Reflection Question: What challenges and opportunites have you experienced as a teacher and learner that have impacted your ability to teach twenty-first century literacies?

My digital porfolio documents several teaching and learning experiences related to twenty-first century literacies. For example, as a teacher, I am now privy to a host of online learning communities where teachers share resources with one another (Jaffee, July 23, 2009 post). Fordham's Summer Literacy Institute itself allowed me to further my connections and collaborations as well. In terms of my own learning, I am more aware of ways to access information efficiently and accurately. I am also able to communicate and inspire others online in a genuine way. I'm better equipped for the present and future due to these experiences!
