Cate Dymek's curator insight, December 19, 2013 4:11 PM

I wish we could make this a reality for adolescent readers in school! So many students are involved in video games, and they are often our reluctant readers.

 

It would be so amazing if games could be developed for school books. It would be so motivating for kids, and they could see their progress through the book by seeing their progress in the game. It would be instant gratification that books often lack for struggling readers--a video game would provide that instant feedback.

At first we started with technology, then things advanced to give birth to mobile technology and now we are living in an age of nanotechnology. Isn't it amazing how human life is developing into the unknown ?

In this day and age of digital books, library attendance is falling as people pick up their Kindles instead of paperbacks. One library in Illinois decided to win back patrons by embracing this technology instead of fighting it, says a report in Winnetka Talk.
