OK - this might be great, but we have many color blind students.

Mary Starry's curator insight, June 14, 2014 9:11 AM

I don't see color used very often on pharmacy webpages or handouts. Maybe we consider our subject matter as too serious to incorporate color.  However, color can help with learning. A key point here is to use bold, not bright!

Children, Teens, and Reading

Children, Teens, and Reading | Storytelling in the 21st Century | Scoop.it

This research review charts trends in reading rates and reading achievement over time among kids and teens in the U.S. We focus on national surveys and databases for data on children's reading habits and reading scores, looking at differences across time, and between demographic groups. We also examine the growing literature on ereading among young people, which has largely studied attitudes toward ebooks and ereading. We conclude with a discussion of key future areas of research on reading and ereading.
