Topic for the 8/7/11 Chat: Beyond the Story

#storyappchat topic badgeEver thought about the world of apps in relationship to other (non-story) books for kids? Although not yet as popular as storybook apps, the non-fiction book is popping up more and more often in the App Store. Recent examples include Spot the Dot by David A. Carter/Ruckus Media, Dandelions by R.A. Mildren and Our Choice by Al Gore.

As exciting as the app format can be for fiction stories, it also offers a wealth of new opportunities for non-fiction books. Let’s chat about the possibilities for creators, developers and consumers of these non-storybook apps THIS Sunday, August 7,  2011 at 9:00 p.m. Eastern.

P.S. New to Twitter chats? Check out this fantastic cheat sheet from Debbie Ohi to get you started. Several of us use either TweetDeck or TweetChat to manage the discussion–you may find these tools useful as well. See you then!
