Educational Leadership:Technology-Rich Learning:New Literacies and the Common Core

Educational Leadership:Technology-Rich Learning:New Literacies and the Common Core | CCGPS Resources for Learning and Sharing | Scoop.it

It makes sense that an emphasis on new ways of reading and writing fits easily within the Common Core umbrella. After all, a primary thrust of the new standards is college and career readiness. How can we hope to prepare our young people to thrive in today's society—in which people are connected 24 hours a day by media and coworkers may well live in different countries—without giving them some practice with new media at school?

 

The teachers I have studied take the preparation of students to participate in a wired world seriously, and much of this preparation involves making sure that students are able to navigate new ways of reading and writing. Here are four strategies that can help—each one closely related to one or more of the Common Core standards in English language arts and literacy.

How to Teach Expository Text Structure to Facilitate Reading Comprehension

How to Teach Expository Text Structure to Facilitate Reading Comprehension | CCGPS Resources for Learning and Sharing | Scoop.it
Over the past 60 years, reading comprehension has changed its emphasis from the mastery of skills and subskills that are learned by rote and automatized to a focus on learning strategies, which are adaptable, flexible, and, most important, in the control of the reader (Dole, Duffy, Roehler, & Pearson, 1991). One of the most efficient strategies for which there is an influx of research and practice is training students on text structure knowledge to facilitate their comprehension of the expository texts.

All of these tie into the ELA/Social Studies standards for using primary sources, integrating visual information, etc.  Great ideas that would be easy to implement!

Teaching Ethics in the Age of Technology

Teaching Ethics in the Age of Technology | CCGPS Resources for Learning and Sharing | Scoop.it

"Ethical decision-making should be included as a 21st century skill (overused term but don’t know of an alternative).  Some would profess that ethical decision-making has always been a needed skill.  But we are living in the most complex era of human history.  Information access and abundance, and emerging technologies are advancing, and being developed and disseminated at rates that the human mind often cannot comprehend.  Now more than ever ethics should be integrated into young people’s educations."
