We read differently on the Internet. We read in conversation loops as we move down a page and not linear like we do on paper. We are seeing reading stratagies change because reading is changing do to the connectedness of text. Let’s practice one new way of reading called SSR or Silent Social Reading where we read together while engaged in a social dialog.
