Abstract/摘要:

The 21st Century Skills Map for World Languages guides our thinking about three new types of literacy-information, media, and technology. The enhancement of technology literacy helps students use proper technology to better interpret, interact, and produce in class. By way of examining how digital storytelling is incorporated into advanced Chinese instruction, this study shows how the enhancement of technology literacy can be achieved through proper design, assignment, and assessment of content-based and technology-informed course projects. It focuses on how digital storytelling can encourage students to mobilize their linguistic, research, analytical, and critical thinking skills to produce meaningful multimedia texts in Chinese, therefore further improve their language proficiency and cultural knowledge.

《21世纪能力指南:外语篇》重视对学生信息素养、媒介素养和技术素养的培养。提高学生的技术素养,有助于培养学生运用适合的技术手段来理解、整合、创造信息,并与人交流。本文以数字化故事叙述在高级汉语课堂中的应用为例,深入探讨了如何通过设计、布置和评估具有科技含量的汉语课程项目,来进一步提高学生的技术素养。文章重点探讨了数字化故事叙述在帮助学生提高语言运用、研究分析和独立思辨能力方面的作用,指出数字化故事叙述不仅能鼓励学生创造出生动并有内涵的中文多媒体文本,也能提高学生的汉语语言能力和其对中国文化知识的认识和理解。
