Course Description

Learn how to characterize 21st Century Literacy Skills. Use methods to incorporate information literacy skills in classroom activities in which students learn to access, evaluate, use, and integrate information and ideas found in print, media, and digital resources. This process enables them to function in a knowledge-based and technology-oriented society. Course content considers multimedia literacy, techniques to help students synthesize expository text (online and offline), and research on technology use in the classroom. Students review the critical aspects of multiple digital literacies for 21st century skills necessary for success in today's global economy.
