Digital Literacy Framework for Common Core (Aug 2013)


Published on

These are presentation slides for Dr. Wesley Fryer's presentation in Wells, Maine, on August 28, 2013. Digital literacy today means much more than searching the Internet and using Microsoft Office. To be digitally literate, teachers as well as students need to be able to create and share online a variety of different multimedia products. These media products can be “mapped” to your curriculum, and if you’re in a Common Core state in the United States, to the Common Core State Standards. Interactive Writing, Narrated Art, 5 Photo Stories, Narrated Slideshows, Screencasts, Quick Edit Videos, and eBooks are a few of the media products learners should be able to create and safely share online. In this session, we’ll view different examples of student media products and learn about tools and strategies for helping teachers become digitally literate as “media mappers.” We’ll also explore how librarians and instructional coaches can use the “Mapping Media to the Curriculum” website as a roadmap to help teachers and students create media products as assignments for class and as artifacts in digital portfolios.

  13. 13. It starts in kindergarten: “With prompting and support, describe the relationship between illustrations and the text in which they appear (e.g., what person, place thing, or idea in the text an illustration depicts).” In 4th grade it becomes: “Integrate information presented in different media or formats (e.g., visually, quantitatively) as well as in words to develop a coherent understanding of a topic or issue.” In 8th grade students must: “Evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of using different mediums (e.g., print or digital text, video, multimedia) to present a particular topic or idea” And in 12th grade students must: “Integrate and evaluate multiple sources of information presented in different media or formats (e.g., visually, quantitatively) as well as in words in order to address a question or a problem.” Wood, Joe.“Digital Writing & Common Core.” JoeWoodOnline, November 15, 2011.

  25. 25. time to RECLAIM creativity in the classroom Creativity
  26. 26. I know from watching and listening all over the country in schools and in workshops, however, that many educators have become less creative, more timid and unimaginative, and have indeed lost pride in their work in the face of how heavy-handed the states have been in promulgating this retro and harmful “accountability”.Why is not the state responsible for ensuring that the incentives are right and the resources are available to do the work well? States should have to be accountable for how local leaders interpre their mandates. But states wash their hands of the problem of change; they merely issue mandates. So, teachers become brow-beaten by scores, encouraged to do test prep, and in general, down the authority line, to teach worse rather than better – somehow in the name of “standards.”
