  5. 5. • Begin with a course you currently teach. • How might you incorporate digital literacy into your class? • Not sure? Ask a librarian! • Consider digital projects for assessment CC-Public Domain
  6. 6. Technology should be value-added, not an “add-on” Learning Objectives Digital Technology Students’ prior experience, knowledge and skills CC-Public Domain
  7. 7. Critical engagement with a few digital technologies and theories • provides an opportunity for students to apply disciplinary epistemologies to novel situations • extends understanding of content • builds transferrable skills Go deep, just as you do with your subject matter. CC-Public

  9. 9. Your course and the digital skills/concepts students learn into the fabric of your department, college, and the consortium. CC-Public Domain
  10. 10. 1. Start with what you know. 2. Let your teaching drive your technology. 3. Teach a few things well. 4. Scaffold everything. 5. Integrate. 1 2 3 4 5
