  • These objectives are agreed upon between and LPS.Key points:Digital lit skills for teachers and students—21st century college and careers, digital lifestyle, SmarterBalanced/PARCC assessments require skillsLincoln MS students participate in the Rhode Island state assessment project (using 21CSA)—you might want to review a quick sample test/report, available at --this is what students are expected to know by time they enter high school.Common core assessment: sample assessment items that include digital literacy skills can be found at A sample journal that meets the objectives and can be used as a model for a deliverable is the “Fitness Journal”—this item has been assigned to your Easy-Tech class in your Lincoln educator account. It is the last item in a unit on Graphing in Spreadsheets
  • Make sure participants know what they need to accomplish. For #2—they can work individually, pairs, or small groups. They need to develop something meaningful that they intend to teach this coming school year and that they feel comfortable sharing within the digital learning environment. Consider modeling a keyword search for user-generated content – talk about good lessons and not-so-good. Participants will likely need at least 1 ½ hours to complete #2, including sharing, evals, closure and q/a—watch your time
  • NETS-S standards available at standards available at you want to show a sample of the MS assessment that Lincoln MS students take, it is available at (click on “Sample Assessments” link)STE's NETS for Students (NETS•S) are the standards for evaluating the skills and knowledge students need to learn effectively and live productively in an increasingly global and digital world. Simply being able to use technology is no longer enough. Today's 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.
  • Consider previewing EasyTech content from a student perspective through your EasyTech class. EasyTech is available K-8 (not at high school, so make sure to stress to high school folks that we want them to know what skills we want kids to show up with in 9th grade and EasyTech is the online digital literacy skills curriculum that is intended to help get them there). Regardless of whether they are using EasyTech or not, knowing the “three-step” is necessary for any digital learning object to be assigned—including the journal, activity, or weblink to be created in the session later. Provide the Set Up Quick Start Guide here.
  • Use the digital learning environment and demonstrate how to search by a category (ELA, math, etc…); then, search by keyword. Make sure participants understand how to distinguish between licensed content, free content, user-generated content, and for-fee content. This might also be the place to show the District curriculum section. Journals, activities, and weblinks created today will be curated in the district curriculum section for easy sharing; participants can also share their work by searching by keywords for the journal, activity, and weblink.Demonstrate how to create a journal. As you demo how to create a journal, make sure to stress that activities are almost identical (except there is no comments box and students usually print out activities while completing journals online). You might be sure you know how to embed video code from YouTube or Teacher Tube. You might also demonstrate how to insert a weblink (make sure to open all web content in a new browser window)Resources to review or direct participants to: ( Resources site—click on platform button)-Creating weblink, activity, journal tutorials:
  • Give participants at least one hour. Make sure they understand their project. They will be expected to briefly share their work with their peers in the session. Ask them to identify what essential question/project/standard they address, grade level. If you can, have them demo their journal, activity or weblink
  • Evaluation—make sure to provide your name and that participants choose the “Onsite Training Survey” link (NOT the “Online Training Survey” link).If you havent’ show resources page, (especially provided 800.580.4640 support number) do so nowFinish by noting things learned today, things to remember ( “three-step”, EasyTech, creating user content), and questions/answers.Celebrate your success! Glass of wine, anyone?!
