Digital reading in PISA 2009

Digital reading has different features to print reading

and makes new demands on readers

• Different kinds of texts

• Mixed texts, including short pieces, diagrams, graphics, fragments

• Interactive texts, where readers can change, add to, or create their own

texts

• The reader has more responsibility, in selecting and constructing

what they read

• Often no guide to the order in which a text should be read – the reader

can take many pathways

• An almost infinite number of texts available

• The extent of a text is abstract and unknown – the reader cannot see the

whole text

• The reader has more responsibility, in evaluating the text

• Traditional filters, like publishers and booksellers, are absent

‣ The reader has to ask, “Is this text useful for me” “Do I trust this

text”
