Many employers today are looking for new employees who are digitally literate; however, just because many of our teens and young adults have been immersed in computers, the Internet, video games and other digital technologies, it does not mean they are digitally literate. It is becoming increasingly important that educators and schools help students become digitally literate so that they can succeed and thrive in an era of digital information and communication.

Join Jerry Swiatek as he briefly explains what is meant by being digitally literate and why it's so important. In addition to listing some of the basic technology skills and concepts students should know, Jerry will address using a variety of digital tools in the classroom. He will also explore various activities that you could use to incorporate and teach digital competencies such as Internet search literacy, ethical social media use, effective digital communication, and more!

The webinar was held two years ago. Still, it is thought-provoking in the sense that we feel the need to adapt our practices to this continuously changing landscape in the digital era. The resources are great and I think that the demand for a more digitally skilled workforce and for more creativity is increasing. Thank you for this insightful presentation.

Great webinar.
Very pragmatic and insightful.
This was an amazing webinar that provided me with the resources my 8th grade students are looking for when trying to be prepared for college/job opportunities in technology! I plan to add the option to my grade 8 curriculum for them to choose a certificate program as their final project. Thank you so much!
