Technology transforms learning for all students but may have the greatest impact on developing readers and writers. This session will share strategies for leveraging digital tools with our youngest learners to capture student thinking, differentiate instruction and provide multimodal response options. From annotation with a drawing tool, to video feedback and collaboration on a learning management system, we’ll unpack student work samples and video lessons to find new instructional practices to empower students in the early years.
