I thought this tutorial was not only interesting to use, but also very informative. The questions and text were all related to students in our age group which made the tasks helpful and good to know. Being able to see how you should handle certain situations and complete multiple tasks is a great thing to learn at this point in life (since we will all be facing situations such as these in the near future). Learning the options we have in life throughout certain obstacles is something I am happy to have increased my knowledge in. This tutorial will most likely help me during the future and I am glad to have completed it.

“I have been playing around with MyWorld. This is great and totally appeals to that age range in the way it is designed.”

The MyWorld product is quite impressive. As educators, we truly appreciate your organization’s work, as well as your support.

I reviewed Chapter 1 (both the walkthrough & the tutorial) - and really liked it. I must confess that there were issues & considerations raised that highlighted my own need to learn more (eg: how to learn which sites to trust, how to verify, etc). So I think it is a very good resource that would be great to be able to provide to beginning teachers to heighten their digital literacy.

MyWorld is a resource that matches a number of our NWT outcomes for ICT supported learning. Our students require opportunities to learn ethical and responsible use of ICT in an engaging manner that reflects the actual digital culture they encounter outside the school. This will always include curating the useful from the irrelevant, the credible from the misleading, the public from the private, the informative from the commercial, and the honourable from the disrespectful. Through the youthful and authentic voices in the MyWorld tutorials, students can learn to work intelligently and gain positive control of their online experiences.

My students thought it was great – so did I! They were really into all the aspects of the site and got the hang of it really quickly. It lent itself to great classroom discussions before and after using it. They were disappointed that only Chapter 1 was available to preview.

The MyWorld resource does a great job of imitating the tools that students use online and the experiences they have.

My Learning Strategies Students loved it. They found it very interactive and it asked high level questions and delves deep into the subject of media and internet literacy. Very cool graphics and navigation. I love the emailed report card. It makes evaluation easy.
