Contemporary Perspectives on Literacy
Mastering Digital Literacy
Schools must prepare 21st century students to compete in a global society – a world in which cultures, economies and people are continuously connected. It is the job of the 21st century educator to make sure students are equipped to meet this challenge. In the Contemporary Perspectives on Literacy series, editor Heidi Hayes Jacobs and a team of authors from around the globe explore the three new literacies – global literacy, media literacy and digital literacy.
Mastering Digital Literacy explores the wealth of digital tools, applications and technologies that extend learning far beyond the classroom walls. This book strongly makes the case for modernising our students’ learning environment – and shows how to do it.
Using this book, F–12 educators will learn how to
- successfully merge digital media with traditional instruction,
- select video games and align them to unit plans,
- build a class website and populate it with educational features, and
- create a social network for students.
