ICTI-220: Digital Literacy and Citizenship in the 6-12 Classroom



Description

The technology of today allows young adults to learn, share, and explore in exciting new ways. While digital natives regularly use technology to communicate, collaborate, and produce digital content, many are unaware of the lasting impacts of posting online or how to be a critical consumer of online information. Participants in this online technology course will evaluate current practices, research the impact of digital literacy and citizenship on students, and develop lessons focused on incorporating digital citizenship training into the 6-12 classroom.

Topics include:
  • Defining 21st century literacies
  • How digital citizenship impacts the 21st century learner
  • How to model best practices in digital and media literacy
  • Safe and appropriate technology use
  • Safe communication and collaboration in a global community
