Define the stages which the reader follows
when reading e-resources, one of several
factors which can provide signification
understanding to the actual reading
behaviour and cognitive process of reading.
Two different samples of students who study
in Libya primary school age from 9 to 12 was
selected to investigate how students use and
interact with both print and digital school –
books; Identify the e-reading process; outline
the aims of using internet and technology and
Define what students like and dislike in both
versions. Furthermore, students found using
e-textbook more difficult than paper book.
The results showed there is a significant
difference in reading process between read
paper books and electronic books. In addition,
there are two reading strategies used to read
school book in both versions [electronic &
paper]; (1) view the text than answer the
questions. Or (2) view the questions than
search for correct answer.
