On Thursday 25th January at 6pm SLIP Ireland will be hosting a live Twitter chat inspired by an article in Liber Quarterly: The e-Reader — an Educational or an Entertainment Tool? e-Readers in an Academic Setting by Peter Ahlroos and Jonna Hahto1.
To take part in the Twitter chat all you need to do is read the article, which is open access and available here, and think about the points raised in the article – then share your feedback using #SLIPIreland! For some guiding questions on reflecting on the article see below. @SLIPIreland will be moderating the chat and asking some questions raised by the article and the topic of e-readers in general and how the landscape has shifted in the years since the article was written.
- What is the focus of the article/chapter?
- What kinds of contributions do the readings make (theoretical, framework, insights, practical, etc.) to understanding your chosen topic?
- Is the evidence the author presents convincing to you? Why/why not?
- What is strong/weak about the article?
- What do you agree/disagree with?
- How would you change the research or what else do you wish the authors had considered?
- What connections can you make between these articles and others?
- Does it support, challenge, extend, or contradict other readings you’ve done?
- What connections can you make between the reading and your own experiences in previous study or in the workplace?
- What can you “take away” from the readings?
- What questions or issues does the reading raise for you?
