[TechKnowledgy 2015-16] 50 Ways to Create Accessible Literacy Experiences with Everyday Technologies
(Recorded Webinar from 2/25/2016 presentation by Judith Schoonover & Sally Norton-Darr)
Developing multi-modal materials to introduce or extend literacy experiences sets the stage for literacy success. Alternative ways to organize, display and arrange, interact and respond to information produce greater understanding of concepts. Musician Paul Simon proposed a 50 way relationship exit strategy. In this webinar, we propose a 50 way literacy ACCESS strategy. Scaffolds created or displayed with “everyday technologies” such as mobile technology, commonly used software, web-based tools, and classroom manipulatives provide a multitude of creative opportunities in which learners can thrive.
