Reading comprehension, electronic texts, and the digital divide

Reading comprehension, electronic texts, and the digital divide | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

What is the nature of literacy in the digital age? For those of us interested in new literacy studies and new literacies, that question is all you need to spark an action-packed evening conversation (or a semester graduate course for that matter). For this reason, I was delighted to see John Jones’s recent article on the DML Central web site (See “How Does Electronic Reading Affect Comprehension?“) and his announcement of a forthcoming article that will further explore this subject. The DML Hub is a high-traffic site that garners visits from plenty of practitioners, so placing the conversation on this site engages people who want to think about the practical implications for teaching and learning.  Jones summarizes and critiques a paper by Ferris Jabr in Scientific American, where Jabr compares reading comprehension on paper and on screen.  As reported by Jones, Jabr argues that paper text continues to have more affordances when it comes to reading comprehension.

7 Fundamental Internet Search Tips | Education World Community | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

I was pondering as to what I should post this week on my blog.  What could I give to teachers that would be of some assistance to them as they teach their students?    As I thought about how teachers today are trying to use technology in their classrooms, I thought about computers and the internet… then it hit me!  Search engines!  Some of you are either going to assign research assignments and what better way to incorporate technology than to have your students use the internet for their research.

The most important ingredient in successful user adoption

The most important ingredient in successful user adoption | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Most eLearning development and organizational change has to do with getting people to take action. This is obvious, yet people often lose focus from the ultimate purpose and get distracted by shiny bells and whistles. Cathy Moore explains this well in an article about action mapping. Whether it is applying the skills they learn from a course or learning to use a new system, if there is no potential future action to be taken after an eLearning course is complete, what’s the purpose of the course?

¿Cómo leemos en línea? Una guía para los profesionales de eLearning

¿Cómo leemos en línea? Una guía para los profesionales de eLearning | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Diversas investigaciones acerca del cerebro abren nuevas oportunidades que los diseñadores de eLearning pueden aprovechar al máximo. Una de esas oportunidades está en cómo las personas  leen en la web.

 

Estudios que siguen los movimientos oculares y los puntos de fijación, mientras los lectores miran contenidos en la web, encuentran respuestas a preguntas como:

 

¿En dónde centra su atención la gente cuando lee en línea?¿Cuándo leen las personas y cuándo “escanean” el contenido?¿Cómo podemos animar a la gente a leer más en la pantalla?

 

Esta guía debería ser suficiente para ayudarle a aprovechar los últimos estudios científicos y crear un curso eLearning efectivo – con contenidos que las personas realmente lean y se identifiquen.
