Digital Story Time

The International Children's Digital Library has children's picture books online.

Surely, there are many ways the books on this website can be incorporated into the classroom. The ICDL has a page on their site suggesting classroom activities.

The idea that appealed most to me was Digital Story Time.

If you have a standard computer projector, then try using it the next time you read a book to children (whether in a library's story time hour, in school, or at home). Simply hook up the projector to your computer, find a book in the ICDL and read with the large projected display. This has the advantage of making illustrations (and words) large enough for everyone to see – and the technical nature of the display is often engaging.
