Teach Your Monster to Read On Your iPad - iPad Apps for School

Teach Your Monster to Read On Your iPad - iPad Apps for School | Library Matters | Scoop.it
Teach Your Monster to Read is a fun game designed to help students improve the speed and accuracy with which they recognize letters, sounds, and words. Teach Your Monster to Read originally launched as a free web service (it is still available online). Recently, I learned from David Kapuler that Teach Your Monster to Read is now available as an iPad app too.

Inspiring Writing using Adventure Game Creation with Book Creator App - Sept 2014 Blog Post

Inspiring Writing using Adventure Game Creation with Book Creator App - Sept 2014 Blog Post | Library Matters | Scoop.it

This term I have been working with upper Key Stage 2 pupils to develop interactive adventure style games in Book Creator. One of the features of the app is it allows you to link objects such as images and text to other pages within the book. For images, tap on the image to select it, then tap on the Info icon and use the hyperlink box to type in the page number. For text, highlight the text withIn the text box and you will see a hyperlink option.

This has enabled us to create games where choices, questions and decisions are asked of the user/player throughout. We have then used this as a stimulus for writing, not only creatively but also instruction and advertising. Above are a few screen shots of an example book I made but I didn't want to show the pupils too much as I wanted them to come up with their own ideas.

The Future of Librarianship: A Blended Perspective Apr. 10 Webinar | Blended Librarian

The Future of Librarianship: A Blended Perspective Apr. 10 Webinar | Blended Librarian | Library Matters | Scoop.it

Thursday, April 10, 2014 from 3:00-4:00pm Eastern 


The library profession is in the midst of a paradigm shift, thanks to technology and its impact on literacy and learning. With it have come new leadership roles for librarians, roles that require knowledge and skills not traditionally taught in library school programs. Blended librarianship is one way to embrace these new roles. Join Amanda Hovious as she discusses her journey toward becoming blended, and her perspective on what librarianship will look like in the (not too distant) future.

Libraries of the Future: Creating Learner Centered Collections

John Shank's curator insight, February 20, 2014 1:54 PM

The change from an environment of information scarcity to over abundance fundamentally challenges the ability of the library to select, create, organize, and facilitate access to resources that advance intellectual discovery and information literacy/lifelong learning skills. So we need to be forward thinking and mindful of how our services evolve to solve the problems and challenges this new environment creates for our faculty, staff, and students.

Tracy Shaw's curator insight, February 20, 2014 5:53 PM

This is the direction we are headed - 

Glenda Morris's curator insight, April 8, 2014 1:07 AM

A good presentation reinforcing the point that libraries need to consider creating learner centred collections - to enhance engagement and interactivity.
