Digital Literacy and Beyond

About This Session

Summary

We probably all agree that digital literacy is important, but how do we include it in our beginning ESL classrooms? Let’s get hands-on about how to integrate these important skills in our lessons for adult learners.

Digital literacy, and digital resilience, are increasingly critical for a successful life in the United States, but many of our classrooms lack technology for students to use, and/or teachers lack confidence in how to include it.

What we'll cover:

In this session, we will look at basic strategies for incorporating digital literacy skills in lessons for beginning-level adult English Language Learners, even when technology resources are limited. We will also take a deep dive into the Digital Access and Resilience in Texas curriculum, a free resource available on the TCALL website.

We will start with what to do when a learner has no or limited first language literacy or lacks Roman-alphabet literacy. Step-by-step, we will work through some of the challenges of including digital literacy, including the challenge of multi-level classrooms and various levels of learner skill with digital technologies.
