Using technology to engage reluctant readers

Using technology to engage reluctant readers | Technogogy | Scoop.it

"There’s been some recent research from the National Literacy Trust showing that more and more children are reading from the screen of an electronic device rather than from books. Surprising? Not really. When you consider that many schools offer students daily computer access and have other types of technology such as tablets and interactive whiteboards, it appears to make sense. The study shows, however, that this penchant for digital reading is “potentially detrimental to children’s reading levels”. So should we try and curb children’s enthusiasm for electronic texts?"


Via Heather Stapleton
Janet Law's insight:

This is a good read to start reflecting on how technology can cater to learning needs of diverse learners. Like it or not, technology is here to stay. As educators and parents, we have to be open minded about what really engages our children and facilitate their learning with access to these media whilst being aware of the pitfalls too and guide them as this new generation navigates their journey of learning.

Let’s hear it for audiobooks!

Let’s hear it for audiobooks! | Technogogy | Scoop.it

"Audiobooks seem to greatly appeal to many people and alienate others, who consider them, somehow, a ‘cheat’ on the experience of reading.  For children, however, they are proven literacy tool that help kids by:

 

Introducing them to books above their reading level

Improving their vocabulary acquisition, fluency and comprehension

Teaching critical listening

 

I don’t really understand all the negative flap about them, though.

I think people get too hung up on the idea that somehow audiobooks replace reading – they don’t, and should not. They are simply a different experience that allows people/kids with different dominant learning modalities (auditory vs. visual, etc.) to enjoy the art of storytelling in a way most suited to their strengths, and are especially great to use with reluctant readers to lead the back into the reading process itself."


Via Heather Stapleton
Janet Law's insight:

I think audio books are great for kids to learn the varying tones for reading. It's good model for them when they need to practise for oral. Many of our children read monotonously. They can certainly do with some interesting models of reading from these audio books. As well, audio books serve the visually impaired population and those who struggled to read. It can take the pain out of decoding and let them enjoy the book or story without the stress.

for more details. If you live outside United States also look at this link http://www.audiobooksync.com/free-sync-downloads/non-u-s-listener/

Katie Frank's curator insight, June 9, 2013 4:08 PM

I believe that audiobooks are bringing back the art of storytelling, and that the actors who record audiobooks are often outstanding.  

Also, I've been loving the Whispersync feature from Amazon, making it possible to read, then listen, between devices. It allows me to be mindful of how I want to experience a book.

Great reminders. Don't make technology the end -- but rather the means to an end.
