Digital Literacy & Citizenship Resources

If you are on social media, and you are not learning, not laughing, not being inspired or not networking, then you are using it wrong.Germany Kent

The only constant in this world is change. The world that many educators grew up in does not exist for our students today. We are connected to the world like never before, but the the world also has unprecedented access to us. 

It is important for educators, students, and parents to recognize that we all have a digital footprint. This footprint can be used for good or bad. I like to tell my students that the each are building a digital tattoo. I like this analogy because once we share something with the digital world it is very hard to erase it.

I believe all educators have responsibility to help our students become digitally literate and I my PLN has been helping me organize these resources.

Resources to Support Creative Student Voices #StudentVoice

Student Voice is no longer relegated to the traditional methods and pedagogy. Powerpoints, class discussion, writing, and drawing still have an important place in our classrooms, but they cannot be the only way Future Ready Teachers and Students engage in content. EdTech today provides students and educators with incredible resources to engage Student Voice

Today, Student Voice needs to be connected to a range of skills and connected resources including images, text, audio, interactive components, and video. The web and Google Apps for Education can provide students and teachers with a wealth of resources to flip the traditional a presentation model on its head.

The resources connected on this page are commonly used in education and are typically free. This is by no means a complete list. We’ve selected and categorized some of our PLN's favorite resources to support Creative Student Voice.

Most of the resources in this document have interactive help tutorials built into the resource. Additionally, a quick YouTube search will provide some nice tutorials for teachers and students.
