    Thanks for the link to Dr. Coiro's webpage at URI. I'm interested in her studies with technology and upper elementary and middle school students and appreciate the listing of her articles.

    Excellent podcast! With all of the work and reading I have done in the field of online literacy, I have to admit that I have not given much thought to what might be helpful for parents. Thanks for stretching my thinking!

    This podcast was terrific--very thought-provoking. I work mostly with high school students, and I see over-confidence in the validity of the information as a real barrier. As Julie noted, they accept info at face value. I find that we're doing lots more peer response with their writing. Students researching the same topic begin noticing that they're finding very different information, especially when it comes to controversial topics.

    Interesting interview. It ties in what is currently known in the field with the practicality of daily interaction with children and their literacy issues.

    Thank you for sharing this wonderful podcast. I learned some great strategies that I can use as a parent, educator, and reader. "Stop and think" works for all ages! :) Thanks for sharing.

    I am lucky enough to know Dr. Coiro personally. She was one of my instructors in the University of RI's Reading Program. Dr. Coiro has a wonderful way of providing New Literacy information to those of us who thought New Literacies meant new software. My eyes have been opened to online comprehension and how important it is and will be to educators of all levels and content areas. This new way of looking at comprehension is an area that I'm looking forward to learning about and using with my students. Thank you Julie!

    Thank you Dr. Coiro for helping me to understand that "New Literacies" does not mean new software programs. I am excited to learn more about your work and learn how to teach and use online comprehension with the students I work with.

    Thank you Dr. Coiro for steering the importance of "Stop and ThinK". As educators and parents, we need to encourage students to take responsibility for their learning.

    Thank you for sharing your research and observations. Much of your insight will help us consider parent workshops to impact our student learning.

    I think that's a good point about how students need to stop and think during online reading and how students really are making their own books while online reading depending on what links they choose.

    I appreciate and respect the fact that Dr. Coiro is a parent herself, and is able to look at comprehension as an educator, as well as a caring parent.

    Glad to know that critical thinking and comprehension is not just a problem at our school...I agree that they need to "Stop and Think".

    Excellent podcast. Great information I can use with students.

    I found Dr. Coiro's research and insight into reading comprehension on the internet to be very informative and helpful. It is important for students to monitor their reading and to "Stop and Think" if what they are reading makes sense or needs further clarification. I also believe modeling how to effectively read on the internet is important too.
