    1. Promising trends

      Promising Trends Consist of:

      • Ensuring digital literacy for all.
      • Teaching computer and programming skills to children and young people.
      • Facilitate the development of digital skills needed for the ICT profession.
      • Foster 'soft' and 'complementary' digital skills.
    1. Digital education

      We as a society are seeing more technology being brought into the classroom. My opinion on this goes both ways, it is good and bad. It is good for students to interact with technology and use other resources that are accessible to them as students. But this technology can be a distraction to some and can take away from the traditional skills children learn in the classroom such as reading a paperback book, or writing notes, etc.

    2. 5. How we respond and behave when using digital media is influenced by the architecture of the platforms, which reflects the biases and assumptions of their creators.

      Concept #5 Digital Literacy

    3. 4. Digital media experiences are real, but don’t always feel real.

      Concept #4 of Digital Literacy

    4. 3. Digital media have unknown and unexpected audiences.

      Concept #3 of Digital Literacy

      • audiences are different depending on the content you find on the internet
    5. 2. Digital media are persistent, searchable and shareable.

      Concept #2 of Digital Literacy:

      • Digital content is permanent, and many forget about this all the time.
      • So that is why parents, educators, and peers emphasize to be careful what you post on the internet because it could come back to hurt you, later in your life time.
    6. 1. Digital media are networked

      Key Concept #1 of Digital Literacy

    7. Create is the ability to produce content and effectively communicate through a variety of digital media tools.

      Good definition of "create". This I can see also relates to creativity, which is important for our future students to be creative and unique.

    8. Understand is that critical piece – it’s the set of skills that help us comprehend, contextualize, and critically evaluate digital media so that we can make informed decisions about what we do and encounter online.

      I believe that this is a crucial part of the digital literacy model. If one does not understand how to make informed decisions about what we do online, we as humans could potential get ourselves in trouble, so to speak.

    9. Skills and competencies that fall under “use” range from basic technical know-how – using computer programs such as word processors, web browsers, email and other communication tools

      Good definition of what "use" is on the digital literacy model

    10. This model

      The model above is a great visual representation of what digital literacy is!

    11. Digital literacy is as much a key part of learning about history and learning how to study history, and learning about science and learning how to study science,

      This relates back to how we use technology in the classroom, and also how it is a great tool we as a society are lucky to have.

    12. Instant-messaging, photo sharing, texting, social networking, video-streaming and mobile Internet use

      These actions are things we as a society do everyday. They are extremely influential and are inevitable in todays society.

    13. “it is not… enough to assume that young people automatically have all of the skills, knowledge and understanding that they need to apply to their use of technology.

      This statement emphasizes the need for understanding that everyone is not perfect, we are humans. Humans acquire knowledge over time through experience, not everyone is born with prominent technology skills.

    14. In order to be literate in today’s media-rich environments, young people need to develop knowledge, values and a whole range of critical thinking, communication and information management skills for the digital age

      Today's society focuses solely on the media because it is so prevalent, so this does create a demand for knowledge. So I significantly agree with this statement.
