Children’s digital books and literacy apps

This SIG aims to provide a hub for practitioners, literacy educators (including librarians and literacy coordinators), digital book producers and publishers interested in children’s digital books, e-books and literacy apps.

The goal of this SIG is to promote greater understanding of the benefits and limitations of digital books for young children (aged 3-14 years); to inform practitioners about effective uses of digital books in their classroom; to guide designers and publishers interested in developing or updating their digital products and to inform policy-makers about the current evidence concerning digital books use in schools.

SIG convenors: Natalia Kucirkova, Chris Lockwood and Aline Frederico
