Transcript of Digital Literacy

Digital Literacy Digital Literacy is one of the 9 Elements associated with Digital Citizenship. "Digital citizenship can be defined as the norms of appropriate, responsible behavior with regard to technology use." (Bailey, Ribble, 2007-2011. ) According to the authors of the book Digital Citizenship in Schools, digital literacy is defined as, the "process of teaching and learning about technology and the use of technology.While schools have made great progress in the area of technology infusion, much remains to be done. A renewed focus must be made on what technologies must be taught as well as how it should be used. New technologies are finding their way into the work place that are not being used in schools (e.g., videoconferencing, online sharing spaces such as wikis). In addition, workers in many different occupations need immediate information (just-in-time information). This process requires sophisticated searching and processing skills (i.e., information literacy). Learners must be taught how to learn in a digital society. In other words, learners must be taught to learn anything, anytime, anywhere. Business, military, and medicine are excellent examples of how technology is being used differently in the 21st century. As new technologies emerge, learners need to learn how to use that technology quickly and appropriately. Digital Citizenship involves educating people in a new way— these individuals need a high degree of information literacy skills." (Bailey,Ribble, 2007-2011) Essential Questions:

Should Technology be used to access information to learn new concepts? (Bailey, Ribble, pg. 21) How can students use digital technologies to take advantage of educational opportunities available to them? (Bailey, Ribble, pg. 21) With new technologies at their fingertips, students are asking for new ways to learn.
Educators should be encouraged to look at alternative ways of presenting information that can engage these students.
(Bailey, G: Ribble, M pg. 22) "We have the opportunity to create a new age of education and the time begins NOW!" (Bailey, G; Ribble, M pg. 22) Digital Literacy Issues Teachers use digital technologies that students can use and access inside and outside of the classssroom e-mail browsers
search/dowload engines Learning digital basics Appropriate Digital Literacy Inappropriate Digital Literacy Schools not offering online educational programs, classes, or opportunities Teachers not provindingresourses for students on onkine blogs, websites. or podcasts "Students need to understand that certain technology skills are critical when entering the work world-just "liking" technology is not enough. We all need to understand how a given technology works and how to use it appropriately." (Bailey, G; Ribble, M, pg. 23) Incorporating Digital Citizenship and Digital Literacy Digital Citizenship should become a priority for schools.
Digital citizenship princials should be taught at all levels and should be integratred into all subjects.
The time to start teaching digital citicenship is now!
