The Education and Academic Literacy Department has established a state-of-the-art learning environment to help education majors become competent in implementing the tools of technology for study, research and best pedagogical practices. Education associate majors receive instruction in using these technological resources to enhance teaching, learning, curriculum design, and fieldwork experiences in early childhood and childhood education.
Reading Computer Lab
The Reading Computer Lab is an essential component of our department as well as an important element of the College's overall network of support services. Students use the lab for assistance with their reading and study skills issues. The lab contains a variety of programs and materials on many reading levels. Complete classes and individual students have access to the lab. Tutors are available for class and individual assistance.
Tutorial support is available throughout the year in the computer lab (Colston Hall 404), the Center for Education and Literary Arts (Colston Hall 407), and in the classroom. An education major is available in the Center for Education and Literary Arts to provide assistance in reading and study skills. A CUNY graduate writing fellow is available to all education majors throughout the semester.
