“Can digital texts—e-books and the like—reduce the barriers that some adolescents face? That depends. Digital texts are not inherently more supportive or encouraging to struggling readers. But the flexibility and power of digital multimedia can be harnessed through proper design to provide highly individualized and highly supportive opportunities for adolescents to develop as readers.”

“Digital text and e-readers provide students with a new way to read, understand, and use language.
