The Effects of Electronic Books Designed for Children in Education

Michelle Chau

Abstract


Electronic books are quickly becoming more prominent in the field of education because of their advantages over traditional printed textbooks. As more electronic textbooks are being produced and utilized in classrooms, we must investigate just how useful and effective they are in teaching young children the important skills they need for higher learning. This paper reviews some of the current views on the topic for teaching and learning and discusses how electronic books can be integrated into the classroom learning environment. Research has shown that when used as a teaching supplement, electronic books have a positive impact on learning. They can be valuable in helping children with their early literacy development, reading comprehension, and language development.
