If you also want to introduce reading aspects, I highly recommend the African Storybook collection: https://www.africanstorybook.org/ all kinds of a short (like 10 pages) books for young kids.
For localhost access, you can read the books in Kolibri (a FOSS learning platform you can install on any old computer a raspberri pi). For the African Storybook channel, see this online demo https://kolibri-demo.learningequality.org/en/learn/#/topics/... and look around that demo server to see all the other channels available.
That is exactly how I would like children books to be presented.
I see that there are also some English language books. Does there exist a site in this format, with English books but with world-wide cultures?
I have been googling for it now and then but am still unable to find the 'perfect' presentation format.
1/ Global Digital Library (PDF and ePub format)
https://digitallibrary.io/ and as offline-capable Kolibri channel https://kolibri-catalog-en.learningequality.org/en/learn/#/t...
2/ Pratham Books' StoryWeaver (includes some of the African Storybook titles, and based around PDFs)
3/ Learn JS games (probably need 6+ years old for this)
4/ Videos of kids from different cultures:
5/ Educational math videos with lots of singing:
And more generally, you can see all EN channels in the catalog: https://catalog.learningequality.org/#/public?languages=en
Can I quote you on this?
Now that gets me to think about just how persuasive images are to children's minds. When I think about velociraptors I almost exclusively imagine the Jurassic Park movie velociraptors, and not these ones.
Add text and audio to pictures and you can flip the pages. That's mostly it. I also provided a couple of books myself.
(update: removed multi-line question 'where are examples?')
(all picture books with user id 'bef')
Please feel free to incorporate this in your app.
My books export to a zip file that includes a json like that. Would probably make more sense if we both would parse to something more universally used (https://schema.org/Book perhaps) and then perhaps more people would be able to use it.
But, BTW, schema.org looks quite intriguing.
I don't fully understand the wiki like edit, but not sure I need to.
Might be nice to add an index page on the space-bar press, where you have thumbnails of each slide to quickly jump to specific image.
I think I want vifero.no itself to be REALLY simple, so OOvsuOO's comment will always be relevant:
"It's pretty cool! Looked at the examples and neat! No distractions that's what we need more in the web. NO ads and distractions."
What counts as a distraction vs a feature is depending on the use case and perhaps how your brain works.
If you're trying to accomplish something like 'get quickly to that specific page', a way to quickly get to a list of thumbinals, to tap on it, would not be a distraction.
But if those thumbnails are always visible when you are just viewing the page, then it becomes a distraction.
If you have features that are perhaps hidden by default, but could be enabled in settings, you could allow the user to add the features they don't see as distractions.
Also good. I tend to take the perspective of features/impact to end users, so my feedback is about that. But great project to put your data driven back-end to a real use case as a way to learn and have fun with.
Another project that is bit 'on pause' that's perhaps more in your corner, is my attempt to set up a search engine for all charities, based on open data.
Challenge is not even so much gathering the data, but figuring out a use case to make such a search engine valuable to a specific set of users, so it will get used, get feedback and can grow.
That link does not work.
You can test it at: http://www.charitius.org/
Fixed the url in Readme.
My world is really about data structures.
"A library for building data-oriented backend applications written with .NET Core / Standard."
is what I really like to work with.
Any suggestions for how to avoid this?
(I do hope that the touch-interface was not affected by this, I only use mouse / keyboard myself).
It shouldn't affect touch events. That's a different CSS rule.
Edit: Just tried it on Firefox/Android, and it seems like it actually changes multiple pages now. Perhaps it's reacting to both click and touch on mobile?
There is an example database in the Bitbucket repository if that is what you mean.
http://vifero.no is up and running.
I forgot to set an access right.
Will have to improve ARCore also, so such an error is not so dramatic.
I am one of the few persons left in this world who still uses a dumbphone. My laptop is my primary gadget.
But pull requests with a better touch interface would of course be welcome :)
