Supporting Literacy Development in Lower Elementary Classrooms (Spring 2010)
(Literacy in Lower Elem)


In this workshop, participants will explore how technologies can support emerging literacy development in kindergarten through second grade. Participants will investigate tools that can help build phonemic awareness and word recognition. Participants will also explore strategies for integrating reading and writing with meaningful project-based activities, and learn about software tools for publishing student work and creating class books. Participants will develop ideas for a technology-enhanced lesson plan, and collect a number of resources for immediate classroom use.
