Print Motivation for Diverse Learners

WCCLS Kids - Fri, 2014-10-17 09:08
This article originally appeared in Resource News (Vol. 30. Ed. 6), a publication of Child Care Resource & Referral in Washington & Columbia Counties.

The key to turning children into enthusiastic and curious readers starts with matching the right book with the right child. We call a child’s interest in and enjoyment of books their print motivation.

When a child connects with a book, he or she is motivated to seek out more books and put in the hard work it takes to learn to read.

Some psychologists and educators have argued that children learn best in one of three different ways:
Visual Learners find images and other visual representations help them learn
Auditory Learners respond best through listening and sounds
Kinesthetic Learners prefer to engage in physical experiences when learning.

It can be helpful to think along these lines when connecting children with books. Some children respond best to books that are packed with rich pictures. Others are drawn by books with rhythmic and musical qualities. Still others need books that get them moving and interacting in a physical way.

Here are a handful of books for toddlers and preschoolers sorted out by the learning style they support best.

Title: Don't Push the Button!
Author: Bill Cotter
Find this book at your library

A monster entices kids to push a mysterious button, leading to some wild results.





It is important to expose children to as many types of books as possible. This will help you identify their book preferences and possible learning style(s). Not all children will fall squarely within one learning style category. One child may show an early connection with sound books and then will grow to love exploring picture-heavy and interaction books.

Adobe Digital Editions and Your Privacy

News & Events - Fri, 2014-10-10 11:44
In recent days, there has been press coverage about the extent of user data that the desktop computer e-book application Adobe Digital Editions (ADE) version 4.0 collects and transmits back to Adobe unencrypted. How does this affect library patrons who borrow e-books from one of our two e-book services – 3M Cloud Library or OverDrive/Library2Go?

If you use 3M Cloud Library, there is no need to use the desktop application Adobe Digital Editions. 3M Cloud Library e-books are read via their mobile app or by a desktop application built by 3M. 3M released this statement:

Many of you have recently heard of the problems with Adobe Digital Editions and privacy, and many have asked us if we have similar problems with our system.  While we do use Adobe for DRM support, we never recommend that users download Adobe Digital Editions for reading 3M Cloud eBooks.  We have our own internally developed applications for PC and MAC which removes the need to have any 3rd party software installed to use our service.  Our technical team has confirmed that the kinds of data noted in the article below are not transmitted between the 3M software and Adobe. http://www.digitalbookworld.com/2014/adobe-confirms-its-gathering-ebook-readers-data/

If you use OverDrive (Library2Go) to download e-books, this issue does not affect you if you use the OverDrive app on a mobile device. However, if you use Adobe Digital Editions version 4.0 on your desktop computer, this may affect you, as Adobe Digital Editions software is required to download e-books from OverDrive to your desktop computer. You may choose to uninstall Adobe Digital Editions 4.0 and install an earlier version (3.0) instead, as earlier versions appear to be unaffected. OverDrive released a statement about the issue.

WCCLS is concerned about patron privacy and will continue to monitor this issue.  We will share any information we find in order to help our patrons make informed decisions about their e-book use.
