Technology and Literacy
Enforces phonics
Fun way to practice letter sounds
Popular tongue twisters - students may already know the songs
Some songs can be used to teach rhyming, syllables, patterns, etc.
Students can make up new words to the same tune once they learn the songs
Come up with motions to make them more interactive
Book Videos
Encourages imagination
Strengthens listening skills
Makes a book feel more like a movie - projected on Smart Board
Can do listening comprehension activities without teacher having to read-aloud
Fluency - listen, read-aloud, partner read, independent read, etc.
Students have choice of books - assuming there are computers for students to each have their own or partner up
Literature circles
YouTube has a ton of resources - even just googling "book videos" brings up many results
Read-Along Books
Seeing and hearing the words
Click on images to enlarge
Students can try to read it first, then click "listen" button if they get stuck
Non-fiction, fiction, fairy-tales, story songs
Interactive activity with the Smart Board - class read-aloud, "popcorn", etc.
story and video
Project Idea: Photo Essays
Feels less like learning to students
For motivation or helping students with disabilities
Ideas for centers
As a reward or incentive

Student engagement
Learning becomes more fun (hopefully)
Hold students' attention longer - they're used to using technology for several hours a day
Digital Storytelling - sound, video, photos; multi-dimensional story to draw reader in
Encourages students to take writing to another level - a whole new kind of writing
Interdisciplinary - incorporate technology, art, science, and social studies into Literacy
