孙宝琦, 吴福焕：难行万里路 可读万卷书
Friday, 20 November 2020
A recent study examined 2,131 P4-P5 students’ changes in their bilingual reading enjoyment, reading amount, and access to reading resources in print and digital formats during the Home-Based Learning (HBL). Results showed that reading was a more preferred leisure activity during HBL, though students read more in English as compared to Mother Tongue. Students who enjoyed reading before HBL, enjoyed reading more and had read more books during HBL, suggesting the importance of nurturing reading enjoyment during school days in promoting and sustaining good reading habits during prolonged time spent at home. Devices were underutilised for reading purposes during HBL, which implies having access to devices may not naturally lead to more reading digitally.
