How did you learn about this community?

Why would yo like to join the network?
I know digital literacy encompasses 21st-century skills related to the effective and appropriate use of technology.
It’s important to understand that even digital natives who know how to send a text and post to social media are not considered “digitally literate” by any means. Digital literacy in education encompasses so much more. For example, students must have specific skills when reading online text that may contain embedded resources such as hyperlinks, audio clips, graphs, or charts that require students to make choices. And I want to participate in this process, locally in my school, and widely joining UniteIT.
Students today are also being asked to create, collaborate, and share digital content and to do so responsibly. For these reasons, principals, school librarians, and teachers understand the importance of digital literacy skills for students and teaching digital literacy in the classroom. I strong believe uniteIT has a big role in this development.
