Tips for Teaching Digital & Information Literacy
We had such an exciting PD session yesterday! Naomi Bates brought so much energy to the session, and formed a connection between her and the participants throughout her presentation. As one of our participants put it, she really kept them on their toes!
Naomi highlighted a lesson she uses with her students to teach digital and information literacy skills.
Digital & Information Literacy Lesson Highlights:
- Understanding top-level domains
- How Google searches change based on the personal information they collect
- Evaluating hoax sites
- Search tips to make your Google search effective
- Using Creative Commons-licensed images through Google Images
- …and more!

You can also find Naomi on Twitter or at her blog. She is an active contributor to LM Net and has a prominent social media presence. You can continue the conversation during #txlchat, of which she is a co-founder. Thank you to Naomi and all our participants for such a great session yesterday!
