Abstract

Technology can create new opportunities for learning with and from people of other cultures, not just about them The Global Read Aloud (GRA) offers an example of such learning possibilities The GRA is a project that connects classrooms via digital technologies to discuss common texts This exploratory research examined the pedagogical opportunities and challenges associated with using technology to teach for global readiness in the GRA Our findings are based upon the survey responses of 516 teachers who participated in the GRA and the observation in two schools of 16 lessons during the GRA Although technology broadened how and with whom GRA students read and discussed literature, the depth and quality of technology-facilitated teaching specifically for global readiness was somewhat unclear We discuss implications for teaching and teacher preparation for global readiness in a digital era
