Apps in Literature-Based Classroom Instruction: Integrating Reading and Response through Traditional and Digital Media
Möller, Karla J.
Journal of Children's Literature, v41 n1 p54-60 Spr 2015
For over two decades, the field of children's literature has been incorporating more digital technologies into publication of and access to texts. From early computer and CD-ROM adaptations of print picturebooks to the extensive visual and aural interactivity of the newest literature apps, what and how children read has changed significantly in recent years. Changing also are the optics children have to respond to literature using digital tools (e.g., Damico & Riddle, 2006; Wood & Jocius, 2014). In this article, Karla Möller and Lisa Ferguson share a few of their favorite apps for supporting response to literature in Ferguson's technology-forward first-grade classroom.
