Students' learning experiences require them to use a range of communication skills, including the application of digital technology, and to participate in problem-solving situations.
The digital natives are ready! We have placed laptops in the hands of our seventh graders and we are amazed with what they are producing on a daily basis.
Using digital technology is fine for communications but without having the basic skills it is meaningless. Students need to get back to basics. Many studednts are using text message language within their writing instead of “regular” language. Students who use digital media will not learn to communicate correctly.
I think Facebook is blocked in most schools. This probably involves knowing how to pick reliable sources of information on the internet. It also probably includes learning how to professionally share their ideas through, and correspond with others through, academic websites.
Does this include using the internet as a form of communications such as email, facebook, or twitter?
