10 Lessons in Digital Literacy | PeacheyPublications.com | Tools for Teachers & Learners | Scoop.it

This e-booklet contains a collection of ten lesson plans to help you develop students' digital literacies and critical thinking skills. Based around authentic infographics the lessons start by using discussion to help students access what they already know about the topics and then move on to comprehension and a range of tasks that help students to explore the validity and authenticity of the information they find. They finish with structured research and presentation tasks that encourage students to work collaboratively and share what they have learned.

Nik Peachey's insight:

My ebook with lesson plans and photocopiable materials.

Memory Machines: Learning, Knowing, and Technological Change

Memory Machines: Learning, Knowing, and Technological Change | Tools for Teachers & Learners | Scoop.it

We might live in a time of digital abundance, but our digital memories – our personal memories and our collective memories – are incredibly brittle. We might be told we’re living in a time of rapid technological change, but we are also living in a period of rapid digital data decay, of the potential loss of knowledge, the potential loss of personal and collective memory.
