HOW TO RAISE READING RATES
AT HOME

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 children's reading rates matter, these reading videos were designed to encourage families to raise reading rates at home, at school, at work and in the community during online activities with their children. During initial tests of these videos, V. R. Duin learned that sound is important to the modern tech experience. Therefore, to make reading fun and enhance the learning experience, sound was added to most of these reading videos.


Technology helps make reading fun for readers of all media types. Children's reading rates matter in the Digital Age. Technology enables everyone to participate fully in the process of learning and understanding content. For example, screen readers raise reading rates at home, at school, at work and in the community by assisting those who cannot see or navigate content. Young children are also challenged as they study and work to develop early digital skills.


Children's reading rates matter for modern living and learning. To stimulate learning, our reading videos are designed to make reading fun, contemporary and inspirational in both context and meaning. The goal is to encourage children to raise reading rates at home, at school, at work and in the community. The words to this video are: Those who think tech is cool really should stay in school. Our world has a need for folks who can read. This text does not form part of any V. R. Duin book. (39 seconds)
