Title: Literacy with ICT

Literacy with ICT
I Information C Communication T - Technology
A developmental learning continuum.
What is Literacy with ICT ?
  • Literacy with ICT means choosing and using ICT
    responsibly and ethically, to support critical
    and creative thinking about information and about
    communication as citizens of the global
  • Literacy with ICT includes 3 components

affective domain
supporting skills
cognitive domain
  • The Cognitive Domain of the developmental
    continuum for Literacy with ICT contains five big
    ideas that encompass critical creative
  • plan and question
  • gather and make sense
  • produce to show understanding
  • communicate
  • reflect

Critical Creative Thinking
  • The Affective Domain of the developmental
    continuum for Literacy with ICT contains four big
    ideas that encompass digital citizenship
  • ethics and responsibility
  • social implications
  • collaboration
  • motivation and confidence

Ethics Responsibility
  • The Supporting (ICT Literacy) Skills of the
    developmental continuum for Literacy with ICT is
    divided into four categories
  • access and communication skills
  • input/output skills
  • tools and text skills
  • vocabulary

ICT Literacy
Literacy with ICT is NOT a curriculum -
  • since ICT is not a separate subject in K-8, the
    continuum of Literacy with ICT is designed to be
    congruent and integrated with existing big ideas
    in core curricular areas
  • since the emphasis in K-8 is on curricular
    content, the role of ICT is to support student
    learning in English language arts, mathematics,
    science, and social studies
  • since the focus is on what students can do, any
    learner can find his/herself on a continuum, from
    pre-K students to seniors, from novices to
    experts, regardless of their grade level

Literacy with ICT is the INQUIRY process WITHIN
each curriculum
Curriculum English Language Arts Mathematics Science Social Studies
LwICT Process inquiry problem- solving scientific inquiry / design process research
How can students demonstrate their literacy with
  • In the Cognitive Domain, literate students
    develop this literacy through a process of
    inquiry across the curriculum
  • Plan and question
  • Gather and make sense
  • Produce to show understanding
  • Communicate
  • Reflect on their learning
  • In the Affective Domain literate students choose
    and use ICT ethically and responsibly to support
    their critical and creative thinking, about
    information and communication, as citizens of the
    global community.

Developmental Stages
What are various models for connecting
curriculum/learning with ICT?
What is the developmental learning continuum for
The developmental learning continuum for LwICT is
an assessment tool FOR learning based on teacher
observation. It describes what teachers see and
hear students doing as they demonstrate their
literacy with ICT.
How do students teachers assess LwICT?
Anne Davies http//
What is the purpose of the student friendly
version of the continuum?
- students take ownership of their own assessment
through student-friendly descriptors
Who is involved in developing literacy with ICT?
  • all Manitoba K-8 students are developing their
    literacy with ICT
  • all Manitoba K-8 teachers are providing
    opportunities for their students to develop
    literacy with ICT across the curriculum
  • all Manitoba schools are reporting to parents
    about the development of their childs literacy
    with ICT

How might the Developmental Continuum for
Literacy with ICT be used for reporting?
  • As a component of the student report card sent
    home to parents.
  • To support learners conversations around their
    portfolios at student-led conferences.
  • To engage parents in setting goals and in
    creating a learning plan at a student-led
