Digital skills students need for the future

According to the Pew Report The impact of digital tools on student writing and how writing is taught in schools, teachers believe that judging the quality of information (91%), behaving responsibly online (85%), and understanding privacy issues pertaining to online and digital content (78%), are essential to students’ success later in life. It’s good to see that information literacy skills are ranked so highly by teachers, which is ironic, when you consider how school librarian positions are being eliminated in so many provinces in Canada.
