MediaSmarts: Teacher Resources

We originally featured this collection from MediaSmarts in the 8-18-2015 Scout Report, and since then they have added a Digital Literacy 101 classroom guide along with other helpful resources.

MediaSmarts is a Canadian not-for-profit that focuses its efforts on digital and media literacy, hoping to help "children and youth have the critical thinking skills to engage with media as active and informed digital citizens." The Teacher Resources section is packed with lesson plans, activities, and other resources for teachers who would like to help their students understand digital technology in healthy and balanced ways. Educators may like to begin with the Find Lessons & Resources section, where they can search the database according to grade, resource type, topic, and media type. For instance, a reader might search for a lesson plan designed to address video games that is suitable for an audience of eighth-graders. In this case, the search returns three different lesson plans, including a lesson on violence and video games. The Recommended Resources section is also useful, especially the workshop "Respecting Yourself and Others Online."
