Session Description:

How do teachers decide which websites and online resources to use?
Educators are inundated with so many links that it's hard to
filter what is reasonable and valuable. Participants will see the
potential of technology and the variety of online resources that are
available to meet the literacy needs in today’s classrooms.
This session will focus on reviewing and engaging in some of the best
websites that support literacy instruction and organization.
