Digital Materials Evaluation: Digital Resources and Metaliteracy

This guide will provide information regarding the evaluation of different digital resources.

Evaluating Materials for the 21st Century Student.

Metaliteracy and Digital Resource Evaluation:

The prevalent availability of digital materials provides educators with an opportunity to engage students in the classroom with a multitude of non-traditional learning resources that are available at little to no cost to the student or educator. Conversely, this overwhelming availability of resources presents a new set of challenges for educators as the evaluation and integration of these requires a pluralistic set of established and emergent literacies- i.e. Metaliteracy.

This new set of literacies reflect the need to evaluate resources in regard to the immersive participatory online environment of the 21st century educator and student.
