Abstract

In alignment with contemporary theoretical models of reading on screen, this review suggests avenues for future multi-method research by drawing on psychological as well as socio-cultural aspects of reading. Experimental and meta-analytical studies can help develop a more refined understanding of the added value of specific new features in digital books. The key contribution of qualitative studies is the theoretical extension they provide to cognitive models of reading, including the focus on socio-emotional outcomes and corporal responses to texts. Interdisciplinary approaches can provide complementary perspectives and convergent recommendations issued to children’s publishing industry and adults mediating their use.
