Dear Parents and Students:

            DigLit is an opportunity for all students interested in enhancing their learning experience prior to entering the classroom. Each unit within DigLit provides a foundation of knowledge as well as enrichment opportunities relevant to upcoming course material. Tasks and challenges requested of the student are intended to both expand the learner’s knowledge and sharpen the learner’s literacy skills. Successfully completed tasks and challenges will be recognized by course instructors; participation is voluntary.

Summer Reading goes viral!!!

Alma Bryant High School leads the way with DigLit!!

A digital literacy website will be available throughout the summer months to provide valuable opportunities to practice necessary literary skills, explore relevant content, and prepare for the upcoming school year. Encourage your students to DigLit!!

Literacy is sooooo much more than just "reading."

Literacy is a survival tool!!

 

 

            And, just like man evolves, literacy evolves. Living in a technological age requires literacy to exist in a unique environment; this technological age encourages the literate to acquire and to consume information quickly, efficiently, and holistically. With infinite sources available to those who desire to learn, technology provides a classroom that is both intimidating and enlightening. Yet, the sources are useless if the consumer is illiterate. Technology is powerless if the message cannot be coded nor decoded. Most important, technology – much like the brain – is wasted if not used to its potential.

            Thus, DigLit has been created for the use of today’s consumer. DigLit provides a learning environment meant to enhance the classroom. To meet one’s potential requires the ability to both read and write well. These literacy skills brought man out of the Stone Age. Man continues to evolve. Education should as well.

                                                                        Let’s read and write in a digital classroom… DigLit!
