Children’s Responses to Hoodwinked, the movie.

Luma Balaa


Children nowadays live in a digital multi-media age and are exposed to new and cross media children’s literature with integrated experiences such as films, video, DVDs, Internet, cable TV or video games. Some educators argue that new media is harmful for children while others praise the benefits. This paper attempts to examine the effect of cross media on children’s understanding of stories. The study shows that exposing children to cross media is favourable as long as these children are equipped with the adequate learning approaches which cater for our new digital hypermedia world.
