As teachers we should include technology in our repertoire of reader response.
The internet allows teachers and students to expand their understanding of themes by using various sources.
Encourage students to be more literate by teaching search techniques.
Some readers are easily frustrated when unable to find answers or text immediately. Teachers should model how to perform thorough online searches because new literacies are necessary to navigate hyperlinks successfully in ways that enhance comprehension.
Computer supported environments have been found to engage readers labeled at risk or learning disabled in ways that may help compensate for inadequate reading ability.
Supportive accessibility features and online instruction prompts embedded within authentic sources of fiction and nonfiction can cause reading disabilities to virtually disappear.
Audio recordings and video clips support readers with stronger auditory tendencies. There is also interactive comprehension tasks which provide practice and reinforcement for vocabulary, recall, sequence and giving details.
