What can digital do for us? Think big | FutureBook

What can digital do for us? Think big | FutureBook | Young Adult and Children's Stories | Scoop.it

In Penny Marshall's 1988 film, Big, the twelve-year-old protagonist, Josh Baskin, is turned away from a carnival ride for being too short. Later, standing in front of a fortune teller machine, Josh makes a wish to be big. This being Hollywood, he awakes the next day in the body of a thirty-year-old man (Tom Hanks).
 
Quite aside from its merits as a family comedy, Big reveals how adults might do well to think like children. Adjusting to life as a grown up, Josh takes a menial job at a toy company. Remarkably, he brings to the office so much childish creativity and chutzpah that he is promoted from Computer Operator to Designer with improbable speed.

A Web 3.0 Primer on the “Semantic Web”

A Web 3.0 Primer on the “Semantic Web” | Young Adult and Children's Stories | Scoop.it

“Web 3.0": for those of you who might have been sleeping during your Internet History classes, this third generation of the Web is one which expands upon the linkages, accessibility and collaboration enabled by Web 2.0 technologies such as social media and content-management systems.

 

Web 3.0 extends the idea of a more open internet by seeking to fundamentally change the way the internet is coded and data is represented.

 

The idea is that if its possible to standardize the way content is organized on the web into a family of categories, then those categories themselves will have basic meaning to other sites and applications that might be accessing that data.

Things to think about as the digital book revolution gains global steam - The Shatzkin Files

Things to think about as the digital book revolution gains global steam - The Shatzkin Files | Young Adult and Children's Stories | Scoop.it

The switchover from reading print to reading on screens, with the companion effect that increasingly the purchase of books is done online rather than in stores, is far advanced in the English-speaking world and especially so in the United States. In the past 12 months, the UK has begun to resemble the US market in this way.

 

With all due respect to everbody else, the primary driver of this change has been the efforts of Amazon.com. They made the online selling of print books work in the US and then provided the critical catalyst — the Kindle — to make ebooks happen. Other players — Barnes & Noble and Kobo with their devices and the publishers with their sales policies — have crafted their strategies primarily in response to Amazon. They are participants building out a market that Amazon first proved existed.

 

The impact of digital change in the US and UK markets has been both profound and severe. Bookstore shelf space has been lost at a rapid pace ...

Maybe they can even solve the problem of making illustrated books succeed in a digital format, which the English world has not done yet. Read more ...

iPad Best of the Best – 50 Essential Children’s Book Apps (Part 4: Tweens) | The Digital Media Diet

iPad Best of the Best – 50 Essential Children’s Book Apps (Part 4: Tweens) | The Digital Media Diet | Young Adult and Children's Stories | 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. And our third list (for ages six to nine) is here: http://digitalmediadiet.com/?p=1714.

 

This list is of apps that are appropriate for kids aged nine to twelve, often considered ‘tweens’ , although many are also quite enjoyable for children a bit younger and older than this range (including adults). We’ve selected the very best titles we’ve found for tweens 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.

Study: Stupid robots can make kids smarter | Digital Trends

Study: Stupid robots can make kids smarter | Digital Trends | Young Adult and Children's Stories | Scoop.it
Inserting a robot that gets things wrong into a classroom environment may sound counterintuitive, but according to a new Japanese study, it's something that helps children learn.

 

If you believe that the best way to learn is through simple trial and error, you’ll be happy to know that – despite numerous impressive advances in technology that have seen the introduction of not only computers, but also tablets, into the classroom – the educational establishment still agrees with you. It’s just that the failures that teach children belong to robots now, apparently.

 

A story in New Scientist explains that Japanese children are learning to speak English faster than before thanks to a new robot that tries to teach them, but gets things wrong. The discovery comes after Shizuko Matsuzoe and Fumihide Tanaka, two scientists at the University of Tsukuba, studied nineteen children aged between four and eight years old interacted with a humanoid robot known as Nao as it tried to teach them simple English words for shapes such as “circle,” “square” or “heart.”...
