Digital Literacy | Dijital Okuryazarlık

Digital Literacy | Dijital Okuryazarlık | A little bit of ELT combined with Technology and Distance Learning | Scoop.it

What is Digital Literacy?

Technology has changed the way we live. Knowing how to use these technologies for personal and professional productivity is essential in today’s society. This skill set must reach beyond understanding the “point and click” within Microsoft Office. To be digitally literate, one must understand computer basics, have knowledge of applications and web technologies and a realization of when to use these skills to create a solution.

 

DIGITAL LITERACY CONSISTS OF THREE ELEMENTS:

FOUNDATIONAL KNOWLEDGE

Foundational Knowledge includes many concepts that are found within the Computer Concepts course. Examples of these concepts include understanding computer hardware & software, networks & internet and computer maintenance and security.

 

CONTEMPORARY SKILLS

Understanding what tools and applications are available and how to use them effectively is a critical need in our modern business environment. Many current courses focus on Microsoft Office applications skills. However, employers are looking for more than just applications skills but also social media and Web 2.0 skills.

 

CRITICAL THINKING ABILITY

Students need to know how to analyze a situation, which skills to apply and how to use them.

 

 

--------------------------------------------------

Dijital Okuryazarlık Nedir?

Teknoloji yaşama biçimimizi de değiştiriyor. Günümüz toplumunda teknolojiyi günlük ve iş yaşantılarımızda nasıl kullanılacağını bilmek önemli bir beceri haline geldi. MS Office uygulamasında birkaç tıkla birşeyler üretmekten öte bir konu artık bu. Dijital okuryazar olabilen kişi; bilgisayarın temel bilgisine sahip, yazılım ve özellikle web teknolojilerine çözüm üretebilecek kadar kullanabilecek kadar hakim olabilmeli.

 

Dijital Okuryazarlığın temel olarak üç bölümden oluştuğu ve bunların;

1- Temel bilgisayar bilgisi (donanım, yazılım, ağ ve internet, güvenlik)

2- Çağcıl beceriler (modern iş dünyasının gerektirdiği sosyal medya, web 2.0 becerileri; yalnızca yazılım kullanabilme becerilerinden daha fazlası)

3- Eleştirel Düşünme Becerisi (durum analizi yapabilme ve duruma uygun becerilerin kullanım becerileri)

When You Are On The Go, Less Is Always More: Curated Computing Is The Future of Portable Devices

Robin Good: The age of curated UI design for portable devices is already here.

 

But I had never thought of it this way. Until I ran into this interesting video clip from Sarah Rotman (back from May 2010) that made me think about curation in the realm of UI and content delivery design. 

 

"Forrester Research Analyst Sarah Rotman Epps talks about how Apple's iPad and other tablet devices will usher in a new era of personal computing.

 

Forrester Research calls this "Curated Computing"-- a mode of computing where choice is constrained to deliver less complex, more relevant experiences.

 

There's more at stake here than just tablets: Curated Computing will be the dominant design principle behind future form factors like wearable devices.

 

Product strategists that don't want to cede the future of devices to Apple should start thinking like museum curators and editors: Sometimes less is more." 

 

 

Is this really about "curation"?

 

What's your take on this?

 

Read more on the original "curated computing" Forrester concept here: http://blogs.forrester.com/sarah_rotman_epps/10-05-14-curated_computing_designing_for_the_post_ipad_era

Social Media Belongs in the Classroom

Social Media Belongs in the Classroom | A little bit of ELT combined with Technology and Distance Learning | Scoop.it

Teachers who resist using social media in the classroom are stripping their students of an essential component of their future success. Avoiding – or worse, banning – social media platforms for students prohibits them from being successful professionals in fields like accounting, chemistry, the arts and more.

How college professors use Facebook. | A little bit of ELT combined with Technology and Distance Learning | Scoop.it

It's a known fact that students are Facebook-obsessed. But a new survey shows that teachers might rival their younger counterparts when it comes to social media use. Nearly all professors are active on social media, and 80% of them use it as a teaching tool. Check out the infographic below to learn how college faculty are using social media both personally and professionally.

40 Social Media Curation Sites and Tools

40 Social Media Curation Sites and Tools | A little bit of ELT combined with Technology and Distance Learning | Scoop.it

Last month I shared 40+ networks that you could consider depending on your niche or interests. As part of my commitment to this community, I shared that I will expand on this list througout 2012. So here is the first addition to that build! The topic- Curation!I thought I would focus on curation because a) I have a favorite site and b) there has been a lot of “press” on Pinterest as a curation tool and as a result I thought the timing was right. However before I list the sites lets talk curation.

 

What is social media curation?

 

Today, with the exponential growth of social networks and blogs, it can be overwhelming searching for information on the internet. As a result, the act of filtering, selecting, reviewing and providing commentary with a perspective on an article, or collection of articles, have become increasingly important. This is known as social media curation. Recently, I had posed the question : What is a social media curator” on Linkedin.

Thanks Everyone for this feedback. Just wonderful.

Robin- absolutely appreciated the feedback. I did visit all the sites to ensure that they were still in operation however missed some very important details. So thank you so much for providing the clarification needed. :))
Carey Leahy's comment, January 22, 2012 6:56 PM
Martin you need to do a little of what the article says - add your own perspective! I read the info and thought you had written it until I went to the link.
Martin Gysler's comment, January 23, 2012 3:05 AM
Hi Carey, I consider scoop.it as a tool to provide interesting information and not really as a curation tool, but, maybe you're right and I should reconsider my opinion about my approach! Thank you for your feedback.

Text from the blog: My students have always use Prezi exceptional well to zoom in and investigate the detail and then pull back to see how it all fits within the curriculum outcomes.

 

Skitch is one that has been a very recent addition but one that I am finding indispensable. Who has What? is also a recent addition but one that I will use frequently this year.

 

I don't know how many great resources I have lost simply because I have lost track of who borrowed them. So here is my little list of apps that I think are great for teachers

Why m-learning changed my life.

Why m-learning changed my life. | A little bit of ELT combined with Technology and Distance Learning | Scoop.it

I’m a mobile learner. In fact, I’d say that of all the learning experiences in my life, m-learning has been the most productive. How so? Learning is a habit (see previous post)and I’ve habitually learnt on the move, largely in what Marc Auge calls ‘non-places’ – trains, planes, automobiles, buses, hotels, airports, stations. I’m never without a book, magazine or mobile device for learning. It’s been boosted recently by my new iPOD 6.0, which is about the size of a watch (indeed it can be worn as a watch) which contains 400+ podcasts. M-learning has become my dominant form of informal learning.

"The report shows that, “the average respondent institution has enabled only a few services for mobile access. Institutions that have invested more money and those that have larger numbers of staff assigned to mobile-enablement initiatives show greater progress.”"

 

"Educause made several suggestions for college and universities that wish to expand their mobile IT abilities. According to Educause, schools should:

Focus on coordinated and organized development of mobile information technology, making sure to provide adequate funding and staff.

Prioritize and maximize limited resources to get the most out of them.

Remain flexible to multiple or innovative uses of different approaches to mobile learning, in order to serve the constantly changing needs of students and faculty and new developments in technology.

Pursue collaboration with other institutions.
