E-Book = 6th week


(Illustrations + text = meaning)

The 6th week, what we have learned and what we need to do is an e-book. From the name itself, I know that it should involve the use of technology as it has an 'e' in front of the word 'book'. The similarity between an e-book and a book is what I have written above. In making a book or an e-book, teacher need to consider about the illustration used like the images, colours chosen and also the size of the illustration used. Besides, a book or e-book also needs text to describe the illustrations. Text needs to be simple and interesting so that it will attract children attention. By having both, illustrations and text in our book or e-book, the meaning that we want to convey will be achieved.

From the lecture given by Puan Foziah, it is clear that the important elements that need to be considered in making an e-book are the characters, setting, plot and also the theme. Besides, she also mentioned about the components of e-books like the text style, narrative style, language use and also a lot more components need to be included.

Characters are the most important elements in an e-book. Without characters, a story would not be lively and there is nothing to be narrated about. The characters may be humans or animals. When we have characters other things that need to be included are the characteristics of the characters. There are credible characters, antagonist, protagonist and also lot more types of characteristics.

Besides that, setting or the place and the time the story occurred should also be implied into the story. This is to make the story flow accordingly to what we planned to do and also to match in with the plot of the story. In the plot, we need to have the beginning of the story, the climax and also the anti-climax and resolutions.

In the other hand, what we need to do is state the theme of the story and how the story is going to go about. We need to do that because this can make us stick to the theme throughout the story and not go away from the topic planned.

All in all, all these elements and components are vital to make an interesting e-book. This process of making an e-book is important for us so that in future, we would not struggle to make a story as fast as we can. This is because, by using power point we can create a story in a blink of eyes.. Hehe.. which to say, we don't have to waste much time on preparing the story in an e-book. We just need to open power point presentation and include illustrations and some text into it to make it an interesting e-book. After all, we still need to plan the story well to attract the children.

That is all about e-book. We are also required to finish our photo editing using Adobe Photoshop and upload it in the photo bucket.

Hmm..What else? Hee..

Of course..Holiday!!!!

It should be the week where we can relax our mind a little bit from the work loads..
