Why Ebooks?

For pupils growing up in a world of constantly changing technology being digitally literate will be vital. SmartReads allow them to engage with traditional books in a digital context in order to build on traditional literacy skills as well as digital literacy skills.

Engaging Readers

Multimodal texts mix text, ReadAlong audio and film or animation to give learners and particularly reluctant readers another way to engage with the story and another route to understanding.

Moving Image Education

Including film and animation at key scenes within the text helps expand on the idea of what a text is and opens up different routes to learning. Resources and teaching ideas that focus on Moving Image Education facilitate pupils in becoming more confident in dealing with different types of text and encourage them to create their own moving image texts.
