Digital Fiction and Toddler Readers at Sheffield Children’s Library

Today we facilitated a session with Anne Frost (Sheffield Libraries) as part of the Bookstart and Early Years programme at Sheffield Children’s Library. Anne, who attended our of our library staff workshops in July 2014, was inspired to use digital resources in the Storytime session. Drawing on the ASEL Report into Children’s Digital Needs and Libraries and research expertise on digital fiction from the RDF team, Anne devised a session using child friendly computer hardware and resources from a variety of websites including Bookstart, Storyline Online, and Oxford Owl.

The results of a questionnaire, which parents completed at the session, were written-up by Anne Frost.
