Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, January 28, 2014 6:07 PM

it also gives students to work at a pace that is comfortable for them, most of all I reckon it's the information that they are able to share in a seemingly short space of time and they can actually work on their notes outside school times, that's a tick for blended learning

Our learners live in a connected world where technology impacts their lives daily. Our students often dedicate many hours to communicating, sharing, and learning online. It’s the main way they learn and they receive a surplus of information. Sadly, few reflect on the value or validity of that information. We need to teach our students to have a critical eye when navigating the web.  Below are a few ideas and resources to help you teach your learners about digital literacy.
