Abstract

Classroom teachers are responsible for preparing K-12 students for the future in both traditional literacy instruction - reading, writing, listening, and communicating, as well new literacies which is the use of technology to expand literacy skills to digital applications (Leu, Kinzer, Coiro, & Cammack, 2004). Web 2.0 tools afford all learners opportunities to develop digital literacy skills for learning required to meet challenging standards requirements. Given the power and promise of instructional technology, twenty-first century teacher preparation programs are compelled to provide opportunities for pre-service and in-service teachers to gain expertise in technologies for teaching and learning.
