Examine ways in which students can use the new literacies to share information with others. Four webtools (Audioboo, Knovio, Eyejot, and Popplet) are introduced for presenting information in clear and substantive ways. These webtools involve multimedia forms of communication that teachers and students will find engaging and adaptable for use across the curriculum. Through discussion, demonstration, and practice participants learn how to apply these technologies in their teaching.

The New York State Common Core Standards emphasize “close reading” of informational texts. In this webinar, we examine ways that the new literacies can be used for readers to closely examine textual information. It is widely known that understanding is improved when information is examined with a variety of lenses. We present ways information from “close reading” of texts can be examined by creating visual organizers, collaborative post-it boards, digital drawings and comics, and multimedia presentations through resources such as popplet, wallwisher, drawto, comiclife/makebeliefcomics, Animoto.

The Common Core Standards require students to strategically produce and publish writing with technology.

In particular we present teaching strategies for integrating conventional compositions with the digital literacies and through resources such as I-Search, FAQ papers, hyperlinked poetry, electronic posters.
