Below are the links for your next reading assignment. It will be due Sept 4 (Wed) but the following reading will be due Sept 8 (Sun) so we can get onto a regular schedule. We will discuss this in class but you are welcome to get a head start if you wish. I’ll post the 3rd reading soon as well.
Please visit Bernajean Porter’s website and read the information about the uses of technology and review her learning spectrum. Be sure to follow the links for literacy, adaptive and transforming uses for more detailed information. These terms and concepts are central to the class. For your reflections (added as a comment to this post) share some of your school experiences with technology and discuss which of the categories (literacy, adaptive, transforming) it might fit and what you got out of the experience. Which type of technology use seems best to you and why?
