This session will focus on high-quality, technology-based literacy activities for students in upper elementary through high school classrooms. Content for the session will include: how the nature of literacy is changing as a result of recent and rapid technological advances; a discussion of the unique strategy and skill demands being placed on students when they are involved in a variety of technology-based literacy activities and suggestions for changing the literacy curriculum to accommodate these new technology-driven literacy demands. During the session, examples of technology-based literacy activities will be shared and participants will have the opportunity to discuss how the NETS for students are being addressed in each strategy. In addition, time will be allotted to explore how the NETS for teachers are addressed as teachers plan for and implement these activities with students.
