If you are a digital native, why would you open a book to enter the world of fiction when you have the possibility to immerse yourself in the interactive universe of video games and social media? Why would you subscribe to a magazine to learn a little more about the world every month when you can get the information from an android voice assistant on your smartphone?
Have books had their last word yet? Digital age, hyper-mobilities and multi-cultural societies are renewing the experience of reading. What are the new technologies transforming this experience? How do children's books embrace the diversity of the modern world? Can reading remain a constructive and meaningful activity while adapting to today's children and tomorrow's adults?
Intended for teachers, parents, librarians and francophiles, this day conference will provide an in-depth reflection on reading in the digital age and, in a bilingual context, its purpose and practice at school and at home.
