Learn how to use technology to engage young students as they learn the skills required to be successful readers. Sarah Rich showed to help your students master the foundational skills needed to prepare them for reading.
Sarah, a teacher and a trained blended learning expert, shared:
- What blended learning is and how it is transforming the elementary classroom – specifically for students learning how to read
- What the SAMR model for technology integration is
- Five activities you can try in your classroom this fall to improve reading engagement and results
- A walkthrough of the free Eyeread app for teaching students the skills required for reading
The session featured many examples and valuable resources you can use no matter what technology constraints exist in your classroom. You will come away feeling inspired and informed to jump back into the classroom this Fall! This webinar will benefit PreK-2 teachers, librarians and administrators as well as reading coaches, literacy specialists, curriculum directors, and technology directors.
