The influx of hypertext and hypermedia, due to the emergence of the Internet, calls into question our reading benchmarks and our relationship to the writing. It involves thinking about the reading strategies on the reading-navigation in a growing mass of information on the pluricodique activities reading and writing but also on the need to take into account the information structure . It is not unrealistic to say that hypermedia documents and new forms of reading they will induce widespread. It seems, therefore, interesting to look at this growing need for interactivity and necessary to evaluate, as of now, the consequences of these new ways of reading our report in writing. This assessment could lead to an alarmist thinking. On the contrary, we are confident that these new tools can be real assets for the writing and especially in the discovery of written language. Therefore consider the impact of reading and writing interactive children is very interesting in our time. Hypertext fiction, interactive story, hypermedia document … it is not always easy to know that behind these words. Please post some comment to tell me your opinions & Thanks;

I think this type of interactive media content appeals to older kids. My boys are more interested in playing games online rather than read e-books.

My kids haven’t tried reading an e-book yet. They still prefer books or magazines in paper form.

Hi Ayoub, In out country, Virtual reading isn’t popular since only few students got their own computers and internet at home.

It isn’t practical here in the Philippines to have such. We are one of the third world countries who are still striving to establish our economy.

Public schools here are not as high tech as yours,we do have computers in school but without internet connection. Thus, we are still using the old method in teaching our students with books and magazines to read. In fairness, we also have students here who can really afford to have this hypermedia interactivity.

But generally, most of us here even the adults prefer to read the hard copies.

My 11 yr. old just started with the e-books. He wanted something at the library and decided to look it up online and found it. He thinks it is great. But, I have noticed he doesn’t read for an extended amount of time like he does if he has the hard copy. Do you notice this with the students or other children?


Thanks, Debby

In as much us being paperless is helping the environment. E-learning has its limits. I would still prefer reading from paper. The smell of a new book is such a stimulus in itself to motivate me to read. I guess students would still prefer having a book in hand rather than reading manuscripts in front of a monitor.
