  42. Chris Fisher chiming in from Missouri City, TX...teacher of aquatic science #txeduchat
  43. A1: for some it means understanding impact of digital sources on academic learning. For others it's just a popular catchphrase #txeduchat
  44. A1: It means using your digital voice, listening to other digital voices, and learning through it all #txeduchat
  45. @MelissaJonesIC While I agree it should be permeated through everything we do, not sure whether we all have the skill set! #txeduchat

  68. A1: When I think of digital literacy, I think of how we can guide our Ss w/ becoming excellent digital citizens. #txeduchat
  69. A1: one branch of effective digital literacy demands we be concise (you know, to the point of 140 chars) with complex ideas #txeduchat
  70. Yes! Giving opportunities means chances for failing, which translates to to learning! Not always perfect #txeduchat @mcnairan3
  71. A1: Understanding safety, digital citizenship, online tools, programs, apps, coding, reference searching, questioning skills #txeduchat
  72. Digital Literacy is having full command of current electronic technology available for communication, learning work and play. #txeduchat
  73. #txeduchat A1 Digital literacy in the classroom means using #edtech for a pedagogical purpose.. Safely, respectfully, transparently.
  74. a1 there is so much more to dig literacy that just text #txeduchat
  75. #txeduchat A1: Digital literacy affords individuals the ability to navigate online safely and effectively
  76. A1: Digital literacy means knowing how to safely find and use the digital tools and resources that will enhance learning. #txeduchat
  77. A1 - Dig. Lit - ability to use tech strategically to evaluate information, connect w/ others, & collaborate, to achieve goals. #TXeduchat
  78. A1. Digital literacy is something we are moving toward at a rapid rate. #txeduchat
  79. @Techy_Margaret So true...teaching Ss to fail forward is so important.If we aren't failing at some point,are we really learning? #txeduchat
  80. A1: Digital literacy includes the skills and awareness of networks that connect people. #txeduchat
  81. Is there a difference between digital literacy and digital citizenship? #txeduchat
  82. #txeduchat A:1 Ss having the flexibility to effectively use digital tech for a variety of purposes, both educational and personal.
  83. A1: navigating digital roads and increasing a positive digital footprint. #txeduchat
  84. Q2: How can digital literacy promote higher order thinking? Examples? #txeduchat
  85. @mcnairan3 @Techy_Margaret We need a new word for that... Can we say learning rather than failing? #txeduchat
  86. -->>>RT @drshaunamayo: Q2: How can digital literacy promote higher order thinking? Examples? #txeduchat
  87. -->RT @drshaunamayo: Q2: How can digital literacy promote higher order thinking? Examples? #txeduchat
  88. #txeduchat A1 Kiddo's school locks #Mobile devices down pretty tight. Ignoring #edtech doesn't nurture learning to use it respectfully.
  89. a1 digital literacy is trying to keep up with a Twitter chat! #txeduchat
  90. RT @drshaunamayo: Q2: How can digital literacy promote higher order thinking? Examples? #txeduchat
  91. @d_mulder #Txeduchat AND creating projects that teach emotional as well as intellectual skills. Give Ss a chance 2 practice in RL settings.
  92. @cdsmeaton Can you be digitally literate and not be a good digital citizen? Yes, just like with literacy and citizenship. #txeduchat
  93. @cdsmeaton yes. Digital literacy is a global term for learning with digital tools #txeduchat
  94. @cdsmeaton digital literacy is like having the power and digital citizenship is using your power for good, not evil #txeduchat
  95. A2: DL can promote higher order thinking by having Ss applying tools correctly, exploring tool/resources, and creating new ones. #txeduchat
  96. @cdsmeaton I think so. Digital literacy allows one to be an active participant in creating good digital citizens. #txeduchat
  97. DL cannot simply promote higher order thinking. Pedagogy does that. You can be high order thinking w/ no tech or vise versa #txeduchat
  98. A2: Gave Ss the ability to express higher thinking than previously before. #txeduchat
  99. A2: Letting students get past examination and to production stages. Blogging and PBL are good examples. #txeduchat
  100. I think we must be good digital citizens to be truly digitally literate. How to interact is critical! #txeduchat @drshaunamayo @cdsmeaton
  101. A2 Ss can use Tech as a tool to help them learn and understand concepts. Increase Ss engagement #txeduchat
  102. A2: Frankly, much “tech integration” doesn’t promote higher order thinking. There is a lot of substitution of tech for non-tech. #txeduchat
  103. @cdsmeaton I think Dig. Citizenship is part of Digital Literacy...just my opinion. #txeduchat
  104. A2: using digital tools to analyze content and then recreate and synthesize (touchcast, chatterpix, Daqri) #txeduchat
  105. A2 Digital literacy allows Ss more choices to go deeper in their learning. Info always at accessible & collaboration easier #txeduchat
  106. A2: Just using technology doesn’t ensure that ANY learning is happening, let alone higher-order thinking! #txeduchat
  107. @drshaunamayo A2 being able to explain what you know in text or video shows how much they really understand #txeduchat
  108. A2) DL allows students to be in charge of their own learning. They can connect to the outside world. #txeduchat
  109. @drshaunamayo @txeduchat A1: Dig-Lit in classrm includes critical thinking & creativity. Ts & Ss know how to navigate info on Web #txeduchat
  110. #txeduchat A2 Devices don't just leverage information consumption. They enable students to #make stuff demo'ing learning.
  111. A2 Students have to filter information weeding the good from bad. They then create products such as Powtoon, Podcasts, & How tos #txeduchat
  112. A2: #diglit req Ss to problem solve in order to find info > leads to new Qs > new solutions > must try & apply #txeduchat
  113. @jodiharris16 Does the "publishing" aspect of blogging openly make a difference to Ss in your opinion? #txeduchat
  114. A2: Ss are given the skills through digital literacy to be self-directed & self-determined learners. #txeduchat
  115. A2: Digital literacy promotes higher order thinking in Ts by demanding meaningful pedagogical purpose when integrating #edtech #txeduchat
  116. A2: Using it for creation not a glorified worksheet as some apps have. Lots of choice in creation leads to amazing learning. #txeduchat
  117. #txeduchat Belinda Beuerlein - ESL from Plano - in & out tonight, lurking, trying to understand digital literacy more fully. #txedchat
  118. A2: the educational landscape has changed. That in itself, requires higher order thinking. Add edu-tech and it becomes critical #txeduchat
  119. @d_mulder There you go again! BAM! You ARE on fire tonight! I'm just going to say "ditto" to all of your tweets! #txeduchat
  120. @teachintechgal @cdsmeaton Digital citizenship is about respecting each other in cyberspace as we use these tools. #txeduchat
  121. A2: create and evaluate! Find resources, evaluate and then create work that shows the learning - NOT substitute for worksheets #txeduchat
  122. A2: digital lit can promote HOT as long as it is just not substitution - think #SAMR #txeduchat
  123. #TXeduchat Mustn't make mistake of thinking digital=just tech skills. Humans=feeling beings whose emotional muscles need development too.
  124. RT @MarthaJPreston: digital literacy is like having the power & digital citizenship is using your power for good, not evil #txeduchat #hs4
  125. @Tom_Kilgore It does for my personal students. They know they have a global audience. They beg to edit. That never happens. #txeduchat
  126. A2 Love that the Twitter App now allows for 30 seconds of video! #txeduchat
  127. A2: My Ss blog in order to reflect using higher level thinking skills. You can check out our blogs here,  http://bit.ly/1FLV7xB . #txeduchat
  128. A2: Digital sources have to be evaluated for their usefulness and if it doesn't work students have to create something that does #txeduchat
  129. A2: This is a real problem in the classroom. Many educators don't get what Dig. Lit. is beyond using Google or citing sources #txeduchat
  130. A2: Having students examine online content for validity. Not everything out there is "true"! #txeduchat
  131. Yes! Not just tech for tech's sake..or to get that box checked off on evaluation, but real purposeful use! #txeduchat @aaron_hogan
  132. A2: App smashing allows Ss 2 synthesize info creatively. It's a reflection of what they've learned showcased in their own terms. #txeduchat
  133. A2: Making a digital poster that demonstrates understanding and can be used as a resource and shared with others. #txeduchat
  134. A2: Providing Ss choice of medium then asking them to consider McLuhan's "The Medium is The Message" often provides great stretch #txeduchat
  135. @Tom_Kilgore @jodiharris16 #txeduchat I think it means a great deal to be "published" no matter child or adult.
  136. A2: Because it allows students to be able to create, design, imagine, construct, plan and invent! All on the top end of blooms! #txeduchat
  137. Remember that you can grow your Professional Learning Network by following others in the chat tonight! #txeduchat
  138. A2: Depends on your definition of digital literacy - if viewing as understanding tools not much, but as growth mindset tool... #txeduchat
  139. Let’s stop talking about “digital citizenship.” It’s 2015…it’s ALL “citizenship.” #txeduchat
  140. #txeduchat a2 promotes collaboration, and problem solving globally, cant get much higher than that
  141. Don't worry if the chat is moving fast. We archive the chat every week for you and post it here:  http://txeduchat.com  #txeduchat
  142. A2 - Ss use digital tools as a way to create products that show their understanding. These products can easily be shared. #TXeduchat
  143. @d_mulder so many facets to digi-lit teaching one part is just the first step. The more you learn the more transparent it becomes #txeduchat
  144. Your comments and resources are fantastic. Keep them coming. Q3 in 1 minute. #txeduchat
  145. A2: I don't know if digital literacy promotes higher order thinking but the 4 C's sure do and so does reflection! #txeduchat
  146. Q2: DL promotes higher order thinking when Ss must eval their choices of tech tools. #txeduchat
  147. Driven by external forces = expediency, superficiality. Guided by intrinsic motivators = true learning. #iaedchat #okaled #sced #txeduchat
  148. .@iteachjava Tweets help Ss summarize thoughts...I never thought of it that way...You are totally right!😊 @3rdGrLDRS #txeduchat
  149. A2: The 4 C's = Communication, Collaboration, Critical Thinking, & Creativity. #txeduchat
  150. #txeduchat A2 Higher order of thinking can occur with collaboration. Collaboration can occur digitally.
  151. A2: Allowing many correct answers forces Ss to defend their choices rather than luck out and find the right one. #txeduchat
  152. @MonicaSimonds Good point. There's much learning in the process and in showing others how they create #txeduchat
  153. Q3: How do you explain digital literacy to Ps and stakeholders? What has the response been? #txeduchat
  154. A2 Digital tools make way for more time for Ss & Ts to focus on the creative act at a high-level-original 3-D arch. renderings #txeduchat
  155. YES--->RT @MrsJones_Merton: A2: The 4 C's = Communication, Collaboration, Critical Thinking, & Creativity. #txeduchat
  156. A great Twitter chat happening right now by @txeduchat + @drshaunamayo about Digital Literacy! #txeduchat
  157. @Tom_Kilgore @jodiharris16 yes, very powerful positive model for Ss and families #txeduchat Just learned & excited to share more!
  158. @martysnowpaw @jodiharris16 Definitely! Just interested in how folks report Ss respond when their audience is the world! #txeduchat
  159. @Tom_Kilgore @jodiharris16 #TXeduchat Yes especially if effort is made 2 connect 2 others so Ss see their voices reach & impact others.
  160. These are very important ! @MrsJones_Merton: A2: The 4 C's = Communication, Collaboration, Critical Thinking, & Creativity. #txeduchat
  161. -->RT @drshaunamayo: Q3: How do you explain digital literacy to Ps and stakeholders? What has the response been? #txeduchat
  162. A2: The digital world is built to listen to justifications and opinions...doesn't get much higher than that! #txeduchat
  163. A3) Showing them how helps. Screencasts and showcase of student work. #txeduchat
  164. Kinder Tchr @jenorr has Ss compose a class tweet to summarize the day, what they did and learned #txeduchat @TCHRMeg @iteachjava @3rdGrLDRS
  165. @MrsJones_Merton Love when we talk about the 4 Cs. Won't get there with predominately cemetery seating in classrooms. #txeduchat
  166. A3: Coming alongside stakeholders to teach digital literacy as a means to gain helpful school insight has worked well. #txeduchat
  167. A2: Helping Ss evaluate their online presence (Dig. tattoo - footprint) is an example of higher order thinking. #txeduchat
  168. A3 I do this with the Ss to Ps. We can work at the same time instant feedback. Talk to experts for PBL instantly Ps buy in #txeduchat
  169. A2: It allows them the tools to be able to create, design, present and explore ideas at that higher level. #txeduchat
  170. --->>>RT @drshaunamayo: Q3: How do you explain digital literacy to Ps and stakeholders? What has the response been? #txeduchat
  171. #txeduchat a3 not so much about digital literacy, but necessity it is a brand new world.
  172. Jeff Johnson Alberta, Canada joining late - I do PD work with school leaders. #txeduchat
  173. RT @Tom_Kilgore: -->RT @drshaunamayo: Q3: How do you explain digital literacy to Ps and stakeholders? What has the response been? #txeduchat
  174. @drshaunamayo @txeduchat A2: DL helps Ss not only solve known problems but also find new problems. #txeduchat
  175. @drshaunamayo #txeduchat was already trying to do that in the 60's & all we trying to do was introduce TV & movies. Read Neal Postman
  176. A3 Tough one. When you have Ps that don't embrace technology, they don't think Ss necessarily need it. Don't understand need #txeduchat
  177. A3: I’m not sure we need to have such a distinction between “digital literacy” and “literacy.” How do you explain literacy? #txeduchat
  178. All these resources and thoughts make me still why there is not a dig lit component for TX graduation. Really? #txeduchat
  179. A3: Und #diglit is tuff 4 Ps; most look at Ss as digital natives; believe must kno everything. But in is growing quickly #txeduchat
  180. #txeduchat A3 P hat on.. DL isn't explained. It's experienced. Show me my kid can make it as an adult (critical thinker).
  181. A3: Digital literacy is not an end unto itself, but a language to teach and speak. It opens the door to many conversations. #txeduchat
  182. @drshaunamayo A3 When you can have a f2f with parents, it is common sense. Need time bc its foreign from their experience. #txeduchat
  183. A3: Is “digital literacy” really all that different than “literacy” in general? What is literacy? Being able to communicate well? #txeduchat
  184. A2: By using digital resources to create, work with peers, and communicate with experts in the field. #txeduchat
  185. Digital showcase. Let Ss show what they know to the Ps. #txeduchat
  186. A3: I don't think we have done a good job w/this...Ps & community still see it as a toy or incentive...not as the new pencil #txeduchat
  187. @d_mulder Digital tools can help maximize the effort for higher order thinking. #txeduchat
  188. A3: Show them don't tell them. Show classroom twitter page, talk about GHO's, make video classroom newsletter. #txeduchat
  189. @drshaunamayo A3 see those direction you read to do something, that is digital literacy #txeduchat
  190. A3: I use the 4 C's + 1R (reflection) to explain the importance of digital literacy parents and stakeholders. So important! #txeduchat
  191. A3: Student & Parent home connectivity survey is key at boy. Helps you know how to adapt. #txeduchat
  192. Ps that don't understand Tech still know the importance of the Digital World. Ss need to be able to adapt in the future each day #txeduchat
  193. A3 as an educator it's my obligation to embed digital literacy into our learning, and so far, Ps and admin are on board #txeduchat
  194. @d_mulder It is about communication. But we have to teach Ss how to be effective communicators. Agree??? #txeduchat
  195. "@craigyen: A3) How about parent / student tech parties!!! #txeduchat" Love it! You ever done this?
  196. @d_mulder glad it's not just me (as a former English teacher) who thinks this #txeduchat
  197. A3: Involve Ps, give access to Remind messaging, send videos explaining and showing student work, sharing student work on a blog. #txeduchat
  198. A3: Show them that being a connected clsrm is not only keeping up w/ Ss in the 21st century but also much more fun & engaging! #txeduchat
  199. #Txeduchat Best way 2reach P is by showing them what kids have created with the digital tools. Don't showcase the tools, show off the Ss
  200. Parents still need to know that literacy & numeracy are foundational & not going away. #txeduchat
  201. A3: digit-lit guide SAM-R model can be implemented w/ease of use dependent on the learner, either T or S   #txeduchat http://t.co/OwVL5JRRwL
    A3: digit-lit guide SAM-R model can be implemented w/ease of use dependent on the learner, either T or S #txeduchat pic.twitter.com/OwVL5JRRwL
  202. @FightingFarmer1 Can you tell more about that? How do digital tools foster more higher order thinking? #txeduchat
  203. I know we all love a good graphic, but it's not WHAT you use (app, site, etc) but HOW you use it #txeduchat
  204. A3 cont...have to teach Ps of all possibilities available to Ss w/digital literacy & how it will help build their futures #txeduchat
  205. A3: A parents only page on your class web site helps also. #txeduchat
  206. Mindset is important! This graphic can help us understand the difference between mindsets http://t.co/Okb9f01C6Q #txeduchat
    Mindset is important! This graphic can help us understand the difference between mindsets pic.twitter.com/Okb9f01C6Q #txeduchat
  207. A3: Have Ps involved in DigLit Learning. Get them a GAFE account. #txeduchat
  208. A3: I try to include Ps as much as possible by providing the digital resources used in class and communicating with them #txeduchat
  209. A3 We have held parent information events with them where we do sessions like a mini-conference. #txeduchat
  210. A3: I have worked hard to instil the idea that tech is merely a tool and that correct usage is paramount. #txeduchat
  211. @JessLifTeach @iLEADCommunity Hi Jessica! I did this in a media center but using @aurasma & had the Ss do video book reviews #txeduchat
  212. #txeduchat A3 @DonWettrick has some amazing ideas.. Most revolve around projects that show know-how. Involve media, community.
  213. @d_mulder #TXeduchat Implies ability to use digital tools (some to communicate, yes). BUT we 2 often ignore emotional digital literacy IMHO
  214. A3: Build into lessons visible to parents online & share digital creations w/parents & process via LMS, blogs, Parent Nights #txeduchat
  215. @d_mulder To those of us who understand they blend seamlessly, but the world still sees an ipad as a toy, not a tool #txeduchat
  216. @d_mulder Yeah, digital literacy is much more about interactions and analysis. I see them as different. #TxEduChat
  217. Do your Ps have @GoogleForEdu accounts in your district? Just for Ss and employees here #txeduchat @patrickreid28
  218. A3: I communicate very clearly with my Ps about what tech we use in the class - the kids can access the same at home #txeduchat
  219. This is a great idea! Gotta get KIDS doing the teaching too! RT @craigyen: A3) How about parent / student tech parties!!! #txeduchat
  220. A3 Show everyone the value of connected learning and growth. Global learning instead of inside our walls. #txeduchat
  221. Love it! @MarthaJPreston: I know we all love a good graphic, but it's not WHAT you use (app, site, etc) but HOW you use it #txeduchat
  222. @txeduchat Love that 5th C! Its our theme at Sigler this year! Connecting!! #txeduchat
  223. A3: Ps are able to connect to our class LMS course, @Schoology ~Helped 2 connect & provide feedback on child's projects. #txeduchat
  224. Q4: How can administrators best support/facilitate digital literacy in the classroom? #txeduchat
  225. -->RT @drshaunamayo: Q4: How can administrators best support/facilitate digital literacy in the classroom? #txeduchat
  226. @d_mulder #Txeduchat Being aware of & knowing how to communicate what you feel, believe, want others to perceive via digital tools = vital
  227. --->>>RT @drshaunamayo: Q4: How can administrators best support/facilitate digital literacy in the classroom? #txeduchat
  228. A4) Teach digital citizenship. Don't block access for students and teachers. Provide access to the tools. #txeduchat
  229. @AlexVKluge I think I disagree. Reading, writing, viewing, speaking, listening…all part of literacy, right? Digitally too, right? #txeduchat
  230. RT @drshaunamayo: Q4: How can administrators best support/facilitate digital literacy in the classroom? #txeduchat
  231. a4: buy it. give it out. allow failure. give support. model it. talk about benefits. let Ts/Ss share successes #txeduchat
  232. @drshaunamayo A4 if they aren't in on dig literacy you need to change schools. They aren't with it and not worth two cents #txeduchat
  233. a4: support Ts needs for tech - don't block useful websites - make it easier, not tougher #txeduchat
  234. A4 Soft implementation of digital literacy. Have to show Ts how it works & helps instruction. Can't mandatee it or get push back #txeduchat
  235. A4: Encourage and model digital literacy. Give Ts opportunities to learn from each other and share best practices. #txeduchat
  236. @matthew_arend: We are working on getting parents to support digital literacy through BYOD.  http://ln.is/www.youtube.com/ijn1M  #txeduchat”cool!!
  237. A4 Living it! Tweeting, Flipping PD/Staff development, screencasting, etc Gotta be on the front lines and challenging yourself. #txeduchat
  238. A4: Admin should create an environment where risk taking is encouraged and failure is celebrated! Offer learning opps for DL #txeduchat
  239. @d_mulder @FightingFarmer1 Dig tools manage information more efficiently but r not the operators developing higher order thinking #txeduchat
  240. @drshaunamayo A4 this seems the same answer for every admin ? Let teachers and students explore #txeduchat
  241. A4: Be the first to use it, walk the talk, show Ts, Ss and Ps how you are creating and using your voice digitally #txeduchat
  242. A4: Allow Ts & Ss to take risks with tech in the classroom. Brainstorm how to improve when things don't go well. Celebrate risk! #txeduchat
  243. A4: More precisely, admin should be leading and making it acceptable to fail early to succeed sooner in this area. #txeduchat
  244. @txeduchat A3: I explain DL to Ss, Ps, SHs as essential skills for today's world - not a new teaching model. Matters to future. #txeduchat
  245. A4) Embrace it. Support quality PD. Celebrate those that allow their students to learn in the digital space. #txeduchat
  246. A4: support and encourage Ts to try new things; ask how they can help #txeduchat
  247. @craigyen #TXeduchat Yes! Had great chat about this last week. Came up with great ideas.
  248. #txeduchat a4 make sure that the sutdents are creating with the tech, communicating and pushing the envelope.
  249. A4 And model usage of it to Ts. They can't stand when they're told to do something but admin doesn't do it too #txeduchat
  250. A4: By providing support, guidance, mentoring for staff and adequate cyber safety programs for students. Safety is the key! #txeduchat
  251. @d_mulder The efficiency of the tools allow the S to get beyond wrote learning mechanics to creativity in almost any enterprise. #txeduchat
  252. @ZahnerHistory @FightingFarmer1 That is fair! And (for example) I prefer to compose on the computer too…more efficient… #txeduchat
  253. @iteachjava failure is going to happen, happens all the time…and its okay as long as its a learning experiance #txeduchat
  254. A4: If admin are unwilling to try what might fail in support of digital literacy, we're in trouble. #txeduchat http://t.co/Bm4NEynZRG
    A4: If admin are unwilling to try what might fail in support of digital literacy, we're in trouble. #txeduchat pic.twitter.com/Bm4NEynZRG
  255. A4: by providing/encouraging PD for tech integration. Modeling tech use in faculty meetings. Ask Ts that use tech to teach others #txeduchat
  256. Any change requires trust and then you can create a sense of discomfort within a safe environment. #txeduchat
  257. A4 The same way we teach our Ss: Model good use, encourage risk taking and failing forward #txeduchat
  258. A4: Admins must model, support failure, celebrate small steps, empower risk taking and lead by example! #txeduchat
  259. A4: Showcase successful Ts at faculty mtg. Give time for Ts to teach other Ts. #txeduchat
  260. #txeduchat a4: Allow creativity and stop using tech as the teacher or skill & drill replacement http://t.co/21ezx6WVYm
    #txeduchat a4: Allow creativity and stop using tech as the teacher or skill & drill replacement pic.twitter.com/21ezx6WVYm
  261. A4: Provide access to necessary professional development for staff. Many schools stop when they get devices. #txeduchat
  262. @MarthaJPreston #txeduchat Clear communication is so important. Once one understands the purpose then it can be embraced.
  263. @SISQITMAN I like your point that what you put out on the internet is much like a digital tattoo - VERY HARD to REMOVE #txeduchat
  264. RT @Abby_Howe: Digital Learning Prospers With the Right Culture - A Principal's Reflections  http://nzzl.me/1GCWjEC  via @nuzzel #txeduchat
  265. @aaron_hogan Yes! When I first read Q4 I was blank, and then I thought the same. Give Ts permission to try, and potentially fail. #TXeduchat
  266. A4: Administrators can best encourage digital literacy by modeling. Create & share!  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ISMBuLY3q7s  #txeduchat
  267. @Tom_Kilgore @drshaunamayo #TXeduchat Most important thing we can do is not put digital in a silo. It should be seamless part of learning.
  268. Create an environment where risk taking is expected & celebrated. Fail forward mentality! #txeduchat
  269. we’ve had success not pushing certain things on Ts but letting them find what they are comfortable with. More buy in that way #txeduchat

  272. @d_mulder #TXeduchat Having spent time in VWs would say yes. There's real skill 2 using text, visuals, video-digital tools not in low-tech
  273. Allow for T's to be a collaborative part of the district's digital literacy vision. Then go forward with a plan and support it. #txeduchat
  274. A4: Save money on expensive PD and utilize Ts as instructors. Use the $ to fund tech. #txeduchat
  275. @d_mulder DL opens vast opportunity for instantaneous, worldwide exposure to learning stimuli previously unattainable. #txeduchat
  276. Q5 coming right up. I am loving all of the visuals being shared. Keep them coming. #txeduchat
  277. “@BSGSCSFoster: #txeduchat a4: Allow creativity and stop using tech as the teacher or skill & drill replacement http://t.co/iJjB34DzR8” yes!

  278. A4: support staff development Create Ed-tech ldrs on campus (ie librarians & CITs:) promote through good T/S examples Showcase #txeduchat
  279. @martysnowpaw @drshaunamayo Very true, should be purposeful & deliberate, not for sake of using tech #txeduchat
  280. @d_mulder #txeduchat Interestingly, many people on autism spectrum did better in text & avatars cuz didn't have 2 try to read visual clues.
  281. THIS-->> @matthew_arend: A4: Admins must model, support failure, celebrate small steps, empower risk taking and lead by example! #txeduchat
  282. .@coachfisher_rp I've always wanted to try "Tech Speed Dating" at staff meetings! 😊 #txeduchat
  283. My teams focus has been using sites that encourage shared assignments like #padlet any other good suggestions? #txeduchat #samr
  284. A4: Personally recognize the Ts who take risks with technology. Knowing your risks are appreciated really helps. #txeduchat
  285. @craigyen #Txeduchat Dang, knew you would ask me that. I want to say here maybe, but I can look it up. Some really great ideas. I'll look up
  286. Random Q: How do you manage your digital identity? How do you decide what to share or not share? #txeduchat
  287. @MrAlbertSES No doubt! Invite parents and businesses to see Ss show work. #txeduchat
  288. @DocentEDU @craigyen Certainly, you have to take into consideration the age of your Ss, but w/HS Ss, it's they're already online #txeduchat
  289. Q5: What are your "go to" digital literacy resources or tools? Why? #txeduchat
  290. A4: As need to demo, promote, ask, offer, encourage, support, safe-learning-trying-failing-try again space #txeduchat
  291. --->>>RT @drshaunamayo: Q5: What are your "go to" digital literacy resources or tools? Why? #txeduchat

  293. -->RT @drshaunamayo: Q5: What are your "go to" digital literacy resources or tools? Why? #txeduchat

  296. @whitneykilgore experience, intuition, and the fact my mother actually reads my blog posts and comments. #txeduchat
  297. @drshaunamayo @txeduchat A4: Admins can model it, train Ts with effective PD, send some Ts to TCEA class conf., etc. #txeduchat
  298. @d_mulder easier to post here than to live out, but it's an idea worth striving toward #txeduchat
  299. #txeduchat A4 Chats w/Ts during #EdCamps -> constraints to DL teaching = policy, time (for Ts to learn its teaching).. Both admin territory
  300. @matthew_arend #txeduchat P must get involved 2 gain buy-in despite what they've been told, still fear games will b played
  301. A4 End policies that prohibit the natural use of tech for learning. Use/Model...Engage. Be a part of the digital movement #txeduchat
  302. A5: My go to digital literacy tool is camera on my phone & iPad. Capture moments of learning, of success, or failure, and share #txeduchat
  303. @drshaunamayo @BSGSCSFoster #TXeduchat in the 60's we showed them the movies their kiddos made their collages & dioramas Ps were blown away
  304. @MonicaSimonds That is awesome! I've heard about it & would love to see it/be a part of it.😊 #txeduchat
  305. A5 My best tool: modeling mistakes & that I don't know everything & I look stuff up all the time! Makes my Ts more likely to try #txeduchat
