In this new policy brief, the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) writes that, “As new technologies shape literacies, they bring opportunities for teachers at all levels to foster reading and writing in more diverse and participatory contexts.” Research shows that effective instruction in 21st-century literacies takes an integrated approach, helping students understand how to access, evaluate, synthesize, and contribute to information. This policy brief also discusses common myths about 21st-century literacies and the teacher’s role.
