Emerging technologies have changed the way we as a society communicate and have increased the need for students to become proficient in multi-literacies including information literacy, visual literacy, and digital literacy. The goals of this project include collaboration with partnership teachers in the design, development, implementation, and assessment of a reading and writing unit that encourages art and technology integration as methods for developing multi-literacy skills in elementary age students.
