People love to learn by examining visual representations of data. That’s been proven time and time again by the popularity of both infographics and Pinterest. So what if you could make your own infographics? What would you make it of? It’s actually easier than you think… even if you have zero design skills whatsoever.

Twelve Ideas for Teaching with QR Codes

Twelve Ideas for Teaching with QR Codes | CGS Literacy, Learning and ICT | Scoop.it

As mobile learning becomes more and more prevalent, we must find effective ways to leverage mobile tools in the classroom. As always, the tool must fit the need. Mobile learning can create both the tool and the need. With safe and specific structures, mobile learning tools can harness the excitement of technology with the purpose of effective instruction. Using QR codes for instruction is one example of this.

Social Media Guidelines

Social Media Guidelines | CGS Literacy, Learning and ICT | Scoop.it
More and more, social media is becoming a part of our daily lives. Just today, Mashable is out with a report that says Pintrest (which is less than a year old) is the #3 social network in the U.S. This report mentions that the amount of monthly traffic Facebook receives is seven billion page views, and Twitter receives 182. Again, these are just U.S. statistics. If we were to look at the numbers worldwide, I would guess they would be much, much higher.

 

But it isn't just adults who are moving more of their lives to online spaces. In a recent Pew Internet survey, 73 percent of all teens used social networks daily. The most popular of these is Facebook; however, Twitter, Myspace and even LinkedIn are not far behind.

 

And it isn't just teens. The #1 social network for kids under the age of 13 is Club Penguin. It is visited more times each day than the New York Times..

From Credibility to Information Quality | Youth and Media

From Credibility to Information Quality | Youth and Media | CGS Literacy, Learning and ICT | Scoop.it

The Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University released a new report from the Youth and Media project: “Youth and Digital Media: From Credibility to Information Quality". The authors reviewed literature at the intersection of digital media, youth and information quality - primarily works from library and information science, sociology, education and selected ethnographic studies. The top four findings:

1. Search shapes the quality of information that youth experience online.

2. Youth use cues and heuristics to evaluate quality, esp. visual and interactive elements.

3. Content creation and dissemination foster digital fluencies that can feed back into search and evaluation behaviors. 

4. Information skills acquired through personal and social activities can benefit learning in a social context. 

You may access the complete report at this website, as well as the infographic and a one page summary and an executive summary.
