From having the courage to experiment with different technologies to possessing online literacy, readers said being a tech-savvy student in the 21st century is about much more than learning how to use a certain software program or device—it’s about being able to adapt to what’s constantly changing.

Moving at the Speed of Creativity - Combining 21st Century Skills, Project Based Learning, and iPads

Moving at the Speed of Creativity - Combining 21st Century Skills, Project Based Learning, and iPads | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it

“Combining 21st Century Skills, Project Based Learning, and iPads” at the 2012 Mobile Learning Conference in Phoenix, Arizona, on April 13, 2012. The blogger's THOUGHTS AND COMMENTS ARE IN ALL CAPS.

 

The official conference session description was:

“The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.” -Alan Watts. Learn what one technology team experienced from initiation to implementation of iPads in a school in the heart of Coconut Grove, Florida. “Computer teachers” have transformed into “technology integrators” and move from within the lab to the classroom, the campus, and beyond. Integrators must understand the 4 C’s of 21st century skills and how project based teaching and learning supports it. – What comes first? Teachers? Students? Devices? Professional development? – Obstacles to overcome – Resistant teachers: “This is just a fad!” – Hardware/Software logistics

The Promise of Libraries Tranforming Communities | Renee Hobbs | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it

"As a 2012 Technology Fellow for the ALA's Office of Information Technology Policy (OITP), I've had a chance to work with academic librarians, school librarians and public librarians on an emerging definition of digital literacy. Although digital literacy may take different forms depending on the individual, it’s a constellation of life skills that include basic foundational literacies, like reading comprehension and computer skills, as well as transformational literacies, that include the ability to access and evaluate information, create and critique messages, and use reflective thinking and civic action to make a difference in the world."

Digital identity in the 21st century | Welcome to Digital ID wiki

Digital identity in the 21st century | Welcome to Digital ID wiki | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it

We've created the Digital ID wiki to provide students, teachers, and administrators with a toolkit of reliable information, resources, and guidelines to help all of us learn how to be upstanding Digital Citizens who maintain a healthy Digital Identity (ID) in the 21st Century.

 

Our goal is to help our students answer these three Essential Questions:

 

What does it mean to be a (digital) citizen?
What are my rights as a citizen?
What are my responsibilities as a citizen?
