Teaching Visual Literacy In the Classroom — Literacy Ideas

When we hear the jazzy term ‘visual text’ we may immediately think of its expression in the digital age, but the roots of visual texts stretch deep into our history; all the way back to our beginnings. Think of the cave paintings in Lascaux! However, today there are so many more forms of visual text to consider. From cave walls to computer screens and all points in between, students are exposed to billboards, photographs, TV, video, maps, memes, digital stories, video games, timelines, signs, political cartoons, posters, flyers, newspapers, magazines, Facebook, Instagram, movies, DVDs, and cell phones wallpaper - to name but twenty! All these can serve as the jumping off point for a lesson on visual literacy. The digital age has opened the floodgate on images spilling into our consciousness and unconsciousness alike.

Interactive Storytelling and Coding - Tech With Jen. When someone shares with me a new technology tool, I immediately try to think of ways I can use it in the classroom. There are a lot of cool apps and websites out there, but not everything is appropriate for teaching to the curriculum. One of the most important things I can do in my work with teachers is to make sure I share solid ideas to help them teach their existing standards. So when coding came on the scene, I wasn’t sure how I could incorporate it into the literacy standards. Fortunately, I learned about interactive storytelling and coding using Scratch Jr., but there isn’t a lot of ideas or products to help me implement interactive storytelling with ease.

Knowing that coding is an important skill for students to learn, I knew I had to come up with ways to teach coding skills. I chose this book because it has a circular ending.
