Amplify: Digital Teaching and Learning in the K-6 Classroom

CONNECTING COMPREHENSION AND TECHNOLOGY

AMPLIFY

Using technology doesn’t mean that we throw out those strategies that we’ve found to be successful with students. It’s not the tools—it’s what we do with them that counts.

-  Kristin Ziemke & Katie Muhtaris


 

Connecting Comprehension and Technology, co-authored with Stephanie Harvey, Anne Goudvis and Katie Muhtaris. Using Stephanie and Anne's body of work on comprehension and thinking strategies, Kristin builds upon these practices using innovative technology tools that amplify thinking and document student learning.
