Making the case for literacy: Are tech experts disqualified?

Making the case for literacy: Are tech experts disqualified? | Art Education and Technology | Scoop.it

Too many in the education profession are advocating for more integration of technology across the curriculum without linking it to the underachievement and the literacy crisis in this country. All over the blogosphere, there are individuals discussing media, technology and other computer-related skills, while overlooking the fact that we have millions of American youth and adults who do not possess basic reading, writing and math skills. How can we seriously discuss and advocate for an increase in technology in education without first acknowledging that we have a growing population of citizens who are not even able to read a Google page for information or able to decipher media propaganda from legitimate news sources?

Impact of Open Educational Resources on Online Learning - Inside Online Schools | Art Education and Technology | Scoop.it

"Open Educational Resources (OER) have created opportunities for people to learn things they may never have dreamed possible.  Access to educational materials has become available through online sites across the globe.  Many people may be familiar with the term “open source” as it applies to how computer programmers have shared information.  However, the term “OER” may be less familiar."

Report Recommends Shift to Digital Educational Resources Within 5 Years -- THE Journal

Report Recommends Shift to Digital Educational Resources Within 5 Years -- THE Journal | Art Education and Technology | Scoop.it
"If the shift to digital instructional materials is not made immediately, major funding will continue to be directed to traditional materials that will tie the hands of students and educators to static, inflexible content for years to come,"...

 

A new report from the State Education Technology Directors Association (SETDA) points to the importance of shifting K-12 schools in the United States from printed textbooks to digital educational resources. The report released today, Out of Print: Reimagining the K-12 Textbook in a Digital Age, delves into the benefits of digital and open educational resources, profiles several states that have already started making the shift, outlines the factors required for successful deployment of digital resources, and provides recommendations for meeting students' needs.

 

According to the report, digital content is more flexible and cost-effective than print materials such as textbooks. Digital resources can be updated easily without the cost of reprinting. They are available anytime, anywhere for students and teachers to access in the classroom or at home. They can be personalized to meet the individual needs of students. And they allow for richer content, including high-definition graphics, videos, simulations, interactive lessons, virtual labs, and online assessments.
