Literacy in the 21st Century - Team A

Digital Storytelling

According to California State Board of Education California Common Core State Standards (2013), "Portraits" about students who are college ready and literate in reading, writing, speaking, listening and language exhibit the following capabilities with increasing fullness:-They demonstrate independence-They build strong content knowledge-They respond to varying demands of audience, -Task, purpose and discipline-They comprehend as well as critique-They value evidence-They use technology and digital media strategically and capably -They come to understand other perspectives and cultures

Alber (2013), "Being literate means one who is advanced at reading, writing, speaking, and listening. And, in all schools -- deeper learning driven or not -- literacy is a curriculum fundamental" (para. 2).


Literacy in the 21st Century


"In 2010, the California State Board of Education (SBE) adopted the California Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects (CA CCSS for ELA/Literacy), which describe the knowledge, skills, and abilities in reading, writing, speaking and listening, conventions, knowledge of language, and vocabulary that all students need for college and career readiness across key academic content areas. Those standards, along with the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics and the Next Generation Science Standards, were adopted by California to ensure K-12 (kindergarten through grade 12) students gain the necessary literacy/language arts, science, and mathematics understanding and practices required for twenty-first-century higher-education and workplace participation" (California Department of Education, 2014, pg. 2)


The Alber (2013), "According to the NCTE (National Council of Teachers of English), twenty-first century readers and writers need to:-Gain proficiency with tools of technology-Develop relationships with others and confront and solve problems collaboratively and cross-culturally-Design and share information for global communities to meet a variety of purposes-Manage, analyze, and synthesize multiple streams of simultaneous information-Create, critique, analyze, and evaluate multimedia texts-Attend to the ethical responsibilities required by these complex environments" (para. 4)

According to "National Council of Teachers of English" (2013), "Because technology has increased the intensity and complexity of literate environments, the 21st century demands that a literate person possess a wide range of abilities and competencies, many literacies" (para. 1).
