Education has transformed dramatically over the years.  The curriculum and how we teach has changed, and is constantly changing.  Among the many changes, one of the most significant is the introduction of technology into our schools.  Computers and the Internet have changed our classrooms and have enabled teachers and students access to the world, without leaving their chairs.  Students can email students from a school in Europe, they can see what Christ the Redeemer looks like through satellites on Google Earth, they can create videos using computer software, and so the list goes on.  So what does this new technology mean for educators and how does it affect literacy in the 21st Century classroom?
