Join us July 26 at 1:00 PM ET / 10:00 AM PT / 6:00 PM GMT to hear about the latest research in children’s digital publishing: How parents and children engage with e-books, learn from them and make purchasing decisions.
- Children’s publishing is turning a corner. Fueled in part by tablet technology and publishing companies looking for new digital revenue, children’s e-book sales are rising steeply in 2012.
- Yet publishers are still in need of tangible information to know what kinds of e-books children and parents engage with best, how they learn from them (or fail to learn) and what drives their buying decisions.
- In this one-hour webcast, sponsored by the Children’s Book Council, we will explore the most current academic research into how children engage with e-books, how effective e-books are in teaching children to read, and how parents and children make e-book purchasing decisions.
Attendees Will Learn
