Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In the Digital Age, the dominance of conventional, linear text of the last few centuries is eroding and giving way to multimodal communication, with its screen-based, non-linear, participatory and visual emphasis. This presentation highlights innovative educational uses of the Read-Write Web that effectively incorporate both conventional prose and multimedia communication. Join in reviewing alternative K-12 activities and projects with interactive technologies and see how online social media is empowering student-centered leaning. Designed for curriculum specialists, classroom teachers, and educational technology specialists, this session features projects from social studies, language arts, world languages and math/science classrooms.
