PISA in Focus: Are boys and girls ready for the digital age?

The bottom line: Boys’ interest and abilities in digital reading could be exploited to start a “virtuous cycle” through which more frequent reading of digital texts would result in better digital reading proficiency, which, in turn, would lead to greater enjoyment of reading and better proficiency in print reading, as well. Parents, educators and policy makers should also take note of girls’ weaker skills in digital navigation. Without those skills, students will find it difficult to make their way in the digital age.
