9781118002339: Digital Learning: Strengthening and Assessing 21st Century Skills, Grades 5-8

An essential resource for teaching and assessing student's use of technology

This comprehensive book offers a practical pathway for developing twenty-first-century skills while simultaneously strengthening content-area learning. Digital Learning contains a wealth of research-based practices to integrate the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) National Education Technology Standards (NETS) for both students and teachers. Each of the suggested project-based learning examples (in Language Arts, Mathematics, Science and Geography) can be used successfully as stand-alone units, but are even more effective when approached in a cross-disciplinary way.

  • Provides detailed descriptions of each of the NETS, how to teach them, and how to know if students are meeting them
  • Includes dozens of activities that integrate the NETS with each content area and align with Common Core standards
  • Gives clear instruction on teaching twenty-first-century skills
  • Includes a complementary DVD with video interviews and project maps to help see how students are progressing

The digital learning described in this book has been created to meet the diverse needs of students in a variety of situations.

From the Back Cover:

This essential new resource offers a practicalpathway for developing 21st century skills while simultaneously strengthening student core subject-area learning. Digital Learning shows teachers how to use research-based practices to strengthen and assess the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) National Education Technology Standards (NETS) for students and teachers. By framing instruction within the language of the ISTE NETS, the common threads of lessons become clear, regardless of subject matter.

Digital Learning includes

  • Detailed descriptions of each of the NETS, how to teach them, and how assess students to be sure they are meeting these standards

  • Dozens of activities that integrate the NETS with each content area, including Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Geography

  • A DVD with graphic organizers, supplemental material to help see how students are progressing, and video interviews with influential educators, such as Tina Rooks, and Doug Johnson

  • A dedicated website (digitallearningprocess.net) continually updated with new resources and strategies

The strategies have been created to meet the diverse needs of students in a variety of situations, and can stand alone as independent units, or be

used in a cross-disciplinary way.

Praise for Digital Learning

"If we are going to unlock the creativity of the students, we first have to unlock the creativity of the teachers. I don't think there is a way to turn students into expert learners without totally transforming the pedagogical practice. Digital Learning provides the road map and on-ramps for the required transformations of teaching and learning." —Dr. David Thornburg, director, Thornburg Center

"Our language about digital technologies is obsolete, because we talk about information technologies (which is so 1980s) and communication technologies (which is so 1990s) when, at this point in history, our media enable creation and collaboration and sharing of knowledge. This empowers active learning in the many different forms Ferdi Serim describes in this book." —Dr. Chris Dede, Timothy E. Wirth Professor in Learning Technologies, Harvard University
