From Education Scotland National Improvement Hub “What digital learning might look like”:

“Use the web (with adult support) to search for topical keywords (from text on cards/labels) to search for media in relation to the keyword, for example: “apples”, “flour”, “wheat”. Learners might then discuss the types of results; this could be text, audio, images or videos. The media found in the search could then be used to support discussion, such as talking about size,shape or colour of fruits found in a search
Develop more independence to perform web searches, using smart devices or services such as: Google Home, Apple’s Siri, Amazon Alexa, for example“Hey Google, how do you make bread?”

Begins to recognise that information & materials belong to people e.g. we put our names on our work Recognise that people can share their own pictures & information using the internet.

Begin to develop awareness of the need to ask permission when using other people’s materials.

With support, begin to question & talk about who owns or who made the materials that we find & whether we are allowed to use it e.g. is it ok to copy & use other people’s work?
