Fight the Dragons: Using Online Discussion to Promote Critical Literacy in Teacher Education
Woodcock, Christine
Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), v9 n2 p95-116 2009
Today's children are bombarded by a range of media, and it is the responsibility of teachers to equip students to engage critically. Just as teachers are responsible to teach critical literacy, teacher educators must help empower teachers to become more critically literate. This paper explores the role of online discussion in the ways it fosters critical literacy by analyzing the online discourse of the teachers in an online literature course. Implications relating to both the online nature of teaching and the various strategies to foster critical literacy in everyday classrooms are described.
