Integrating Computer Technology into a Balanced Literacy Approach: Beyond Interactive Books and Word Processors.
Lund, David; Angell, Verlinda Thompson; Atwood, Karen
Until recently, computer technology has been used as a glorified worksheet, word processor, and CD-ROM interactive reader. Now, technology can move well beyond these basic functions into improving literacy skills and strategies, problem solving, and communication. This paper addresses methods in which a balanced literacy program, wherein the richness of whole language is combined with the structure of traditional approaches, can be augmented using technologies in new and exciting ways. The paper also considers some of the problems and difficulties teachers encounter in trying to advance the use of computer technology in the classroom. Contains 21 references. (NKA)
