The New Literacies Research Lab at the University of Connecticut is the most widely recognized center in the world for conducting research on the new reading comprehension and learning skills required by the Internet and other emerging information and communication technologies. Our work develops research-based evidence to prepare students for their literacy and learning future.

Through our research, we provide answers to two central questions:

1. What are the new skills, strategies, and dispositions required for successful reading comprehension and learning on the Internet?

2. How can we most effectively prepare our youth for these new literacies?
