Educational Technology Literacy
Conducting Research in the Ashford Library
A peer reviewed journal or article is an article or journal that has been reviewed by experts in the field and deemed to be worth reading by other professionals. Typically this is an extensive process in which reviewers are carefully vetted for expertise and professional experience. In this assignment, you will have an opportunity to examine a peer reviewed article and apply what you have learned to a professional scenario or activity.
Please refer to the following tutorials for guidance on conducting scholarly research at the Ashford Library:
•About Scholarly Journals and Online Databases
•How to Conduct Research Using the Ashford Library
Part 1: Drawing from your personal experiences and at least one peer-reviewed research article found in our Ashford University Library, describe what “educational technology literacy” is characterized by in terms of behaviors and knowledge.
•Tip: Suggested search keywords are “improving technology literacy,” “educational technology literacy,” or “digital literacy.” You should then use this article(s) to support your response in the weekly discussion. Please specify the database where you located the article(s) as part of your APA citation.
Part 2: Lever-Duffy and McDonald’s (2015) remark “… the expectation of educational technology literacy has come to be at the core of professional preparation and ongoing developing” (p.9). In a couple sentences, explain why you think this has become the case.
Part 3: Next, rate your level of “educational technology literacy” today on a scale of “very literate” to “somewhat literate” to “not very literate”. Finally, conclude your initial post with a list of three or more strategies you plan to utilize to continually update your educational technology literacy throughout your lifetime.
