Readability for All
The Readability Matters submission highlighted the opportunities created by digital reading. Technology provides an opportunity for personalized reading, allowing for a move from a one-format-fits-all approach to one tailored for the student.
Reading success creates more motivation to read, which creates more learning and the virtuous cycle repeats. Will greater reading confidence generate more success as students identify themselves as “good readers”? How many more students might be willing to go further in the education system if reading experiences are improved?
Children learning to read and older students reading to learn benefit by using apps and websites that enable the reader to personalize their text format. New readability research will inform the design of better learning applications.
“To the innovators, leaders, and trendsetters in K-12, higher education, and workforce learning who continue connecting, producing and persisting despite all challenges—a hearty hat-tip and a grand salute!”
– Victor Rivero, Editor-in-Chief of EdTech Digest
