Presentation for the New York State Educational Media and Technology Association
April 5, 2012 |

On March 14, 2012, Lisa Guernsey gave two presentations at the New York State Educational Media and Technology Association's annual meeting. The first, "E-Books: Can They Improve Students' Reading Comprehension?," highlights the emerging research revolving around questions of whether electronic books, especially electronic picture books for young children, can be helpful or harmful as students learn to read. A PDF of the presentation slides can be downloaded here or from the column to the right. (The second presentation, "Digital Media and Its Impact: The Almost Impossible Task of Trying to Assess How E-Media is Affecting Today’s Students," is also available.)
