To provide better insight into the reading process, two researchers created a computer model that learns to read just like children. Mark Seidenberg, PhD., and Michael Harm, PhD. showed that phonics gives early learners an edge, especially as emergent readers.
Initially, Seidenberg and Harm mimicked how toddlers acquire language by exposing the computer model to sounds until . . . → Read More: Phonics leads to faster, better reading for young learners
