OECD educationtoday: Boys, girls and hypertext

OECD educationtoday: Boys, girls and hypertext | AdLit | Scoop.it

"In 2009 PISA conducted a groundbreaking survey of digital literacy among 15-year-old students. PISA wanted to find out whether boys and girls are as ready for the digital age as they—and we—think they are... [ http://www.oecd.org/dataoecd/29/22/49442737.pdf ]

Perhaps the most interesting finding from this assessment has to do with the difference in digital literacy between girls and boys. Since the beginning of the PISA tests in 2000, girls have always scored higher in reading than boys–and by a substantial margin: the equivalent of one year of formal schooling. While this is still true for reading digital texts, the performance gap is significantly narrower: 24 score points compared with 38 score points in print reading.

A closer look at these results showed that there was a larger percentage of boys at the highest proficiency levels in digital reading than at the highest levels in print reading, and a smaller percentage of boys at the bottom proficiency levels in digital reading scale than at the bottom level in print reading."

Boys’ love of reading | Scandinavian Library Quarterly

"Many young people in Denmark prefer reading magazines and e-papers, whereas fiction and scientific literature is less popular. This is an indication of a move towards a different reading tradition. Many boys like reading on a screen and experience and create the stories through for example a game universe. We therefore have to think differently to catch their attention. One way is to offer them different reading platforms. Smartphones, tablets, magazines, computer games, graphic novels even audio books can improve the boys’ reading skills.

One way of reaching this group of boys would be to offer them different forms of reading instead of viewing the alternative media as a barrier. Instead of fighting against different media we have to evolve with the changing reading habits of young boys."

Why boys' literacy skills lag behind girls' and how to bridge the reading gap

Why boys' literacy skills lag behind girls' and how to bridge the reading gap | AdLit | Scoop.it

Much of this is what we have been hearing forever, it seems, but make sure you get down to How To Bridge The Reading Gap. Noted literacy researcher, William Brozo, has some sensible ideas that work and are very replicable, including honouring personal choice of reading material.

..."Reluctant readers can be motivated by subjects that interest them."...
