This morning I attended the 43rd Annual Conference on Children’s Literature. To begin the conference I attended a session on using digital text to preview short stories with students. I found the knowledge gained to be very beneficial. I learned different ways to use video to create anticipation guides for students on short stories. I know that the vocabulary and background knowledge component would be great for young students. I have been experimenting with digital texts, and plan on incorporating them into my lessons. I also went to the session titled Web 2.0MG! Taking Children’s Literature into the 21st Century. In this session I learned about some free web 2.0 tools that could be used in the classroom to enhance children’s literature. I knew about many of the tools from my coursework, but some of the tools were new to me such as StoryBird. My favorite part of the session was the way the presenters gave ideas and also showed examples of how the web 2.0 tools could be used by students. Authors Meghan McCarthy and Judy Feldman were keynote speakers at the conference. I gained tons of knowledge from the conference, and I would recommend attending the conference if you get the opportunity. Next year I want to attend both days instead of just one.
