Ebooks in the school libaries

How are Ebooks being used in school libraries

Demetria Williams's insight:

Ebooks are the newest revolution to hit the school libraries.  As a certified librarian in Texas, I have started incorporated ebooks into my lessons.  The problem I see is matching ebooks to the students.  Many School Districts are using lexiles to help guide students to books that they can read.  How will ebooks and lexiles mash in the upcoming future?

What is digital literacy?

What is digital literacy? | preschool and technology | Scoop.it
Ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny.  This is a theory of biology that has fascinated since I first heard it in tenth grade science.  Basically, the development of an embryo reflects evolution.  While this theory was disproved, I continue to see recapitulations of evolution everywhere, including the development of digital literacy.  After reading Buckingham (2008) Defining digital literacy: What…

Media literacy for preschoolers: Explaining how the media work | Rebecca Hains Blog

Media literacy for preschoolers: Explaining how the media work | Rebecca Hains Blog | preschool and technology | Scoop.it

Media literacy is a concept that’s often taught in schools–though not often enough, in my opinion. Being media literate means having the ability to think critically about media content, as well as an understanding of how the media work. It also encompasses knowing how to create media texts yourself.

 

So, students in middle school who are learning about media literacy might be asked to think about who produced a certain media text (advertisement, movie, television show, etc.) and why. They might be asked to contemplate about whether they agree with the content–with the messages and values it conveys. For example, is an ad or program portraying certain people in stereotypical ways? If so, what problems do they see with that practice? In some programs, they might even be handed a digital video recorder and taught how to edit their footage together on a laptop, to create their own advertisement about something they care about.

 

Although most research about media literacy focuses on children’s classroom experiences, I believe it’s never too early to begin fostering media literacy. Media literacy can happen at home. Parents can talk with their preschoolers about the media in age-appropriate ways, giving them tools to help them think critically.

 

Unfortunately, there’s not much research out there on parent-based media literacy–but from speaking with other parents, I know it’s happening in a lot of homes. Now, some families may not think of the conversations they have with their little ones about the media as “media literacy.” It’s not a term that everyone is familiar with, after all. But if you’re talking with your child about what is happening on screen, and why, chances are you’re helping your child become a media literate individual.

Cen Campbell is a children's librarian for the Santa Clara County Library District. She has developed an archetypal early literacy program, Tablet Tales, that incorporates digital media into traditional storytelling. Cen is an advocate for a librarian's use of digital media (apps + eBooks) to enhance existing literacy learning programs. She believes children's librarians should become industry leaders in evaluating, curating and recommending interactive, tablet-based technology to parents and children in their communities. You can also find Cen on her early literacy blog Little eLit.
