Digital literacy heightens student achievement

Posted on April 28, 2013 at 8:22 PM
Unbelievably, in the year 2013, there are many schools in urban and rural areas without adequate technology in the classroom. On the other hand, there are schools that spend a great deal of funding making sure schools have the latest technology for student use. Can you believe there are schools that have this equipment tucked away and locked up? In many cases, school officials fear students will “get hooked” on technology, be distracted by it, or be overwhelmed by it.In other cases, the teachers in charge of these students lack the 21st century skills necessary to incorporate technology into lesson plans. Teachers still give paper tests. They still require students “do” poster board projects. They still have students submit writing using paper and pen. 

Others still have tons of journals and notebooks on the table by their desks trying to get to them for reading and grading.What are student outcomes when technology is incorporated in the classroom?Disappointingly, many educators don’t recognize that students already have the essential digital skills required to utilize technology efficiently in the classroom. Educators take this fact for granted and miss out on opportunities to ignite teaching and learning successfully.21st century teaching and learning requires teacher to ensure all students have transformed from basic computer skills to conducting an effective Internet research. Research says, it’s time for educators to use technology in the classroom in order to get the measurable gains in academic subjects we seek.Educators who incorporate technology in lessons and project enable students to use Web 2.0 tools to analyze information, evaluate information, explore, draw conclusions, test theories, and acquire knowledge.

On the other hand, many forward thinking educators recognize the importance of digital skills to today's learners. These educators see the role of digital skills in raising achievement in reading and math as well as all other content areas.There are new Web 2.0 tools being developed and refined every day. They are made available to help prepare students for the next generation of research, assessments, and acquisition of knowledge, heightening student achievement.
