One key could be adaptation. Research suggests students may be overconfident about what they are understanding when they read digitally. Teaching them to be mindful in their digital reading (for instance, by writing down key words from the reading) may help in learning.
Another form of adaptation is happening in the realm of digital hardware and software. Modern screens cause less eyestrain, and annotation programs continue to improve. Some digital reading devices now come with tools enabling them to digitally approximate physical page flipping and multiple place-marking.
Anna Hu 's insight:
Just as just as we teach students to read, we now need to teach them to read digital texts to gain deeper understanding.
America is in the midst of a "Do It Yourself" (DIY) renaissance. Spurred on by networks like HGTV and DIY, as well as websites like Pinterest, people of all stripes are getting in on the action.
One of the hotbeds of this maker movement? Schools.
From elementary to high school, college and beyond, schools are finding new ways to use 21st-century technology to bring back shop class with a vengeance (and possibly, revolutionizing the educational experience for a new generation of students). With improved access to groundbreaking technologies like 3D printers and laser cutters, young inventors, tinkerers, builders and budding entrepreneurs can prototype and build whatever they can dream up.
In the first episode of Future Now, we'll take you behind the scenes to some of the schools on the cutting edge of, well ... cutting edges. Meet the kids using these makerspaces to invent their own futures, one 3D printed prototype at a time.
