Innovation Agenda
Digital Learning Day 2014

This year Digital Learning Day is Wednesday, February 5, 2014. This day is set aside each year to showcase and support the effective and ethical use of technology in the daily lives of all students.

digital_learning_day.pngThe Cambridge Public Schools’ Information, Communication, and Technology Services (ICTS) Department supports digital learning every day in our schools through planning, teaching, coaching, and technical support to provide teachers and students access to digital tools that enhance and extend the curriculum. To celebrate Digital Learning Day and continue to support the ICTS School-Based teams, on February 13th, a morning of professional development for the K-5 Library Media Specialists, Instructional Technology Specialists, and Technology Support Technicians was held to learn more about a newly designed Media Literacy and Production curriculum.

The CPS Educational Technology Library Media Learning Expectations has identified Media Literacy as one of six areas of essential skills to prepare students for lifelong learning, effective information seeking and responsible decision-making. This new curriculum, targeted at grade 5, use advertising as a lens to accomplish the following objectives:

  •  understand the role of media in society
  •  build the essential skills of inquiry and critical thinking
  •  analyze and evaluate the purpose, meaning and perspective of media
  •  apply their learning to create thoughtful, original media

The morning professional development session included an opportunity to get “hands on” with this new curriculum and new digital video cameras purchased for each K-5 school, as well as, discussed ways to integrate these and other digital tools into the classrooms and curriculum.
