The 5 Resources Model of Critical Digital Literacy

The 5 Resources Model of Critical Digital Literacy | Social Media Networking in Education Hughes | Scoop.it

The 5 Resources Model provides a framework to articulate the scope and dimensions of digital literacies. It is based on an established model of literacy which is underpinned by critical perspectives (the Four Resources Model of Critical Literacy, after Luke & Freebody). It has been adapted for the digital context.

Well-known K-12 tech expert, Kathy Schrock, presents a helpful list, mostly aimed at K-12 folks, but the list offers a model for thinking about iPad use in the classroom.

Thorough research, practical guides and pedegogy to iPads.

This is a really great idea and needs to be used in schools. We see more issues today than ever with student use of the digital world. It's important they are educated and prepared to use the tools properly.
