Dr. Craig Union – Show #80 – Can Ipads, Nooks and Kindles Motivate Students to Read More?

Dr. Craig Union researched how e-readers can be used with primary students to raise their reading scores. He found students were motivated to read outside of the classroom and to use Nooks at home and at school. At the end of the school year, these students who had been the lowest performing third grade students raised end of year reading scores above other end of year third grade students at that school. Listen now to find out how Dr. Union implemented the Nooks to raise reading scores and engage primary students in reading now.
