Evidence increases for reading on paper instead of screens - 2 views

  •  
    "[S]tudies point to better reading comprehension from printed material..." (deck). "[R]esults from 33 high-quality studies that tested students' comprehension ... showed that students of all ages, from elementary school to college, tend to absorb more when they're reading on paper than on screens, particularly when it comes to nonfiction material" (Barshay, ¶¶ 3-4). That is, without the extra bells and whistles that digital texts can potentially offer" (¶10). "Still, there isn't yet convincing proof that the digital add-ons improve reading comprehension or even match the reading comprehension that students can achieve with text on paper" (¶12). Barshay, Jill. (2019.08.12). Evidence increases for reading on paper instead of screens [online news report]. https://hechingerreport.org/evidence-increases-for-reading-on-paper-instead-of-screens/

MultiBrief: Effectively incorporating technology with English learners - 2 views

  • Perhaps the first consideration is the instructional purpose of the lesson, and how the technology will enhance that purpose or help students to achieve the goals and objectives of the lesson.
  • Technology, as mentioned earlier, has the power to increase student knowledge and skills in various content areas. Yet another consideration that must be taken into account when working with English learners is how the technology is increasing academic language knowledge and skills. It is critical, then, that teachers take into account not only the content goals and objectives for the lesson, but also the language goals and objectives as well as the linguistic demand of the tasks students will need to accomplish in the classroom.
  • English learners need additional instructional supports or scaffolds, including providing students with necessary background knowledge that other students may possess, using graphic organizers, pictures/visuals, demonstrations and realia, and providing redundant information and differentiated instruction based on students' language proficiency level. When researching various technology tools, it is critical that we investigate how the tool addresses these principles.
