This book isn't about technology. It's about the teaching practices that technology enables.

Instead of focusing on where to point and click, this book addresses the ways in which teachers and students work together to navigate continuous change and what it means to read, write, view, listen, and communicate in the twenty-first century.

Sara Kajder (a nationally recognized expert on technology and literacy) recognizes that students are reading and writing every day in their "real lives." Drawing on Adolescent Literacy: An NCTE Policy Research Brief, Kajder offers solutions for connecting these activities with the literacy practices required by classroom curricula.

Through extensive interviews and classroom experiences, Kajder offers examples of both students and teachers who have successfully integrated technology to enrich literacy learning.

As part of the Principles in Practice imprint, _Adolescents and Digital Literacies: Learning Alongside Our Students_ offers critical consideration of students' in-school and out-of-school digital literacy practices in a practical, friendly, and easily approachable manner.
