Digitisation of Gunnai/Kurnai Story Books

kowern icon copyVACL is proud to announce the commencement of a project which will see the six Gunnai/Kurnai Story Books converted into interactive digital storybook apps. 

QBook is a range of interactive storybooks designed by Kiwa Digital for children of all ages. QBook uses iPad and iPhone to bring stories to life in a huge range of languages that combine the narrator's voice with touchable text synchronized to highlight and sound when words are swiped or touched. QBooks are a great resource for kids of all ages to develop reading and comprehension skills and can be used as part of a lesson plan or reading strategy and to help children learn spelling and pronunciation.

The books will be presented in dual language, both English and Gunnai/Kurnai, which are interchangeable allowing users to swap between languages. Users are also able to record their own narration and add this to the resource to be played back at any time. Once completed, the books will be available on the App Store ready for any person or school to download.
