21 Things 4 Teachers

"This site and the hands-on activities were developed to help educators looking to learn to use 21st century "tools" from the Internet to improve their own technology skills and learn ways to integrate technology into classroom practice" ~About 21T4T

21st Century Information and Communication Technology Literacy Map for English

In collaboration with several content area organizations, the Partnership for 21st Century Skills developed a series of ICT Literacy Maps illustrating the intersection between Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Literacy and core academic subjects including English, mathematics, science and social studies (civics/government, geography, economics, history). The maps enable educators to gain concrete examples of how ICT Literacy can be integrated into core subjects, while making the teaching and learning of core subjects more relevant to the demands of the 21st century.
