ABSTRACT

In the era of digital transformation, the medium of reading is expanding and accordingly, the meaning of reading is changing. In the utopia of reading, where we can find anything at any time, there are friendly helpers to help us read. Knowledge content that reconstructs information and delivers it easily in a shortened form emerges as a substitute for classic reading. Especially, AI ChatGPT replaces reading, thinking, and judging, and outsourcing of reading prevails. Outsourcing of reading is a new aspect of communication according to media changes. Therefore, it is necessary to accurately diagnose it and use its characteristics to adjust or expand the category of reading. Knowledge content can be used as an aid to stimulate interest and help basic reading comprehension and understanding, and can be used as a medium or supplement rather than a substitute for reading. A plan to use ChatGPT as a new conversationalist that can activate the entire process of reading that connects understanding, analysis, and expansion must also be devised in detail. Digital technology has brought lonely reading in the closet to the active world, and classics are delivered more easily and more fun through various media. However, apart from embracing change and acknowledging its usefulness, it should also be considered that the improvement of technology diminishes the ability to create emotions, attitudes, and values inherited from reading classics. Reading the classics was a three-dimensional process for humans to understand themselves and the world. Based on this, a new reading process in which humans and technology collaborate should be constructed.
