Digital Disruption: Funky Tools for Information Literacy

And I mean 'funky' in a good way!  In their own words, Digital Disruption  is a "free online resource that equips educators with cutting edge teaching tools.  Led by young people and designed with education, research and media professionals, each tool is designed to improve your student’s ability to critically evaluate information they encounter online."

The site provides lesson plans with accompanying videos, games and activities all centered around different aspects of information literacy, from propaganda techniques to verifying a source.

The videos are really fun (see one below), with the lessons appropriate for grades 7-10.
