Blend Digital Literacy Skills With Environmental Education Lessons
Transform a traditional research assignment into a meaningful public awareness campaign.
The environmental education lessons in TechnoEarth guide students through designing an interactive infographic about an important issue. The step-by-step instructions explain how to use Google applications to produce the publication:
- Organize environmental research using a Google Docs planner template
- Create a rotating slide deck of interesting facts and stakeholders using Google Slides
- Emphasize a main point using a Google Sheets score card
- Pinpoint worst offenders or stewards on a customized map using Google My Maps
- Illustrate solutions by making original icons in Google Drawings
- Construct the infographic by arranging interactive content in Google Sites
Students build digital literacy skills by working with multiple Google applications to create the parts of the interactive infographic. Concurrently, they demonstrate their knowledge of the environmental topic. In this way science, social science, language arts, and/or geography learning objectives are integrated with ICT.
