Media literacy for preschoolers: Explaining how the media work

Media literacy for preschoolers: Explaining how the media work | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

"Although most research about media literacy focuses on children’s classroom experiences, I believe it’s never too early to begin fostering media literacy. Media literacy can happen at home. Parents can talk with their preschoolers about the media in age-appropriate ways, giving them tools to help them think critically."

What exactly is critical thinking? | Climate Etc.

by Judith Curry Everyone applauds the idea of critical thinking, and liberal arts colleges often make their ability to teach critical thinking a key selling point. But no one seems to define what they mean by that term.

What the iPad (and other technology) can’t replace in education

We have become focused so much on new technological devices and what they can do, we forget what they can’t, and that’s a problem when it comes to education.

  John Curran: "One of the current hot topics in e-learning is curation. But what exactly is curation?"

 

John does a fine job of identifying the important aspects of curation: Interpretation, story-telling and freshness  are 3 of these elements. 

 

He continues on to identify the skills needed for effective curation:

 

Finding

Filtering

Grading (selecting items appropriate for the audience)

Synthesising

Summarising

Signposting ("Signposting to the bits they need or are interested in")

Hi,Nancy. I'm a student of Beijing Normal University and am very much interested in content curation. I was wondering do you know if there are any academic papers about content curation? I failed to find any. If you know, please tell me. Thanks a lot~ Have a nice day!

Ryan McDonough's curator insight, July 7, 2014 5:09 PM

More evidence to support how games in the classroom improve student performance and learning retention. Being user-friendly, personalizing instruction, increasing engagement, and familiarity to technology based applications are reasons cited for their effectiveness. Games stimulate the brain, grabs and focuses attention, and motivate learning through stimulation, and allowing the user to take ownership by controlling their own actions. Infographics like this are a great tool to display on your classroom website or show at conferences. There's always going to be doubters when they hear the name "games" in school.
