Digital Texts and Reading Strategies

  • How can we help our students develop engaged reading skills of electronic texts?
  • What difference does it make that more and more students are doing their reading online?

This article on Digital Texts and Reading Strategies summarizes recent research on the unique features of digital texts, how people read differently online, and tools and strategies for helping students get the most out of digital texts, including essential tasks such as annotating, questioning, and summarizing.
