This website provides specific examples and strategies for creating electronic, educational, experiential, and engaging scrapbooks! Scrapbooking is the practice of combining photographs, memorabilia, and written narratives, poetry, quotations, stories, or other textual content into a scrapbook style album. Technology has expanded the techniques available for producing, duplicating, and distributing scrapbooks.
Many educators view the Internet and multimedia technology as factors contributing to a reduction in the amount of time children are engaged in reading books. Teaching in the Information Age requires that educators modify their view and transform their instructional practices to utilize technology's power to improve the reading ability of students. Today's students need to be guided in developing the ability to make use of the Internet and multimedia technology to increase critical literacy skills. Inquiry-based instruction in a collaborative classroom environment helps teachers to do just that. Students are motivated to read not only to find answers to their questions about the world, but also to read for enjoyment.
