5 Tips To Be A More Engaged Online Reader

5 Tips To Be A More Engaged Online Reader | Technology and language learning | Scoop.it

The idea of speed reading has been around for decades, but there's been an explosion of speed-reading apps lately that promise to get you reading up to 400, 600, even 1,000 words per minute. But is it worth it? Are you really doing yourself a favor by blasting through e-mails at top speed?

Why Speed Reading Is Problematic

 

By using an RSVP app or even going through a speed-reading course, you can increase the number of words that you can read from 200 or 300 per minute up to and over 1,000. But there’s one serious drawback – comprehension takes a huge hit. Absorbing and internalizing the information that you’re reading takes time, and it often requires that you go back and re-read parts of passages to fully grasp their meaning.

In speed reading competitions, participants routinely only understand 50% of the text that they’re reading, which is far too low for learning important lessons or appreciating a piece of literature. Some experts even believe that speed reading a tweet would result in lower comprehension, and that’s only 140 characters.
