E-Literature for Children by Len Unsworth

Book Description

As ICT continues to grow as a key resource in the classroom, this book helps students and teachers to get the best out of e-literature, with practical ideas for work schemes for children at all levels. Len Unsworth draws together functional analyses of language and images and applies them to real-life classroom learning environments, developing pupils' understanding of 'text'. The main themes include: * What kinds of literary narratives can be accessed electronically? * How can language, pictures, sound and hypertext be analysed to highlight the story? * How can digital technology enhance literary experiences through web-based 'book talk' and interaction with publishers' websites? * How do computer games influence the reader/ player role in relation to how we understand stories?
