What is digital fluency?

What is digital fluency? | Applied linguistics and knowledge engineering | Scoop.it
Crucially, the outcome of being digitally fluent relates to issues of responsibility, equity and access. We all have the right to fully participate in a digitally-enabled education system and in an increasingly digitised society. If we work with fluency in the way we use technologies, we are able to keep ourselves safe online and take full advantage of life chance opportunities such as being able to apply for work, manage our finances, or be part of our local community

Nice interesting article

Louise Robinson-Lay's curator insight, November 6, 2015 10:14 PM
Teaching students to create their own learning is every bit as important as teaching subject knowledge, arguably, more so.
Marta Botella's curator insight, November 9, 2015 6:52 AM

En pleno Siglo XXI las competencias digitales se han convertido en un requisito indispensable para la sociedad, tanto en el trabajo como en el día a día de las personas. Por ello se pide el reconocimiento de las competencias digitales como habilidades básicas esenciales.

Los maestros deben fomentar las competencias digitales en sus alumnos con el fin de formar ciudadanos capaces de resolver toda clase de problemas con eficacia y creatividad.

Exploring the composition of the searchable web: a corpus-based taxonomy of web registers
Douglas Biber, Jesse Egbert and Mark Davies

Narrative registers are found to be the most prevalent, while Opinion and Informational Description/Explanation registers are also found to be extremely common. One of the major innovations of the approach adopted here is that it permits an empirical identification of ‘hybrid’ documents, which integrate characteristics from multiple general register categories (e.g., opinionated-narrative). These patterns are described and illustrated through sample Internet documents.

Preparing for the digital university: a review of the history and current state of distance, blended, and online learning

Preparing for the digital university: a review of the history and current state of distance, blended, and online learning | Applied linguistics and knowledge engineering | Scoop.it

The sheer scale of numbers of students led to bold proclamations of education disruption and a sector on the verge of systemic change. However, from the perspective of 2015, these statements appear increasingly erroneous as moocs have proven to be simply an additional learning opportunity instead of a direct challenge to higher education itself. Many of the issues confronting early mooc development and offerings could have been reduced if greater consideration was given to research literature in learning sciences and technology enabled learning.

A research study, explaining several ways of implementing educational material and methodologies that could be used for each one.  Taking into consideration the impact of technology and its growth into the educational area.  For example distance education, blended and online learning and the adaptation of technology in this field.

Revisiting Digital Natives, Digital Immigrants

Revisiting Digital Natives, Digital Immigrants | Applied linguistics and knowledge engineering | Scoop.it

As with many ideas which may be simply stated Prensky’s world of ‘Digital Natives and Immigrants’ has been oversimplified and misunderstood. In part this is the danger that comes with relying upon a cultural metaphor and a consequence of society’s love affair with neat dichotomies.

Dr. Laura Sheneman's curator insight, October 23, 2015 9:50 AM

"Prensky’s analysis continues to spark debate and that is a positive thing. The reality of how our supposedly Digital Natives or Immigrants engage with technology and learning reveals a more complex landscape than a simple dichotomy allows for. A richer subculture analysis is required where individual narrative of technologies meanings may be revealed"

Angela C. Dowd's curator insight, October 24, 2015 12:06 PM

Well written and relevant...instructional designers often talk about this. Thanks Nik!
