Creating the Perfect BLT: Balanced Literacy and Technology


In the 21st century, teachers have more opportunities than ever before to transform their teaching through technology integration. The time-tested, research-proven, reading instructional approach of balanced literacy can provide the perfect context.

Dr. Brandee Ramirez, Educational Coach for Tustin Unified School District, will explore the ways that technology can support, enhance, extend, and even transform traditional balanced literacy teaching practices in the pre-kindergarten through third grade classroom. Through the presentation of specific apps, websites, and evaluative tools, she will expand participants’ ed-tech knowledge base, and guide them through real-world examples of balanced literacy technology (BLT) integration successfully implemented in California’s Tustin Unified School District, as well as other school districts around the country.
Webinar attendees will:

  • LEARN how technology can be effectively and seamlessly integrated to support and transform teaching practices at the pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, 1st grade, 2nd grade, and 3rd grade levels
  • GAIN an understanding of the Substitution Augmentation Modification Redefinition (SAMR) technology evaluation framework, with an understanding of how to apply the SAMR model to transform your own teaching practices
  • UNDERSTAND which specific apps and tools can be quickly and effectively implemented as part of a balanced literacy program, along with ideas for implementation

This webinar will be of particular interest to PreK-Grade 3 teachers, educators, librarians, and administrators.
