Literacy can no longer be defined simply as the ability to read and write; logical thinking, critical problem-solving, and technological savvy are integral aspects of contemporary literacy. Today’s teachers in today’s classrooms are faced with the challenge to integrate technology in their lessons. Teaching Vocabulary with Hypermedia, 6-12 supports the teaching and learning of new literacies that take advantage of hypermedia and allow technology integration in the classroom. A hypermedia environment (like the World Wide Web) links video, sound, graphic and text elements.
Through this book, O’Hara and Pritchard describe using hypermedia as a learning tool in three distinct ways: 1) how to use hypermedia to teach content area vocabulary, 2) how to create hypermedia lessons focused on the learning of new vocabulary and content area concepts, and 3) how to teach students to create their own hypermedia learning experiences. Content area teacherswill find in Teaching Vocabulary with Hypermedia, 6-12 a litany of lessons and classroom examples that will enhance their instructional practice to include the newest technologies and motivate today’s students.
“This is just what the doctor ordered for today’s curriculum. It is timely, meaningful, fun and practical to the needs of students for today and tomorrow.” —Joseph W. Guenther, University of Wisconsin, Platteville, Wisconsin
“Teaching Vocabulary with Hypermedia, 6-12 is timely, informative and soundly-based on current research...The writing style is refreshingly professional without being loaded with unnecessary jargon or wordiness. The authors are to be commended” –Margot Kinberg, National University, Oceanside, California
