Database Review: Digital Literacy
needs of today's students in an increasingly digital world is a concern for just
about every librarian and teacher. ... The site is attractive and uncluttered. ...
Articles throughout are well written and carefully crated to resonate with
middle- and high-school students. ...
Resources for teachers and librarians provide detailed information about
curriculum correlations as well as lesson plans, online training, and an
optional mechanism to monitor usage statistics. ... It's hard to judge which is
more valuable here--the excellent article content or the impressive, practical
hands-on activities. Overall, it's simply great content that is highly
recommended for school and public libraries." --Rebecca
"Digital Literacy ... is aimed at high school students, but
it can be a useful acquisition for college libraries as well. ... Important for
teachers are the correlation features that link a subject to educational
standards and grade level. Since the subject matter covered in this database is
very timely and of interest to both students and faculty, this will be a good
addition for academic libraries serving lower-level undergraduates.

Database Review: Digital
"Digital Literacy provides users with a know-how that will
allow them to maximize the usefulness of a variety of online resources and be
smart and responsible while doing so. The most significant strength of this
database is the high relevancy of the articles to today's students' needs and
the wide breadth of information covered in them. ... The strong presence of
audiovisual accompaniments will be of particular use to users who are studying
English as a second language and to those who struggle with reading
comprehension. Links to dozens of videos are embedded throughout the database
content, and Rosen also provides interactive tutorials that help with, for
example, recording a podcast."
