The Digital Image Guide (DIG) Method is a resource to help students critically evaluate images. The lesson typically takes a 60 minute class period but can be extended if you have additional time. Originally created by a librarian for other librarians, this teaching resource can be modified to fit most disciplines for most age ranges. Anywhere from 10-40 students/participants is ideal.
