Bookmark and save this site as a supplemental resource for your current lessons, as a resource for students to learn about subjects not covered in their current courses, and to differentiate learning for students. For example, provide remediation to high school students by sharing the 9th or 10th-grade literature and composition courses as a review activity or enhance your British Literature unit by assigning a module that focuses specifically on 17th, 18th, or 19th-century British literature. Consider assigning different activities to groups of students to present to their peers. Ask them to use an infographic creator such as the Canva Infographic Creator, reviewed here, as a tool for sharing important information. As a final learning extension, create a digital class book using Ourboox, reviewed here, to share understanding of the content learned. Include text, images, maps, and more in the student-created books.

Google and iKeepSafe present a three-part standards-based curriculum teaching digital literacy and citizenship for middle school students. Each class focuses on a different component of safe online use. For example, the first class explores how to evaluate the credibility of online information, the second focuses on maintaining a positive online reputation, and the final course teaches students how to avoid online tricks and scams. All courses include a printable lesson plan, student handouts, and links to videos included in the lessons. The videos are hosted on YouTube. If your district blocks YouTube, they may not be viewable.

tag(s): character education (71), digital citizenship (77)

In the Classroom

Incorporate the videos and lessons into your current digital literacy curriculum as needed, or use them as a stand-alone curriculum to address digital literacy lessons in your classroom. Engage students as you begin lessons using an interactive whiteboard such as IdeaBoardz, reviewed here, to create a digital KWL class response instead of using the printable KWL handout included in the course. Enhance instruction when using the shared videos using playposit, reviewed here, to create an interactive learning environment that places comments, questions, surveys, and polls directly onto the video. Extend learning by asking students to become the instructor using a video conversation platform such as Threadit, reviewed here. For example, ask students to use the tutorial template to create lessons to share with younger students on different aspects of digital literacy. The template is customizable and includes a step-by-step outline for creating a video tutorial featuring one or more speakers.
 This resource requires PDF reader software like Adobe Acrobat.

As mentioned in the blog, it is natural to move around through several sites when conducting research. Having a specific process to use when deciding to spend more time helps students (and adults) become more effective with their time and resources. Share this site and the poster with your students as you discuss Internet search and research methods. Print the poster and have students include it with their research journals to use as a guide. Use this flow chart as a model for students to create their own guides for research using Canva Infographic Maker, reviewed here. Create guides for following the process from start to finish of creating a research report, finding and choosing research items, or evaluating educational games.

How do you teach students to understand and build resilience against misinformation? Try using this game created by George Mason University scientist, John Cook, that uses cartoon personifications of climate science denials. The game is available to play on any browser or download the app from the Apple Store or Google Play. By teaching how others use fake experts and cherry-picking information to spread disinformation, this game engages players as they employ critical thinking skills to build points and learn how to separate fact from myth. The Teacher's Guide features all you need to know to understand how to set up the game for your class, the basic premise and information found in the game, and classroom activities that accompany the game's features.

tag(s): DAT device agnostic tool (135), digital citizenship (77), game based learning (159), internet safety (113), media literacy (87), social media (46)

In the Classroom

Add this game to your toolkit of lessons and activities when teaching Internet safety and media literacy skills. The Teachers' Guide already includes many ideas on integrating the game into classroom lessons and includes using technology to enhance and extend learning. Use these ideas as a starting point to build student engagement and help them understand the real-world applications for the information found in the game. For example, use the suggested Padlet, reviewed here, activity to compile quiz questions as suggested in Activity 5. After completing that activity, have students create their own videos, fake social media posts, or news articles that contain misinformation and create quiz questions for their peers to complete. Adobe Creative Cloud Express for Education, reviewed here, is an excellent tool for students to use when creating websites, videos, flyers, and infographics. As a final project, and to extend learning, have students share what they learned with others by producing podcasts using Buzzsprout, reviewed here, or digital books for younger students using Book Creator, reviewed here.

Digital Literacy is an important topic to teach to students, and understanding copyright is increasingly essential as all students are now publishers and creators. This site provides a free curriculum for all grade levels to teach copyright and fair use. Choose from one of the three grade-level bands - elementary, middle school, or high school to access the shared lessons. Each of the grade-level content areas includes lessons, slides, videos, and all materials needed to teach the curriculum fully. In addition to the student lessons, Copyright & Creativity also includes an on-demand teaching unit for professionals that is hosted on Canvas, reviewed here. Videos included with the lessons are hosted on YouTube.

tag(s): copyright (43), digital citizenship (77)

In the Classroom

Utilize the free curriculums offered on this site to teach students (and yourself) about the proper use of copyright. If you are unable to download the videos, this site recommends viewing the videos using View Pure, reviewed here, to remove all of the annoying "extras" included with YouTube videos. As you teach lessons and ask students to brainstorm ideas or compare and contrast information, use a graphic organizer tool such as Popplet, reviewed here, to create and save visual displays of students' ideas that include both text and images. Ask students to include a link to their Popplet organizer on Seesaw, reviewed here, along with original drawings, recordings, or other materials created during your unit. As a final project, extend learning by asking students to create a tutorial about copyright based upon their knowledge. Provide a variety of resources for creating the tutorial as a way to differentiate learning. Examples of some tools to include are Book Creator, reviewed here, or Adobe Creative Cloud Express Video Maker, reviewed here, or create an infographic using Canva Infographic Maker, reviewed here.
