59. Making Connections Between Digital Literacy Programs and Classroom Literacy Instruction
Digital education programs implemented during COVID-19 school closures continue to be used in the classroom as a complement to teachers’ instruction. The bulk of educators who participated in a 2020 survey about the effectiveness of digital learning largely reported a positive impact on student performance; however, fewer participants believed that digital learning tools made instructors more effective (source: schoology.com, 2020; n=16,906 survey participants). While digital learning reports may not suggest explicit instructional techniques, data from the programs can inform instructional method selection and efforts to differentiate instruction. This interactive presentation will take you on a journey of considering early literacy assessment findings, using the “Assessment of Literacy and Language”; analyzing early literacy content in digital programs, using WORD Force; and leveraging those findings as well as student performance data to generate ideas for early literacy classroom instruction.
