Digital Literacy

  1. Teach digital literacy : David Thornburg: As more kids gain access to technology in their homes and gain access to the World Wide Web, some teachers might decide that they don’t need to focus on that so much. “Well, the kids have access to this at home, so I don’t need to put special emphasis on it.” And the danger of that is, while it is true that many of our kids have developed tremendous technological skills, (they know how to turn the equipment on, they know how to gain access), it doesn’t mean that they have the research skills or the wisdom to know how to make meaning out of the stuff that they’re finding. And that’s where human intervention in the form of teachers working side by side with the students becomes more important now than ever.
