- The Edurati Review: It's Not about the Technology
I am sitting here at my laptop, occasionally watching my Skype and Tweetdeck notifications in case I miss something from a family member or colleague, and I'm going to honestly tell you that learning in the 21st century is not about the technology.

- ReadWriteThink: Lesson Plan: Using Technology to Analyze and Illustrate Symbolism in <i>Night</i>
Literacy learning is no longer limited to books; to be truly literate, students need to investigate and use technology in the classroom. This lesson for middle and high school students explores the use of symbolism in Elie Wiesel's autobiographical novel Night. After learning about symbolism and discussing its use in the book, students create visual representations using ReadWriteThink.org's Literary Graffiti tool. Students then express their response to the symbolism in the book by creating a photomontage using images from multiple websites about the Holocaust and text from survivor stories, articles about hate crimes, and Night.
