Reading Matrix: An International Online Journal, v8 n2 p124-132 Sep 2008
Advances in technology have caused a major shift in how students spend their time and challenged curriculum development to maintain interest and focus in the classroom. Implications are most profound in issues related to literacy due to a lack of experience and interest in reading. This article explores this issue and how it relates to teaching new vocabulary and choosing course content. Basic precepts include the importance of relating new information to prior knowledge and linking course content to topics that hold student attention.
