Digital Literacy

Digital Literacy
The goal of this document is to help students develop technology literacy skills to learn the content of the curriculum, as well as to be able to succeed and thrive in their adult lives. These skills will help them function effectively in a world where new technologies continue to emerge and information grows ever more abundant.

The teaching and learning of these skills should be integrated into the general curriculum, not taught in isolation. As students develop technology skills, they should apply these skills in their classroom, school, and life so that they will understand why these skills are important. An essential benefit of integrating the appropriate use of technology into the curriculum is that it can enhance the learning of the content without overburdening an already full curriculum.
