Best Practices in Literacy Education with Technology
Rachel Small, Teacher Librarian, Pine Glen Elem, Burlington Public Schools
Level: Intermediate
Grades: All
In this session participants will fuse best practice literacy instruction with technology to steer students to fall irrevocably in love with reading, writing, and deep thinking. To disarm any fear of technology, participants will learn about innovative and adaptive learning techniques to help students develop effective communication and collaboration skills. A repertoire of connected tools will be shown as well as connected learning activities (e.g. the Global Read Aloud, Dot Day, QuadBlogging, and Mystery Skype) to deepen student engagement with reading and writing.
