    Thank you for this interesting podcast. I have been keenly following the work of Dr Coiro and the New Literacies Team as I am preparing a project focused on improving Year 8 students online and offline reading comprehension. Is there a way to improve all aspects of reading comprehension through more explicit teaching of online reading?

    interesting podcast..one can never have too many resources to help and encourage students to read; and, reading online is a good way to spark interest and improve reading for young readers.

    I think the point that most stands out is to assume nothing. Thanks for the reminder!

    I find that students who read well in class from books are quite often overwhelmed when asked to read for information off a website.

    I find that given a choice, many of my students prefer hard copy. Can't really assume all are the same.

    This was am informative and practical podcast. I think as teachers we focus on teaching explicit reading comprehension strategies that pertain to text in books. When students read online they can easily become distracted by visuals and links. The complexity of reading on line needs to be given as much attention and focus as reading hardbound books.
