  • The Big Ideas
    Changes in a global economy require fundamental changes in literacy education.
    The Internet is this generation’s defining technology for reading and writing.
    Research: The Internet requires new literacies -- additional online reading comprehension skills.
    Changing Classroom Instruction: The Challenge
  • I. The World Is Flat: Changes In A Global Economy Require Changes In Education
    The “General Motors” Model of Economic Management
    Command and control
    Lower levels of education required.
    Wasted intellectual capital
    Highly inefficient
    Lower productivity
    Little innovation
    Little need for higher level and creative thinking.
    Wasted intellectual capital
  • In a Flattened World: Opportunities Expand butCompetition Increases
    How do economic units increase productivity?
    Flatten The Organization into Problem Solving Teams
    Greater Intellectual Capital Use = Greater Productivity
    Define problems
    Locate information
    Critically evaluate information
    Synthesize and solve problems
    Communicate solutions
    These teams take full advantage of their intellectual capital to the extent their education system has prepared them for this.
  • Which tool has been used by economic units to increase productivity and compete?
    The Internet
    Recent productivity gains are due to using the Internet to share information, communicate, and solve problems (van Ark, Inklaar, & McGuckin, 2003; Friedman, 2005; Matteucci, O’Mahony, Robinson, & Zwick, 2005).
    Define problems
    Locate information
    Critically evaluate information
    Synthesize and solve problems
    Communicate solutions
  • II. The Internet Is This Generation’s Defining Technology For Reading and Learning

  • The Workplace Has Changed
    Recent productivity gains are due to using the Internet to share information, communicate, and solve problems (van Ark, Inklaar, & McGuckin, 2003; Friedman, 2005; Matteucci, O’Mahony, Robinson, & Zwick, 2005).
    This generation’s defining technology for reading.
  • International Assessment Initiatives from OECD
    2009 PISAInternational Assessment of Reading – Digital Literacies
    Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC) – Problem Solving in Technologically Rich Evironments
    This generation’s defining technology for reading.
  • III. Research: The Internet Requires Additional Online Reading Comprehension and Learning Skills
  • Where We Started Our Work
    “… the Internet…requires readers to have novel literacy skills, and little is known about how to analyze or teach those skills.” (RAND Reading Research Study Group, 2002. p. 4).
    The new literacies of online reading comprehension
  • Online and Offline Reading Comprehension May Not Be Isomorphic

    Leu, D. Castek, J., Hartman, D., Coiro, J.,
    Henry, L., Kulikowich, J., Lyver, S. (2005).
  • The New Literacies Of Online Reading Comprehension: Problem based reading and learning
    Read to identify important questions;
    Read to locate information;
    Read to critically evaluate the usefulness of that information;
    Read to synthesize information to answer those questions; and
    Read to communicate the answers to others.
    (Leu, Kinzer, Coiro, & Cammack, 2004, p. 1570)
    The new literacies of online reading comprehension
