Literacy and Technology
“Proficiency in the new literacies of the Internet will become essential to our students literary future” (International Reading Association, 2001).
Parental controls need to be put in place on computers in the school for the safety of the children.
“Today, the definition of literacy has expanded from traditional notions of reading and writing to include the ability to learn, comprehend and interact with technology in a meaningful way.” (Pianfetti 2001, pg. 256)
New Literacies is the new way to communicate with and understand our students. Our world is quickly filling up with technology, and if we don’t address the proper issues that using this technology has, teachers and students will never be able to benefit from it. Using technology in the classroom, whether it be blogs, the Internet or whatever else, students and teachers can value from it now, and will always be able to benefit from the use of it in the future.
