Description - E-literature for Children by Len Unsworth

How can children's experiences of digital literature be channelled into more enjoyable and challenging classroom literacy learning experiences? As ICT continues to grow as a key resource in the classroom, this book will help practicing teachers and students of teacher education to understand the differences and similarities of the literary experience for children through classic, contemporary and innovative narratives in both book and computer formats. The ultimate aim is to enhance and explore their pupils' understanding of the 'text'. Len Unsworth draws together practical functional analyses of language and images in the context of real-life classroom learning experiences. Through this he explores: - What kinds of literary narratives can be accessed electronically? - How language, image, audio and hypertext can be analyzed to highlight the story-makers' skill. - How digital technology can enhance literary experiences through web-based 'book talk' and interaction with publishers' Internet sites. - How computer games influence the reader/ player role in relation to how we understand stories. Readers will find practical ideas and suggestions for the planning of programmes of work for children, which will encourage and provoke more innovative understandings from their pupils, whatever their level and age.
