the number of fingers they place down, whilst enjoying the unique characters and animations of the Little Digits world.

There are also games that introduce small addition and subtraction calculations, where you can work out the answer using the same multi-touch finger detection.

This is an app that will grow with your child’s numerical understanding. Not only can they discover numbers through initial independent play, you can also play collaboratively with your child, each putting fingers down to count and work out calculations together. Then when your child is ready, they can work out the answers for themselves, using their own little digits!
