As an educator, you undoubtedly know that reading ability plays an important role in a student's academic success. But how do you entice and motivate reluctant readers to read actively and independently? Join Dr. Rob Furman as he delivers a fresh approach to integrating modern technology and reading. He will present technological resources that can easily be introduced into the 21st century classroom; from websites, to video conferencing, to apps, in order to bring a refreshing approach to reading. Dr. Rob discusses applications for each, bringing to light ways educators and schools can use these resources in an appropriate, budget-friendly manner to see a shift in active reading among their students.

I really liked that he stressed that adults need to read for pleasure in the sight of their children.
How are children going to love to read if they don't see that adults love to read silently and aloud! Show them by doing it yourself! And during DEAR time, adults need to be reading for pleasure too, not working at their desk or doing other things. Make it a priority!

This was great! I loved the info presented. Lots of great take-aways. Thank you!
Great ideas! Thank you.
Just 20 minutes a day reading could impact a student for a lifetime. What will get them excited and motivated to read? Let them choose and eventually they will expand their genres. We need to be book advertisers. Great idea!
