5 Benefits of Digital Reading Devices for Boys

5 Benefits of Digital Reading Devices for Boys | 3D Virtual-Real Worlds: Ed Tech | Scoop.it
Boys love anything with a screen! What’s on the screen engages them, rewards them and keeps them coming back for more.

Screens = pleasure.

What boys don’t love, especially 9- to 14-year-old boys, is reading and carrying books around with them.

Reading books = pain.

The logical conclusion: encourage boys to read on digital devices (ebook readers, iPads, smartphones). Unfortunately, many parents and educators find it difficult to embrace this idea because they believe:

Boys already spend too much time staring at screens
“Real” reading only happens with a print book
