                Adolescent reading in the digital age means that students are able to demonstrate reading skills (such as decoding, annotation, fluency, and vocabulary) through the use of technology and the respective skills associated with it. As the digital era...

                    Charlton, You raise many good points here. This stuck out for me: Technology has a place in the classroom to provide other mediums for written expression and building of knowledge. However, it should be supplemented with traditional...

                          Tammy, I enjoyed reading your response. This really stuck out to me: For some students in my classroom it’s all about having fun, and little to no learning takes place. It's a tough battle teaching students in a renewal school...

                                Dira, Thanks for your response. I was really intrigued by this: I can relate to this I enjoy technology but not having the prior knowledge sometimes makes the experience a bit stressful and I think students relate to literature the same...

                                Adolescent digital literacy is something that should be mandatory in our classrooms at this point.  We live in an age where most things are run by technology: people read the news on their phones, communicate with bosses or coworkers through...
