The purpose of this blog is to follow the literacy and technology pilot. Here we will follow the progress of the pilot as we explore resources, try them out in our classrooms, and share our reflections, successes, and questions.
We invite others in the community to share their thoughts and experiences with us as we craft recommendations to improve our students' use of technology to enhance literacy.
