We’ve had a great orientation to our Spring Digital Reading Course from PBS TeacherLine. It’s been great to virtually meet each of you! I have enjoyed getting to know you in our Introduction Forums. We are all connecting and learning, each from a different U.S. state at times that are most convenient for us.
Today begins our first week! I so appreciate the emphasis this week on the Joyful aspect of Reading. Please check your email or the course Emails Forum for my Week 1 Tips Email.
I am taking the idea of Joyful reading to heart and this Friday, I am scheduling a “Read Only” morning. I plan to turn off all technology and read! (Good thing I’m on Spring Break or it would be curtains at the university!)
PBS TeacherLine’s course RDLA400 – Developing Passionate Readers in a Digital World is set to begin tomorrow, March 13th, with Introductions and Orientation.
In this course from PBS TeacherLine, you will explore the answers to essential questions of reading using digital resources. You will also learn the basic elements of and rationale for reading initiatives that inspire students to read independently. You will discover a wealth of online literature resources, gain a deeper appreciation for digital reading and audio technologies, and learn how author and genre studies inspire and motivate student reading. Moreover, you will explore your own personal reading habits and use this understanding to model passionate reading. All of these activities will occur in a collaborative, online professional learning network.
