7 ways to teach digital literacy skills – iPads in Education

7 ways to teach digital literacy skills – iPads in Education | Linking Literacy, Research, and Practice | Scoop.it

7 ways to teach digital literacy skills Fostering digital literacy skills is one of the most difficult tasks for educators. Evaluating and analyzing online resources for accuracy is something that many adults struggle with – we’ve all been bamboozled before, haven’t we? But digital literacy is more than just determining if something is true or false – it’s intelligently and responsibly navigating online, it’s putting countless pieces together to form a puzzle, it’s determining what’s important and evaluating bias, etc – the list goes on. So, as an educator, how do we reinforce these crucial skills in our classrooms?

"At the heart of the MakerParty campaign, Webmaker tools/resources, and Hive Learning Network is the Web Literacy Map, which outlines what we at the Mozilla Foundation think are the important skills and competencies needed to be literate on the web. Each web literacy competency has a dedicated page that features the best resources on the web to help you “Discover, Make, and Teach” those skills.

 

"Hive Learning Network, a project of Mozilla, is comprised of organizations (libraries, museums, schools and non-profit start-ups) and individuals (educators, designers, community catalysts and makers). Together, they create opportunities for youth to gain digital and analog skills to learn within and beyond the confines of traditional classroom experiences, design innovative practices and tools that provide opportunities for greater impact, and contribute to their own professional development within an active community of practice."

Les Howard's curator insight, August 18, 9:09 AM

There is a  strong case against using robo-graders for assigning grades and test scores. But there’s another use for robo-graders — a role for them to play in which, evidence suggests, they may not only be as good as humans, but better. In this role, the computer functions not as a grader but as a proofreader and basic writing tutor, providing feedback on drafts, which students then use to revise their papers before handing them in to a human.

Why Adults Render Kids Helpless - Tim Elmore

Have you heard the term “over-functioning parents”? It’s relatively new to our daily language but has been around for a long time. It’s a euphemism for the mom or dad who is overactive during their kid’s childhood… forgetting they’re raising a future adult. Over-functioning is simply the predisposition to do too much for our children, …

An absolutely significant skill in any research or investigation, for educators and learners in the digital age - the curation of content- with a clear focus or question in mind, the capacity to target a search field, sift through, reflect on and make decisions about the most suitable resource or evidence to use.
