Media and Digital Classes
We all know that we’re living through a time of great change, and that the use of digital technology is an ever-increasing part of everything we do, as we move more and more online – and that includes media.
Media is constantly changing and children’s engagement with it developing at an incredible rate. In this digital era, media has taken on a broader meaning. Increasingly it is where children socialise, and how they experience the wider world.
In the years ahead it will be something we haven’t even heard of yet – so it is vital that on all of this we continue to look forward and prepare for the next innovation.
As educators this is a challenge for us to realise and incorporate into our curriculum and education. It is important that the Dr Abdul Qadeer Khan’s Schoolnurtures students’ ability and confidence to excel both online and offline in a world where digital media is omnipresent. We can measure, and develop each child’s digital intelligence into three areas:
Level 1: Digital citizenship
The ability to use digital technology and media in a safe, responsible and effective manner.
Level 2: Digital creativity
The ability to become a part of the digital ecosystem by co-creating new content and turning ideas into reality by using digital tools.
Level 3: Digital entrepreneurship
The ability to use digital media and technologies to solve global challenges or to create new opportunities.
