Your students will be part of a digital future. There’s no question about it. We can only assume where digital is going, but there’s one thing we’re sure of: it’s going to be everywhere. Your students should be prepared to face such a future and you have to start preparing them now.
Digital literacy is not just a buzzword. It is absolutely necessary for today’s education. But what exactly is it? Defining literacy is simple – an ability to read and write. Digital literacy is the ability to use digital tools for finding, evaluating, using, sharing, and creating content. When your students go to college, they will have to conduct research through online resources. They will be expected to write papers, create multimedia presentations, and communicate in the online environment. That’s what you need to teach them to do.
