London: Increased usage of computers is badly affecting children`s reading habits, a new study has claimed.
The researchers found that boys` ability had decreased slightly more than girls, possibly because they tended to spend more time on video games.Professor Monica Rosen, who led the research, said: "Reading ability falls as leisure use of computers increases."It is important that we do not jump to the conclusion that the complete explanation for poorer reading is deficiencies in education."On the contrary, the way in which computers undermine reading shows very clearly that leisure time is at least as important when it comes to developing high-quality reading skills."
