  • mrsdkrebs Denise Krebs at Denise Krebs Silvia,
    I would love to be at your presentation at Rowan University today to hear you speak about critical literacy. I also enjoyed Chic's comment above.

    I am trying to give students opportunity to upgrade and amplify their literacy, yet I feel I have so much to learn from you and others, like Chic, who commented above.

    I'm including the URL to our class blog. http://krebs.edublogs.org/ I hope I am giving students opportunities to upgrade and amplify through their blogging.

    With appreciation for your work,
    Denise

  • chicfoote Chic Foote Silvia this is very timely. I have been working with a number of schools to complete curriculum reviews as the school year comes to an end here in NZ. Your question 'Is traditional reading and writing enough to be considered literate in the 21st Century?' is one that I have been asking teachers to consider in the process. You once again lay out the challenge so clearly....providing a rich scaffold for school teams and individual teachers to reflect on and reconsider how they think about reading and writing for our learners today. I believe the shift comes when they are able to make the connection between effective strategies for learning and digital literacy. Rather than the use of the tools it is the learning focus that is the starting point for the shift in thinking. In our NZ curriculum the identified strands of literacy are listening,reading,viewing and speaking, writing,presenting. We focus on these in order for our students to be able to effectively communicate. If we consider how we most effectively communicate in today's world, it is clear that we must upgrade the ways in which we engage our students in learning and applying these skills. When schools and teachers are able to shift thinking from 'digital tools' to learning in the most relevant context, then they begin to amplify their strategies for implementing an effective, relevant curriculum for today's 21st C learners. This is a journey for us all in this ever changing world. My 'aha' moment was the day I moved my focus from the tool to the learning and then considered how I could most effectively facilitate the learning in ways that were current and relevant for the students, what I needed to know in order to do this and how I could amplify my own skills in order to become more relevant in the lives of the learner. Thank you for all that you do to challenge thinking and support the shifts that must be made in order for us all to stay relevant in our students learning journey. 1 year ago
