Tech Tuesday: Internet scavenger hunts
Date posted: June 4, 2013
It’s Tech Tuesday, highlighting resources on literacy, technology, and the digital world.
Internet scavenger hunts can be used as a teaching tool for digital literacy. They teach skills such as how to find information on the Internet and how to navigate a website. The content can be customized to learner interests and skill level.
Tech Tips for Teachers, a website for adult education teachers and tutors, recently posted a health information scavenger hunt to use with adult students, particularly those with intermediate reading skills. It includes lesson ideas and variations for using MedlinePlus, an authoritative and current source of health information.
If you decide to try this, you might want to point out the interactive health tutorials and the easy-to-read index. Even if you don’t do a health information scavenger hunt, these are useful health literacy resources to know.
