The International School Nido de Aguilas

 

 

 

As a direct response to the coronavirus pandemic, this year’s celebration of World Book Day is inviting children and people, in general, to share a story with their loved ones. By telling stories, be it in person or online, they can connect with their friends and family, and learn to love books and reading.

And Nido is joining in. Leading up to World Book Day on April 23rd, Nido’s Media Center has planned several activities throughout the month to mark this occasion. “We want to share our passion for books, reading, and knowledge and celebrate together the pleasure of reading and the difference it makes in our lives,” says Chloé Vicente, the Media Center Director.

There are several activities and events the team has prepared. From Meet the Author events from Chile and around the world to book recommendations from Nido teachers and a Bookmark Contest. Also, students will be able to book Zoom sessions for Story Time and Kamishibai. And on April 23rd, they are invited to dress up as their favorite literary character and share a picture.

For this year’s celebration, the Media Center team also wants to celebrate the potential that technology offers us as a powerful tool for promoting reading, especially in times of distance learning. “The Media Center is offering diverse, dynamic, and interactive techniques to move from a text-based to a multimodal communication culture,” says Miss Vicente.

Besides Zoom sessions and online events, technology will be present in the prize of the Bookmark Contest. The winner will have their bookmark not only printed in our 3D printers but also delivered to each person who picks up a book during May (if we are back in School by then).
