One Font Doesn’t Fit All: Text Personalization Significantly Impacts Comprehension

July 30th, 2:15-3:15 pm Pacific Time

One Font Doesn’t Fit All: Text Personalization Significantly Impacts Comprehension

 

What if, just by reading with a different text format, your students’ comprehension improved? That is exactly what readability researchers have proven. Small typographical changes to text format can enhance an individual’s ability to read quickly and accurately and to comprehend more. Personalized reading formats are the next offering in personalized learning models with the promise, if implemented for students everywhere, to improve educational, career, and life opportunities. Insights from this emerging cross-disciplinary body of work can inform the design of better learning applications.
