Don't Throw out Paper and Pens Yet: On the Reading Habits of Students
Davidovitch, Nitza; Yavich, Roman; Druckman, Eran
Journal of International Education Research, v12 n4 p129-144 2016
This paper focuses on students' reading habits--whether traditional reading habits (print books) or modern reading habits (using a computer screen). We review the changes in students' reading habits over time, as part of other global changes, and explore whether corresponding digital pedagogies have evolved to address these changes. We examine Generation Y students' motivations and study habits, a generation that shows indications of changes in its academic values and priorities, and cracks in its research skills for a global world. We focus on a case study of the reading habits of students in one academic institution and discuss the implications of the findings for academic teaching and the academia's traditional role of training researchers.
