Digital literacy site hosted by OSAPAC

Source: From an announcement news item via EduGains regarding a site on Digital Literacy hosted by OSAPAC.  I have removed/bolded/bracketed some some content:

“This resource is intended to guide educators as they embed the concepts and skills of digital citizenship into their daily practice. It provides links to existing lessons, videos, interactives, and more, at various divisions, with reference to specific digital citizenship categories and criteria:

  • Critical thinking and Information Literacy
  • Creation and Credit (copyright, sourcing)
  • Presence and Communication (positive digital footprint)
  • Health and Protection (online security, privacy)

… The links to existing resources provide lesson materials, and the classroom connections provide starting points for teachers to develop lessons and assessments specific to the needs of their students. It is crucial that teachers preview the links and associated content to ensure that they are suitable for student use.  … Teachers are also reminded to review board procedures for approved technologies and request student and/or parent signatures for acceptable use. Many online tools identify age restrictions for account creations and, therefore, terms of use/service must be regularly reviewed.”

The 4 categories listed above include materials for grades: primary, junior, intermediate and secondary. And each category includes two sections:  Resources and Classroom Connections.  There is no acknowledgement on the site as to who selected these resources, nor the criteria for selecting. The resources come from many different places. As they say in their announcement, it is a starting place and you should review the content first.

    I checked out the website and it looks fantastic. However, the Digital Citizenship project is not available in French, and I could not find any FSL resources listed anywhere on the site.
    Do you know of anything similar for FSL teachers and learners?
