Children’s on-screen reading overtakes reading in print | National Literacy Trust

Research finds those who read daily only on-screen are much less likely to be above average readers than those who read in print.
Anu Ojaranta's insight:

"We are concerned by our finding that children who only read on-screen are significantly less likely to enjoy reading and less likely to be strong readers. Good reading skills and reading for pleasure are closely linked to children’s success at school and beyond. We need to encourage children to become avid readers, whatever format they choose."

 

Interesting findings in this study. It has been recorded that boys reading skills reach the level of girls if reading is in e-format or internet but these studies has not taken a look at the enjoyment of reading when in e-format. This study is worth looking into...

Anu Ojaranta's insight:

The digital materialsfand platforms are increasing in Finland and the students have partly said there is too much technology in schools. It is an odd since they are used to technology out-of-school. Do they have a need to make a strong difference between school time and out-of-school time activities?

Is a second grade student’s silent reading comprehension affected by the use of electronic texts?
