The Learner's Cloud

TLC - The Learner's Cloud is a collection of content creation web apps, digital media tools, and K-12 educational links curated by Doug McIntosh. These hand-made directories are organized to assist students, parents and teachers personalize their own digital space experience. Click on the link above to enter the web site. 

Here are some general characteristics that make for a "cloud catch"-

a free app, service, tool or link. If not free, still a recommendation by me;

no advertisements, or the advertising from a free service is tolerable;

no software install required to a local hard drive; 

works across devices, operating systems and web browsers.

Digital Media Literacy in the Cloud
In terms of being a literate person, the historical definition of literacy embodies one's ability to read with comprehension and write with meaning, on paper. Since the dawn of the digital world in the 1980's, our definition of literacy has expanded to include all forms of digital media, including: text, hypertext, audio, still images and moving images. The key for educators, now and in the future is to expand and continually define literacy with the digital and social media of the times.
