Digital LIteracy: What is it and how can we embrace it?
In 2016, there is a massive discrepancy in the Digital and Web Literacy abilities of our students, teachers, parents and educational leaders.Technology can be used in ways to encourage and discourage learning. What distinguishes digital and web literacy in education from just using technology, is the focus on learning. The decision to "use" or "not use" technology is part of digital and web literacy as well - as we consider how to best meets the needs and wants of our learners.

We will then work together to create a collection of Digital and Web Literacy resources.
