Reading for Digital Natives

Carol Soma, Blue Earth Area Schools


You can call them Digital Natives or the Net Generation, but you probably won't call them readers. With good reason, educators today are concerned about young people who can't or won't read. This presentation examines recent brain research, shedding light on exciting new methods that can be used for students with dyslexia, other learning disabilities, or even just plain apathy. It will offer ideas to improve your collection, your media program, and possibly your attitude..
