THE IMPACT OF DIGITAL READING ON THE READING ATTAINMENT OF LEARNERS IN PRIMARY SCOOL
This research study was influenced by an area, within the researcher’s primary 6 class, that she found problematic and wanted to investigate. The learners within the researcher’s class were not attaining in reading and did not engage with reading lessons. The research explored the use of digital reading in a primary 6 classroom and the impact it had on the attainment in reading of P6 learners. The data collections were analysed and justified using a mixed methods (MM) approach to professional enquiry. Questionnaires, focus groups (FG) and assessment data were the methods used and thoroughly analysed for this research study. Findings expose the need to develop digital learning within the classroom to increase engagement and subsequently attainment in reading. Due to limited literature and research, further studies in this field would be of value.
