This highly readable book is about keeping the mind open to the amazing possibilities that the digital world affords teachers and their students. Aside from the ability to give immediate feedback and save responses, interactive whiteboards can facilitate using assessment to improve student learning.
Literacy Smarts advocates for student-centred learning, where teachers act as guides on the journey of learning that includes student choice, focused assessment, differentiated curriculum, collaborative work, and higher-level thinking. Based on extensive classroom experience, the book argues that interactive whiteboards can create numerous possibilities for teaching and learning. It describes how interactive whiteboards can lead us into the future of learning —interpreting, managing, exploring, and expanding our students' thinking and enabling authentic learning. It will enable teachers to help students grow as learners as they think, interact, and engage with a wide variety of texts across the content areas.
