Task 1 - Digital Literacy resources
The SWGfl resources are excellent. The lesson activities challenge pupils to think critically about the way they use digital resources, and to think about the ethics of decisions they make. Activities for older pupils discuss issues such as propaganda, celebrity and privacy - all issues that are in the media at the moment and that young people need to be aware of. These resources would be very useful as part of the ICT and PSE curriculum at my school. The Youth and Media resources would be more useful for starter/plenary activities rather than as the core of a lesson or series of lessons. We teach digital literacy in a very traditional way a the moment; Year 7 make a leaflet about Internet Safety, all other year groups get an hour of Internet Safety per year through PSE sessions. These resources could definitely contribute to developing our current practice.
