Our goals as teachers are to awaken students’ love of life and to direct their hopes and andy's mural resizeddesires into a hunger for learning.  As a teacher and digital and media literacy curriculum designer, I know it is important:

  • to engage students in digital literacy learning so they acquire additional skills and strategies;
  • to develop student learning experiences that connect youths’ in-school and out-of-school learning;
  • to offer inquiry into topics that arouse youth passions to assist them as they become more fully literate;
  • to balance opportunities for analysis with original composition so that critical examination is not negative and reductionist;
  • and, to think of media literacy as a socially inclusive approach which calls upon civic participation and thinking about lifelong learning.
