Digital Literacy Skills

Digital Literacy Skills All Educators Should Know

Course Description

Implementation of 1:1 technology is not enough. Digital literacy skills have become more critical for student learning than content knowledge–unfortunately, most students and educators “don’t know what they don’t know.” Even the best problem solving skills can be hampered without a deep understanding of the tools and processes for digging past surface-level information often found on the web. Develop a better understanding of how the web works, including the use of advanced search techniques to find richer more relevant information for better professional productivity and classroom integration. Develop a stronger understanding of web tracking, privacy, and “”publicness”” issues in teacher and student usage of web services.

By the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Develop a better understanding of how the web works
  • Use advanced search techniques to find richer more relevant information for better professional productivity and classroom integration
  • Learn about alternative search tools that can enhance classroom activities and instructional planning
  • Develop a stronger understanding of web tracking, privacy, and “publicness” issues in teacher and student usage of web services
  • Participants will examine/discuss the importance of students acquiring vital digital literacy skills for better problem solving as well as implications for using these tools in their learning environment.
