Digital Explorers

Digital Explorers is a digital literacy unit that I designed for 9 – 12 grade students to be delivered in an online or (ideally) hybrid manner. It was created as an assignment for the course EDU 6330, Digital Media Literacy at Northeastern University and was inspired by the work of Mike Caulfield’s Digital Polarization initiative and utilizes his only text “Web Literacy for Student Fact Checkers” as the class text.

Here is a brief video overview of the project:

And here’s the full unit plan.
