Integrating Technology into the ELA Classroom: Tools to Support Reading and Writing

September 16, 2016

Whether you have a 1:1 classroom or can only get your hands on a few devices, you should be utilizing technology to leverage learning in your classroom. Technology can be used to meet individual students' needs or to foster collaboration between students. Middle school and high school English Language Arts teachers discussed tools for reading actively online, language development, and focusing on the writing process rather than the product. Teachers also shared the challenges of using technology and experiences with blended learning. Read through the chat for ideas to implement in your own classroom.
This #2ndaryELA Twitter chat was all about integrating technology into the ELA classroom. Middle school and high school English Language Arts teachers discussed tools for reading actively online, language development, and focusing on the writing process rather than the product. Teachers also shared the challenges of using technology and experiences with blended learning.

Read through the chat below for tools for online annotation, reinforcing vocabulary, and practicing grammar. You'll find ways to brainstorm creatively and encourage revision. You'll also get ideas about what to do with limited technology.

Hope you'll join us next Tuesday September 20th at 8pm EST to talk about grading policies and managing the marking load. We'd also love for you to join our 2ndaryELA Facebook group (even if you aren't on Twitter). 2ndaryELA is a group of middle and high school English Language Arts teachers looking to share ideas and best practices. This group is an extension of our Twitter chat and a place for collaboration, questions, and encouragement. Feel free to post teaching ideas, success stories, resource links, photos, etc. that will enhance our instruction.
