Illiteracy in the 21st Century

As someone who has always been comfortable with technology, and spend much of my time navigating the digital world, I would consider myself a (mostly) literate educator. Many teachers may hear that term and say the same for themselves, but what it means to be literate today has changed. If we truly want to prepare our students for the future, we need to rethink what literacy skills are. And if we need to teach those skills, we need to know those skills and use them.

    Yes! I am so lucky to have had the opportunity to take a technology elective with Michelle Hagerman (https://mschirahagerman.com/blog/) in my B.Ed. Thanks for sharing, Melissa!
