Infusing Technology Into Elementary Literacy Curriculum: Attendees will participate in a general session (show, share, demo, and discussion) on technology tools that integrate into elementary literacy instruction. Discussion will center around past, current, and future technologies teachers have access to. Some topics and tools include: document cameras, interactive white boards, hand held devices (iPods/iPads), websites, laptops, etc. Discussion will speak specifically to elementary school literacy instruction and use the Balanced Literacy Frameworks as a guide (whole group instruction, small group instruction, literacy stations, shared reading, guided reading, writer’s workshop, etc.) . You need not be an expert to attend this session. This is a general overview and will show many tools you may not have even thought to use. There will be follow-up sessions that go deeper into a specific tools/topics.
