Do Your Students Know How To Search?

Do Your Students Know How To Search? | 21st century learning and education | Scoop.it
There is a new digital divide on the horizon. It is not based around who has devices and who does not, but instead the new digital divide will be based around students who know how to effectively find and curate information and those who do not.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, October 17, 2013 1:00 PM

Only 15% of students are considered power users who can transfer their tech skills from place to place. The divide is not on the horizon. It is with us.

rwestby's curator insight, October 20, 2013 9:26 PM

Searching is not just for kids - Internet search skills are something needed even for adults.

Eileen Forsyth's curator insight, January 17, 2014 12:22 PM

Excellent, truly current information about teaching students to search and curate well. Use this for independent study!

Leaders need to learn continually, as well as help others continue learning.

Allan Carrington's comment, July 8, 2013 8:01 PM
Carolyn said: "Pretty cool graphic" Thanks for the encouragement. Idea: Would it work and be useful for a Padagogy Wheel to be customised for the needs of those with Dyslexia. Could we change action verbs, activities and App selections for each Cognitive Domain Category as well as specialised PD for teachers on how to design interactions with those apps to achieve Redefinition in the SAMR model. Also PD about how to motivate these learners. Hmmmm could that be a great learning design model to help these learners? .... what do you think?
