Strengthening Digital Literacy Skills: Eight Pathways For More Student Choice

In these times of great uncertainty, practicing effective digital literacy skills is even more essential than ever. This new school environment that was thrust upon us offers educators a chance to reimagine where and when students might learn, and drive more opportunities for student choice. This session will focus on sharing resources and strategies that educators could use in a synchronous or asynchronous platform to close-out this school year. Intended audience: 6-12 Educators

Watch

Reflect

We invite educators to continue to learn and grow with these resources. Discover and collect new ideas and examples relevant to you after viewing the session video and related resources. Take notes and reflect while you view so you can customize the techniques for your own remote learning and classroom needs and adapt the strategies for your students. Let these guiding questions support your reflective practice after viewing the session and/or reviewing of session materials:

  1. Based on your expertise and experience, what do you feel students need in order to thrive in their remote learning situations?
  2. What “norms/expectations” do you have in place for your remote learning and teaching? Where do you feel you may still have gaps where clear norms and expectations may support you, students, and/or their families?
  3. Of the eight pathways, which resonate with you? How have you/ will you incorporate these into your curriculum and instruction?
