Young people and literacy have changed their relationship status to ‘it’s complicated’ by Cliff Manning

Your Monster Read

  • When I see reports that young people are reading less than ever, I must admit I get confused. On Makewaves, the safe social learning platform I help oversee, students regularly write over 2,000 blog posts and 30,000 comments a month. There are 55,000,000 Facebook status updates plus a further 50,000,000 tweets written every day. Now add in all the text messages, chats, blogs, websites and games read and written each day and the world seems more full of text than ever. Young people may not be reading as many print books or magazines but they must be reading something.
