Literacy with ICT Across the Curriculum Overview

In Manitoba technology, literacy and communication, problem solving, and human relations are considered “foundation skills” and are included in a wide range of curricula from Kindergarten to Grade 12. This approach is based on a focus on inquiry, critical and creative thinking, digital citizenship, multiple literacies (including digital literacies) and a gradual release of responsibility from the instructor to the student, with the ultimate goal of making the student responsible for his or her learning.

Elements

Literacy with ICT Across the Curriculum divides student learning into the Affective and Cognitive domains. Affective skills include being aware of Ethics and Responsibility and Social Implications, learning Collaboration, and developing Motivation and Confidence; Cognitive skills include being able to Plan and Question, Gather and Make Sense, Produce to Show Understanding, Communicate and Reflect.
