ASCD SmartBrief Special Report: Literacy 2.0

August 7, 2009 at 10:33 am Leave a comment

In this ever-changing world, educators must not only utilize technology to engage students but also to help students understand the capabilities — and possible abuses — of the media they are increasingly using in their everyday lives.

It is no longer enough for students to walk away from schools knowing basic academic skills. They must be prepared for a future that increasingly relies on new technology

This two-part ASCD SmartBrief Special Report, ‘Literacy 2.0,’ looks at the best ways to do that. Part I of this special report examines what it means to be literate in the digital age. How do teachers incorporate such tools as social networking in lessons? And how do schools attempt to bridge the digital divide for students?

Part II of this special report reviews teaching methods that aim to bring technology into the classroom and provide students with the skills they need for the digital age.


If you don’t receive ASCD SmartBrief on a daily basis and find the report on Literacy 2.0 useful, you may want to sign up for the timely e-newsletter. ASCD SmartBrief delivers the stories making news in your profession directly to your inbox — for FREE.
