Last entry [Nov. 30th, 2005|01:55 pm]
The Gutenburg site/project was interesting to read and learn about because many sites on the internet offer online journals but they charge $20 - 40 for membership fees that sometimes lasts a few months or at max a year. If we knew about this site earlier we could have used it to research papers for each of our classes. It's great to know that there are free services of all kinds to help students, teachers and children such as last week's blog about the tuxpaint. It is interesting how some individuals come up with such ideas, i would have never thought of copying/distributing books and articles because the copyright dates have expired. In fact, i wasn't aware that they can expire! Light literature can be used for young children, heavy literature can be for adolescents and adults, and references can be used for post-secondary school students.

In the second article, i agree with the writers because computers should be additions to our lives, not substitutions for important components of our lives. When children read animated stories off the computer they are deprived of the ability to imagine and play out the story in their minds, in a sense, they are told what to imagine and think. Overall that can be negative for their growing minds because they do not get the chance to imagine, or create images within their minds. Personally i know i needed my mom to read with me a lot in grades 1 to 3 because my english and reading was bad. It helped when she went over the words and slowly sounded out each letter and waited for me to join in, and take over to guess what the word may mean. If i had been given the same lesson on a computer, i'm almost definate that i'd gain the same reading skills much much later such as grade 4 at the very least. Sometimes the most important things in our lives are the most simple things such as outdoor play, tactile books and tools.

simple is better

I agree that computer stories should not replace actual books. I liked what you said about animated stories just telling children what to think and emagine and also the fact that the most important things in life are the most simple. Reading and print are very important.

I also agree that online stories should not replace actual books. If online books were to be used, it could be used as an extension to a book that a child has already been in contact with. For example, if the class read the book Goldilocks and the Three Bears and has discussed the whole story THEN the students look at the story online with animations and whatnot it might not be so bad. It would be bad if they just used the online books from the start. By having actual books, children can also enhance their social skills (e.g. reading with a friend in the reading corner rather than sitting uncomfortably in front of the computer)

I agree, it's easier to point to words on paper than on the screen. I think anything on the screen may be too abtract and vague at times for all children to understand.
