A hot topic in education today is the definition of the term literacy. Traditionally it’s about reading and writing to communicate effectively. Is it time to expand the definition to include other types of literacy and communication overall? If so, technology is an important part of that equation.
“It really is about the learning. When you speak with tech-leading principals, they will echo that. It’s not fundamentally about the technology.

As Patrick Larkin is fond of saying: You look at the mission statement of the school, and you want to create learners for this age and you want to create citizens who are ready to be contributors in this world. If you’re doing this for the 21st century, it really does have to include this stuff.
How are you integrating technology literacy into your overall program?
