Today’s learners can use a variety of technologies to access knowledge resources and interact globally with people. These interactions create a digital society that affords learners opportunities for education, entertainment and social interaction. Most of today’s children are comfortable using technology, but may not use it efficiently, effectively or appropriately. Teachers can create learning experiences that foster specific digital literacy skills. They can also help learners understand their roles and responsibilities as responsible digital citizens who can participate in the knowledge economy.

Information Literacy in the Wild
Rating

In this text, you will see information literacy examined from the perspective of students in the School of Education and the School of Information at the University of Michigan. The diversity of these perspectives contribute to new understandings and realizations as their divergent backgrounds, experiences, aspirations, and influences, both in libraries and 'in the wild', are examined in common. Their findings lend a fresh perspective to the existing body of literature on information literacy.

Movies Made Easy with Technology
Rating

Motivated by the need to integrate curricular needs in K-5 classrooms and as a result of technology budget cuts, Pleasanton Elementary School students use a variety of free software applications to produce digital media projects that address reading, writing, collaboration and technology skills. In this way, learning becomes more meaningful and relevant for students.Using free programs and Apple software included on their computers, students choose to produce a life story, poem, tutorial or personal narrative in iMovie. In this video, students collaborate with one another and explain how they have created their movies. Final projects are then uploaded into students' digital portfolios.
