Young people today are known as ‘digital natives’ and the constant exposure to digital devices is even changing the way that they think, learn and relate to others. Many parents want to support their child with learning to read and write but are unsure where to start. • Are e-books as useful as paper books? • How can I support my child with the phonics being taught in school? • Are handwriting and spelling still necessary skills in the era of digital devices and predictive text? • How can I support my older child who is finding literacy difficult? • How can I ensure digital technology helps rather than hinders my child’s learning? • And is it even possible to make reading as engaging for my child as computer games and mobile phones? All of these questions and more are answered in Teach your digital native to read and write, an essential guide for any parent or carer wanting to know how to support their ‘digital native’ to read and write in the 21st century.
