Using Smartphones to Supplement Classroom Reading
Bromley, Karen
Reading Teacher, v66 n4 p340-344 Dec 2012-Jan 2013
Supplementing classroom reading with smartphones can develop better vocabulary knowledge, comprehension, technology skills, and writing. This article connects smartphones to reading complex, informational text and the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). The author suggests that smartphones motivate, scaffold comprehension, and invite investigations that allow students to engage with authors, illustrators, and each other in ways that invite deep and thoughtful reading.
