When we met this past Tuesday to talk about the readings, it made me think about preparing elementary school teachers who will be teaching their students to try and make sense of what has been called in research on literacy, “New Literacies”. My students will need to be teaching their students how to “read” in a whole new way. No longer is it words on the page. One assignment I added this past year to one of my language and literacy courses to address this issue is for my students to evaluate e-books. In an article I read last summer, it talked about the “seductive detail effects” of e-books for students – that is, they are more interested in playing with the different options that come with the e-books and miss the meaning of the book altogether. Therefore, we have to start teaching elementary-age students how to read these e-books, or at the very least, know what the “seductive details” are when students choose to read them. It is becoming a complex issue in teaching elementary school students how to read – to ensure they are understanding the content they are reading, and not just stuck in the “data deluge”.
