Literacy A New Way

I have been working on a website dedicated to literacy and technology, Literacy A New Way. It is in the beginning stages and I have been adding to it as I get ideas on how technology can enhance student literacy. Please check it out and I would love some feedback or ideas covering what could be added to the site. Leave a comment on this blog or contact me at ngleason@bonnyeagle.org

Literacy is slightly changing with technology and, as educators, we need to keep up with the younger generation. Texting is its own language. What will literacy look like in the future? We may be holding on to the past. The future is fast approaching and bringing us new languages. Ways to communicate may not always be what it is has been. In the meantime we (educators) must stay current, be flexible, and continue to help students become fluent in and knowledgable of our traditional language.
