10 Steps to Media and Technology Literacy

Rather than simply use technology to support instruction, I firmly believe that media technologies exist to transform teaching and learning in a reciprocally innovative relationship between teacher and student (both of which are learners). With that said, many teachers are swimming (some even drowning) in a sea of curriculum standards that have been imposed upon them. I revisit here a presentation from several years ago that walks teachers and school administrators down the path of simple-yet-critical inquiry when planning for instruction in their schools, classrooms, and lesson plans. The key is in the process of mapping out curriculum, pedagogy, and technology use. From this perspective, how we think about subject matter is equally (and sometimes more) important than what we think of it.
