Presented by Carol Jago
As instruction moved online, many students had difficulty reading digital texts because they approached them as they would social media. Students are skimming and scanning when they need to be reading closely, attending to detail and purpose. Teenagers think they are studying, but in fact they are in a state of continuous partial attention — never giving their full attention to what needs to be absorbed. As neuroscientist Maryanne Wolf explains in Reader, Come Home: The Reading Brain in the Digital Age, “The great challenge now is to learn how to use both print and digital mediums to their best advantage for all. Carol Jago will offer approaches to help make this happen.
