As stated by Paul Gilster “Digital Literacy is the ability to understand information and -more importantly- to evaluate and integrate information in multiple formats that the computer can deliver. Being able to evaluate and interpret information is critical […] you can’t understand information you find on the internet without evaluating its sources and placing it in context.” (https://cleach.wordpress.com)
I believe our obligation to our students is to teach them the learning techniques of technology, not just the games and social media, that almost every child is very familiar with. We also need to instruct them on what sites to avoid and what sites can be the most helpful in learning and informational. Which I, myself am still learning. Because lets face it, today, almost every child has some type of digital device. Us as adults need to be more informative on what sites our children are involved in.Technology is changing so rapidly and new information is added on a daily basis.
