What affordances does eReading offer?

eReading: How is reading changing with the advent of eBooks?

Jamie McKenzie reflects on the advantages of reading a digital text:

"Thanks to digital text and readers, the electronic book is finally coming of age. After many false starts, reading a book on a laptop, a Kindle, an iPad type device, or a smart phone offers some great advantages.

Teachers would be wise to test out this kind of reading in their own lives first and ask how it might enhance the comprehension and learning of their students."
