The Search for a Standards-Aligned Curriculum
Wednesday May 16, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm EDT
Presented by Nettie Briggs, Senior Education Specialist, Learning.com
Sponsored by Learning.com
Students aren’t born with digital literacy skills.
The idea of “digital natives”—that modern kids are born with digital proficiency—is a myth. If we provide students with core curriculum instruction but ignore foundational digital literacy skills, we set students up to fall short of the demands of higher education and the workforce.
With the right resources, you can successfully embed digital literacy into what you are already teaching and meet academic standards that require students to demonstrate specific digital skills—all while saving time and engaging students with technology.
Nettie Briggs, former District Instructional Technology Teacher at Klein ISD, discusses the importance of finding a standards-aligned digital literacy curriculum in relation to the ISTE, CSTA, and Common Core Standards. During this edWebinar, learn about:
- The importance of finding a standards-aligned solution
- Criteria and processes to evaluate digital literacy curricula
- Tips to incorporate technology-infused projects into core subject-area standards
Elementary and middle school level teachers, technology coordinators, library media specialists, and school administrators will benefit from watching this recorded session. Explore how to search for a standards-aligned curriculum to help prepare your students for college and career success!
