I would like to add to Beth Dicther's share, via Richard Byrne's Free Technology 4 Teachers, that website evaluation skills should be a necessity for any student and educator regardless of online or face-to-face.

Alan November: Web-Literacy-where-the-common-core-meets-common-sense

Are you as worried as we are that the overall impact
of technology on our children’s ability to solve
complex research problems is negative? Have you
heard a child near you say, “Just Google it,” when
asked to describe the meaning of life?

Alan November provides perspective...


I've always found that good teaching will meet multiple standards. The time it takes to align and document the process is what got me down. Sometimes it takes an outside perspective to help you see the inter-connections between standards that allow you to check off multiple standards in a single lesson.

Español   العربية
Media and Information Literacy education is a recently-developed pedagogical approach that take into consideration the new cultures emerging from the Information Society. Some prefer the terms Media Education, News Literacy, Digital Literacy, Information Literacy, or 21st Century Literacies. Media Studies and Media Ecology researchers world-wide are also contributing to the development of these new educational initiatives.

The approach to media literacy education taken by the UNAOC is inclusive and open. Through the Media and Information Literacy clearinghouse the Alliance of Civilizations welcomes contributions from organizations, university departments, associations, groups and individuals who are developing new pedagogical tools, strategies, and theories that take into consideration the challenges of our hyper-mediatized world.

As described, "innovative ways" by the author are sparked by a creative, knowledgable source for implementing learning with technology. Consider how you can tweak or directly use these ideas in the Google-driven classroom.

Google For Educators - Web Search | Information Literacy 101 | Scoop.it

Web search can be a remarkable research tool for students - and we've heard from educators that they could use some help to teach better search skills in their classroom.

 

The following Search Education lessons were developed by Google Certified Teachers to help you do just that. The lessons are short, modular and not specific to any discipline so you can mix and match to what best fits the needs of your classroom. Additionally, all lessons come with a companion set of slides (and some with additional resources) to help you guide your in-class discussions.
