    4. 4.  Simply being able to use technology is no longer enough. http://www.flickr.com/photos/eurleif/255241547/ http://www.flickr.com/photos/chu/3570679351/
    5. 5. Todays students need to be able to use technology to analyze, learn, and explore. Digital age skills are vital for preparing students to work, live, and contribute to the social and civic fabric of their communities. http://www.flickr.com/photos/56155476@N08/5313518133/ http://www.flickr.com/photos/23766596@N04/2262340001/
    6. 6.  Communities expect their graduates to be ready to thrive in the Digital Age, but the 21st century skills required for such success are not well defined.http://www.capsulecomputers.com.au/wp-content/uploads/Digital-Age.jpg
    7. 7.  Without 21st century skills, students are being prepared to succeed in yesterday’s world - not tomorrow’s. http://www.flickr.com/photos/caroslines/2254480335/ http://www.flickr.com/photos/williamcromar/5009739079/
    8. 8.  Schools and teachers work incredibly hard to keep pace with rapid technology, research, and societal changes.http://www.flickr.com/photos/lukeypru/3847213583/http://www.flickr.com/photos/n-ino/27108527/http://www.flickr.com/photos/katerha/5621362129/http://www.flickr.com/photos/owleyes_/7342801222/http://www.flickr.com/photos/23744134@N08/7297569348/
    9. 9. Brought Group Together Review of Literature Definition Identify areas for development of standards Develop a model for development of standards
    10. 10.  The goal of digital literacy standards is to identify ways in which technology can be used to enhance and support student learning.http://beta.images.theglobeandmail.com/432/incoming/article820020.ece/ALTERNATES/w620/gmat+-+istock+-+1500x844http://www.flickr.com/photos/jasonwstanley/7289041692/

    20. 20. BC’s Digital Literacy StandardsThe following grid contains links to samples of lessons and class activities that demonstrate BC’s digital literacystandards in real-life settings. As students become more familiar with digital technologies, their ability to demonstrate the standards becomes more sophisticated.
