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

7 ways to teach digital literacy skills - iPads in Education Ning | Bibliotecas Escolares - School Libraries | 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?"

Thanks for that link John! Been searching for a new one since the original went down. I've updated my Web Search and Verification page on my wiki with it. http://joevans.pbworks.com/w/page/12725920/Web%20Search%20and%20Verification You may find some other sites of use there too! Cheers!
