Keeping Digital Lessons in Perspective

Most of the time we expect that students will learn about science and social studies through a mix of media and sources . . . some digital, some print and some from nature and the community. The digital lessons we design are brief "chunks" that must fit into a larger web of activities.

If students are going to learn about storms, for example, perhaps they should begin with a brightly illustrated text or book from the library.

They might interview parents or grandparents about storm experiences.

We would add digital learning to our learning web only if we found a storm site that brought extra meaning and value to the study.

Perhaps NOAA or some other agency would be a good source of information not readily available in print?
