Preparing 21st Century Students
Fostering Digital Literacy
Our digital literacy curriculum is based on a framework that includes eight key components that serve as a foundation for digitally literate students. To be digitally literate, students must possess skills in the following areas: functional meaning making, effective online communication, digital collaboration, critical thinking about technology use, digital creativity, finding and selecting information online, cultural and social understanding related to technology, and e-safety.
