Disclaimer: This session will focus on literacy Apps for upper elementary and secondary.

Literacy has traditionally been described as the ability to read and write.


The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) defines literacy as the "ability to identify, understand, interpret, create, communicate, compute and use printed and written materials associated with varying contexts. Literacy involves a continuum of learning in enabling individuals to achieve their goals, to develop their knowledge and potential, and to participate fully in their community and wider society."

Where have we seen some of these words before?
