Constructing Critical Literacy Practices through Technology Tools and Inquiry
Myers, Jamie; Beach, Richard
Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), v4 n3 p257-268 2004
This article describes how students have made use of technology tools in several critical literacy activities that help to achieve the paramount goals of language and literacy education to enable students to develop critical consciousness and community agency through literacy. The technologies helped students define intertextual connections, pose questions about the basis for meaning, integrate multiple voices and perspectives, and adopt a collaborative inquiry stance. The technology tools include software programs for video editing, hyperlinked knowledge bases, and asynchronous virtual communication. Examples of technology projects are embedded as links in this article.
