Technologies for Literacy: Using Technologies in a Problem Solving Environment
Lee, Chwee Beng
Australian Educational Computing, v29 n2 2014
As technologies have become an integral part of our lives, the way we read and understand text has changed drastically. In this paper, we discuss how various technologies support learners' reading and writing skills within the context of meaningful learning. Next, using elaborated cases, we argue that situating learners in problem solving environments and engaging them in authentic tasks has far-reaching benefits for learning as technologies play the role of cognitive tools in such environments.
