Global Perspectives on Youth and Digital Media

Global Perspectives on Youth and Digital Media | Silvana Richardson | Scoop.it

The contributions in this book reflect the diversity of ideas and perspectives that form the core and spirit of Digitally Connected. Some of the reflection pieces are closely connected to issues discussed at the symposium, others reflect more generally on personal observations and/or opinions, or highlight and discuss insights and learnings from specific studies or concrete projects. By making these reflection pieces and the youth work available to the expanding Digitally Connected network as well as the public at large, we hope to continue and further stimulate the global conversation about both the challenges and opportunities children and youth encounter in the digital environment.

Immigrants Do Want to Learn English: Where Is The Funding?

Immigrants Do Want to Learn English: Where Is The Funding? | Silvana Richardson | Scoop.it
What occurs to me is that in all the rhetoric, Sajid Javid has forgotten something very simple. Where is the government funding and access for keen families and individuals to learn English if they should wish it? While the will may be there from immigrant families, the financial ability to attend classes may not be.
Silvana Richardson's insight:

The author makes a very valid point about funding for ESOL classes.

The Science of Classroom Design [Infographic]

Studies show that the quality of your classroom environment is a significant determinant of student learning. Classrooms that are painted with color, lighted with full-spectrum lighting, and devoid of visual noise result in improved academic performance and decreased disruptive, off-task behavior.

This article presents the results of a survey into student attitudes towards the use of L1 in class and some suggestions for using the L1 and its culture as a learning resource.
Silvana Richardson's insight:

While the first section is not up-to-date  in terms of current thinking about the use of the students' L1 in EFL classrooms, the second part of the article- which presents the results of a survey into student attitudes towards the use of L1 in class- is really worth reading.

So much information and so little time!  This infographic and webpage provide clear guidance that teachers can use to help their students be more selective about the sources they choose to use.  

ICTE Solutions Australia's curator insight, December 28, 2015 11:43 PM

In an ICT integrated society, it is important that people are information literate. That means being able to search for and analyse information for their benefits. As websites on the Internet become more popular teachers need to teach their students the right skills and knowledge so that their students are able to become information literate. Any guide therefore, that will assist teachers in doing so is worth using as a resource as reference for both teachers and students to use.
