Reviews

Digital and Media Literacy in the Age of the Internet provides guidance for teachers who recognize they have had a very different learning experience than their students. There are statistics on screen time, social media use, what you should watch out for, and ways to support young people in becoming responsible content creators. There's advice on what you should know about privacy, laws, and holding companies accountable. There's information on topics such the implications of teaching with technological developments like the Internet of Things. There's also material to help teachers understand and explain to parents what their children should know at each grade level. This includes essential questions written in plain language to help guide student learning. Mary Beth Hertz's book provides practical examples, lessons, research, and the benefits and challenges teachers face in the exciting and always-changing landscape of digital teaching and learning.--Lisa Nielsen, Public School Educator & Author, The Innovative Educator, @InnovativeEdu
With thorough research and practical lesson ideas, Mary Beth Hertz gives educators a foundation for building media literacy skills in today's classroom.--Erin Wilkey Oh, Executive Editor, Common Sense Education
As the education space becomes increasingly crowded and confused with advice on the best ways to teach in the digital age, Mary Beth's work stands out in relief. Instead of acronyms and buzz phrases, this book delivers straightforward definitions and instruction based off the edtech gold standards from the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE). From fake news to students' privacy, educators should consider this a terrific primer for dealing with digital literacy.--Kevin Hogan, Managing Director of Content, Tech & Learning
