Eeva Kurttila-Matero's curator insight, July 28, 4:46 AM

"Digitaalinen lukutaito ei ole tietotekniikkaa, se on teknologian käyttöä ajattelun kehittämiseen. Jos kriittisen ajattelun taidot eivät vielä ole olennainen osa oppilaittesi tietoyhteiskuntavalmiuksia, sinun on aika pohtia opetusstrategioitasi."

 

Anne-Maree Johnson's curator insight, July 29, 6:51 PM

What does the term "digitally literate" mean? This article gices some prompts about what digital literacy is- and what it isn't.

Kristen McDaniel's curator insight, August 4, 11:15 AM

I really enjoyed this article on "do's" and "don'ts" for empowering students in digital literacy techniques.  I think we forget - this is where our students shine. The article points out that today's undergraduates have NEVER known life without the internet.  How do we use that to help our students learn more?

If You're Designing eLearning for Adults Take Advantage of These 4 Tactics

Beth Dichter's curator insight, August 1, 9:25 PM

If you are designing an eLearning course for adults are there aspects to consider that are important to the adult learner? This post from SH!FT would say yes. To create courses for adult learners, we must understand how adults learn, their traits and their learning styles.

What is important?

* Hook them Early (and Often)

* Make Use of Their Experiences

* Persuade Adult Learners of the Desirability of Learning Something

* Give Adult Learners the Freedom to Choose

Learn four ways to help hook the adult learner. Find four suggestions on ways to give adult learners more freedom to choose. Click through to the post to learn more.

Avidity Medical Design's curator insight, August 2, 10:13 AM

Very insightful article. I especially agree with point #2 and point #4. Point #2 indicates that learners can use past experiences to tap into new ideas. Point #4 indicates that adult learners would like to have the ability to take a more active role in defining their own learning experience. I see an interrelationship between both points because they each describe elements of self-directed learning. The learner is using what they already know to tap into new knowledge (point #2), and then, given the opportunity, they are choosing how, when, and where they acquire the new knowledge (point #4), with consideration given to the knowledge that they have already obtained (point #2). Excellent article, keep up the good work!
