Description : Taking professionals and students step by step through conceptualizing, planning, and implementing an effective early literacy program, this book focuses on preventing reading difficulties and promoting success in at-risk 3- to 5-year-olds. The authors draw on extensive research and many years of influential work in real classrooms. A comprehensive framework is delineated for helping young children construct meaning from different kinds of texts, develop key oral language skills, and learn concepts about print and the alphabet. Ideas for tailoring instruction to the needs of culturally and linguistically diverse learners are accompanied by clear assessment guidelines. The book also offers practical, how-to-do-it suggestions for setting up literacy activities and arranging the classroom environment. Concluding chapters bring the authors' approach to life with vivid depictions of a preschool and a kindergarten classroom in action.

Description : Estimates suggest that over 10 million school children in the United States are poor readers (U.S. Department of Education, 1999). Reading concerns are even more prevalent within schools serving children living in poverty. Early literacy experiences are linked to a child2s success in becoming a strong reader since the early childhood years are when the foundation for reading is established. This study involved designing, implementing, and evaluating an early literacy intervention program to increase the amount of time children and teachers spend engaged in early literacy activities. The program, carried out at a Head Start center, was evaluated by examining (a) the percentage of time children and adults spend engaged in literacy activities, (b) children2s skill gains, and (c) teachers2 acceptability ratings of program components. The data was analyzed using time series experimental design procedures. The program was successful in increasing the amount of child and teacher engagement in literacy activities, there was some evidence that the program impacted the children2s early literacy skills, and the program received high acceptability ratings. Further research is needed on formative assessment strategies that can be used with preschoolers, how to help educators design and evaluate effective early literacy programs that support all children, and longitudinal research which examines the impact of early literacy intervention on later reading skills.

Not only do the younger generation of students expect a mobile working and learning environment, but also the new ideas, technologies and solutions introduced on a nearly daily basis also boost this trend. Discussing and assessing key trends in the mobile field were the primary aims of the 13th International Conference on Interactive Mobile Communication Technologies and Learning (IMCL2019), which was held in Thessaloniki, Greece, from 31 October to 01 November 2019. Since being founded in 2006, the conference has been devoted to new approaches in interactive mobile technologies, with a focus on learning. The IMCL conferences have since become a central forum of the exchange of new research results and relevant trends, as well as best practices. The books intended readership includes policymakers, academics, educators, researchers in pedagogy and learning theory, schoolteachers, further education lecturers, practitioners in the learning industry, etc.
