Educators can learn from their peers and others by creating digital literacy curricula that encourage digital literacy as a core value, a new study says.
The digital literacy curriculum created by the Digital Education Forum is aimed at teaching students the basics of literacy, but the experts said it could be a good way to teach kids about the technology and social norms around online sharing and sharing things, as well as digital literacy skills.
The format of the curriculum is based on digital literacy: students create short, engaging stories, which can be shared with others through social media or online, or shared on other devices, and use the story to introduce students to digital literacy.
They then go on to develop digital literacy strategies that build upon the content in their stories, using technology and the Internet to expand upon the stories, the study says, and they can do this through online video and online audio courses.
The format is intended to teach students to write stories that are not just to be read, but also to be shared, said Stephanie Hensley, an associate professor of educational psychology at the University of Southern California.
The goal of the Digital Literacy Framework is to be a resource that encourages students to share their stories with the world, said Hens.
It’s a great tool for students who are not in the classroom but want to be learning about literacy, she said.
It also offers a way to create digital literacy content that is easily accessible and allows students to get access to a digital literacy toolkit that they can use to create their own digital literacy story, Hens said.
The curriculum can be used in several ways, including online, in classes or in other settings.
It can also be used as part of an online curriculum, as a teaching tool or as a tool for an audience to share and explore their digital literacy stories, Hesley said.
In the future, Hentsley said, it could expand to be used for both classroom and online learning.
The study also includes a section that is designed to help students develop digital skills.
It includes six topics that are related to digital and digital literacy, including:Using the Internet as a means of communicating: Using technology to create new stories to share with others.
Using the Web to access information: Using the Internet for personal and professional development.
Using technology to find content and stories: Using social media and the Web as a place to learn about new digital skills and content.
Creating digital content for digital learning: Using digital literacy tools, video, audio and digital content.
Using social media to create content: Using online tools, social media, and the web as a medium for sharing digital content with others and sharing their own content.
The Education Technology Council, a nonprofit that works to develop curriculum and instructional materials for education, will continue to work on developing the Digital Knowledge Framework.
It has received a grant from the National Science Foundation to develop a curriculum for use in schools, Hainsley said in a statement.
Hensley and other experts praised the Digital Learning Framework as a useful tool that can be adapted to fit any classroom setting.
The Digital Literate curriculum, for example, can be taught in a classroom or as part the curriculum of an education course, Hansley said
