Canva- A Great Web Tool for Creating Mini-posters for Class ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Tools for parents supporting students with the internet | Scoop.it

"Canva is another web tool you can use with your students to create mini-posters for your class. Canva is easy to use and has user friendly interface. The process of creating a visual through Canva is as simple as drag and drop. Canva provides you with a wide variety of images and clip arts that you can modify to suit your purposes. You can even upload your own images to use as background in your graphics."

The name really says it all. Different internet tools are introduced in a wait for it...NUTSHELL. The tabs offer other basic introductions to other topics as well.

Planet Nutshell tells stories through animation. Their website provides access to videos in three areas:

* Climate Change - a series of 11 videos that explore issues in climate change including What is Climate, Too Much Carbon Dioxide and How the World can Tackle Climate Change. In addition to the series there is also a list of resources used to create the series.

* NetSafe is a series of videos that explore issues that students may experience online. The videos are divided into grade levels. There are four videos for Grade K - 3 that explore What is the Internet?, What is Personal Information?, Tell an Adult, and Be Kind Online. For Grades 4 - 6 you will find five videos including " Cyberbullies are No Fun!, Understanding Online "Friends", and Posting Pictures Online. Five videos are available for Grades 7 - 12 including How to Stop Cyberbullying, Protect Your Personal Information and Say No to "Sexting".  Several other videos cover Distracted Driving, Public WiFi Network Safety and Mobile Location Privacy. These videos also allow you to download the transcript.

* A third category is Borrow Wisely that discusses FAFSA, Student Loans, and Financial Aid.

It appears that they continue to create videos for education (as well as businesses).

6 Days and 78 Resources for Digital Literacy Internet Safety

6 Days and 78 Resources for Digital Literacy Internet Safety | Tools for parents supporting students with the internet | Scoop.it

"Internet Safety and Digital Citizenship are important topics ... it is so integral to what our kids do while they are at school.  Whether or not you have a 1:1 program, these are topics that shouldn’t be overlooked!  Don’t assume that because your students are fairly savvy when it comes to learning technology, that they will automatically pick up on digital literacy...it is essential that parents learn about digital literacy so that they can echo and enforce good technology use at home"

Kat Zimmermann's insight:

This is an entire lesson plan for a school community that has BYOD.  It would be useful (and slightly overwhelming) for educators and parents to look through to have a better grasp on how to support their students.

Motherloade of information. sometimes sites like these also serve us well as sub plans too.

Looks better for K - 8 teachers than high school (myself).  I do like the week plan of 5 days of focus on digital literacy!

Melissa Marshall's curator insight, October 25, 2014 10:46 AM

This is an excellent collection of resources, split into age groups and a suggested order of activities. It is an American site, but I like how they have picked up on the cybersmart resource put out by the Australian Government. I would add another one to the list: the resources made by CommonSense Media. These are great too, and Prendiville's digital citizenship unit is based on them.
