- 25 October Family Literacy
- 17 November Children’s Literature goes Digital
FELA organizes again a series of professional thematic online webinars to share the insights and experiences of the FELA community with the FELA community and beyond. Topics are: Family Literacy and Children’s Literature goes Digital.
The webinars involve sharing original research, innovative practices and original insights into how e-learning and teaching have been carried out in various professional contexts, ranging across primary, secondary, tertiary, regional and national communities and in literacy associations.
The first webinar on Family Literacy will explore the approaches to reading and education that allow adults and children to learn and grow together: they develop the literacy strengths of the family and indeed of the whole community.
We will discuss case studies of good practice in Ireland, and three projects: Stories That Create Bonds (and Readers) in Switzerland, Intergenerational Reading of Young Adult Books in Slovenia and Stories make Readers in Finland.
The second webinar Children’s Literature goes Digital will explore the world(s) of contemporary children’s literature, and discuss its multimodal ways of communicating, and understanding.
We will discuss (1) a nationwide project delivering more than 60,000 language books to schools, (2) approaches to exploring and understanding children’s interactive e-books, (3) the unreliable narration in children’s literature, including new forms of literature, and apps and (4) a way to create a better reading experience on the smartphone in the form of a research-based app.
