Transcript for the 9/30/12 #storyappchat: Storybook Apps & Literacy

WOW, this was a knockout chat with more than thirty participants and TONS of great links and information shared, all on the hot topic of the use of story apps to enhance and build literacy skills in children. If you had to miss it, get caught up with the 19-page transcript above, and add the weekly #storyappchat event to your Google Calendar so you’ll be sure to join us for the next one (October 7 at 9:00 p.m. ET/6:00 p.m. PT).

P.S. While the text in the transcript preview window looks wonky, it shouldn’t when you download it to your own PC and open it up with Acrobat Reader. If anyone has trouble reading the transcript, please let me know.

Chat Transcript: 5/29/11

We enjoyed a terrific chat last night. Here’s some of what came out of the chat:

@mimicross: RT @brooks_jones: I check the Digital Storytime site daily! GREAT resource for parents and anyone else who is interested in storybook apps

@A4CWSN: i would go to @ipad_storytime and @a4cwsn has videos of over 100 story books

@annie_fox: @ipad_storytime From our experience making the app is the easy part. The marketing is the ongoing task. 500K apps to compete w/

Here’s the chat transcript, if you weren’t able to join us (or if you didn’t capture all the links that flew back and forth last night). And a hearty THANK YOU to Oceanhouse Media for donating four apps to give away!

Please join us THIS Sunday, June 5 at 9:00 p.m. ET. Topic will be posted soon!

Join Us for #storyappchat THIS Sunday, 5/29

Plan to stop by during the next #storyappchat this Sunday (May 29) at 9 ET. We’ll be discussing the following topic: Finding out about storybook apps: how do you know when a great new story has been released?

Developers, this is a great way for you to find out from parents where to focus marketing and social media efforts. App review bloggers: stop by and let attendees know about your site, and your criteria for reviews. And parents: be sure to share with the group where and how you find out about new apps.

Oceanhouse Media

And as a special bonus: Oceanhouse Media has agreed to allow us to give away apps during this Sunday’s chat! You know these guys as the publishers of the Dr. Seuss, Berenstain Bears and Little Critter storybook apps.

So now you have no excuse–we will see you Sunday night at 9!
