Will the world become a stage? Or a billboard?

Will the world become a stage? Or a billboard? | Young Adult and Children's Stories | Scoop.it

This kind of application, or maybe even this one, could be truly disuptive. But, as i said in my AR keynote a few months ago, the chance of people walking around holding their phones up is unlikely to say the very least. I've tried it. You feel like an idiot. People stare at you.

 

These technologies will only really come into their own when wearables hit the market at a price that people can afford

Amen to that: It’s all about the content, not the container.

Amen to that: It’s all about the content, not the container. | Young Adult and Children's Stories | Scoop.it
'Content' - the Latin root is the same for both meanings of the word. Perhaps it stems from when the original meaning for contentment was "to be pleasantly full from a good meal." So one can only be truly content if the content was good.

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!
