Learning to read in a digital world
Understanding how to best support children as they learn to read in an increasingly digital world involves recognizing the many child- and text-related aspects of children’s digital reading experience. In the current chapter, we consider how children’s reading skills, goals, as well as the properties of digital text influence children’s reading development in digital environments. We further discuss how schools, parents, media creators, and policy makers can help shape children’s reading experience in digital contexts so that each child is given the tools, skills, and opportunities she needs to reach her full potential in both print and digital environments.
