The 5 Resources Model of Critical Digital Literacy

The 5 Resources Model of Critical Digital Literacy | Teacher-Librarian | 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.

Add "source:life" to any Google image search and search only the LIFE photo archive. For example: computer source:life "

Floyd Pentlin's curator insight, October 4, 2013 3:47 PM

A key to making sure good practices stick is to teach research skills when kids need them. “If it’s not embedded with instruction it will have no relevance to the learner,” said Michelle Luhtala, Library Department Chair at New Canaan High School in Connecticut during an edWeb webinar (who also leads Banned Website Awareness Day). She doesn’t swoop into a sophomore history class and guest lecture on how to research on the web. “If it’s taught separately, in isolation from the content, I don’t think the kids are going to take the learning seriously,” Luhtala said.

Five Essentials To Create Connected Students (EdSurge News)

Five Essentials To Create Connected Students (EdSurge News) | Teacher-Librarian | Scoop.it

"But being connected isn’t just for socializing; it’s a life skill. When untrained students get online, they treat academic writing online as if it were social media. They write sloppily and don't think of hyperlinking. If they do, it is often a long pasted link instead of a contextual link. In this connected world, there are invisibly disconnected kids, disconnected from the knowledge they need to be successful."
