Literacy in Action: Create To Learn

by Apple Distinguished Educators

This course material is only available in the iTunes U app on iPhone or iPad.

Course Description

Today’s literacy classroom builds upon a strong foundation of pedagogy while leveraging new tools and resources to amplify student thinking.  As new technologies enter our learning environment, we design and facilitate instructional sequences that invite students to construct knowledge, collaborate with peers and communicate understanding in a variety of formats.  We craft opportunities for students to interact and respond to text, images and media, and reimagine what it means to communicate in the 21st century classroom.  This course highlights exemplary practices across the K-12 instructional setting that can be differentiated for students of all ages.  See how learners communicate understanding, build comprehension, employ speaking and listening skills, demonstrate independence and meet the standards along the way as they engage in innovative practices for real-world audiences.
