At reThinking Literacy we want to ensure that the presentations are focused on teaching literacy, but in ways that are enhanced by digital technologies. Finding the balance is critical, we don’t want presentations that are just about technology, nor do we want presentations that are just about traditional forms of teaching literacy. We need both!
