Integrating Digital Text in Your Classroom

by INFOhio Staff 3 months, 3 weeks ago

What are two things you are currently doing in your classroom or instruction that will make integrating digital text easier? 

Kara Hemminger 2 months, 2 weeks ago

1. I model reading digital text with students. I have my Smart TV display digital texts from a variety of sources, including ebooks, web sites, learning apps, INFOhio resources, etc. With younger students, I like to use the word highlighting features. With older students we discuss how to read online sources much as we would non-fiction text features. 

2. Our collection of ebooks is growing, and I've encourage students to use the highlighting and note-taking features available to help them slow down and interact with the text.
