7 ways to teach digital literacy skills - iPads in Education Ning

7 ways to teach digital literacy skills - iPads in Education Ning | Library collections for learning | Scoop.it

"Fostering digital literacy skills is one of the most difficult tasks for educators. Evaluating and analyzing online resources for accuracy is something that many adults struggle with – we’ve all been bamboozled before, haven’t we? But digital literacy is more than just determining if something is true or false – it’s intelligently and responsibly navigating online, it’s putting countless pieces together to form a puzzle, it’s determining what’s important and evaluating bias, etc – the list goes on. So, as an educator, how do we reinforce these crucial skills in our classrooms?"

This is so important for students to learn about, especially fake websites. One that wasn't mentioned that I like to use is the one about the California velcro crop being damaged. http://www.umbachconsulting.com/miscellany/velcro.html
