In my role as a Digital Learning Facilitator, I am asked by teachers to support them in various ways; in the planning stages, in class tech support or for small lesson sessions. I love doing all of those and am excited when a teacher steps into a discomfort zone to try something new. Along the way, I try and encourage students (and teachers) to think of audience and copyright when creating. Two of my favourite websites are Pixabay and Pexels which enable students to use copyright free images. I also encourage students to create their own images.
What I didn’t consider was that I was actually walking down the path of teaching digital literacy and that I still had quite a ways to go until I read this great article.
Time for me to add to my skill set and promote more digital literacy.
