Digital Literacy in the ELA Classroom

March 02, 2018

Can your students spot fake news?  Can they tell the difference between a reliable and an unreliable website? This #2ndaryELA Twitter chat was all about digital literacy. Middle school and high school English Language Arts teachers discussed what it means to teach digital literacy: teach basic computer use, intellectual property awareness, and more, and how they connect those lessons with the rest of their curriculum. Read through the chat for ideas to implement in your own classroom.

Hope you'll join us next week for another chat. We'd also love for you to join our 2ndaryELA Facebook group (even if you aren't on Twitter). 2ndaryELA is a group of middle and high school English Language Arts teachers looking to share ideas and best practices. This group is an extension of our Twitter chat and a place for collaboration, questions, and encouragement. Feel free to post teaching ideas, success stories, links, photos, etc. that will enhance our instruction.
