Sharing Information - A Day in Your Life
Along with the constant influx of new information, students also rely on more digital devices and digital modes of communication to relay that information. Consequently, students need to be able to use these new digital environments with confidence and competence. As adults, it is our responsibility to guide them in understanding the different types of digital tools and the content they provide; strengthen their critical thinking skills, including awareness of commercial strategies or bias in the media; introduce them to the choices available in online and digital communications, and help build the skills necessary to protect themselves from unsafe or inappropriate content.
