Will Students Remember How to Read Books?

Ariel Sacks ponders the connection between memory and reading comprehension, and wonders how our increasing reliance on digital technology will affect it:

There are so many things I don't have to remember, because they're readily available on the internet, through my phone or computer, that I wonder how it's affecting my memory use in general... and what about my students' memory use?
How do the changes in the way we are using memory affect the new generation with their reading process? If we can identify these changes, how can we address these shifting needs in our teaching?
