Optimizing Learning with Digital Readers
McGowan-Koyzis, Susan; Koyzis, Anthony
Online Submission, US-China Education Review A 9 p782-788 2012
University freshman participated in this study to determine the difference in learning gains when using a digital reader rather than a traditional textbook in a participatory learning environment. The findings indicate that a combination of focused reading and participatory instruction result in increased learning, thus, challenging traditional instructional tools and delivery models. The researchers distinguish between digital users and digital learners and discuss the importance of using technology as an authentic and relevant learning tool and of teaching students to monitor metacognitive functions to suit context.
