Facebook Guide for Educators

From the Education Foundation, although very basic, it might be useful for those who need step by step descriptions of each aspect of Facebook. Nice that one of our ex-Digichamps (Southampton University) has a quote there.

How to Develop Digital Literacies in Yourself and Others

If literacy is just ‘reading and writing’ then why has so much ink been spilled over such a simple concept? Is there just one ‘literacy’ to rule them all?

HJJP's curator insight, Today, 8:16 PM

Single source education has never been very effective, I still remember those days of pure memorization. I was fortunate enough to have relatives that always asked me about what I learned... and they were not interested in me reciting the facts, they were interested in me telling them what I thought, how it impacted my life or those of others.... When I answered them, and they were happy with my answers, I actually got to understand what I had memorized, and certainly got to master the information in a more meaningful way.... It did not always help with getting excellent grades in exams, but I still accurately remember concepts I learned in 3rd grade.... I feel blended learning is the only way of teaching.... this will allow students to understand and implement complex concepts, catapulting them into much high learning than what we experienced 50 years ago.... or 40... or 30... even 20 or in many classrooms, a couple of days ago....

 

Hope to see many teachers utilizing these sort of blended learning... Current technology makes it so much easier...

Kaitlyn Kaminski's curator insight, July 2, 8:04 AM

This is a fantastic infographic that shows the relationships youth have with social media. The inclination of what they are posting is really fascinating. This is pretty new research too which is great as that is difficult to find. These medium are constantly changing and having an idea of these forms and their popularity would help educators understand where they need to focus their pedagogy.

Rachael Jones's curator insight, July 14, 8:06 PM

This infographic highlights the importance of teaching our students digital literacy & protective behaviours in the social media context. 91% post pictures to social media of themselves - not surprising - but nevertheless, shows we need to have a conversation with students about how they wish to be portrayed online, who can see their content, and how it could - potentially - be used against them in the future.

Teaching "tweenagers" and students with special needs about the consequences of their actions online is difficult when their cognitive development has not yet reached formal operational thinking.

Developing Digital Literacies with Saudi Arabian HEIs

Developing Digital Literacies with Saudi Arabian HEIs | Digital Literacies information sources | Scoop.it

A delegation from Saudi Arabia have participated in a workshop on the strategic use of digital technology and skills development as part of a series of events planned for their visit to the UK, Germany and Washington D.C.

 

have just come back running a day and half workshop around the Strategic Use of TEL in Higher Education - it was a specific workshop to start off a series of events and workshops for the NCEL International Courses, organised by The International Academy for Educational Consultancy and Professional Development http://www.iaecpd.com/.  The group that I had the pleasure of working with was a group of academics and senior managers from Saudi Arabia.  

 

The prezi I used can be accessed here: http://prezi.com/yjbtwgo5jbfw/?utm_campaign=share&utm_medium=copy 

 

The group will be spending around 10 days in the UK and will be exploring a range of activities using a variety of tools, including iPads. Throughout the workshop they identified how important digital literacies were to any kind of innovation.  One of the most interesting activities was a look at the challenges associated with becoming an innovative institution, this sparked some interesting conversations.

It was great fun, and I hope that they enjoy their time in the UK (and come back soon!)
