Technology has made it possible for children’s books to be published in new and exciting formats to entice reading. Participants will be treated to a whole suite of picture books which can be maximized to enhance our students’ visual literacy, an important skill in the 21st century when we are surrounded and bombarded with so many images around us. The increasingly critical role of the visual text, and how it complements the verbal text, will be shared.
