Abstract

Multicultural learning and technology integration in teaching and learning are issues pervasive in Colleges of Education and in K-12 schools as both are key factors in preparing students to participate as 21st century learners and citizens in the global community. This project partners teacher educators with classroom teachers to develop and implement a technology –rich curriculum to teach culture to elementary students. Central to these efforts is a blog which supports both teachers and teacher educators in their professional development as co-designers of the culture curriculum. The blog and other technology tools such as digital storytelling, correspondence matching with Peace Corps volunteers via digital technologies, and web 2.0 applications will also be presented.
