Electronic Storybooks: A Constructivist Approach to Improving Reading Motivation in Grade 1 Students
Ciampa, Katia
Canadian Journal of Education, v35 n4 p92-136 2012
This study stemmed from a concern of the perceived decline in students' reading motivation after the early years of schooling. This research investigated the effectiveness of online eBooks on eight grade 1 students' reading motivation. Eight students were given ten 25-minute sessions with the software programs over 15 weeks. Qualitative data were collected from students, teachers, and parents through questionnaires, interviews, observations and field notes. The results suggest the promise of online reading software programs in supporting early readers who have reading, motivation, and/or behavioural difficulties. (Contains 2 figures.)
