In many school districts today, digital literacy – and technology skills more generally – are not being systematically taught; but digital literacy skills are vital to cultivating future-ready students.
To better prepare students with these skills and advance elementary and middle school technology curriculum – so it helps students become digitally literate – standards, online assessments, and various initiatives have been developed.
In this on-demand webinar, Jeff Meyer, Director of Education from Learning.com, dives into the variety of ways digital literacy and technology skills can be easily integrated into core instruction to help schools meet the expectations of these. Meyer covers:
