Session Description:
Literature comes alive and students acquire 21st century skills when technology enters the humanities classroom. Consider Lord of
the Flies
on a wiki island, Shakespeare in the movies, Antigone as a graphic novel, and The Odyssey in cyberspace. Creating podcasts to listen to Shakespeare, using OneNote for collaborative note-taking, making Quizlet flashcards for vocabulary, and utilizing online grammar programs for practice make learning more fun, efficient, and engaging. This session will explore how the humanities can leverage technology to ensure that students love literature and understand the fundamentals of expression and communication in today’s world.
