Beyond Technology to The New Literacy
Presented by Ted McCain & Ian Jukes
The world has changed. Today, we are operating under a completely different set of rules that have turned many of our assumptions about learning upside down. What does it really mean to be literate in an age of computers, networks, electronic mail, multimedia communications and Internet publishing? What are the new basics that all students need to have in an electronic age? This presentation examines several faulty assumptions related to the impact of technology on learning and outlines how we can move beyond technology to the new literacy by changing the focus from LOTS (lower order thinking skills and lots of information) to HOTS (higher order thinking skills). For teachers, coordinators and administrators who are struggling to address issues related to state standards, curriculum and technological integration, this presentation is for you.
