Overview

As an educator, you no doubt understand the need to be literate, but do you know what it means to be "digitally literate"? Do you consider yourself digitally literate? Join Dr. Howie DiBlasi as he provides an explanation of digital literacy skills - what they are and why educators must foster and encourage them in their classrooms. He will explore why digital literacy is a critical skill set to develop, and show how the skills and competencies for digital literacy and media literacy are closely related to each other and to additional 21st-century skills that are needed for living and working in technology- and information-rich societies. Learn how being digitally literate provides us with essential skills for playing, learning and working as citizens of the digital world.

This was a good overview of digital literacy. I was reminded of search engines I use to use but have fallen in to the Google routine. Thank you for this. I will not give some thought into how to work with the teachers in my schools to incorporate digital literacy skill into the elementary classroom.
