There is no doubt in my mind that there can be value in digital learning. But we some work to do before the learning opportunities truly take advantage of the types of resources to which students can have access. Doing something essentially the same way but online may not be much improvement for the students and their learning.

Motivation and cooperative learning are good uses problems arise for people in the evaluation and assessment and that compromises the acceptance of such by potential employers etc. The difficulty is in discerning the difference between collaborative or shared learning as opposed to simple collusion in getting answers which may not entail much,if any learning,other than how to cheat and thus disadvantage genuine learners who have made an effort.Thus making use of others' research to inform your own projects is not the same as claiming others' work as your own...and that is a big selling point for systems like Turnitin and others.

"A few years ago, I came across some interesting research by cognitive psychologist Ronald T. Kellogg. He claimed that the mark of an expert writer is not years of practice or a hefty vocabulary, but rather an awareness of one’s audience. This made sense to me, and I wondered if it were true in other disciplines as well."

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, December 13, 5:13 PM

Transmedia literacy implies engaging critically in nonlinear narratives of all kinds, from entertainment and branding to journalism.  We build mental models unconsciously, to create a holistic understanding.  In entertainment, we revel in narratives of choice--we can actively pursue and evaluate content based on enjoyment, relevance, and identity.  Many other narratives are more subtle, news, commercial and social stories can be equally immersive and persuasive without our awareness.  Transmedia literacy emphasizes the need for mindful attention to the narrative construction that create larger ideaworlds in our off and online environments.

The Digital Rocking Chair's curator insight, December 14, 4:17 PM


Dr. Pamela Rutledge:  "Transmedia storytelling goes beyond the need to segment such skills as search and collaboration.  It demands the ability to recognize, understand, and interact with narrative threads across multiple modalities, not just within them."

Debbie Elicksen 's curator insight, December 21, 11:52 AM

"Mass media producers are scrambling because they can no longer take viewers’ attention for granted.  Audiences have choice and are psychologically and technologically empowered to seek content worth their most valuable asset—attention."

This is the “age of information” after all. Self-directed learning is one response, something slideshare user Barbara Stokes captures in this chart, based on the model by Gerald Grow.

Did you know that it is estimated that 1 out of 5 people struggle with dyslexia (and often do not realize it)? This post provides a range of resources that look at dyslexia. The resources are grouped in four areas:

* Understanding Dsylexia

* Identifying Dyslexia

* How to Teach Dyslexic Students

* Personalizing Dyslexia

The resources include videos and articles/posts as well as a link to a great website at Yale. And if you have a student in your class how is dyslexic they might be interested in learning that the following people were also dyslexic: Albert Einstein, Steven Jobs, Walt Disney, Tom Cruise and Steven Spielberg were also dyslexic.

and coordinated entertainment experience. Ideally, each medium makes it own unique contribution to the unfolding of the story.”

In transmedia storytelling, narrative is central to the story, which is told across multiple platforms, and may include sound, images, text, movie and gaming elements. The best part about it is that each of those elements plays an integral part of the narrative. And without experiencing all of those elements, you miss the full story. That’s what makes transmedia storytelling a powerful tool for 21st century literacy and learning.

Type Superfast With Real Time Voice Dictation in iOS 8 ~ makeuseof

Type Superfast With Real Time Voice Dictation in iOS 8 ~ makeuseof | Daniel Christian | Scoop.it

by Bakari Chavanu

 

"It’s time to do less typing and more talking with the new real time voice-to-text feature in iOS 8.


"Relatively little has been said about the new real-time dictation function in iOS, and in previous versions it may not have been worthy of the highlight. But with the recent iOS 8 update, Apple has restored bragging rights when it comes voice dictation and mobile devices.

"Past iOS dictation implementation wouldn’t show the text you dictated until you tapped the Done button, which meant activating the feature several times for long form dictation. Well, not anymore. For me, the new voice-to-text feature works more efficiently than Dragon Dictate on the Mac."

 

Jim Lerman's insight:

I have been a user of Dragon Naturally Speaking for about 8 years and have found it very, very useful -- both for myself and in teaching. Having an effective, "free" voice-to-text capability opens up fabulous opportunities for students to express themselves. The advent of easy voice to text moves writing in a whole new direction. I know because I dictated most of the last book I wrote and several recent  funding proposals. It takes awhile to learn how to dictate efficiently and effectively, which has little to do with the software learning your voice patterns and much to do with developing a different though process.
