The research on comprehension instruction indicates that active readers who think as they read
use a variety of strategies-they ask questions, determine importance, synthesize information
and connect what they are learning to what they already know. These same strategies are
essential for students to turn information into knowledge when using technology. Designed for
educators who desire to move beyond device specific or single-purpose, skill-focused apps, this
session will focus on how a limited number of tools can transform learning as students become
inspired by audience and authentic feedback, connect with classrooms and experts around the
globe, and create projects previously unimaginable. The session will:
 marry best practice instructional strategies with current digital tools and practices
 address social media, digital publishing, student creation, reflection and cross-grade,
cross-school, cross-global collaboration
 offer specifics in supporting students to read with a critical eye and a skeptical stance as
they navigate and evaluate digitalsources
 provide a variety of ways to help their students engage in research and investigation
that spark local, as well as global learning,right from their own classrooms
