Skills for Digital Age Learners

Welcome to Skills for Digital Age Learners!

This course focuses on Informational Literacy and Media Literacy. We also focus on the development of the 4C's of 21st Century Skills - Creativity, Collaboration, Communication, and Critical Thinking. These skills reflect the specific demands of our competitive, technology-driven economy and society.


WHAT IS Informational Literacy?

“A set of skills needed to find, retrieve, analyze, and use information."

While many middle schoolers may be media-savvy, most are not necessarily digitally literate. The first and second marking period of this course will focus on providing seventh graders with opportunities to effectively use information technologies to find and manage information, and to critically evaluate and ethically apply that information to solve a problem. Topics of exploration include: Learning Balance, Online Safety & Security, Online Privacy, Digital Law, and Searching the Web.

WHAT IS Media Literacy?

“The ability to access, analyze, evaluate, and create media in a variety of forms.."

The first and second marking period of this course will focus on providing eighth graders with opportunities to effectively evaluate and create media without plagiarizing. Topics of exploration include: Living in a Participatory Culture, Seeing Stereotypes, Visual Literacy, Sexting, What's News?, and Positive Participation.
