Iowa's list of 21st century technology literacy standards.
iKeepSafe is dedicated to the education of families on how to stay safe online. That’s why we’ve teamed up with Google to develop curriculum that educators can use in the classroom to teach what it means to be a responsible digital citizen.
The curriculum is designed to be interactive, discussion filled and allow students to learn through hands-on and scenario activities. Each workshop contains a resource booklet for both educators and students that can be downloaded in PDF form, presentations to accompany the lesson and animated videos to help frame the conversation
I like this idea for having students evaluate the media they are using:
students, for example, can ask:
Who created or paid for the message?Why was it created?Who is the message designed to reach?How does the message capture the audience's attention? How might different people understand this message differently?What values or points of view are included or excluded and why? Where can I find out more to verify the information?What can I do with this information?
Welcome to Literacyhead! We gather visual art and organize it in reading and writing lessons and tools. From comprehension strategies to writing workshop mini-lessons, Literacyhead uses visual art to teach reading and writing standards in ways that are engaging and accessible to students with different needs.
Vocabulary words with stunning photography to explain them! You could even have students take their own vocab list and look up pictures on Flickr or take their own photos.
