Getting Older Kids to Read with Longer Text Book Apps - momswithapps.com

Getting Older Kids to Read with Longer Text Book Apps - momswithapps.com | MetroMMedia | Scoop.it

I grew up with my nose in a book, and now, as a mom of a fifth- and seventh-grader, I will do anything to get my kids to read. When my son was in first grade, I led him to the library’s comic book section. As my daughter progressed through elementary school, I introduced her to Junie B. Jones and Judy Blume. Now, I include the iPad as one of our options for reading material.

 

Longer text book apps – a hybrid of a book and an interactive game – are an emerging trend in the literary landscape ...

Lets all get rich - how to become an Appreneur

Lets all get rich - how to become an Appreneur | MetroMMedia | Scoop.it

There are currently more than 4.6 billion cell phones being used worldwide, enough for two-thirds of the people on Earth. The app market is literally the fastest growing industry in history, with no signs of slowing down. Now is the perfect time to jump into the mobile game.

Common Objections

“I’m not a tech person. I have no experience in this market.”
I was in the same spot, and I still don’t know how to write code. But I found successful people to learn from, emulated their models, and hired programmers and designers who could execute my ideas. If you can draw your idea on a piece of paper, you can successfully build an app.

“The app market has too much competition. I don’t stand a chance.” 
This industry is just getting started– it’s less than four years old! What makes the app business unique is that the big players are on the same playing field as everyone else. They have the same questions and challenges as you and I will have.

“I don’t have the money.” 
You don’t need a lot of money to start. It costs anywhere from $500 to $5,000 to develop simple apps. As soon as you launch your app (depending on your sales), you could see money hit your bank account within two months.

“It’s difficult… I don’t understand it… I’m not smart enough.” 
Just like everything you’ve learned in life, you have to start somewhere. Fortunately, running an app business is far easier than almost every other type of business. Apple and Google handle all of the distribution, so you can spend your time creating apps and marketing them. And you don’t have to come up with new, innovative ideas. If you can improve on existing app ideas, you can make money.

Topic for the Sunday 8/26/12 #storyappchat: Kid Testing - Everyone Welcome! | MetroMMedia | Scoop.it

 

 

If you aren’t a writer, illustrator or developer, which currently-available apps or ebooks are favorites with your kids (either at home or in the classroom)? Let’s chat about our experiences in sharing our own development process with actual age-appropriate audiences during the next #storyappchat, this Sunday (August 26) at 9:00 p.m. Eastern/6:00 p.m. Pacific.

 

And just for fun: if it’s been a while since you got the original feedback from your kids, how about revisiting your app with them before the chat, and be prepared to share the new feedback with us. Just use the #storyappchat hashtag on Twitter to take part in the chat–see you then!

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 | MetroMMedia | 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.

Multi-touch E-books vs Apps | @theFutureBook

Multi-touch E-books vs Apps | @theFutureBook | MetroMMedia | Scoop.it

iBooks Author (iBA)= DIY.  Apple are keen for publishers to use this to create beautiful multi-touch books within the iBookstore. Simply (or not so simply) add widgets and your book can include slideshows, videos and dynamic 3-D animation.

 

And why might you do this? Well, there’s an increasing tendency for Apple to reject book apps for the App Store which might lend themselves better to the iBookstore ...

Big Stories

Big Stories | MetroMMedia | Scoop.it

Big Stories Small Towns is an evolving multiplatform documentary project first launched in 2008.

Big Stories features collaborations between small town communities and filmmakers in residence. The project is shaped through extensive local consultation and participation to create stories made by both filmmakers and community members - full of love, humour, family and belonging.

Far from tales of rural dysfunction and decay, Big Stories focuses on those caring for and creating their own community. From the Longriders in Murray Bridge, the Ngarrindjeri community of Raukkan on the shores of Lake Alexandrina, the Men’s Shed in Port Augusta to the Tampuon people of Ban Lung on the edge of the jungle in Northern Cambodia, Big Stories aims to connect local stories to build a diverse and inspiring global portrait of country life.

Financed in association with Media Resource Centre Inc and South Australian Film Corporation and Country Arts SA. Financed with assistance of Screen Australia.
