Why Public Libraries are the Only Thing That Matters (to me) in the Print vs Digital Debate | The Digital Media Diet

Why Public Libraries are the Only Thing That Matters (to me) in the Print vs Digital Debate | The Digital Media Diet | ebooks in schools | Scoop.it

I began this post nine months ago and have struggled to feel like it is finished. I now realize it will never be finished … no more than a river will be done flowing. It is about information, knowledge, curiosity and ultimately our humanity. In many ways, the cultural landscape is being transformed before our eyes. Our previous notions of publishing, authorship, literacy and even reading itself have changed substantially in just a few years. It is dramatic enough to make us tremble at what more may be to come …

Print vs. Digital, Research on Comprehension - Indiana State University

Print vs. Digital, Research on Comprehension - Indiana State University | ebooks in schools | Scoop.it

Research by an Indiana State University doctoral student found that students did equally well on a test whether reading from a digital book or a printed one.

 

Jim Johnson, who also is director of instructional and information technology services in the Bayh College of Education, surveyed more than 200 students. Half of the students used an iPad2 to read a textbook chapter while the other half of the students read from a printed textbook chapter. The students then took an open-book quiz with eight easy and eight moderate questions on the chapter.
