New in the library!
Tap, Click, Read: Growing Readers in a World of Screens is a newly released book looking at how educators and parents can help children grow into readers using media of all kinds – print, digital, and everything in between. Based on recent research, it outlines what to look for in e-books and app stores, provides recommendations on sources of reviews focused on digital educational materials, explores new approaches in early education and elementary schools, and more.
The book’s website includes additional material, including videos of projects described in the book, lists and links of recommended app reviewers, and information on the science behind the book. In the coming months, a series of tools will be available to help teachers, librarians, and community leaders take action and support early literacy in their schools and communities.
Here’s a video of one of the projects described in the book:
