Product description

This good practice book shows you how technology can be used to support and encourage reading, particularly reading for pleasure. It introduces technology such as blogs, wikis, RSS feeds and social networking sites and shows you how they can enhance and enrich reading. The book also shows you how to use this technology to make reading more accessible. You may have seen headlines like: Technology - with the wealth of choices and distractions it brings - is directly responsible for the decline of traditional reading, especially among younger adults. 'Our new book gives a more balanced understanding of technology and reading by explaining how you can use technology to encourage reading. The new book will raise your awareness and increase your knowledge of how to use technology to support and encourage reading for pleasure'.
