Oehler suggests teachers need to be more digitally fluent but claims it is more of a perspective than a skill set. I would argue one needs a little of both. Is a belief in the importance of new literacies really enough to be an effective guide?
I think that there is perhaps a set of skills that are necessary but not sufficient to be a good teacher/guide in the realm of digital and multimedia literacies. I am wondering specifically what that skill set would look like? Or if it is true that one only needs a positive perspective...what would a classroom look like where the teacher really had almost no technology skills but was able to effectively lead his/her students to digital fluency.
Wow, that is one heck of a question. Instead of writing a very long, and very detailed answer, I am going to direct you to an article that discuses this topic: Today's Classrooms Are Going Hybrid: Six Ways You Can Benefit
