From the Paper:"In the past, students were not so bombarded with technology and when they wished to be entertained, it was either television, radio, the cinema, records and of course reading, but with the advent of technology, beginning sometime in the mid 1980's, today's students do not see any point to reading, for they see it as redundant, unnecessary and at times boring, due in part to the wide access to the Internet, I-phones, texting, and most certainly entertainment provided by the mass media which predominantly utilizes images instead of words to convey ideas and concepts. Thus, as any professional teacher in today's modern world knows so well, this situation demands improvement, especially related to getting students (and young adults) to read (i.e., books) instead of spending their free time (and most of their school time) in front of a computer, a television or some other technology-based instrument or product, thus increasing their appreciation for the written word."
