What Is Visual Literacy? 7 reliability in an online environment, vocabulary for describing images, and image context. Chapter 4: Designing and Communicating with Images cov- ers how to teach image creation and modification in a library instruction session, the power of images as a storytelling tool, and how to help your students learn to evaluate their own visual creations. Chapter 5: Citation and Ethics for Images discusses image citation and other legal issues that relate to image use, like public domain, fair use, and Creative Commons. In Chapter 6: Activities and Assignments, I share six different digital-based activities you can use to teach visual literacy to your students, whether it’s in a long-term course or a one-shot library instruction session. Finally, in Chapter 7: Conclusion, I help you prepare for the ever-changing future of digital visual literacy by discussing future considerations in visual literacy studies. NOTES 1.
