Connecting dots for digital learning and teaching

Literacy Shed – Visual Resources for Literacy

The Literacy Shed is a “treasure trove”  for literacy education.  It’s the home to a wealth of visual resources – video clips or pictures –  that the site owner has collected over his 10 year career as a primary school teacher. It can help you improve your students literacy and  critical thinking skills.

The curated contents are divided into sheds and each shed has animated stories in video clips accompanied by a teaching idea that includes discussion questions and writing prompts. Most of the visual resources are cute, they inspire kids’ imagination. Some pictures make you smile. Some pictures speak something to us. Visual images also provoke your thinking. There are hundreds of materials to choose from.  It also features a section called resource of the week and blog of the week.

A picture is worth a thousand words. From many classes in school years I only remember the visualized images from pictures or video clips.
