Leveraging Digital Learning Tools to Foster Authentic, Lifelong Readers

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Our students were consistently earning an A+ in “fake reading”--until we realized that we were part of the problem.

In our high school BYOD classes, we’ve coupled real-world tasks with the use of purposeful, digital learning strategies, and the results truly reflect what we think 21st Century Learning should look like.  Come join the conversation!
