How Do We Teach Digital Literacy to Digital Natives? - Edudemic | 21st Century Teacher | Scoop.it
Young people today are instant messengers, gamers, photo sharers and supreme multitaskers. But while they use the technology tools available to them 24/7, they are struggling to sort fact from fiction, think critically, decipher cultural inferences, detect commercial intent and analyze social implications. All of which makes them extremely vulnerable to the overwhelming amount of information they have access to

From the post: "It is our job as educators and content producers to encourage kids to be capable, global citizens in a digital age. Integrating a news story into your classroom everyday not only sparks important conversations, but encourages students to create and analyze their own media responses, provides a basis for asking questions and is a seamless, natural way to incorporate CCSS nonfiction content into your daily lesson plan."

Stop trying to figure out if screentime is good for students

Stop trying to figure out if screentime is good for students | 21st Century Teacher | Scoop.it

The fact that we still discuss this is ludicrous. Simply ask yourself, “Is school is supposed to be preparing students for career success?” Of course! There are few careers where you would hear a debate about the need for access to technology. It’s a no-brainer that to be successful in the world, instant access to knowledge, people, and tools of communication are necessary. This is no different in our schools.

WordyNerdBird's insight:

Education is not just about equipping students with knowledge - it's also about life skills and understandings. 

Demonstrating a responsible approach to skills, knowledge and the associated screen time is vital if we want to prepare our students for life beyond school.

The Role Of Student Choice In Connected Classrooms - Edudemic

The Role Of Student Choice In Connected Classrooms - Edudemic | 21st Century Teacher | Scoop.it

Our mainstream educational machine is fueled by the idea that adults know best—that adults must impart their knowledge to prepare students for a demanding world. Our responsibility as teachers is to teach students for their own good…a “good” that more and more of us are having difficulty understanding.

Some good points here about getting students invested in their own learning and giving them more of a voice.

Great article. I think we know that experts and expertise reside beyond the teacher.

Rethinking Education for the 21st Century - Naveen Jain - Voices ... | 21st Century Teacher | Scoop.it

WordyNerdBird's insight:

I agree that education must become more flexible, more fluid and more dynamic if we are to meet the needs of both our students now and the students of the future. 
while this has been a very challenging idea for many of my colleagues,  I have enjoyed being able to openly embrace technology through the use of virtual classrooms, blogs, collection/curatrion sites, and e-communications.

 

The surprise for me has been the resistance from some of my students to "go digital". Some of them still prefer to remain "old-school" in the way they learn and work. 

That's where I have to be flexible and remember to lead my students into this new world of learning, rather than try to push or drag them, kicking and screaming, into a place where they will resent having to go.

Using Bloom's Taxonomy In The 21st Century: 4 Strategies For Teaching

Using Bloom's Taxonomy In The 21st Century: 4 Strategies For Teaching | 21st Century Teacher | Scoop.it

For decades, education reform has been focused on curriculum, assessment, instruction, and more recently standards, and data, with these efforts only bleeding over into how students think briefly, and by chance. This means that the focus of finite teacher and school resources are not on promoting thinking and understanding, but rather what kinds of things students are going to be thinking about and how they’ll prove they understand them.

A good review on teaching approaches used in a 21st century teaching and learning  environment.

John R. Walkup's curator insight, January 12, 2014 2:25 PM

A good discussion of Bloom's Taxonomy that includes useful cautionary discussions about the potential misuse of digital technology. I especially liked the mention about improper strategies for teaching introverts, an issue that is often glossed over in our current zest for group activities.

VISUAL LITERACY

Demonstrate the ability to interpret, recognize, appreciate, and understand information presented through visible actions, objects and symbols, natural or man-made

 

Peter Evans's curator insight, November 26, 2013 8:47 AM

I'd suggest a lot of the more innovative university programmes are already doing much of what is suggested here. One thing to emphasise is supporting students to use digital tools specifically for learning as they generally already know how to use these tools. In otherwords, while students may often be digitally competent, they are often less digitally literate in terms of learning processes. Also, what refer to PDAs - surely old tech?

Miep Carstensen's curator insight, December 1, 2013 11:14 PM

Sound advice for teachers to incorprate these core competencies in their teaching programmes.

Not research per se, but an e-book aimed at training teachers. Includes units on using apps and tools and fpcsing in general on the teaching of writing in the so-called 'digital age'.

 

No mere pamhplet either, this is a proper book!
