This course uses the Common Sense Education K-12 Digital Literacy and Citizenship Curriculum as our main text, as well as some articles and videos. The course incorporates five phases to help you implement digital literacy in your classroom. As education evolves toward customized learning, digital literacy skills become absolutely critical–unfortunately, most students and educators “don’t know what they don’t know.” Even the best problem solving skills can be hampered without a deep understanding of the processes for digging past surface level information often found on the web. Participants will examine the importance of students acquiring vital digital literacy skills for better problem solving as well as implications for using these tools in a customized environment. This course will cover search and navigation, drawing conclusions and evaluation, collaboration and sharing digital footprint, and copyright.
