Curtain call – BIBLIODOS and its eBooks

As the winter slowly comes, so does the end of a beautiful project.

Almost two years after the conversation that sparked the beginning of an innovative and challenging project, the BIBLIODOS partnership is ready to say goodbye.

With more than 18 adapted eBooks, series of pedagogical dossiers and practical sheets, as well as videos in international signs and a comprehensive white book, the BIBLIODOS project is ready to facilitate, improve and increase the reading competencies of learners from all backgrounds in their language acquisition. With a special focus on learners with specific learning disorders, as well as learners with little to no reading or writing skills, this project aimed at promoting the heritage of European Literature in a educative and inclusive framework.

Let’s dive back into the universe of BIBLIODOS!

Over the course of the creation process, 18 books were selected for adaptation. From Spanish adventures to Greek mythology and French satire, the stories selected were meant to highlight different aspect of the literary European movements. Here is the list of all the eBooks that were adapted:

These stories, written into different levels were especially designed to be accessible to target audience with little to no reading competence, or reading difficulties such as dyslexia for example.  

Here, you can see an example from Frankenstein written by Mary Shelley Wollstonecraft :

  • On the left is a painting from Paul Cezanne (Young man and skull, 1898). Cezanne was a major painter of the 20th century post-impressionism movement, and his depiction of a young man with a skull really helped to capute the image of a young Frankenstein fascinated with sciences.
  • On the right, you can find a sentence written in the A1 level (Level 3 in BIBLIODOS), with a special focus on criterias from the ‘Easy to read and understand’ from Inclusion Europe
  • On the top right, you can find the setting bar, which allows the reader to change and enlarge the font, but also to modify the speed of the audio.
  • In the middle bottom, you can find the audio version of the sentence. It is read in different pace according to your setting but it can also be read word-by-word if you click on it. This is especially relevant for pronunciation and syllabic understanding.

The settings and the audio are especially important for readers with learning disorders, as they provide an alternative tool for understanding the content but are also adaptable to each learners’ needs.

In addition to the adapted text of each eBooks, a pedagogical dossier is available for each story, which provides not only a context of the author, genre and more, but also a series of workshop activities, from entry to the universe of the stories to more fine tuning exercises.

Lastly, besides the eBooks and Pedagogical dossiers, the BIBLIODOS project offers a series of practical sheets to help trainers and teachers with their skills in creating eBooks, working on inclusion and more, as well as a comprehensive White book which retraces the creation process and the different implementation steps the partnership went through to get to its final results.

So, go explore the stories that defined the European literary world, and meet Phileas Phogg, Elisabeth Bennet, Victor Frankenstein, Don Quixote, Jonathan Gulliver and many more for tea this winter!
