The role of e-learning in literacy teaching and learning
A growing body of research indicates that e-learning has considerable potential to enhance literacy teaching and learning. At the same time, New Zealand teachers have access to an evidence-based body of knowledge about how to improve literacy outcomes for their students.
This raises important questions:
- What is the intersection between these two bodies of knowledge?
- What role could – or should – e-learning play in students’ literacy learning?
- How might teachers use e-learning to personalise the learning opportunities they provide for their students?
