In our technology-driven, globally diverse world, students are consuming and producing many forms of electronic media. How do we develop teaching strategies for the 21st Century classroom given changing ideas about literacy? This course is designed for K-12 educators looking to integrate an array of current digital technology skills with core academic subjects. The state of Maine has joined the National Partnership for 21st Century Skills (see http://www.21stcenturyskills.org) and advocates the infusion of these skills into K-12 learning.

We need a few more in this class to make it a go. Please join us!

Audio and video content can be accessed online, created by individuals or groups and used for collaborative conversations. The first step of the course is acquiring and organizing existing content available from online. Next is learning to use podcasting tools to create content. Participants can then expand from podcasting to screencasting and vodcasting to make use of the distributed, collaborative potential of these tools.
