The Importance of Deep Reading // Maryanne Wolf and Mirit Barzillai

  title={The Importance of Deep Reading // Maryanne Wolf and Mirit Barzillai},
  author={Maryanne Wolf and Mirit Barzillai},
The digital learner seems particularly well-suited for a life of activity and a life of enjoyment. The emphases of digital media on efficient, massive information processing; flexible multitasking; quick and interactive modes of communication; and seemingly endless forms of digitally based entertainment encourage such lives. These emphases, however, can be less suited for the slower, more time-consuming cognitive processes that are vital for contemplative life and that are at the heart of what… 


Learning to Read in the Digital Age
ABSTRACT—The digital age offers transformative opportunities for individualization of learning. First, modern imaging technologies have changed our understanding of learning and the sources and
Proust and the squid : the story and science of the reading brain
The act of reading is a miracle. Every new reader's brain possesses the extraordinary capacity to rearrange itself beyond its original abilities in order to understand written symbols. But how does
Retrieval, Automaticity, Vocabulary Elaboration, Orthography (RAVE-O)
The RAVE-O program is an experimental, fluency-based approach to reading intervention that is designed to accompany a phonological analysis program, with particular stress on facilitating the development of rapid orthographic pattern recognition and on changing children's attitudes toward language.
Reading depends on writing, in Chinese.
It is shown that the ability to read Chinese is strongly related to a child's writing skills and that the relationship between phonological awareness and Chinese reading is much weaker than that in reports regarding alphabetic languages.
The neural bases of sentence comprehension: a fMRI examination of syntactic and lexical processing.
The results suggest that many processes in sentence comprehension involve multiple brain regions, and that many brain regions contribute to more than one comprehension process, suggesting that the language network consists of brain areas which each have multiple relative specializations and which engage in extensive interarea collaborations.
Is Google Making Us Stupid
"Dave, stop. Stop, will you? Stop, Dave. Will you stop, Dave?” So the supercomputer HAL pleads with the implacable astronaut Dave Bowman in a famous and weirdly poignant scene toward the end of
The Neurobiological Basis of Skilled and Impaired Reading: Recent Findings and New Directions
In recent years, significant progress has been made in the study of reading and reading disability with the use of functional neuroimaging techniques. There is substantial converging evidence that
Cross‐cultural effect on the brain revisited: Universal structures plus writing system variation
The results suggest that these writing systems utilize a common network of regions in word processing, and the region known as the visual word form area (VWFA) shows strikingly consistent localization across tasks and across writing systems.

Toward a Theory of New Literacies Emerging From the Internet and Other Information and Communication Technologies
Reading a book changes us forever as the authors return from the worlds they inhabit during their reading journeys with new insights about their surroundings and ourselves.
