This is an audio recording of Dr. Wesley Fryer’s presentation, Digital Literacy Framework for Common Core, on August 28, 2013, for teachers in Wells-Ogunquit Community School District. Access presentation slides (including links to referenced videos) on SlideShare. (Be SURE, if you have not already, to watch the referenced Google Search Story “Cheryl and Morgan: Learning Independence,” which is about teachers, students and parents in Wells, Maine.) The session description was: To be digitally literate, teachers as well as students need to be able to create and share online a variety of different multimedia products. These media products can be “mapped” to your curriculum, and if you’re in a Common Core state in the United States, to the Common Core State Standards. Interactive Writing, Narrated Art, 5 Photo Stories, Narrated Slideshows / Screencasts, Quick Edit Videos, and eBooks are a few of the media products learners should be able to create and safely share online. In this session, we’ll view different examples of student media products and learn about tools and strategies for helping teachers become digitally literate as “media mappers.” We’ll also explore how librarians and instructional coaches can use the “Mapping Media to the Curriculum” website as a roadmap to help teachers and students create media products as assignments for class and as artifacts in digital portfolios.
