Digital Literacy in the Primary Classroom

Digital Literacy in the Primary Classroom | Teachning, Learning and Develpoing with Technology | Scoop.it

Kevin McLaughlin writes a great post sharing: What is Digital Literacy

 

Futurelab, an organisation ‘committed to developing creative and innovative approaches to education, teaching and learning’, gives the following definition in its publication Digital Literacy across the curriculum:

 

To be digitally literate is to have access to a broad range of practices and cultural resources that you are able to apply to digital tools. It is the ability to make and share meaning in different modes and formats; to create, collaborate and communicate effectively and to understand how and when digital technologies can best be used to support these processes.

I think lack of consultation is huge. When consulted, teachers can express what they experience in their classrooms and lives. Are they ready for a particular technology? Technology involves conversations.

Action Research: The Ultimate Problem-Solving Strategy for Educators - InformED | Teachning, Learning and Develpoing with Technology | Scoop.it

According to Sagor, action research can be adopted by an individual teacher, a collaborative group of colleagues sharing a common concern, or an institution’s entire faculty. These three different approaches to organising for research serve three compatible, yet distinct, purposes: creating reflective teachers; building professional cultures; and making progress on institutional priorities.

In an ICT integrated society, it is important that people are information literate. That means being able to search for and analyse information for their benefits. As websites on the Internet become more popular teachers need to teach their students the right skills and knowledge so that their students are able to become information literate. Any guide therefore, that will assist teachers in doing so is worth using as a resource as reference for both teachers and students to use.

The end of ‘just Google it’: Why students need to be digitally literate | Teachning, Learning and Develpoing with Technology | Scoop.it
With so much information readily available in a range of multimodal formats, from text to multimedia, apps and social networking, we need to blend technological learning and critical literacy together so that students can critically appraise the information that they are accessing. Teaching digital literacy is something that can be embedded into regular teaching in all subjects at all stages of education. To do that, it needs to be explicitly taught and reinforced by every teacher in every subject in a way that is appropriate for students.
