Develop digital natives' new literacy skills using ICTs

NSF Awards: 1020091

2015 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades 6-8

Digital natives are no more technology savvy than their teachers, according to our study. The gap of technology usage at schools lies in teachers’ lack of knowledge and skills in integrating technology. Our project prepared 45 NYC teachers how to develop their students’ new literacy skills through the use of free, reliable technology. Teachers went through two years of training, learn how to use ICTs, what is the new literacy framework, and how to conduct inquiry activities using technologies. The results show that students are much more motivated when teachers meaningfully integrate technology. They have better learning outcomes, and stronger confidence in using technology. Students use these technologies to develop their cognitive skills and apply their inquiry skills.
