READ 6605 - Adolescent Learners and the Digital Literacy Environment


(3 sem. cr.) Just as adolescents must adapt to ever-changing digital literacy environments, so, too, must their teachers. In this course, education professionals explore digital tools and texts to support literacy teaching and learning in a digital environment. Through inquiry and research online, education professionals analyze digital environments, evaluate the role of information literacy, and design appropriate and engaging instructional activities using digital and other texts for learning. Course discussions focus on current trends and issues that inform literacy and learning today including attention to visual and social media, and technology as a mediating influence between and within cultures, families, and communities.
