Discover how one elementary school literacy coach and librarian/technology coach worked together to create purposeful and authentic integration of literacy and digital learning. Teachers have found that with the help of digital tools, they can increase student/teacher efficiency and enhance student literacy skills. Examples include how teachers and students use digital tools to formatively assess and set goals, log reading, record and strengthen book club discussions, plus so much more! Empower students to have voice and choice while reading and writing, all while including parents in the process.

Tara Kempen and Jennifer Zurawski are teachers in the School District of West DePere. Tara is and Elementary Literacy Coach and Jennifer is a Library Media/Instructional Technology Specialist. They will be presenting at the WSRA Convention on February 8, 2019.
