Thinking Critically through Digital Media

Thinking Critically through Digital Media | Tools for Teachers & Learners | Scoop.it

Through the use of these materials I hope teachers can develop more actively and intellectually critical students who approach digital media with the ability not only to comprehend and consume information but also understand the possible bias, motivation and underlying values of those creating the information. I believe these skills and abilities are key to creating a more tolerant, open-minded and critically aware global society.

10 Free Tools for Building Blended & Online Learning

10 Free Tools for Building Blended & Online Learning | Tools for Teachers & Learners | Scoop.it
Remember though that finding the right tool is important, but how you structure and design interaction with the content is way more important. Taking classroom activities and materials and placing them on a web-based platform and expecting them to work is sure way to disappoint students. You need to think carefully about how the student will engage with the materials and how the materials relate to each other to ensure that your materials don’t just test the students’ knowledge and abilities, but that they guide and enable the student to hypothesise and make and confirm deductions in order to encourage deeper levels of autonomous learning.
Nik Peachey's insight:

This is a collection of free / freemium tools that you can use to develop online or blended learning.
