Digital Literacy for Teachers
Digital Literacy is the awareness, attitude and ability of individuals to appropriately use digital tools and facilities to identify, access, manage, integrate, evaluate, analyse and synthesise resources, construct new knowledge and create media.

Personal: Conferences/workshops - take notes, record audio, take images - tag (keywords) all these notes and then file them in NOTEBOOKS (folders). Make sure you set up the folders, the first time (rather than having lots of notes Professional learning records/hobbies.

  1. Keep a notebook on each child (or class) and store evidence records such as images, examples of work, handwriting etc. Perfect for parent teacher interviews or meetings about progress of student. Also keep audio examples of assessment (great for running records).
  2. Manage your planning and curriculum (shared folders or documents with others)- Evernote Free only gives you the ability to share folders/notes but (not edit).

Using Twitter in Education

Manage your twitter account (with #hashtags),

Use Flipboard to read and collect the news you care about (signed in with your Twitter Or Facebook account), curating (collecting) into your own 'magazines' on any topic.

Track back your old tweets - handy for when you are working on a project, or excursion.

Manage your social media all in one place (i.e. Facebook, LinkedIn, Google Plus, Twitter). Rather than having to go to five different websites, can see all the ideas coming in.

Use Stori.fy to collect stories from social media (great after a conference).
