Digital Divide Nonprofit MOUSE Looks Back and Forward (EdSurge News) | Digital divide and children | Scoop.it

1997, when MOUSE began operating. Originally founded to bring Internet access and computers to underserved schools, the New York-based nonprofit shifted gears in 2000 and started teaching tech skills to middle and high school students. Today, MOUSE trains students in 377 schools across the country and runs a yearlong afterschool tech design program for about 25 New York City high schoolers.

 

(..) MOUSE thinks of itself as more STEAM than STEM. (The 'A' standing for arts.) It wants to cultivate life and work smarts rather than specific technical skills.

Technology Is Changing How Students Learn, Teachers Say

Technology Is Changing How Students Learn, Teachers Say | Digital divide and children | Scoop.it
There is a widespread belief among teachers that digital technology is hampering students’ attention spans and ability to persevere, according to two surveys.

 

(...) The surveys include some findings that appear contradictory. In the Common Sense report, for instance, some teachers said that even as they saw attention spans wane, students were improving in subjects like math, science and reading.

But researchers said the conflicting views could be the result of subjectivity and bias. For example, teachers may perceive themselves facing both a more difficult challenge but also believe that they are overcoming the challenge through effective teaching.

Pew said its research gave a “complex and at times contradictory” picture of teachers’ view of technology’s impact.

How tablets are invading the classroom | Digital Trends | Digital divide and children | Scoop.it
Tablets are launching a full scale assault on education. We take a look at the adoption of tablets in schools and which tablet will reign supreme in the evolving world of education.

 

Apple CEO Tim Cook said “Education tends to be a conservative institution, but we’re not seeing that at all on the iPad.” He went on to explain that “The adoption of the iPad in education is something I’ve never seen in any technology.”

Philomag - Dossier - Pourquoi nous n'apprendrons plus comme avant

Philomag - Dossier - Pourquoi nous n'apprendrons plus comme avant | Digital divide and children | Scoop.it

Pourquoi nous n'apprendrons plus comme avant : dossier publié par Philomag.com, le site de Philosophie Magazine, premier magazine de philosophie en langue française.

 

La révolution numérique n'est plus un slogan. Chaque jour, nous naviguons un peu plus, délaissons l'imprimé pour l'écran, stockons nos connaissances, vérifions sur Internet ce que nous dit un interlocuteur… ou un enseignant. Comment apprendre, lire, nous souvenir, transmettre, emportés par ce flux que nous maîtrisons encore mal ? Le danger de perdre la concentration et la mémoire, de négliger l'étude, de ne plus pouvoir enseigner, est réel. Mais le basculement de Gutenberg à Google porte aussi en lui l'espoir d'un esprit enfin libre – puisque des machines s'occupent de l'intendance – de se consacrer à l'essentiel : la pensée créatrice. Comme en son temps l'imprimerie, il n'est pas impossible qu'Internet fasse éclore un nouvel humanisme.

School Librarians As Facilitators of Learning

Keynote speech by David Lankes*, with excellent examples of what school librarians do, and why.

 

Interestingly, he lists four types of digital divides within an increasingly regimented curriculum environment

 

1) Access
i.e. access to technology, to broadband.
How to provide access to the students but also to the students?

 

2) Knowledge / training
i.e. how to use the technology.
How to provide access to materials but also to people and conversations? How to facilitate learning? How to educate students to information research? How to tackle social media literacy?

 

3) Environment
i.e. safety use of the technology; physical and Intellectual safety of students within the library.
What's the image and role of libraries? Interesting part about the use of space in libraries to stack books vs offer space to people to come to and explore.

 

4) Motivation
the biggest divides of all that librarians need to overcome.

 

HIS CONCLUSIONS:
=> #SchoolLibrarians are uniquely positioned to lead the Information Age
=> Think "community" not "collections"

Pioneering Literacy in the Digital Wild West | NewAmerica.net | Digital divide and children | Scoop.it
@CotCotCotApps's insight:

Our report, Pioneering Literacy in the Digital Wild West: Empowering Parents and Educators, shows that while many digital products claim to teach reading, the app marketplace currently puts a heavy emphasis on teaching letters, sounds and phonics. A snapshot of the iTunes App Store's most popular paid literacy apps showed that 45 percent targeted letters and sounds and half targeted phonics, but only 5 percent targeted vocabulary. And none of the iTunes paid apps in the scan focused on comprehension, grammar and the ability to understand and tell stories.

 

“Technology changes so quickly that browsing the app store can feel like a digital version of entering the Wild West,” the report notes. “Parents and educators face a fast-growing array of products purporting to help their children learn to read but receive little information on how or if these products live up to their claims.”

France : Les enfants aiment tout de même lire - étude IPSOS - @actualitte | Digital divide and children | Scoop.it
Et certains, même, adorent !...

 

Le secteur jeunesse avec le vent en poupe

En France, 40 % des jeunes aiment lire, et 38 % adorent ça. Ils seraient même 57 % à choisir eux-mêmes les ouvrages qu'ils souhaitent découvrir. Et toujours avec des filles qui sont plus «matures» que les garçons sur la question.

 

Pour Chrisitine Baker, directrice éditoriale chez Gallimard Jeunesse : « Cette tendance se recoupe avec des études réalisées dans d'autres pays du monde. Nous, éditeurs français, ne baissons pas les bras, c'est même notre grand défi que de capter les garçons et leur démontrer que la lecture peut être aussi sexy qu'un jeu vidéo… »
