Ideas for Using iPads for Digital Storytelling. By Sam Gliksman The following is the first of a series of excerpts from Gliksman’s book iPad in Education for Dummies.

Ideas for Using iPads for Digital Storytelling

The digital aspect of storytelling raises the art to a new level of experience. The emergence of technology and digital media has resulted in some significant departures from the traditional role of storytelling in education: Stories have become media-rich experiences. Billions of mobile devices are in the hands of people worldwide, and an ever-increasing percentage of those devices contain video cameras, still cameras, and microphones. Whenever anything of personal significance happens, it can be captured and chronicled in digital media that we edit, process, and publish. Reading and writing remain crucial educational components.

The Best Children’s Books of 2014

“I don’t write for children,” Maurice Sendak scoffed in his final interview. “I write — and somebody says, ‘That’s for children!’” “It is an error,” wrote J.R.R. Tolkien seven decades earlier in his superb meditation on fantasy and why there’s no such thing as writing for children, “to think of children as a special kind of creature, almost a different race, rather than as normal, if immature, members of a particular family, and of the human family at large.” This is certainly the case with the most intelligent and imaginative “children’s” and picture-books published this year. Once in a long while, a children’s book comes by that is so gorgeous in sight and spirit, so timelessly and agelessly enchanting, that it takes my breath away. As an endless winter descends upon Lion and Bird, they share a world of warmth and playful fellowship. “Yes,” says Lion. The Story Museum - 1001 stories from around the world.

Back in the day, when I first started teaching, when it came to reading time, the best I knew was do a story with a group of kids, then send them off with a worksheet.

The Reading Tumble

Sometimes I was lucky enough to have a worksheet out of a book that went with the series. Sometimes I hated that worksheet and made my own. Sometimes I had to make the worksheet because there was none. It used to take me hours on a Monday to set up my reading programme for the next week!! And the programme was boring with kids finishing at different times and not enough to keep them busy that meant any good learning was taking place.

The great thing about teaching is that it is an evolving thing. So I had been out a while in the real teaching world. I think this is suitable up to Year 5, but if I have a Year 5/6 or higher class, I tend to go into a contract type system to give them more responsibility and autonomy over their learning.

Technology Up to Speed: Movie Shorts and Reading Strategies

Monsters University, what a great movie. But, the short, "Blue Umbrella" really affected me. Not only did it make me feel sad for inanimate objects, but it also made me do some metacognition. I realized I was predicting and inferring the entire time. I realized this was a gem for introducing and practicing important reading strategies.
