Internet and online safety (e-safety) and digital literacy are huge issues that students need to understand and learn about. A member of my PLN shared this site with me yesterday. "E-Safety Resources – supporting teaching Digital Literacy" is a site in the UK that has a huge collection of resources to help educators teach, and students to learn, about internet safety and digital literacy. There links to simulations for social media issues, videos from Common Craft, games, lesson resources and many other sites and resources for digital literacy and safety. Every teacher should discuss digital literacy and online safety with their students and this site has the resources to help them do that.
Young people are creating and publishing their own writing, music, videos, and artwork. They live in a world where information is easily available to copy, paste, and remix. The lessons in this unit address students' rights and responsibilities about respecting creative work, as well as explore topics ranging from copyright to fair use. Students reflect on the ethics of using creative work from others, and they are encouraged to celebrate their role as 21st-century creative artists. <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
Updated February 2013 Adopted by the NCTE Executive Committee, February 15, 2008 Literacy has always been a collection of cultural and communicative practices shared among members of particular groups. As society and technology change, so does literacy. Because technology has increased the intensity and complexity of literate environments, the 21st century demands that a literate person possess a wide range of abilities and competencies, many literacies. These literacies are multiple, dynamic, and malleable. As in the past, they are inextricably linked with particular histories, life possibilities, and social trajectories of individuals and groups.
