Digital Literacy - collaborative activities

Digital Literacy - collaborative activities | Digital Literacy - Education | Scoop.it

This course will examine how new and emerging technologies in social and digital media are affecting our culture. Students will be introduced to current web 2.0 tools and applications for learning and inquiry. The course will call upon students to think critically, question, and demonstrate what they have learned using an array of applications.

Anthony Beal's insight:

A series of collaborative activities to help students learn more about the digital environment and their place in it.

 

In addition to examining tools and applications that can be used in education the activities look at issues such as: digital identity, digital footprint, copyright, plagiarism and evaluating web resources. Each activity consists of a session plan and guidance on how to assess the work produced.


Although designed for a high school audience the resources could be adapted for FE and Skills learners.

 

Thanks to John Dalziel for pointing out this resource.
