In this Chapter, I make the link between social media and the Curriculum. Specifically, how can social media be used in the service of Digital Leadership when it comes to literacy, media literacy (fake and alternative facts), as well as career studies and entrepreneurship.
Live website I use to teach Digital Leadership and Careers studies (changes constantly as I continue to work with students).
Beyond the Chapter
Here is a hyperdoc I adapted to teach fake news in a high school class.
Web Literacy resource shared by Donna Fry shows how many skills kids are actually achieving when they engage in using technology and social media to learn.
The Critical Media Project has great resources to assist you with teaching media literacy. It is aligned to the Common Core. http://www.criticalmediaproject.org/resources/common-core/
The Media Literacy website provides an excellent starting point for exploring the Media Triangle and lessons connected to deconstructing media.
