Catch of the Day - Digital Literacy Toolkit - 21 Jan 10

The Digital Literacy: Skills for the 21st Century Toolkit is the catch of this day


The Digital Literacy: Skills for the 21st Century Toolkit has developed from the premise that multimedia authoring must be taught as a skill in the same way that traditional writing is taught. Even though most teachers and students have become familiar with the technical skills required to use images in multimedia productions, they lack the critical idiom to determine whether an image or sound is appropriately used.

The Digital Literacy: Skills for the 21st Century web site has been developed to address the lack of comprehensive, established approach to guide the teaching, learning, and assessment of specific digital literacy skills.

The Digital Literacy: Skills for the 21st Century Toolkit is a set of resources that teachers can access and use without the need for any special training. The site not only presents each activity with explanatory text but also provides a rationale and a clarification for the overall process of instruction in digital literacy.

What a great resource! Thanks for sharing it. I like how each activity is explained and supported. I can't wait to look at the other "Catch of Day" posts!

This looks like an amazing tool! Creative presentation abilities like this are vital job skills now and in the future, and as you suggest, it is important for us to remember that students must be directly taught those skills.

I guess I haven't visisted this site in a while, I had no idea that they had activities for students to practice the different skills. These skills are becoming more and more vital, it is great to have resources to help us teach them!
