Web 2.0 Reflective Inquiry: A Transformative Literacy Teacher Education Tool
Stevens, Elizabeth Years
Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, v56 n5 p368 Feb 2013
The author describes a graduate class she teaches called Perspectives on Literacy and Technology, whose first goal is to provide a space for teachers enrolled in a literacy education MS program to reflect on current theory and research related to digital technologies and literacy. A secondary goal is to foster their use of "cutting-edge" technology tools for literacy instruction. She invites students to reflect on connections between theories about multimodal literacies and their day-to-day instructional practice. They must also develop facility with current Web 2.0 tools, such as such as blogs, wikis, podcasts, digital stories, classroom websites, and social bookmarks and networks, so that the use of such tools can be infused into their K-12 classrooms to transform literacy instruction.
