A Proposal of Online Hybrid Teacher Professional Training for Digital Literacy Curriculum

Shu-Yi Hsu, M.A. in Instructional Technology and Media

With the change of the curriculum standards (such as the common core standards) and the proliferation of technology, it constantly posits new challenges and impacts to teaching and learning. Digital literacy (Gilster, 1997; Jenkins, 2009) is viewed as one of the growing and critical ability which teachers need to acquire in the 21st century. Teachers face intense schedules, may be overburdened with tasks, and are expected by administration and school districts to continually enhance their professional capabilities (Dede et al., 2005). However, it is often difficult for teachers to find professional training that could both fit in their busy schedules and could also match their needs and interests for professional development. This study presents a framework of an online hybrid teacher professional development curriculum for digital literacy. The topic of the training focuses on assessment design and the participants will explore, utilize and evaluate technology—instant response system.

In order to create a supportive and engaging learning experience, this study borrows self-determination theory (Deci & Ryan, 1985) and Understanding by Design (Wiggins & McTighe, 2005) to inform the curriculum and instructional design.
