Presentation Title: Keeping Literacy in 21st Century Literacy

Presentation Description: In this session I outline the movement towards multiple literacies and 21st century literacies.  Within this framework I present concrete strategies and methods for pursing the traditional notion of literacy – reading and writing fluency – in an online context.   In particular I hope to show how “think alouds”¯ and other literacy modeling strategies can be enhanced by Web 2.0 technologies like Diigo for social bookmarking and Screentoaster for easy screen capture and content delivery. Part of this enhancement comes from the ability to customize instruction to individual student needs and interests.  This presentation is a relatively equal mix of teaching theory, literacy pedagogy, and technology integration.

    Loved playing around with Screentoaster during your presentation. My recording developed a lag in the audio. Have you experienced that yourself?
