Perceptions I choose to read the journal article, “Harnessing Mobile Technologies to Enrich Adolescents’ Multimodal Literacy Practices in Middle Years Classrooms,” Clary, D., Kigotho, M., & Barros-Torning, M. (2013). Harnessing mobile technologies to enrich adolescents' multimodal literacy practices in middle years classrooms. Literacy Learning: The Middle Years, 21(3), 49-60., for two reasons. The first being that I am a fifth-grade teacher, so this article jumped out at me because I will be able to apply the findings to my classroom. The second reason is that I see a shift in the delivery of information within society and I want to prepare my students for the 21 st century. Ammy Summers, states that students are learning in an informational rich world and that changes how students are learning (Laureate Education, 2015). She also sees a need for technology integration because students have electronic devices at their disposal and are bored without the technology piece (Laureate Education, 2015).
