    Add images to your LiveBinder, edit, and generally prepare the unit for sharing with a professional audience by omitting all grammatical and typographical errors, working on format, revising the document for a general audience (as well as your collaborating teacher), providing context (if need be), providing helpful links, etc.
    If you are not going to keep your self-hosted blog, please either a) move it to a free site (by following these simple steps linked here) and/or b) indicate whether you would like your e-folio, self-hosted or free blog linked on your LiveBinder page instead on this Google Doc. If I do not hear from you, I will assume that you would like me to link your blog.
    If you have not yet done so, this is your last chance to upload your materials to TaskStream (see sidebar to the right of this page for details). Remember: grades will not be given for the course until materials are properly uploaded onto TaskStream.

    21st-Century Literacies).
    For this draft, abide by principles of web design and basically respond to this question: What does it mean to be a teacher in the 21st century? In your concise statement, discuss the important role that technology plays in the classrooms of tomorrow. You may want to link to authoritative sources on the subject such as ISTE's NETS T and NETS S and other seminal resources that we have read together this semester (review the course calendar for these). Remember to be mindful of readers who may lack the same level of enthusiasm for and expertise in technology as you; and don't forget your role as an "ambassador" of these ideas.

    Integrating Technology into Real ELA Classrooms
    Talk to your host teacher from this semester* and ask him or her for one assignment that they regularly do with students that features a culminating project in traditional print literacy (e.g., an essay, a research project, a Regents essay, etc.). This could be something you observed your teacher teach or it might be something that they haven’t yet done or have been wanting to do.
