Beyond the Book: Using Web 2.0 Tools to Develop 21st Century Literacies
Smith, Judith J.; Dobson, Ellen
Computers in the Schools, v28 n4 p316-327 2011
New information and communications technologies (ICT) are redefining teacher education. A university faculty member and an instructional technology consultant incorporated information and communications technologies within a graduate university methods course. The following research questions explored student perceptions of using Web 2.0 tools as a language arts teaching tool: (a) Do pre-service teachers feel adequately prepared to implement 21st century skills using Web 2.0 tools? and (b) What are the barriers that exist for teachers in using Web 2.0 tools in promoting literacy? Findings suggest educators must continue research of Web 2.0 tools to design new learning opportunities for the future. (Contains 2 figures and 4 tables.)
