Project

Literacy and Technology Integration in the Classroom

The purpose of this project was to create teacher planning materials and resources to teach foundational literacy skills through both direct teacher instruction and personalized technology for students in kindergarten thru third grade. The project addresses the problem of there not being easy and adaptable teacher planning materials that allow for direct teacher driven instruction and the online learning programs available to cohesively work together. The resources developed through this project provides teachers with planning and assessment tools to help track student progressions through the lesson alignment in both whole group and small group settings. Planning tools, such as teacher editions and scope and sequences, will assist in the creation of the lesson alignment and student-learning pathways. The resources take into account student’s needs, strengths, weaknesses, and language proficiency. The planning tools developed through this project includes a component that can be sent home to families for them to see what their student is working on even if they do not have access to seeing their students’ progress online. A website has been created for teachers to access documents with information, readings, ideas, reproducible as well as a space to collaborate and share ideas. These tools are easily accessible and usable with any set of programs that a teacher has access to in their classroom. This project is significant, as it will provide teachers with planning tools for direct literacy instruction and technology concurrently to increase student mastery of foundational reading skills.
