Dear Edulist subscriber (sorry for crossposts) 

Visual literacy is something all students and teachers need to be familiar with. Students can produce digital visual content in a few minutes with our mobile devices but is it great content? Mobile phones, flip cameras, iPhones and the iPod Touch are all pervasive and visual information is everywhere online. The importance of being visually literate cannot be overstated. It is for this reason that VITTA is conducting the 1 in 1 competition again this year. Find out how you can use the creation of digital content to teach Visual Literacy with mobile technologies in your classroom. 

Who is this for? 

Teachers of any subject and any year level can incoprporate thye teaching of visual literacy though mobile devices into their classes. It is especially suitable for teachers of Secondary English and humanities students and all primary students.
