HOW TO RAISE READING RATES

A TECH TOOL

Reading & Technology

To counteract the distractions of sound that accompany some reading videos, V. R. Duin initially made silent reading animations. Since reading rates matter, these reading videos were designed to encourage families to raise reading rates during online activities with their children. During initial tests of these videos, she learned that sound is important to the tech experience. Therefore, to make reading fun, sound was added to most of them.


Technology helps make reading fun for readers of all media types. Reading Rates Matter in the Digital Age.

Our world has a need for folks who can read. This text does not form part of any V. R. Duin book. (39 seconds)
