The art of distant reading: Gabriel Egan

This is an interesting reflection on the changes in teaching English Literacy studies. He raises the problems of teaching the evaluation of texts in the digital age. Gabriel identifies challenges to teaching and learning by suggesting the use of digital analysis will enable students to gather a depth of data on texts that would have previously impossible to achieve. This would be especially so using numerical applications.  Thus he identifies that new questions need to evolve from the use of these technologies which will inevitably enable learning to be student led activities.
