How our schools are robbing students of the joy of reading

How our schools are robbing students of the joy of reading | Book Week Connect to Reading 2014 | Scoop.it

SCIS's curator insight, December 12, 2012 7:26 PM

'By mining and scouring books for issues and focusing on matters of suitability rather than substance, we in fact fail to teach young people how to read and what reading is for and the ways literature can enlighten, inspire and above all give pleasure.'

How technology rewrites literature

How technology rewrites literature | Book Week Connect to Reading 2014 | Scoop.it

Fom typing on a rolling stream of white space to editing in a cloud, shifts in hardware have altered the way writers research, draft, refine and, ultimately, conceive of their work. The basic mechanism may stay the same, but new tools have led to new relations between authors and the words they use. With the internet, the barrier between the writer and the world has become as thin as skin.

Interesting perspectives on how technology has impacted on the creation of literature.

flea palmer's curator insight, July 7, 10:04 AM

Interesting account of how technology has changed the writing process although it seems pen and paper is still used often!
