Technology Literacy Applications in Learning Environments presents readers with a view of technology literacy in a learning environment. While word processing skills are important, the development of technology skills covers the areas of presentation software, storage, human interaction, and virtual reality. Instructional technology is dedicated to discovering and developing the pedagogical skills of teaching and learning in a technology-enhanced learning environment.
This report is the final product of a two-year study by the
Committee on Assessing Technological Literacy, a group
of experts on diverse subjects under the auspices of the
National Academy of Engineering (NAE) and the Board on Testing and
Assessment at the Center for Education, part of the National Research
Council (NRC). The committee’s charge was to determine the most
viable approach or approaches to assessing technological literacy in U.S.
K–12 students, K–12 teachers, and out-of-school adults.
Teaching children how to read and write
has always been the primary objective of
education or schooling. However, in
recent years there have been concerns
that this major objective has not been
achieved, or has not been achieved at a
satisfactory level, by many students by
the end of the compulsory years of
schooling. This has led to a renewed
focus on literacy at both Commonwealth
and state level, and the introduction of
new policies and practices which are
aimed at improving literacy outcomes.
These are trying times for teachers. We know more than
we ever have about teaching, learning, and literacy and their
complexities. Yet we persist with public policies that assume
that if we just increase the pressure on teachers to improve
their students’ test scores, they will somehow teach better—
and perhaps faster—and that children will develop literacies
that will engage them and carry them into the future.
Such assessments can provide the foundation and impetus for policy interventions. The National Adult Literacy Survey (NALS) was designed to provide such information. NALS was a household survey of a nationally representative sample of 26,000 adults age 16 and older conducted by the U.S. Department of Education in 1992. It built on two prior litera

Coaching, a wave of memories and emotions overwhelmed
me. Six years ago, I was one of four elementary school principals
who initiated the Reading Excellence program in Iowa’s Waterloo
Community Schools. I had a lot to learn about such concepts as
walk-throughs, gradual release of responsibility, scaffolding, peer
coaching, modeling, and cognitive coaching—all while leading
the staff of what was then the district’s largest elementary school....
A silent killer maneuvers just below the surface of almost all the
health issues that will lead to death and disease in the 21st century.
The U.S. population faces well-recognized health risks, including
chronic diseases, environmental degradation, and natural and manmade
disasters, but the silent killer is less diagnosed and remains
essentially untreated. The silent killer is low health literacy: the
reality that almost half of adults in the United States, over 90 million
people, struggle to find, understand, and correctly use health

The purpose of this article is to review published studies of the English literacy of children in
Canada who are English language learners (ELLs) with the goal of understanding the read-
ing development of ELLs and characteristics of reading disabilities (RD) in this population.
Phonological processing, syntactic awareness, and working memory of ELLs with and without
RD were compared to that of native English-speaking (L1) students with and without RD. Our
reviewfound that ELLswith RDexperienced reading difﬁculties similar to those of L1 students
e licentiate thesis is a piece of academic work under the theme of /Participation Literacy/.
The thesis concerns the Web 2.0 concept construction. Web 2.0 is a new mindset
on the Internet. The main characteristics include ”Web as a Platform”, Collective
Intelligence, Folksonomy and interfaces build with lightweight technologies such as
Ajax. Web 2.0 is not only a technique, but also an ideology – an ideology of participation.
A Web 2.0 service is completely web based and generally draws on open access.
This richly illustrated publication about scientific visual literacy critically examines the images and icons of evolution as they appear in scientific and in popular contexts. It seeks to help teachers to understand the complexities of evolution through visual means and, in the process, to acquire the skills needed to read the visuals with accuracy and depth of interpretation.
We used descriptive statistics to examine demographic variables related to
reading as well as to compare reading outcomes for the two groups of students, those
instructed only in English and those instructed first in Spanish and then transitioned into
English reading instruction.

Our starting point is the question, “Who invented
the environment?” Chapter 1 describes how
humans’ awareness of their impacts on the environment
developed and when and why the concept of the
environment was invented. Chapter 2 provides a first definition
of environmental literacy and introduces the value
that transdisciplinarity can bring to how humans address
