  “Today’s teenagers are better described as “screenagers,” a term popularized by Dan Bloom to describe the act of reading on screen. They’re woken up by an alarm on a cellphone and they check the latest gossip on the same device, often before they get out of bed. They go to school or work in a vehicle that features screen-based information or an entertainment system, and they spend most of their day interacting with one kind of screen or another. In the evening they interact with their friends via screens and may finally sit down to relax with the internet.”

The students of today are growing up in a world where screens are an integral part of their daily lives. They have extensive exposure to digital technology and information media from a young age, shaping their interactions, behaviors, and communication patterns.
 
The advancement of technology and the widespread use of digital devices have transformed how students access and interact with information. As a result, it has become increasingly essential for educators to have a deeper understanding of digital reading literacy. This knowledge equips educators to effectively teach, guide, and inspire students in their journey as critical readers in the digital age.
