Our Presentation
Digital Writing
Resources/Information from:
Because Digital Writing Matters: Improving Student Writing in Online and Multimedia Environments
by the National Writing Project
"Young people today have an unprecedented level of access to a wider range of content and connectivity than ever before, yet access does not ensure that reflection and learning take place. Student writers still need thoughtful and well-prepared teachers and mentors. Computers will not replace teachers, nor should they. Teachers of writing have a crucial role in supporting students in understanding the complexities of communicating in a 21st Century world. " (2)

What is Digital Literacy?
Digital literacy is the ability to find, evaluate, utilize, share, and create content using information technologies and the Internet.
What does Digital Literacy Look Like?
Digital literacy is when students are able to engage with multimedia to read and interpret text, sounds and images and manipulate and evaluate data to construct their own meaning.
Digital literacy also includes a student having knowledge about how to use technology to construct meaning, but most importantly in ways that are appropriate to their needs.
In the book Digital Citizenship in Schools, researchers believer that "Too often the focus is on learning the technology itself, with little time given to discussing what is or isn't appropriate."
Examples of Digital Literacy
Understanding how to use web browsers, search engines, email, text, wiki, blogs, Photoshop, PowerPoint, video creation/editing software , etc. to showcase learning.
Evaluating online resources for accuracy/trustworthiness of information.
Using online classes to enhance learning in the classroom.
Choosing appropriate media to showcase learning - understand what platforms will best illustrate your message and learning to peers and educators.
Creating online content to be utilized both in and out of the classroom - both student and teacher.
Why is Twitter and Facebook Important?
Digital Footprint
Concise writing
Communication skills

"Digital literacy isn’t about knowing computers inside and out; it’s about using technology to change the way you think. If critical thinking skills haven’t yet become a part of your students’ digital citizenship, it’s time to rethink your teaching strategy." - Saga Briggs
