The DigiLit Framework
Baxa, Julie; Christ, Tanya
Reading Teacher, v71 n6 p703-714 May-Jun 2018
Selecting and integrating the use of digital texts/tools in literacy lessons are complex tasks. The DigiLit framework provides a succinct model to guide planning, reflection, coaching, and formative evaluation of teachers' successful digital text/tool selection and integration for literacy lessons. For digital text/tool selection, teachers need to consider content accuracy, quality for supporting literacy development, intuitiveness, and user interactivity. For integrating these into instruction, modeling and guided practice should be provided for both literacy skills/strategies and the use of digital text/tool affordances. Also, instruction should capitalize on the digital affordances to transform instruction beyond what is possible with paper-and-pencil texts and tools. Examples of using the DigiLit framework to evaluate digital text/tool selections and their integration into literacy instruction are provided.
