This WordPress.com site is the bee's knees

Very interesting video about kids learning to code, and what 2030 will look like…Very thoughtful! It talks about how teachers can be experts in an area, but kids can Google what we say and they become the experts. So….why not let them be the experts and explain things to us?  I put this link on the links page also.

What is Digital Literacy?

Okay…Let’s start with this. Once we define digital literacy, we can discuss the best ways to improve in this area and to understand it more fully and therefore help us to educate our students, right? Wikipedia says it “is the ability to locate, organize, understand, evaluate, and create information using digital technology” or “the ability to effectively and critically navigate, evaluate and create information using a range of digital technologies.”

Soooo, does this just mean being able to use the internet and all of its tools, or does it mean using all different tools, like cell phones, iPads, eReaders, etc.?
