Reaching Reluctant Readers and Writers through Technology – Part 1

This conversation/workshop will focus on using a variety of web 2.0 tools to engage reluctant learners and build confidence in their abilities. Using experiences from her grade 9 and 10 applied level English classes, the facilitator shares sample work and feedback from students to demonstrate how technology can be a vehicle to reach those who often get left behind and/or do not find a voice in their classes. This discussion covers material on reluctant speakers, writers and readers of both genders.

Audience: All levels
