Presented by Jennifer Wall

This presentation will briefly highlight some of the current issues surrounding using technology and teaching for 21st century literacy in our current teaching climate, which emphasizes teacher accountability, standardization of curriculum, and preparation for standardized tests as measures of student and teacher success.  Emergent research from a qualitative study on high school English teachers’ use of New Literacies and Multiliteracies frameworks in the classroom will be presented to show how teachers are using technology to support the teaching of literacy in the context of the current teaching climate.
