Presented by Bridget Dalton, Vanderbilt University

Bridget will illustrate the possibilities of using multimedia author studies, video book trailers, multimedia retellings and literary analysis, soundscapes, and Web 2.0 tools to build teen’s comprehension and love of books while developing important digital literacies. She will demonstrate the realities of how class novels can be digitally scaffolded to provide support for a wide range of learners and provide strategies for scaffolding students’ multimodal composing. Examples of student work will be provided.
