Improve your student’s digital learning and literacy skills
To develop the 21st century skills every student needs, they must access new digital learning models that not only enhance their learning experience, but also guide them along the path to becoming effective digital citizens.
We’ve partnered with award-winning educator, Detra Price-Dennis and the top-ranked Teachers College, Columbia University, to build digital literacy training for educators.
By taking this course, K-8 teachers will be prepared to develop their own digital literacy skills, as well as those of their students. With an emphasis on current theory and research in digital learning as it applies to the K-8 classroom, teachers in this course will refresh and expand their understanding of digital literacies. They will also learn the practical strategies they need to be successful educators in the 21st century classroom.
On completing the course, teachers will not only be able to evaluate digital tools and technology and their relevancy in the K-8 classroom, they will also know how and when to incorporate digital tools and technology into their curriculum in useful and creative ways. Finally, teachers will learn how to build lesson plans that increase students’ digital literacy and ability to succeed in the global digital community.
