Survey: E-book Popularity Soaring, But Kids Still Love Printed Books

Survey: E-book Popularity Soaring, But Kids Still Love Printed Books | Websites to Share with Students in English Language Arts Classrooms | Scoop.it

"Children are embracing e-books by the millions, but most say they still would choose the printed version, according to a survey released today. Scholastic's biannual survey of children from 6-17 years old found e-books soaring in popularity: 46 percent of the 1,074 children surveyed said they had read an e-book, compared with 25 percent who said they had in 2010... Half of the children said they'd read more books for fun if they had better access to e-books. And it's clear that children are doing the lion's share of e-book reading at home, rather than in school: Three quarters of the children who have read an e-book have done so at home; only one-quarter said they had read an e-book in school."

eduPLEX's curator insight, January 14, 2013 8:10 PM

I love reading books made of paper - my favourite leisure....but I am reading eBooks too..they are easily accessible. eduPLEX has built up an extensive library of eBooks in a learning group called "eBook Arcade". There are some beautiful stories for young children and easy to read short novels for older children.

Didn't I post a punctuation pieces just a few days ago?

 

Someone needs to put all of these into a font so we can really use them! Doesn't seem like it would be that difficult.
