Reading with a Technology Twist.
Burton, Anne Marie
This paper reviews the literature on the impact of technology on reading instruction, with a specific focus on language development as enhanced by the use of CD-Rom programs. The paper cites a study in which two separate groups, preschool children and third graders, were asked to talk about a story they listened to and saw on CD-Rom, providing them with an interactive reading event that included elements of listening, attending to illustrations, discussion of the story, and writing activities (for third graders only). Various programs on CD-Rom are suggested which can effect student learning by fostering enthusiasm for the computer, ease in revising writing, and generation of illustrations. The paper concludes by stating that the use of technology in the reading curriculum can also enhance children's learning experience with multiple intelligences, ranging from musical and linguistic to inter- and intra-personal intelligences. Contains eight references. (CR)
