Abstract (in English): 

As ICT continues to grow as a key resource in the classroom, this book helps students and teachers to get the best out of e-literature, with practical ideas for work schemes for children at all levels.

Len Unsworth draws together functional analyses of language and images and applies them to real-life classroom learning environments, developing pupils’ understanding of ‘text’. The main themes include:

What kinds of literary narratives can be accessed electronically?
How can language, pictures, sound and hypertext be analysed to highlight the story?
How can digital technology enhance literary experiences through web-based 'book talk' and interaction with publishers' websites?
How do computer games influence the reader/ player role in relation to how we understand stories?
