Abstract

With the increase in media and digital tools, this means our classrooms are significantly changing as well. Language arts classrooms and research supports that teachers should all be using digital tools such as social media, digital literacies, and critical literacies within their curriculum to better suit the academic needs of the students. The proposed curriculum easily integrates different modes of digital tools into lessons for students. Students would be using digital tools to communicate, create, and produce writing projects and literacies. With the digital tool infused curriculum, teachers can better prepare students with real-world writing opportunities and higher engagement.
