Transcript of Literacy in the 21st Century.

21st century literacy means for someone to be an effective communicator and critical thinker. It is more broadly defined than the ability to read and write. It entails having 21st century skills, such as,

◾Proficiency and fluency in technology
◾Develop relationships with others to confront and solve problems together
◾Design and share information for global communities to meet a variety of purpose
◾Technology at fingertips to communicate but to also create, manipulate, design, and self-actualize.
("NTCE," 2016)
Literacy is a collection of cultural and communicative practices. It is not a one size fits all. As society continues to grow, change and advance in technology, literacy will change with it as well. Literacy comes in different forms for different abilities such as being digital literate, Art literate, Spanish Literate, Language literate, military literate, soccer literate, on and on. (Price, 2013)

Textbooks are not the only information source used to teach in content areas. It is still part of our repertoire, but now we use multiple resources. "Text" has a variety of other meanings. It may refer to trade books, informational articles, song lyrics, movies, newspapers, television shows, poetry, conversations, everyday life situations, and more. The term is so far reaching because multiple literacies, such as information literacy, critical literacy, and media literacy, permeate every aspect of our lives.

Technology at fingertips to communicate but to also create, manipulate, design, and self-actualize.

What Literacy Means Today
Develop proficiency and fluency with the tools of technology
"Students in the 21st century should have experience with and develop skills around technological tools used in the classroom and the world around them. Through this they will learn about technology and learn through technology. In addition, they must be able to select the most appropriate tools to address particular needs."
("NCTE," 2016)
The 21st century student is surrounded by technology. Infusing technology into academic content allows students to essentially create their world around them.

Cool off— Take a step back, breathe deep, and gain some emotional distance before trying to talk things out.

Tell what’s bothering you using “I messages.”
”I messages” are a tool for expressing how we feel without attacking or blaming. By starting from “I” we take responsibility for the way we perceive the problem.

Each person restates what they heard the other person say.
Reflective listening demonstrates that we care enough to hear the other person out, rather than just focusing on our own point of view.

Take responsibility.
In the majority of conflicts, both parties have some degree of responsibility.

Brainstorm solutions and come up with one that satisfies both people.
Resolving conflicts is a creative act. There are many solutions to a single problem. The key is a willingness to seek compromises.

Affirm, forgive, or thank.
A handshake, hug, or kind word gives closure to the resolution of conflicts.
