Building the Four Big Ideas

There are actually 4 big ideas that support becoming literate in a digital world. These include Tools, Content, Media, and Sharing. Tools are the devices we choose to learn and communicate with – like software and hardware. Content refers to the subject students are learning. Media is the form of communication used. And Sharing is how we distribute information.

In this preview, Renee Schumacher dives into each of these 4 big ideas and gives practical examples of how to use them in your classroom and embed them into your lessons.
