Our goal as educators is to prepare our students to face the challenges of tomorrow. These days that means ensuring they have the skills they need to succeed in our digital world. Though your students may be able to play video games and use cell phones, that doesn’t mean they have the digital literacy skills they need to be successful on online assessments, in college, or in their future career in a global economy.
In this on-demand webinar, Nettie McDonald Briggs, Senior Education Specialist for Learning.com, and Jeff Meyer, Director of Education for Learning.com, share how you can give your students a competitive edge by equipping them with digital literacy skills – starting as early as kindergarten. Briggs and Meyer:
- Explore how standards help build a comprehensive digital literacy curriculum;
- Review strategies to effectively implement curriculum;
- Offer best practices for integrating digital literacy into core area instruction.
