Session Objectives

 

 

This workshop will explore ways in which to use technology to help students improve their reading and writing skills. Equally rich resources are there for numeracy. Some sites address second language learners who may or may not be literate in their native languages.  After this session, spend some time exploring the activities for your own students. You may have to adapt the original concept to suit your needs.
