Digital Literacy: Skills for the 21st Century: Introduction

Digital Literacy: Skills for the 21st Century: Introduction | The 21st Century Learner and Teacher | Scoop.it

This Digital Literacy Toolkit began with the premise that multimedia authoring, which is happening with the extensive use of PowerPoint in classrooms, must be taught as a skill, just as traditional text-based writing is taught. While teachers and students have become familiar with the technical skills required to use images in multimedia productions, they lack a critical language to determine whether an image or a sound is used appropriately.

Images, sounds and animations — like words — are building blocks whose meanings can be changed to suit the communicative purpose of the author. Just as the same words and phrases can be arranged or manipulated to express different meanings depending on the author’s intent, so can sounds and images. The advent of multimedia authoring and an almost unlimited variety of images available via the Internet in the classroom, makes understanding this concept, that an image’s meaning changes depending on the purpose for which it is used, a new requirement of 21st Century communication.

It Sure Is Complicated: Teen Life in the Digital Age | MiddleWeb

It Sure Is Complicated: Teen Life in the Digital Age | MiddleWeb | The 21st Century Learner and Teacher | Scoop.it
As parent of two teenagers and as a teacher of pre-teens, I took away a lot of information from It’s Complicated. First and foremost is the idea that young people have less and less access to public spaces and time in which to socialize with friends and peers. The days of our moms and dads kicking us outdoors in the morning and saying, “Don’t come back until dinner time” are over.

Kevin McWain's curator insight, April 6, 2014 6:39 PM

I love this statement about teens/students, "What they do have is natural curiosity and a willingness to dive into the unknown, figuring out how a website or app or device works on the go. This can lead to discovery, and to mistakes. By focusing on the mistakes, we lose sight of the powerful potential of technology.." 

I also love the ending. We are the guides and our role has never been more important or more complicated!

A resource of 17 tools that inform teachers about how students process information. I liked the quote about the fact that teachers don't create learning the learners do and as teachers they encourage and facilitate that. I think that is an interesting perspective to take on teaching and some of the tools are also worth a look!
