As ICT continues to grow as a key resource in the classroom, this book helps students and teachers to get the best out of e-literature, with practical ideas for work schemes for children at all levels. 

Len Unsworth draws together functional analyses of language and images and applies them to real-life classroom learning environments, developing pupils¿ understanding of ¿text¿. The main themes include:

  • What kinds of literary narratives can be accessed electronically?
  • How can language, pictures, sound and hypertext be analysed to highlight the story?
  • How can digital technology enhance literary experiences through web-based 'book talk' and interaction with publishers' websites?
  • How do computer games influence the reader/ player role in relation to how we understand stories?
Len Unsworth is Associate Professor in English and Literacy Education in the Faculty of Education at the University of Sydney.
