Abstract

Reading is very important for students' learning in every subject and their daily lives. However, the reading level of some elementary schools is below their grade level, and the computer/Internet usage among students is high. There are many research studies that suggest interactive multimedia computer software to help reading instruction; teachers should take advantages of computer technology. Reading to children is suggested to have a positive effect on children's literacy outcomes. The Interactive multimedia computer technology makes it possible for children to listen and interact to the story. This paper examines studies about effects of computer applications in reading instruction, provides teachers ways of implementing computer technology into their reading instruction, summarizes some directions for future research, also lists some reading and literacy sites that serve as resources for teachers.
