I stumbled across a post from a few years ago asking "How do we know if it's real or fake news?" that prompted me to check out what resources are out there to help develop information literacy skills in learners.
Based on some looking around, we've compiled them in a blogpost that provides a range of resources from GCFLearnFree.org, iCivics, ProCon.org, and Stanford History Education Group. All of these free resources provide opportunities for developing information + media literacy skills in a variety of ways—from bite-sized introductions of concepts to full-scale game simulations! The blog gives brief overviews of each and how they might be used with students.
In the near future, CrowdED Learning intends to provide CCRS alignments to iCivics, who in addition to having a great game mentioned in the blog also has an impressive number of teacher lessons and resources.
Does anyone use any of the resources I listed with their students? I'd love to learn more about how educators are using these resources to develop concepts of information literacy with their learners.
