Description

This is a bundle of my 4 digital literacy PowerPoints and corresponding activities.

Digital Citizenship PowerPoint Lesson: Teach your students what it means to be a digital citizen.

What is included:

  • 9 slide PowerPoint introduction/lesson
  • 2 assessments
  • 5 digital citizenship posters
  • Digital citizenship pledge

This is a very basic introduction to what it means to be a good digital citizen. A good digital citizen is responsible, respectful, careful and smart, sensible and polite. There is also a slide for password tips. The PowerPoint cannot be edited. There is also a set of posters and 2 assessment worksheets.

Works Cited and Plagiarism Activities: Teach your students about copyright, plagiarism and how to cite their sources.

What is included:

  • 22 slide PowerPoint introduction
  • 3 Review Worksheets
  • 18 practice task cards (comes in a .pdf document and an editable PowerPoint file)

The PowerPoint introduction teaches students what copyright and plagiarism are and why it is important to give credit for using other’s work and ideas. It reviews the vocabulary terms citation, source, work cited and bibliography. There are two separate slides for the terms works cited and bibliography. This is because I have found that some schools teach one term and not the other. This way you can choose which slide to use. The last 7 slides are examples of how to create a citation for different kinds of sources (book, website, print encyclopedia, online encyclopedia, magazine, newspaper and online database). The text on these slides can be edited. Again, this is because not every school teaches the same format for citations. You can edit the text to whatever you need it to say. These 7 slides are the only slides that can be edited.

The task cards are to review the information that is in the PowerPoint. The questions ask students to identify parts of a citation, identify mistakes or missing information in a citation. There are also a few questions about the importance of citing your sources and why plagiarism is wrong. There is an answer key included.
The task cards can be used in a variety of ways. You can use them as a center activity, a partner activity, in small groups, as a scoot game, whole-class instruction, practice and review or for fast finishers. They can be used in a classroom or a library setting. 

The worksheets can be used as a review or assessment to check the student's understanding of the concepts.

Evaluating Websites PowerPoint and Activities: Teach your students how to evaluate and rate websites based on the 5 W's criteria: who, what, where, when and why.

What is included:

  • 13 slide PowerPoint introduction/lesson
  • 3 worksheets for students to use to evaluate websites
  • 7 posters about the 5 W's
  • Bookmarks to hand out with the 5 W's rule on them

The PowerPoint introduction teaches students the basics of website evaluation and why it's important. There is a slide with vocabulary words and one slide for each of the rules. The PowerPoint cannot be edited.

I also included a list of hoax websites that you can use with students to illustrate the importance of website evaluation. There is also a list of credible websites that you can use for comparison. There are links to 2 videos that I have used in the past that also review the topic.

The worksheets can be used as a review or assessment to check the student's understanding of the concepts.
