What do you feel are the key digital literacy skills that 21st century learners need?

What do you feel are the key digital literacy skills that 21st century learners need? | Education |

Digital literacy has become one of the major issues facing educators in this early part of the 21st century. The need to develop students and teachers digital literacies has become increasingly accepted as fact and yet most teachers' and students' understanding of what exactly constitutes a digital literacy still seems to remain quite vague. Even more vague seems to be teachers' understanding of how precisely we go about developing those literacies.

That's where professional development plays a major role. Management and even instructors need to seek sources that offer these skills. Is it time consuming? Yes! I also agree that the "digital divide" and computer literacy need to be considered when delivering learning content to students.

Top Educational iPad Apps for High School | The Classroom | Synonym on Synonym<

"An iPad is a pricey gadget but not necessarily an entirely extravagant purchase. The App Store offers much more than "Angry Birds" and Instagram. Its stock includes educational tools for just about every high school subject and standardized exam. By providing access to no- and low-cost alternatives to other academic expenses such as graphing calculators, textbooks and tutors, iPads have the potential to save families money. At their best, educational apps empower students to customize their study methods so that every learning style has a path to academic achievement"
