What is eLiteracy?
Some Emerging Models
Teachers have requested tools, resources and curriculum to help teachers and students develop critical thinking about technology in the 21st Century. This eLiteracy portal is one response from the SCCOE to those requests. eLiteracy focuses on trends, pressures, and evolutions shaping the future of education in all its forms, with particular consideration of the role of educational technologies in creating that future.
Resources, Tools and Training
"There is a major difference between technological competence and technological literacy. Literacy is what everyone needs. Competence is what a few people need in order to do a job or make a living. And we need both."
"Learning which buttons to push is no substitute for the ability to evaluate."
--Miguel Aznar, Technology Challenged: Understanding Our Creations & Choosing Our Future.
IMSA 21st Century Information Fluency Project presents a Digital Information Fluency Model, with
- What information am I looking for?
- Where will I find the information?
- How will I get there?
- How good is the information?
- How will I ethically use the information?
This model identifies core competencies, and contains a lot of supplemental information, including a power searching workshop, and IMSA Full Circle Resource Kit, a new practical resource for digital searching, evaluation and ethical use.
