Digital fluency for the digital age

Digital fluency for the digital age | WebTech4Teachers | Scoop.it
“ The knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to harness new digital media for teaching and learning are an extension of many traditional skills but with the complex addition of new skills and a changed focus. These new skills and understandings often occur in a context that is quite different from the centuries-old traditional print-based context. In an industrial-age designed, subject-based education system, where change is slow, these new knowledge, skills and attitudes are becoming increasingly urgent for students to acquire. However, teaching and learning these new skills, and different ways of working with information and communicating, need to be based on sound evidence and positive educational experiences. A subject called digital fluency is one way to address the digital-age skills gap. A digital fluency subject will help to address the issues of professional learning and pedagogy, as well as assist students to learn new skills in a structured way, so that these new skills can be applied whenever the Internet is being used.”

"The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics' Principles and Standards for School Mathematics (NCTM, 2000, p. 60) highlights that, "Students who have opportunities, encouragement, and support for speaking, writing, reading and listening in mathematics classes reap dual benefits: they communicate to learn mathematics, and they learn to communicate mathematically."

Mel Riddile's curator insight, June 26, 2014 11:07 AM
  1. According to the National Institute for Literacy (2007), the improvement of students' writing skills is related to students' capacity to learn.
  2. writing in the mathematics classroom promotes a deeper understanding of concepts and procedures.

Writing in math is a must for comprehension, application, and transfer into long term memory.  We solve problems; we write for mastery.

"Raising a digitally savvy and responsible student does require  explicit modelling  and instruction on how to deal with the vagaries of Internet. In an age where everything you do online leaves  indelible marks (digital footprints)  that can be accessed and viewed by anyone , knowing how and what to share and with whom to share it become digital imperatives that every student should be aware of. This kind of knowledge is at the core of the digital citizenship concept."

A number of good points made in this blog. Sentence frames are great for strugglers, so that is not at the top of my list, so be sure and keep reading!!

Lucas Arnestad's curator insight, January 6, 2014 8:49 PM

Teaching academic language is very important in all grades. By teaching kids these vocabulary words it helps them solve higher level problems by understanding every part of the problem. Eventually with consistent learning of new vocabulary it makes the student have better grades, get into a better college, and then get a great job. This article introduces 8 strategies of teaching academic language. If I were a teacher I would dynamically introduce academic vocabulary. It's having your students read authentic context with vocabulary words in the text. Repeated encounters with a word can help students internalize the definition. When I was younger, unlike some kids, I didn't want to read very much. So having every student in your class read the vocabulary filled test insures that every student has a chance to learn.
