Using Digital Tools to Promote Reading and Story Reflection in Grade 6 Boys

  • Boys and Stories (2018-19)

The purpose of this study was to encourage boys to read stories and have them create story reflections through digital games and electronic journals. Twenty-eight boys were involved in a six-week reading programme, which demanded commitment, determination, collaborative work, and creative thinking. In order to make the process entertaining and more accessible for today’s students, there was also a huge fun aspect to the project.
