The Need For Increased Integration of Technology and Digital Skills in the Literacy Field in Canada

Need for Increased Technology in Literacy by Sarah Elaine Eaton (cover)by Sarah Elaine Eaton, Ph.D.

Technology does not need to be adopted because it is fashionable, but because the face of learning worldwide has changed dramatically over the past several decades at all levels, from early childhood education to workforce training. When literacy professionals integrate technology in meaningful ways, they ultimately help learners prepare for long-term success.

This book highlights the changing landscape of Canadian education and training. It offers recommendations for literacy organizations, managers, coordinators, staff, volunteer tutors and other practitioners to incorporate technology into professional practice in an easily accessible manner that focuses on building professional competencies.

Topics covered include:

  • The changing nature of education and training.
  • The current state of literacy instruction.
  • Emerging models of technology integration in the literacy field.
  • The need for continuing professional development.
  • Recommendations.
