In this episode I am joined by Matt East to talk all things ebooks, digital reading, student literacy skills, co-creation and just a little bit about AI (sorry)! Matt shares his collaborative research about Active Online Reading and how he sees this shaping the way in which we maximise the use of ebook material as well as how we support students to make the most of tools to support effective digital reading.
