The bottom line re: paper vs. digital reading for educators?

 

Our preferences are irrelevant. Our students' preferences and needs are supremely relevant.

Artur Zygmunt's curator insight, November 4, 2013 12:37 PM

Nic w tym dziwnego. Guru copywritingu już dawno temu zbadali, że tekst w wąskiej kolumnie jest znacznie czytelniejszy niż w szerokiej (przy okazji jest bardziej motywujący do czytania, bo sprawia wrażenie krótszego).
Do tego dochodzi wielkość czcionki, odpowiedni kontrast między tłem a czcionką oraz częstsze podziały na akapity.

Formatowanie typowej książki może i pomaga utrzymaś koszty druku w ryzach, ale na pewno nie sprzyja czytelnictwu.

Dobrze, że wychodzimy z ery książek drukowanych. Czytanie na e-czytnikach może być znacznie szybsze, gdy połączy się dobre praktyki copywritingu z technikami szybkiego czytania.

Phonics Studio - A Great App for Learning to Pronounce Words

Phonics Studio - A Great App for Learning to Pronounce Words | Literacy and Learning Support | Scoop.it

"Phonics Studio is a free iPad app that has received glowing reviews from speech-language pathologists. The app provides more than 2,500 flashcards that students can use to practice pronouncing more than 200 sounds. After opening the app students select a letter from the alphabet then a sound. Each sound has a collection of flashcards. To practice pronunciation students can listen to a recording and then create their own recordings (open the preferences panel to turn on the built-in recordings). The person working with a student can mark the student’s recording correct or incorrect."

This is a great application to use! My son currently uses this app and I can tell that while he enjoys it, he is also learning.
