Literacy in the Digital Age

Language and Literacy Spectrum Volume 24,


21st century learners arrive at school with technological knowledge and skills that necessitate the need for educational systems to transform instructional practices to meet learners' needs. The International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) developed ISTE Standards for students, teachers, administrators, coaches, and computer science educators that define best practices and standards of excellence with technology. Literacy educators are greatly impacted by the technological shift in education and require a deep level of proficiency with the ISTE Standards for Teachers. The purpose of this article is to provide an overview of the ISTE Standards for Teachers and provide literacy educators with an evaluative tool to measure their adeptness with the knowledge and skills needed to teach in the digital age.
