The Center for Adolescent Literacies hosted online professional development workshops for middle and secondary teachers (grades 6-12) and others who want to learn how to use technology to engage students in meaningful learning experiences on Tuesday, June 20, 2017 from 5 to 8:15 p.m. Each workshop ran for 40 minutes and included modeling of tools and technologies to foster active and meaningful learning in different content areas. The focus of these workshops was on middle and secondary teaching and learning but teachers in other grades may find these tools useful. Many of the resources shared in this workshop as well as many others are available the Multiliteracies Website.
