Feedback form is now closed.
It is important to incorporate technology in literacy instruction (Leu, Kinzer, Coiro, & Cammack, 2004), yet planning for how to integrate it can be overwhelming for classroom teachers (Thoma, Hutchison, Johnson, Johnson, & Stromer, 2017). The purpose of this interactive session is to showcase ways to incorporate a variety of technology tools in literacy instruction that educators can take back to their classrooms and use immediately. Session leaders will introduce and model specific websites and apps, and describe ways to incorporate it in classroom literacy instruction. As a BYOD (bring your own device) session, participants will have hands-on experiences with the featured technology tools. Participants will rotate through engagement, teacher toolbox, and assessment stations led by teacher candidates who have used the resources as both students and teachers. Time will be allotted at the end of the session for participant questions, and session leaders will make connections to 21st Century skills and the Indiana Department of Education computer science standards.
