Things Young Children Can Do with an Electronic Talking Book...Maybe.
It has been suggested (Labbo, 2000) that CD-ROM "electronic talking books" may be helpful in supporting the literacy development of young children. However, teachers are often short of strategies for using these relatively new resources. In this paper based on a workshop, the strategies suggested by Labbo and others are investigated. Problems teachers may face in implementing these strategies are also discussed, as are some possible solutions to these problems. (RS)
