Continuing/skilled (PISA-age) reading
International assessments (e.g., PISA 2009, 2012; PIRLS 2011) have underlined that the increasing literacy demands of everyday life demand improvement of the reading skills of all students, not just those in difficulty. Individuals of all ages are increasingly exposed to information in a wide range of digital forms and sizes (smartphones, computers, tablets, e-readers, interactive whiteboards) that needs to be visualized, read and understood in order to be used. Some devices are specifically dedicated to reading activities, such as e-readers; for others (e.g., smartphones) reading seems to be a secondary function. The features of these devices must be studied specifically during reading activities.
