Digital Literacy Made Simple: Strategies for Building Skills Across the Curriculum (Kammer & Hays, 2023)

Discover and explore simple ways to teach digital literacy skills throughout the day and across various content areas, without a formal digital literacy curriculum.

Digital literacy describes skills and ways of thinking related to the use of technology, including the technical competence to communicate, evaluate and interpret digital information, navigate websites and understand why all these skills are important.

All students need these skills to be responsible participants in school and society. However, teaching digital literacy can be challenging for teachers who have many other content standards they must address. In this book, two innovative educators demonstrate how to weave digital literacy skills throughout instruction in small ways, with simple strategies to discuss, model, mentor, build a learning culture and create digital experiences to improve students' digital literacy skills and habits.

Topics presented in this book address all major components of UIUC’s definition and assessment of teaching excellence and are essential for instructors who will teach online.
