Pew Study: Technology Aids Students’ Writing Skills Though Challenges Remain | ELAR Resources | Scoop.it

"Digital technologies are impacting American middle and high school students’ writing in many ways, both good and bad, a new national report from the Pew Research Center shows. According to the survey of teachers who instruct American middle and high school students, tech tools provide significant advantages to learning—although students are still having trouble with informal grammar and navigating the issues of plagiarism, citation, and fair use."

5 Tools for Reading Digital Text

5 Tools for Reading Digital Text | ELAR Resources | Scoop.it

"With text no longer relegated exclusively to the pages between the cover of a book or a magazine, the shift from paper to digital texts has brought on a whole new form of literacy. This upheaval in how we read brings with it new opportunities for learning as well as new challenges.

Experts refer to this phenomenon as transliteracy. In a study published in the peer-reviewed journal First Monday, Dr. Sue Thomas and colleagues defined transliteracy as 'the ability to read, write and interact across a range of platforms, tools and media from signing and orality through handwriting, print, TV, radio and film, to digital social networks'."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 26, 2013 10:03 PM

When we think about reading today and the diverse platforms for reading we should be thinking of transliteracy. As schools gear up for Common Core assessments we need to be more aware of the fact that our students are reading (and writing) across many platform. There is also the knowledge that when reading online students may be clicking on hyperlinks that lead to other resources and begin to get lost.

Learn about some great tools that may be used to help students stay more focused and organized. This post lists five tools, providing explanations for each of them. The tools discussed are:

* Instapaper

* GoodReader

* Skitch

* Diigo

* Readablity
