In today’s learning environment, educators are finding that digital devices hold benefits for engaging students in learning. However, they also have discovered two unique learning challenges that are now surfacing when students read using a computer or digital device:
1. People read up to 30% slower online than on paper. This position is supported by research conducted by by P. Zaphiris, and S.H. Kumiawan, Wayne State University (http://bit.ly/1oJT2wW)
2. Reading comprehension appears to be suffering as students read content online. This position is supported by Benjamin Herold in an article in the May (2014) issue of Education Week, in which he states “…Comprehension may suffer when students read on the digital devices now flooding into classrooms, an emerging body of research suggests.” (http://bit.ly/1qPXf49)
