Welcome TILE-SIG Members!

The Technology In Literacy Education-Special Interest Group is affiliated with the International Reading Association (view our IRA Website here).

Our mission: The purpose of the TILE-SIG is to improve the quality of literacy instruction through the use of computers and related technologies, provide support for the use of these technologies in the classroom, disseminate information and ideas, and report research on technology and literacy.

This wiki is a collaborative space where anyone interested in technology and literacy can learn and communicate with each other. You can view this wiki without joining the SIG, but if you would like to contribute to this wiki or read versions of the SIG newsletter after 2009, please contact Paula Saine, Membership Chair at sainep@miamioh.edu or read information at the "membership" link from the left menu to learn more about the SIG and how you can join. Thank you for your interest and involvement in IRA's TILE-SIG!!
