This blog article “Technology Skills We Should Be Teaching in College” by @busynessgirl, a Math Professor at Muskegon Community College, was making the tweet/re-tweet rounds on twitter today.
The list (60 items long) may seem daunting, but it is worth taking a look at. If only for the fact that, in my opinion, “technology literacy” is something that colleges and universities should take a hold of as part of their educational mission. Tech literacy is, broadly speaking, a general education requirement in the 21st century. And we are the teachers… 🙂
The list made me think, and that’s always a good thing. I liked that it had specifics and more general categories like “presentations” and “organization.”
Oh yeah, some Math faculty may want to dig around in her site. According to her tweets she is doing some interesting stuff like mashing together Wolfram Alpha computational “searches” and Jing… mighty interesting!
