"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."
