Consider This:

2) Digital literacy means keeping current with knowledge and understanding of mobile devices, the web, computers, and related technologies.  It is important because technology changes and if you don’t keep up to date you would not be able to work efficiently and effectively relating to digital technology.

4) Keyboards available for tablets and smartphones are on-screen keyboards, separate physical keyboards tablets can attach to and some smartphones have a slide out keyboard.

5) Besides books, other digital media like newspapers and magazines that can be read on e-book readers.

 

Internet Research:  1) Making use of the Web

1)      Informational:  lifehack.org;  makeuseof.com;  time.com; dailytekk.com; topyaps.com;   variety of information and list of sites with helpful hints to even ratings for movies.

 

Research:  teachthought.com;  websearch.about.com;  ebizmba.com; emergingedtech.com; askatechteacher.wordpress.com;  these list sites that would be helpful for academic research.

 

I used the text – top informational websites and top research websites.

 

2)      5 of Google’s things we know to be true.  1-Focus on the user and all else will follow, 2-It’s best to do one thing really, really well, 3-Faster is better than slow, 4-Democracy on the web works, 5-You don’t need to be at your desk to need an answer.
