CSL 600 - Technological Literacy in the Classroom


This course explores the educational use of technology in literacy teaching and learning. Constructivist principles will be applied to discovery learning as a means to foster literacy, as well as a tool for research and presentation. Technological literacy with a focus on developing teaching strategies and learning experiences to facilitate literacy learning in a multimedia context across the curriculum is a goal of this course. Emphasis is on the use and development of computer programs to help students develop vocabulary, listening and speaking abilities, visual literacy, writing and reading skills. The application of word processing to help students improve their writing skills, and analysis and evaluation of selected software designed for teaching Language Arts will also be included. Connections to oral language, reading, writing, and children’s literature will be developed in a literacy framework that focuses on the use of technology for all students including at-risk learners, English language learners and students with special needs.
