Most of us get hold of books *iBooks, *google play, kindle ebooks, *app store These * have more capabilities because of their format.
-Activities can work with paper books too but you have the device ready -Can also turn many of the activities into not digital ones -The idea of this session is…the device has the capability to do extra things which are simple and either cheap or free. -Can be done on BYOD. iPhones etc. (wifi, free apps or phone capability)
Cert ICT > Jerian. GE and First pron, intonation, register with writing I was AM and so little time… so he did warm up and writing via web quest. Flipped.
Senario to encourage interest. Three types of writing …newspaper report, letter (formal and informal). Mary Shelley’s life, Story of Frank, Frank on film. Areas all covered by the book but he hadn’t seen the book yet. Big class… different groups could cover different areas. Report back to blog. Or do this as long term project.
Example of the research he did at home as part of the webquest. All over the internet. Personalised to Bournemouth.

Presentations etc. -Tellagami animation talking over image
Part of web quest but can be at any stage. Set up like a cambridge first or Trinity reading into writing. Jerian emailed me (authentic email or attachment = DL skills). I returned with video feedback using MailVu FCE level - formal and higher register
Three copies of same image. Lower level. Like fake phone conversations. T do the screenshots and so leave students to focus on what characters thinking / saying (other ideas)… thinking Vs saying
Motivating, sounds, interactive, glossary.
-checking understanding. Not heavy but just so that you get the story. -Autonomy - Ss more likely to read this casually than paper book.
