The goal of the wiki is to explore, share, and learn about ways to integrate technology into literacy education. We are looking for effective ways to integrate technology into the classroom, and are always searching for ways to improve our practice as teachers. We like to beg, borrow, and steal ideas from the many talented educators at our schools, in our area, across the country, and around the world. This is a collaborative space to share some of the information, websites, research, and pedagogy that reaches the students of the 21st Century. Please feel free to join or start a discussion, post links, and share your ideas with educators who feel the same way.
