Educators need to embrace the creative and collaborative aspects of digital literacy. So much great learning happens through the creative and collaborative processes.

WEAC's curator insight, April 5, 11:09 AM

"Although there is no 'secret sauce' to effectively help educators teach their students digital literacy, there are some key points to focus on:

  • Embrace technology. Allow students to maintain blogs or webpages that enable them to track their own learning. Google Drive easily allows students to create blogs and sites that they can share and collaborate on with their peers.
  • Personalize and share. Have students create digital stories that they can share and publish. Edu.buncee.com is a site where students can utilize hundreds of custom stickers, animations, multimedia, and even record their voice into their project so they can make it “their” own, both figuratively and literally. For example, in “My Day at the Beach,” a student tells her story with stickers and animation and her voice recording. “Come to Istanbul” describes the city and all it has to offer. Give students the ability to email and video chat with students in other countries. Skype Translate allows students to have a real-time conversation with immediate translation.
  • Encourage creativity. Don’t get caught up in the need for strictly finding information and evaluating it. Always allow for creative ways to learn and produce."

Looks more like a walk down an exhibit hall of vendors than skill/talent tied to teaching & learning.
Rod Murray's comment, February 13, 7:21 PM
If every teacher had this skill set, that would dramatically change teaching and learning. The "vendors" are, contrary to your suggestion, mostly free technologies that can and do change teaching and learning.
Richard Whiteside's curator insight, February 19, 5:10 AM

These and many other tools are available. But if you are a teacher, what do you think? Is it really necessary to have all these skills? There is so much content readily available online and if you can organise to prepare materials in teams, or have access to a PLN on or offline, then you can share the load. 

 

Some teachers and content creators have specific skills and their expertise can be used or accessed by anyone. Personally, I think it's good for teachers to be aware of the digital possibilities for their teaching context, but it is generally unrealistic for anyone to expect all teachers to become skilled in so many different areas. 

 

Is it not better to pick fewer areas more relevant to you and focus on them? Be a master of a few areas useful to you, not a jack of all trades feeling stressed that you are master of none.
