Supporting learners with online reading skills (Code: C0736)
According to the National Literacy Trust, 16.4% of adults in England, or 7.1 million people, can be described as having 'very poor literacy skills.' There are multiple causes for literacy difficulties, but whatever the cause, students working in isolation via online learning are more vulnerable to discouragement and failure. However, technology offers many ways of supporting learners with their online reading skills. This session explores these opportunities.
