Abstract

Empowering students for academic and economic success in a world of technological change and cultural diversity involves new basics of literacy (Bianco & Freebody, 1997; Lankshear & Snyder, 2000; Luke & Freebody, 1999; Unsworth, 2002) These 'new basics' should allow students to reflect on and respond critically to texts. This presentation reports on a research project in progress, which aims to improve primary school students' construction and application of knowledge in literacy, particularly in relation to online learning. A qualitative approach, involving an action/reflection process is used to integrate ICT into an upper primary classroom to examine the role of scaffolding in students' literacy learning.
