So much eye candy in one place, amazing art, photography and information in one place. Beautifully presented! Would be very valuable in a history, art or humanities classroom.

How to Infuse Digital Literacy Throughout the Curriculum

How to Infuse Digital Literacy Throughout the Curriculum | Reading |

In our emerging digital world, a new medium of exchange has developed: online engagement, especially via social media. Effectively engaging online requires a myriad of skills that we strive to foster in school – effective written communication, brevity and civility. These components are often highlighted in Digital Citizenship programs, but in tradition-bound K12 education, we often deride social media as trite or ineffective.

Interesting post with good ideas.

LibrarianLand's curator insight, April 7, 2014 2:53 PM

Many students still do not understand the limitations of finding information on the free web. Google is about the extent of it and if it isn't found in the first few results, it does not exist or is too hard to find (or worse still, what is found must be "it.").


From article: "We need to ensure that they know how to evaluate a website, a blog post, a tweet, a Facebook entry. These evaluative skills transfer cross curricularly and prepare students for the broader world of online communication."

Google Drive with its many functionalities works now the best for me. For example collaboration on documents is very smooth, think about many combinations: teacher-student, student-student, supervisor-supervisee...

It’s time to share your presentation! Whether you’re delivering a business proposal to a client, an academic presentation to your professor, or even showing a personal photo slide to your grandmother, you have to ensure that your visuals can be clearly seen by your audience.

Convierte tus presentaciones Powerpoint en vídeos. En las versiones Powerpoint 2013 y 2010 se realiza de forma directa. En versiones anteriores hay que hecer unos pasos previos.
