Kids Prefer Paper Over Screen
As technology such as computers and tablets becoming more and more fundamental to education, there is a common perception that younger people prefer using these technologies to read. But new research has shown that paper books are preferable over electronic device based reading amongst children. With children reading fewer books than in the past, the introduction of electronic reading platforms has somewhat deterred children from reading.
We were joined by expert on the topic, Dr Margaret Merga of the Murdoch University.
