Got Information?

ICT Literacy for the 21st Century

Information Today

Tomorrow's illiterate will not be the man who can't read; he will be the man who has not learned how to learn" -- Herbert Gerjuoy
Information and Communication Technology Literacy has become one of the most crucial skills we can teach our students. We must prepare them for an information and knowledge-based economy and global citizenship

Integrated Information Services Through The CRC

The rapidly changing nature of information and digital technologies demand that we address the need to instruct students and teachers about 21st century information and how technology has changed locating, evaluating, curating, organizing and sharing information. We also need to engage students in synthesis of information and greater creativity with information.
Aren't we doing well as a district? Our scores are great!
True, but standardized scores are a narrow slice of what students need to know and be able to do for the future. Education must be broader than an AP test score or ACT composite.
Kids use technology all the time, do they really need instruction in it?
Most definitely, true they have been raised with technology, but you cannot infer that they are digitally literate or have critical information skills. Students are more likely to be consumers of information and technology rather than innovative creators.
