Literacy and Digital

In this modern world we need children to have a healthy mix of reading material to boost both their reading skills and their digital skills. Books need to be worked into the mix, say some literacy experts,  because they require someone to read to the child and it’s a different way for kids to familiarize themselves with language. Tablets can help with decoding and they definitely boost children’s digital skills, but when children are left alone to read or use tablets, they’re less likely to understand what they’re absorbing.

This is an interesting conversation and needs thought and debate when children enter the school system.
