Technology Supplants Curriculum?

My group (Kiran, Rachel, Pam and I) will be presenting the topic for Day 6: “Technology Supplants Curriculum”

There are 2 readings for the class: (Media Education and the End of the Critical Consumer. ) and (What happens to literacies old and new when they’re turned into policy. PDF)

Our job is to provide one other reading and present this topic to the class. I’m interested in the topic of new literacies and what is being required of students (Are we really preparing them for a new world, or an old one that will be gone when they arrive. What kinds of things will we need to include? (Tumblebooks? Podcasts? Audio books?) Stay tuned for more on this.
