    of Action"
    This article is a comprehensive plan of action for all educators. Whether you use technology or not, you are affected by technology. “The United States is in a flux on how to proceed with digital and media literacy.” There needs to be a guideline on how we should use and produce digital media where it is used in an educational setting or for entertainment. In the report, there are 10 recommendations for local, regional, state and national initiatives that meet the needs of the public and educational settings. Supporting Digital and Media Literacy Initiative and Develop Partnerships for Teacher Education were the two that resonated with me the most.
    “Developing Partnerships for Teachers Education,” suggested by Renee Hobbs is one I totally agree with local communities or leaders providing digital summer learning programs, support or resources to schools all schools would have equal services. With today’s economy, not all schools can afford teacher in-service on this topic. Partnerships with local news agencies or technology companies can promote digital and media literacy to all schools. This past school year, I contacted AT&T OASIS to help with “Coding” as an outreach project. Students came over for one day and it was a great success! Students asked for another day. They truly enjoyed working and collaborating with each other on how to solve simple and complex programming problems. AT&T OASIS Group asked to come back next year and would like to help set up a Coding Club. This was a great success where a local group came to share their expertise. By working together, we are building a partnership that supports digital learning in my community.

    The purpose of this lesson is to teach my students the importance of Ellis Island and why it is important in American history.
    The audience is 5th grade students.
    The message we want to share is American history and the melting pot of the United States.
    The key content will be students sharing the process of people coming to America and how hard it was to get to America for some of them. Why immigrants came here to settle? Did they have troubles in their journey? Why were some sent back to their original countries? What does it mean to be an American?
    The value will be communicated through image, language and sound.
    The creative techniques will be the student’s videos.

    Professional learning back at school will not be the same because of the intimacy of this workshop. Everyone wants to learn and be productive! One idea would be to hold quarterly Google Video Chats for those of us who would like to have a sounding board. This would give answers and ideas to everyone who is taking part. Maybe even log them so everyone can go back and review when we have time.
