Through historic videos, compelling visuals of the story, comments from the author and protagonist, delightful interactivities, and case studies that explore bullying, this app reinvents the award-winning historical novel, Is It Night or Day?. Through a totally immersive experience, this app follows 12-year-old Edith’s journey from Germany and the Holocaust to America and resonates with the thousands of children who come to this country alone.
This new literary invention features:
• Video comments from the author and protagonist as the story develops
• Delightful animations that add to the reader’s understanding
• Stunning graphic interpretations of the story
So far, everybody loves the app:
“So many schools are introducing the iPad in classrooms, yet, little content exists for these devices,” says Amy Heber, president of Literactivity. “We at Literactivity are raising the bar on ebooks, by providing a virtual reality with rich, educational content that enhances the nature of reading.”
“The students are loving it,” says Erin Wyatt, a Language Arts teacher, who used the Literactivity program in her classroom at Highland Middle School in Libertyville, Illinois.
“…Brilliant,” says John TerMaat, former computer software developer. “I love all the different forms of media… graphics, music, sound, video, programming, etc. I can see this as the future of books, especially in education, where this media could keep the attention of kids.”
“Great!!!… I took [my students] to your Literactivity app as well,” writes Beth Donofrio, English teacher at Epiphany Cathedral School in Venice, Florida. “We made it about half way through. A number of kids asked for the link so they could finish it at home…It’s a great teaching tool.”
