Anthony Beal's curator insight, January 2, 7:14 AM

A series of collaborative activities to help students learn more about the digital environment and their place in it.

 

In addition to examining tools and applications that can be used in education the activities look at issues such as: digital identity, digital footprint, copyright, plagiarism and evaluating web resources. Each activity consists of a session plan and guidance on how to assess the work produced.


Although designed for a high school audience the resources could be adapted for FE and Skills learners.

 

Thanks to John Dalziel for pointing out this resource.

The Digital Rocking Chair's curator insight, December 19, 2013 3:31 AM


Eric Jaffe:  "[Psychologist Neil Cohn of University of California at San Diego] says any language has a "holy triumvirate" of elements: expressive form, grammar, and meaning. Comics, he argues, meet all three requirements."

Giuseppe Fattori's curator insight, January 8, 5:16 PM

Language is more than just a series of words strung together. A sentence must have some essential structure, some system of rules governing words and clauses--a grammar. You don't have to be Strunk or White to recognize this system at work; it's automatic in the brain. In Noam Chomsky's famous example, people know that the meaningless sentence "colorless green ideas sleep furiously" is grammatically correct the very first time they see it.

ghbrett's comment, June 11, 2013 5:39 PM
Matthew: FWIW I watched a 9 year old create a capital F with SketchUp and converted it to MakerBot code and printed out his initial. Not much perhaps, but it involved text. Then there was a THATcamp last weekend for higher ed people and one of the campers tried to print an Escher cube with the letters B C and e, but sadly the machine had been moved to the new site and didn't recalibrate well. So I'd say that was another form of "literacy."
