How multiscreening is empowering a digital generation

How multiscreening is empowering a digital generation | E-Publishing for the Digital Generation | Scoop.it

Television no longer has a stranglehold on a device-empowered digital generation.

 

Breaking news: research shows 70 per cent of people can do two things at once. Shocked? I doubt it, and I'm guessing you're not frantically memorising this statistic as a dinner party conversation-starter. So why is this research considered so jaw-dropping when it relates to the 70 per cent of people who are using their mobile phones and tablets while watching television?

I'm more surprised it's only 70 per cent. What are those other people doing with their hands? It only takes one hand to drink a cup of tea and even if you throw in Scotch Finger biscuits, you can still check Instagram.

Some worry that browsing while watching TV allows producers to get away with bad content because people can distract themselves with the internet rather than turning off. But I don't worry about this because TV producers aren't stupid, and I'm inclined to bet all this ''second screening'' will have the opposite effect. Television now has serious competition on the couch and that will raise the bar (and value) for compelling content, not lower it.

Whereas most adults passed signifitcant milestones before the internet invaded all aspects of daily life, young people today can barely, if at all, remember a time when it didn't exist.

 

Anyone aged over 35 today would have left school or university, got their first job and maybe bought some property long before Google or Facebook were household names. Children leaving school this summer weren't even born when Google launched.

 

The media habits this internet-savvy "millenial" generation pick up now will stick with them as they become the big spending, high-worth consumers of the next few decades. Here's what you need to know.

How Does Electronic Reading Affect Comprehension? | DMLcentral

How Does Electronic Reading Affect Comprehension? | DMLcentral | E-Publishing for the Digital Generation | Scoop.it

"Although electronic texts have been with us for many decades, in the past few years electronic reading has become increasingly popular. The ready availability of mobile, connected devices like smartphones and tablets, along with dedicated ereaders like the Kindle and Nook, have moved electronic reading out from behind a desk into the environment. This change has brought increasing attention to the differences between reading in print and reading via digital devices."

At our college of pharmacy, many of the textbooks are available to students as online versions through Pharmacy Library or AccessPharmacy.  Few students actually purchase the textbooks to read. While some in education are arguing there is a benefit of paper over electronic, others question that conclusion.  


Is there a benefit in terms of comprehension and retention of the information if it is being read on paper versus on an electronic device? That is an excellent question we need more research on!!

Charles Tiayon's curator insight, November 13, 2013 12:46 AM

Brain researchers have long studied how students hear and read individual words, but it has proven difficult to parse out what happens when a reader understands a long and difficult passage of text.

Now, a team of researchers at Northwestern University in Evanston,Ill., have developed a new way to view reading comprehension in the brain, and in the process highlighted a new angle for testing comprehension that isn't skewed by a student's background knowledge.

In the study, published in the November issue of the journal Frontiers in Neuroscience, Julia A. Mossbridge, a research associate at Northwestern, and her colleagues there monitored college-aged readers using electroencephalography, in which electrodes placed on a person's scalp measure electrical activity in the brain in response to specific actions, such as hearing a sound or reading a word.

What is a Book App vs an eBook? | The Book App Alliance | E-Publishing for the Digital Generation | Scoop.it

There is plenty of confusion over the subject of eBooks when it comes to what defines them. Any book published in a digital format is generally referred to as an eBook.

 

But there are big differences when you look at the formats, how the book is created, how the book is sold and delivered, and how the reader uses or interacts with it.

Can the Digital Generation Do Anything Right? | Education Week News

Can the Digital Generation Do Anything Right? | Education Week News | E-Publishing for the Digital Generation | Scoop.it

Last week, the news media, including Education Week, wrote about a new study from the Pew Research Center surveying 2,000 teachers on how their students do research in the digital world. Many of those teachers, 77 percent, believed digital tools have an overall positive impact on research, but 87 percent said the tools were a distraction causing short attention spans.

 

This week, a new report from Project Information Literacy (PIL), a large-scale study into adults' research habits, suggests that concern for the competency of the digital generation extends into the workplace, where young people are often hired for online dexterity but, employers say, don't know how to go beyond Google.

 

"[T]hese educated young workers seemed tethered to their computers. They failed to incorporate more fundamental, low-tech research methods that are as essential as ever in the contemporary workplace," says the report, "How College Graduates Solve Information Problems Once They Join the Workplace." The report is sponsored by the Institute of Museum and Library Services, in collaboration with the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University.

 

The report surveyed 23 employers and 33 recent college graduates, who exited college between 2005 and 2011. It's not a large enough sample size to make any sweeping generalizations about how the "Net Generation" solves workplace problems (there is a proposal for a longer, quantitative study). But some of the responses show a persistent gap between the skills employers expect from new hires, and what they are actually being taught, and suggest deeper tensions between generations within the workplace.

The central issue is that kids today look pretty much the same as we did growing up, which belies the fact that on inside they are completely different.

 

Because of digital bombardment and their pervasive exposure to digital technology—exposure that primarily happens outside of school hours—our kids’ brains are literally being “rewired” on an ongoing basis. Their brains are constantly adapting to accommodate all the technology they spend so much time surrounded by.

 

They are what Canadian futurist Don Tapscott calls “screenagers”—the first generation that has grown up with a computer mouse and the assumption that images on a screen are to be interacted with. These technologies are their new learning tools and also are something to project their very identity onto – what writer Marc Prensky calls “digital natives.”

Reading Comprehension Just as Good Using a Kindle as Reading on Paper

Reading Comprehension Just as Good Using a Kindle as Reading on Paper | E-Publishing for the Digital Generation | Scoop.it

A significant milestone was passed last August when Amazon announced that sales of books on its Kindle e-reader platform outstripped print sales for the first time. There's no question that e-readers are convenient - you can load a single device with thousands of titles. But some commentators have started to question whether digital reading has adverse effects on memory and comprehension compared with reading from print.

In 2010, a reassuring study in fact found no difference in recall after reading material electronically versus paper. Now Sara Margolin and her colleagues have looked at reading comprehension and again found no deficits in understanding of material consumed on a Kindle or a computer versus paper.

A new study has found 10 and 11-year-old boys who used technology in their reading comprehension learning made gains of up to six times the nationally expected average.

College Street Normal School in Palmerston North partnered with Massey University’s Institute of Education in the research that studied four classrooms - two year 4 classes and two year 5/6 classes - over the second school term.

The study focused on one curriculum area, reading comprehension, to see if technological use made a difference to learning. Principal Ross Kennedy says the school has increased its expenditure on IT in recent years, and it wanted to find out the impact ICT had on children’s learning outcomes.

Two classrooms used technological devices such as laptops and iPads in their reading comprehension programmes, and the other two did not.

I think it's great that kids will concentrate more on the words when highlighted and read to via the recording. Nice for their enhanced learning. But I would definitely like to see this approach balanced with direct parent/child reading. There is significant bonding that can take place that is just as important, if not more so, than the learning that occurs.
