Digital Literacy for Primary Teachers

By Moira Savage, Anthony Barnett

The educational landscape for primary teachers and learners is increasingly digital and technology rich, making it a challenge for professionals to decide which digital technologies to use, how, and when, to bring about the maximum benefit for learning and teaching. This book navigates this complex and evolving arena, providing a structure for teachers to reflect on their own digital literacy, helping them make informed decisions. It also presents practical ideas on how to develop children's digital literacy capabilities and offers a range of professional development activities. The book makes clear links to the new primary curriculum, including the computing programs of study. It is pedagogy led and illustrated with a range of subject examples. The chapters examine the implications of digital literacy for teaching and learning, creating content, collaboration and communication, digital citizenship, e-safety, and digital safeguarding. *** Librarians: ebook available on ProQuest and EBSCO (Series: Critical Teaching) [Subject: Education, Digital Literacy]
