If it is professional reading I prefer ebook format; easier for curating notes, highlights, comments. Pleasure reading I prefer paperbook.

If only I could give a correction without making my own typo haha
Marvyn Anthony
27:15
@magdalena yes, the recording will be sent out to attendees and registrants!
Bret Biornstad
27:25
Great tool, thanks I'm going to use that.
Michelle Green

Yay! Michele!
Susie Highley
28:25
Hi, Michelle!
Marvyn Anthony
30:21
Hi Amber, Yep! We’ll be sharing the recording with attendees and registrants.
Michelle Green
30:34
That distraction of chasing hyperlinks is exactly why we need to learn how to navigate and teach those skills to our students
Tim Decano
31:07
surprisingly for me I do remember where certain details are even if I am reading online texts
ANSHULA DUA
31:10
@marvyn sir will we be getting certificate for participation in webinar?
Emily Silverman
31:11
When you're talking about digital, are you including pieces in iBooks, Kindle, and Pocket, for example as well as "live" pages or "live" pages only?
Marvyn Anthony
31:13
Interesting!
Marvyn Anthony
31:54
@Anshula Yep! Attendees will receive a certificate of attendance.
Bret Biornstad
32:13
I wonder about the characteristics of the samples these research studies are based on? It seems factors such as age and familiarity with tech would influence a study. I'd also be interested in long term research since the Kindle for example is only about 12 years old.
Deborah Schiano
32:22
@Emily would love to hear Michele’s answer to this. Personally, I find that my concentration treading digital books is just as good as paper.
Virginia McGregor
32:26
How does all this affect online achievement testing for children where they have to scroll and read and answer questions?
Lauren Kocher
32:44
There are so many great questions in the chat! We'll have time for Q&A at the end, so definitely keep them coming!
Bret Biornstad
33:15
I like your question Virginia.
Karen Janowski
33:29
Could she turn on closed captioning, please?
Emily Silverman
33:53
@Deborah... : ) Same for me. And it's super easy to make notes. I know research that indicates physical writing notes has more impact than highlighting. Still, flagging things while in the midst of reading allows me to keep the flow and return to spots later.
Susie Highley
33:57
In most of my online reading of eBooks, every page looks the same. I don’t think I recall as much. In a print book, I might remember things like which side of the page it was on, etc
Lauren Kocher
34:02
Hi @Karen, unfortunately Zoom doesn't have live captioning, but the recording will come with a transcript!
Virginia McGregor
34:03
Would a notebook computer, phone, and desktop size of computer make a difference in the reading ease and comprehension?
Karen Janowski
34:28
If she is presenting with Google Slides or Powerpoint, she can turn on CC
Deborah Schiano
34:41
Yay! I’m so an advocate of digital annotation tools for students!
Marvyn Anthony
35:10
Thanks for all the great questions, everyone! I’m keeping track of them. And we’ll have time to address them at the end!
Tilly Ramirez
35:13
Im guilty of actually just buying a kindle for myself because I found out about myself that I prefer audiobooks then I do regular books because I focus more with an audiobook
Deborah Schiano
35:16
@Virginia that’s exactly why I think I’m better with digital books. Love black background and white text
Karen Janowski
35:34
How about students who are dyslexic who have a difficult time comprehending paper text
Deborah Schiano
35:50
So agree! We need to teach kids how to teach digital text effectively!
Susie Highley
36:11
But research is showing that annotation and notes are not as effective for brain retrieval
Karen Janowski
36:34
There is a also research about the visual presentation - more white space, different font, use of colors, larger margins, you can’t do that with paper text.
Katie Gallagher
36:35
My son who is in college tends to rent a digital text for text books to save money and the ease of access
Tilly Ramirez
37:23
Ive always preferred reading physical copies of books then I have to reading an ebook but I’ve recently switched
Bret Biornstad
37:48
So, now I'm thinking I should not depend on the layout of a particular vendor if I have control over that.
Colleen Bergin
38:05
I always prefer reading a physical book as well - I tend to read physical books for fictions and enjoyment, but read non fiction - news,etc. digitally
Christine Diaz
38:46
Hello. Highland, Ca
Karen Janowski
39:21
Crucial to use the Readability tools to reduce the visual clutter
Bret Biornstad
40:06
Is there a course or a template with these design tips in mind?
Karen Janowski
40:16
Also, can easily annotate with Diigo which saves the annotations and makes them easily searchable
Marvyn Anthony
40:20
@Luna Yep! A recording will be sent out about 24 hrs too attendees and registrants.
Deborah Schiano
40:28
I love the extension Print Friendly PDF https://www.printfriendly.com/ It makes a PDF out of any webpage. Also Beeline Reader https://www.beelinereader.com/
Bret Biornstad
40:55
@Karen I need to get back to diigo
Marvyn Anthony
41:00
Great question, Bret! I’ll make sure Michele has a chance to answer after the presentation.
Deborah Schiano
41:15
@Karen Do you have a dig education account in your district. I think it allows more options
Amanda Fogelman
41:17
@Marvyn can we get a copy of slides at the end as well?
Karen Janowski
41:42
@bret - we need to show it to students to add to their tech toolkits for middle, high school and beyond
Bret Biornstad
41:47
@Marvyn A copy of this chat too?
Lauren Kocher
42:04
@Bret the chat is archived with the recording!
Marvyn Anthony
42:32
@Amanda we can ask if Michele can share the slides :)
Bret Biornstad
42:39
@Lauren Thx
Karen Janowski
42:43
@Deborah - I’m an assistive and educational technology consultant so I recommend = I work in a number of districts in the Greater Boston area so I don’t work in just one.
Jahlen T.
43:23
Less is More 😊
Karen Janowski
43:41
Actively Learn is an awesome tool to promote understanding. Is anyone using it?
Marvyn Anthony
43:43
@Jahlen you said it!
Deborah Schiano
44:24
At the HS level, what I find is that teachers don’t expect sustained reading except in ELA. Students are hunting and pecking for needed info. Problematic.
Michelle Green
44:26
Is anyone using Diigo free accounts with students? I’ve been away for a few years.
Karen Janowski
45:16
@Michelle - I recommend it and show students how to set up their own Diigo accounts and use the annotation and outlining features.
Michelle Green
45:21
you can scaffold in digital format too
Deborah Schiano
45:27
So agree! Both kinds of text.
Lauren Kocher
46:05
Yes I can hear you!
Sara Snider
46:06
Yes!
Emily Silverman
46:08
Yes, a bit fuzzy.
Danielle Fried
46:12
yes
Marvyn Anthony
46:15
@Laura - That’s fine, feel free to share!
Tim Decano
46:18
but it feels like she is farther away from the mic
Bret Biornstad
46:28
Darn, Diigo not approved by my district for student use
Tilly Ramirez
46:37
Yes it’s better now
Michelle Green
46:52
Bummer. Bret. I wonder the rationale.
Michael Williams
46:53
Student assignments could be joining crowdsourced projects from the Library of Congress listed in the master educational list Google sheet https://bit.ly/3aJeCgpHave a favorite YouTube channel or Edu Resource? https://forms.gle/gKjB41Jo5t4EkNwv5https://youtu.be/B5mvQfjeBYE?t=50
Karen Janowski
46:53
@Bret - what do they recommend instead? There is an edu version
Deborah Schiano
46:59
@Bret wondering what state you’re in that needs district approval
Marvyn Anthony
47:40

I agree - the slides are excellent. Would love to know what you used!
Marvyn Anthony

Lourdes Flores
01:02:55
Very informative presentation. Thank you.
Laura Moak
01:02:59
During digital learning days, any ideas on how you have students annotate on paper submit their papers?
Susie Highley
01:03:29
Microsoft Immersive Reader has so many accommodations for digital
Virginia McGregor
01:03:29
Many students do not have skilled keyboarding skills. They hunt and peck while trying to think about what they want to say.
Bret Biornstad
01:03:42
I think I need to ask my admin where they goit there research; they told me not to have my learners toggle between screen and paper notes
Victoria Costello
01:03:47
Your presentation was excellent -- I've taken 4 full-size pages of notes. Thank you!
Cecelia Fuoco
01:04:03
Thank you, Michele, for sharing such helpful information.
Karen Janowski
01:04:15
I would love to speak with you after this. This is my passion!
Jennifer Kilburn
01:04:22
Read and Write Gold is an extension that can be added and provides a lot of accommodations for students. We use it board-wide.
Patricia Ames
01:04:29
Thank you...this will be very helpful for our teachers...can I share this with them?
Kathleen Sheehan
01:04:30
My school uses whiteboard desks for that back and forth she spoke of.
Katherine Walters
01:04:40
Any suggestions for how to help kids monitor their comprehension as they read an online text? (i.e. “stop then think”) I teach second grade.
Michael Williams
01:04:59
I have several programs listed for visually impaired and SE tools for reading listed in the Google sheet https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1qjLAHdSWvXlAnNwmMHXpvI7cTGe0p-x-UvTs_bukwbM/edit?usp=sharing
Karen Janowski
01:05:06
@Katherine - have you looked into Insert Learning? - created by a teacher
Sara Snider
01:05:25
That would be powerful to model for kids
Ollie Bogdon
01:05:25
I've always heard that black background with YELLOW text is easiest for the eyes to read.
Susie Highley
01:05:26
And you don’t have to be on Microsoft products to use Immersive Reader. It’s incorporated into Flipgrid and several other platforms, and can be connected to a google acct
Sara Snider
01:05:36
Showing them that teachers skim and scan at first, too
Karen Janowski
01:05:43
We need to think universal design and understand that paper text can be the disability for some students!
Katherine Walters
01:06:10
@Karen I haven’t. I’ll have to check it out!
Amanda Fogelman
01:06:13
There's also the Immersive Reader extension that is awesome and you don't need to be logged into Microsoft
Karen Janowski
01:06:18
Color combinations are student specific. We can show them the options and allow them to choose what works for them.
ROEL CYRUS MAGPANTAY
01:06:32
do you recommend primary graders to learn reading thru digital texts?
Yannik Blier
01:06:53
How did you choose the fonts and colours you use in your digital content? What kind of questions did you ask yourself to choose?
Karen Janowski
01:07:28
And Immersive Reader is built in to the Edge Browser!
Michael Williams
01:07:47
For students that don't have reliable internet, look at Internet-in-box/usb drive listed in the Google list, also ziplinks to download khan academy, many many resources
Amy Fowler
01:08:11
This has been great, Thank you so much!!!
Megan Smith

HI YANNIK!!!!!
Laura Moak
01:09:45
What was the first source for choosing colors?
Karen Janowski
01:09:56
It’s also important to add Alt Text to describe the images
Yannik Blier
01:09:58
Hey @Deborah ;)
Katherine Walters

Tim Decano
01:13:58
can you send it in again @michael
Karen Janowski
01:14:10
Do they have borders @Tim? For example, the books in this image onscreen do not have the border - it’s a great look.
Tim Decano
01:14:45
@karen you've got lots of options there so i believe there would be images that look like this too in those stockphoto sites.
Karen Janowski
01:15:01
Thank you @Tim!
Michael Williams
01:15:05
I prefer modile learning over online learning, when people do online they are in bedroom, library or coffee shop, but with internet enabled you can go to Musuem and learn art history etc
Tim Decano
01:15:31
pixabay even has an option for you to search illustrations if you're looking for more cartoon-y type of materials.
Tim Decano
01:15:35
yes canva!!!!!
