Literacy 2.0: Where traditional literacy and technological literacy meet.

Students in the 21st century still need to develop the reading and writing skills that were the aim of literacy 1.0 instruction. However, they must go beyond those skills and learn how to use technology

for communicating and collaborating in new ways.

Why use Technology? 

"Today's educators and K-12 students need to be information literate: to be able to locate, evaluate, use and share information. California State University notes several specific reasons for students to be information literate:

* So they can successfully navigate through proliferating information resources

* To improve their quality of education

* To learn additional tools to reinforce course content

* To enhance lifelong learning."  from Information Literacy for K-16 Settings

Keep Literacy in mind as you examine innovative applications of functions. Don’t get caught up in the tools – they constantly change.

Two questions* to ask before using a tool:

1)    What are the unique capabilities of this tool that can’t be done without using it?

2)    What can I do better instructionally than what I could do without it?
