  • 1. New Literacies for Early Elementary: Web 2.0 Tools to Support Literacy Jeremy Brueck The University of Akron jbrueck@uakron.edu
  • 2. Today we will… • Take a closer look at reading and writing in the digital age • Examine the implications of the read/write web • Talk about how to use Web 2.0 to cultivate socially constructed thinking and learning in your students
  • 3. Challenges of 21st Century Teaching •‘Information Age’ technologies have made available copious amounts of information to anyone, anywhere, at anytime. •Strict age/grade level approaches to education are being questioned as the appropriate way to prepare students for the coming decades.
  • 4. Classroom Teaching Environments • Education continues to mirror the industrial age ‘assembly line’ approach. • We’re trying to produce the most product (to standards) in the shortest time with the fewest defects. • Our instruction typically occurs in a room with teacher and students ‘same place - same time.’ • Content (learning experience) is usually organized by topics and taught in time slots specified for that topic.
  • 5. Looking at literacy New Literacies Traditional Literacies – Web logs (blogs) – Paper – video editors – Pencil – World Wide Web browsers – Web & HTML editors – Book – e-mail – Text messaging – Instant Messaging – spreadsheets – presentation software – bulletin boards – avatars – virtual worlds
  • 6. What are New Literacies? • Using information and communication technologies to: – identify important questions – locate information – critically evaluate the usefulness of that information – synthesize information to answer those questions – communicate the answers to others
  • 7. Why integrate New Literacies? • Young people will continue to socially engage in a variety of new literacies. • Educators need to make school literacy more engaging for students and more meaningful to their present and future lives in a digital world. • Educators MUST understand the shifts in practices and pedagogy that have taken place and consider how these shifts should inform our teaching of reading and writing.
