S Some examples OLIVIA Paints (iOS) “Young children’s earliest encounters with print narrative are based in a multimodality that includes orality, visual literacy, performance, and interactivity, and embrace a range of experiences that are socially constructed.” (Madej, 2008) Scholastic study conducted (USA) last Fall:
About 25% of kids aged 9 to 17 years had read a "book" on a "digital device" in the past
57% said that they would be interested in doing so in the future
Only 6% of parents surveyed owned an e-reader
16% said they "planned to buy one in the next year"
83% of parents would "allow or encourage their children to use the e-readers" Resources
