Transitioning a University Extensive Reading Program from Print to Digital Books: M-Reader to Xreading

Fri, Aug 13, 12:55-13:15 Asia/Tokyo Day 2

This paper reports on the transition from physical to digital books in a university-wide extensive reading program in Japan. Not only will students’ learning outcomes and responses to their online reading experiences be shared, but comparisons of the two learning environments will also be offered: paper-based reading and screen-based reading.

  • Jodie CAMPBELL

    Hello. My name is Jodie Campbell. I'm from Toronto, Canada, but I live in Kyoto,Japan. I've been teaching ESL/EFL for about 21 years (1 year in Seoul, South Korea, & 20 years in Japan). I'm currently an EFL lecturer at Kyoto University of Foreign Studies in Kyoto, Japan. My areas of interest in ESL/EFL are: Extensive Reading (ER), Computer-Assisted Language Learning (CALL), Vocabulary Acquisition, Motivational Strategies in the Second Language (L2) Classroom, and most recently, Gamification in the L2 Language Classroom, mainly via Kahoot. In my free time, I like to watch hockey, play golf, and play the drums. Thank you. Jodie Campbell
