My own iPad app, Tablet Tales, is
now available free. It is a portal to my new writing especially
for the iPad, along with eight essays and articles and two of
my currently out of print books, revised and presented as ebooks.
I'll add more content from time to time. For more information
go to TABLET TALES APP.
Type Ltd, the company I worked with on the design and development
of Tablet Tales is now offering a service called "App Editions".
The service allows authors to distribute their books through
the Apple App Store in their own personalised app, in a way
that is affordable and leaves creative and commercial control
in the hands of the author. More details can be found at www.app-type.com
or by contacting email@example.com.
National Literacy Trust Conferences: Developing lifelong
readers and learners.
will be appearing as a guest speaker at three National
Literacy Trust conferences this March. In light of the
new draft curriculum being open for consultation, and
its imminent application, this one day conference will
provide teachers with practical approaches to teaching
reading across the whole school in the context of the
new curriculum. Sessions on research and pedagogy will
be complemented by a discussion from Aidan on the role
of children's literature and he will provide inspiration
for developing children as readers.
