10 Lessons in Digital Literacy

by Nik Peachey

This e-booklet contains a collection of ten lesson plans to help you develop students' digital literacies and critical thinking skills. Based around authentic infographics the lessons start by using discussion to help students access what they already know about the topics and then move on to comprehension and a range of tasks that help students to explore the validity and authenticity of the information they find. They finish with structured research and presentation tasks that encourage students to work collaboratively and share what they have learned.

The lessons cover a range of topics including:

  • Advertising and how it influences us
  • Body language and how to understand it

  • Facts about hair
  • Happiness and what effects it
  • Developing study skills
  • The environment and waste caused by clothes manufacturing
  • Daily habits of the world's wealthiest people
  • The history of marriage and weddings

  • interact and share what they know
  • develop their abilities to extract information from text and graphics
  • view information critically
  • check the credibility and validity of information
  • develop online research skills
  • use web based tools to create surveys and data visualisations
