- Stop integrating technology and start integrating literacy
- Literacy today is not simply about reading, writing, and mathematics but about investigating those subjects in an digital environment
- This investigation can include URL backtracking, large dataset investigation, multimedia communication, and a growing list of others
- We are all competing for attention - students must learn to attract attention with their innovative and creative ideas
I have been following David Warlick ever since his keynote speech at the 2006 K-12 online conference. He was absolutely correct then... and he continues to make a compelling case that we are behind - my question is when is our country and our schools going to "get with it" and make the changes that are necessary? It is unfair to our students and to their future to educate them for our fathers future.
We need to redefine literacy - thank you David Warlick.
