We want to hear from you! Share your experiences using digital book apps with your kids! Which interactive features do you value most?

  7. Dear Oceanhouse Media,

    I enjoy the collaborative process. Your topic is one of great interest for me personally and professionally. I support your work as does my company. I would love to attend your twitter party to add to the discussion, but I am teaching a school staff about the Math CCSSI model and working on aligning their math curriculum until 530 today.

    However, my children enjoy your apps! My daughter had a hard time utilizing traditional books and flashcards to sound out words. As a mastered educator, with most of my educational background be rooted in phonics and reading, this concerned me. My husband and I downloaded a few of your apps and within a week, her dendrites were firing and she was making connections between the sounds and words. No kidding, it was a teachable moment for this old teacher!

    I am fortunate to be able to travel and work in schools across the United States and I see the need for us to maintain paper books but to also embrace technology in ways never imagined as learning tools. Your “Generation App” is cutting edge and speaks to the 21st Century student. If we are to move forward and truly differentiate our instruction, we as educators need to embrace these advancements. I personally and professionally applaud your efforts on behave of our children, our future!

    I wish you a productive and informative meeting. Please share dialogue and let inform me where to go to get it.

    May we continue to seek knowledge in all things,
    Denise

    I found it to be a very interesting session.
    I think Moms With Apps had the most right-on comments – i.e., parental involvement is the key to reading ability development.
    Thank you
