Do you need digital tools?

mac Twitter can do a lot of the hard work for you if you follow the right people and build a good professional learning network. @mrich1911, a maths teacher, left a very useful link to a digital skills list for teachers. Good example of how we can help each other professionally no matter where we live and what we teach. The Educational Technology and Mobile Learning site has had significant work put in by the creator of the site. This person has listed digital skills and then grouped tools under the heading. It means you can see if you are familiar with the tools and whether you have learning gaps. It  also means you can easily find tools to use in class when you want to concentrate on a particular aspect of digital learning. The beauty of this list is that it is current. Basic principles don’t change but tools are changed and updated and new ways of performing digital tasks often follow trends and patterns. The list creates a firm foundation for the 21st century learning environment.
