Every Day Should Be Digital Learning Day | ED.gov Blog | Cyber Awareness | Scoop.it
eduPLEX's insight:

Yes, every day should be Digital Learning Day as our students are citizens of the digital world. I couldn't help feel sorry for the students whose teacher says that her students do not need technology, and I wonder about their job prospects in a few years, when they enter the workforce being digitally illiterate.

So, yes, every day should be Digital Learning Day!

Once a learning module is made, you can tweak it each year, to really personalise it for each students. So, whilst they take a while, you are creating your own eLearning "library" along the way...

3-D printing enlivens students' ideas | Cyber Awareness | Scoop.it

"In the corner of Jason Steele's classroom at Oblock Junior High School in Plum, Pa., two 3-D printers whirred softly as they slowly created two objects out of blue plastic thread. Mr. Steele is using the four printers in his eighth-grade technology education classes to allow students to develop a three-dimensional object on a computer and turn it into a physical product."

Creating Device Neutral Assignments for BYOD Classes -- THE Journal | Cyber Awareness | Scoop.it
Educators don’t have to alter lessons for each device, argues BYOD expert Ron Milliner.
eduPLEX's insight:

This is quite interesting as it is a challenge that I face when designing online courses for students.What I have found is the kids really like to come up with an alternative program - when I have specified , for example, a Microsoft program. I really like the way they innovate, accomodate and work around issues like this.

A New Pedagogy is Emerging...And Online Learning is a Key Contributing Factor | Contact North | Cyber Awareness | Scoop.it

In all the discussion about learning management systems, open educational resources (OERs), massive open online courses (MOOCs), and the benefits and challenges of online learning, perhaps the most important issues concern how technology is changing the way we teach, and - more importantly - the way students learn. For want of a better term, we call this “pedagogy.”

Digital Literacy in the Primary Classroom

Digital Literacy in the Primary Classroom | Cyber Awareness | Scoop.it

Kevin McLaughlin writes a great post sharing: What is Digital Literacy

 

Futurelab, an organisation ‘committed to developing creative and innovative approaches to education, teaching and learning’, gives the following definition in its publication Digital Literacy across the curriculum:

 

To be digitally literate is to have access to a broad range of practices and cultural resources that you are able to apply to digital tools. It is the ability to make and share meaning in different modes and formats; to create, collaborate and communicate effectively and to understand how and when digital technologies can best be used to support these processes.
