  2. 2. As the globe is shrinking, our task as teacher preparers is to expose future teachers to successful ways to implement 21st Century thinking into the curricula. <br />Instead of seeing this as a daunting task, teachers will embrace new tools and new ways of investigating literacy instruction. One example of a new tool is the digital story. <br />

  10. 10. Multi-Modal Literacies<br />*The techniques of acquiring, organizing, evaluating, and creatively using multimodal information should become an increasingly important component of the English/Language Arts classroom. <br />NCTE 2005 Guideline<br />
  11. 11. IRA Position Statement onIntegrating Literacy and Technology in the Curriculum (2002)<br />The Internet and other forms of information and communication technology (ICT) are redefining the nature of literacy. To become fully literate in today’s world, students must become proficient in the new literacies of ICT. Therefore, literacy educators have a responsibility to integrate these technologies into their literacy curricula.<br />
  12. 12. NCTM Position Statement onThe Role of Technology in the Teaching and Learning of Mathematics (March 2008)<br />Technology is an essential tool for learning mathematics in the 21st century, and all schools must ensure that all their students have access to technology. Effective teachers maximize the potential of technology to develop students’ understanding, stimulate their interest, and increase their proficiency in mathematics. When technology is used strategically, it can provide access to mathematics for all students.<br />
  13. 13. NSTA Position Statement onThe Use of Computers in Science Education (1999)<br />Just as computers play a central role in developing and applying scientific knowledge, they can also facilitate learning of science. It is therefore the position of the National Science Teachers Association that computers should have a major role in the teaching and learning of science. Computers have become an essential classroom tool for the acquisition, analysis, presentation, and communication of data in ways which allow students to become more active participants in research and learning. <br />
  14. 14. NCSS (2006)Technology Position Statement and Guidelines<br />As an organization, we continually need to demonstrate and research how effective use of technology enhances social studies teaching and learning. The new technologies, for example, enable users to access, organize, and communicate information in ways unfathomable until recently. <br />
  15. 15. Florida Legislative Rule 6A-5.065<br />The Educator Accomplished Practices of the Florida State Board of Education<br />12) Accomplished Practice Twelve - Technology. <br />Accomplished level. The accomplished teacher uses appropriate technology in teaching and learning processes.<br />
  16. 16. Digital Literacies<br />. . . however, are here to stay—they are at the core of new literacies—and educators should consider how to best weave together old, new, and future literacies so that young people leave school literate in the ways of school and the ways of the world (O’Brien & Scharber, 2008)<br />

  18. 18. “We need to prepare students for their future, not their present.”<br />
  19. 19. “We need to prepare our children for a future that we can’t even describe.”<br />David Warlick<br />Technology Consultant & Author<br />
  20. 20. *<br />This is the first generation to be bathed in bits since birth.<br />Because of their access to the digital media, today’s students learn, work, think, shop, and create differently than their parents. <br />Don Tapscott, 1997<br />
  21. 21. “Same story, same tool”<br />“Same story, different tool”<br />“Different story, different tool”<br />Bernajean Porter<br />Technology Planner & Author<br />
