A new study from Digital Parenting Russia and Tvidi.Ru, a substantial internet platform for children between 6 and 16 year of age, conducted a survey earlier this summer on the e-reading habits of Russian kids.
Related: Back to School in an E-reading World, the latest report from DBW and Play Collective, looks carefully at the e-reading habits of children aged 2-13, with a focus on educational ebooks and ebooks in the classroom.
The Russian study found that over 75% of students are using ebooks for their homework. And while one-third of the over 4,000 respondents indicated that they read on tablets and desktop computers, once students reached middle school they opted for e-readers instead.
Notably Russian children are reading on smartphones too. Younger children especially read digital books on a smartphone as frequently as they do on a computer screen or tablet device.
