Abstract

Abstract: New information and communications technologies (ICT) are redefining the concept of literacy. Language arts educators have the responsibility to integrate new literacies into their instruction. VoiceThread is a web-based, collaborative, multimedia presentation tool that teachers can use with their students to improve reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills. This paper is a description of collaboration between a university faculty member in elementary education and an instructional technology consultant to incorporate ICT within a required graduate language arts methods class utilizing VoiceThread. A follow-up research study is in progress to determine 1)whether Web 2.0 tools, such as VoiceThread, effectively impact student literacy development 2)if teachers feel adequately prepared to implement 21st century skills in language arts instruction, and 3)barriers that exist for teachers in using Web 2.0 tools in promoting literacy.
