Något nytt i denna artikel om det "nya" digitala samhället? #digiskol

Vanessa Camilleri's curator insight, August 21, 2014 7:22 PM

People always seem to be complaining about this... our children are distracted... who wants to read when they can play games, but in effect children tend to copy their parents. By instilling a passion for reading from a young age we can try to balance out the claim that the young children do not like books or reading. One story a day... just like the apple, helps develop the creativity in children. It doesn't hurt by having the children making up their own stories and writing them together with their parents!

Med Kharbach:


Today I am introducing you to a set of awesome tools that allow users to easily select any part of a text and hear it in the voice and accent they  want. These tools can be very helpful for language teachers. Students can use them to improve their pronunciation and develop their reading skills. All these tools are easy to use and above all free of charge. Most of these tools are extensions that you can install on your browser.

Why not have your computer read aloud to you?


I see this technology as a way to differentiate the reading experiences of students.  We know listening vocabulary is always greater than reading vocabulary.  Why not have your computer read aloud to you?

Teaching Students Skills to become Better Online Readers

Teaching Students Skills to become Better Online Readers | Applied linguistics and knowledge engineering | Scoop.it

Soon after Maryanne Wolf published “Proust and the Squid,” a history of the science and the development of the reading brain from antiquity to the twenty-first century, she began to receive letters from readers. Hundreds of them. While the backgrounds of the writers varied, a theme began to emerge: the more reading moved online, the less students seemed to understand."

Reading on line...a good habit? Here to stay?

Helen Teague's curator insight, August 3, 2014 2:36 PM
Do students retain more information when they read from books rather than from digital devices? Does reading online present challenges due to distractions? Do students need to be taught skills to become better online readers?
Ruby Day's curator insight, August 3, 2014 10:21 PM

Studies show we are not reading as effectively online as we are with hard copies. This highlights the need for tools to help us read deeper online - e.g annotation type tools. This links to an interesting stuy of year 5 students using collaborative annotation software demonstrating higher performance than the control group's' paper based annotation.

Strategies for showing simple steps for researching.

Eric Coreas's curator insight, April 4, 5:29 AM
This is actually a power point on strategies for reading and writing articles from Scholarly Journals. The writer is actually a high school student and lists steps on how to do this. She writes mainly the basics on how to do this. The information she gives is pretty accurate as well. Nonetheless this writer did a god job in listing these steps because they can come in handy for people who struggle with things like this. The writer’s audience would be anyone who struggles reading and writing these articles and would like to learn the basics. The writer’s main point is to teach the reader these strategies that way they can use them when dealing with this. I think even if the this is written by a high school student it comes from a credible source because this power point has over 10,000 views. The student did a nice job in presenting these strategies.
