Infographic of the Week: The Road to Digital Literacy | Digital Literacy | Scoop.it

Digital literacy… Information literacy… Technology literacy… There are so many “literacies” in education these days, but what do they all mean? Probably just what you might imagine—and then some! But besides becoming competent in these essential 21st Century skills, it’s important for you, your students and your colleagues to understand their significance.

How to promote literacy skills in the digital age | eSchool News | Digital Literacy | Scoop.it

Digital apps that claim to teach children important reading and literacy skills do not always impart higher-level abilities that children need to develop strong reading skills, according to a report from the Campaign for Grade-Level Reading.

 

Most of the skills these apps target are very basic, and parents and educators often do not have in-depth—or any—knowledge of how the apps work or if they work at all, claims the report, “Pioneering Literacy in the Digital Wild West.”

 

This past spring, the Campaign for Grade-Level Reading asked the Joan Ganz Cooney Center at Sesame Workshop and the New America Foundation to conduct a nationwide scan of technology-based products aimed at improving the early literacy skills of children from birth through age 8.

 

The researchers did not intend to evaluate product and program effectiveness, but instead focused on gathering information about what is currently available to parents, children, and educators.

 

The market for children’s apps is booming, the report notes—though it calls this market a “digital Wild West.” In a recent examination of Apple’s App Store, the Joan Ganz Cooney Center found that 72 percent of the top-selling apps in the Education category target preschool-age children.

Unregulated KIS data overload will baffle, not enlighten, students

Unregulated KIS data overload will baffle, not enlighten, students | Digital Literacy | Scoop.it

"It is precisely the students we are keenest to encourage - those from widening-participation backgrounds - who will be most disadvantaged by unregulated information overload. Bafflement, together with debt-aversion, is likely to reinforce their tendency to "go local" - and this in turn could seriously restrict their choices and opportunities."

Adding Value with Your Sharing and Posts | Social Media Today

Adding Value with Your Sharing and Posts | Social Media Today | Digital Literacy | Scoop.it

Remember when someone older than you first got an email account? They probably sent you at least one joke, and it was likely to a long list of recipients. Actually, they probably sent a lot of jokes. There is a similar phenomenon with social media. While it may not be jokes, we are inundated with over-sharing of the same stuff.

First of all, there is a difference between sharing and making something public. Posting a social bookmark to a service like Delicious does not create additional noise for your networked peers in a social network. This is making your work public. But posting your latest collection of webpages in an activity stream is sharing. Doing it poorly adds more noise than signal.

By desire, not default: information literacy best practice | JISC RSC Wales Blog

By desire, not default: information literacy best practice | JISC RSC Wales Blog | Digital Literacy | Scoop.it

On 1 August I went along to Cardiff Central Library for an Information Literacy Best Practice Day organised by the CyMAL-funded Welsh Information Literacy Project (WILP) [http://library.wales.org/en/information-literacy/]. One of the great things about the social web, for me, is that you don’t always have to write a lengthy report yourself: if you wait a few days, someone somewhere will, with luck, share their notes with you. So I’m grateful to Rebecca Mogg for her write-up here [http://www.informationliteracy.org.uk/2013/08/welsh-information-literacy-project-bite-sized-best-practice-day-cardiff-central-library-1-august-2013/] and to the WILP team for their Twitter story [http://storify.com/Welsh_Info_Lit/wilp-best-practice-sharing-day-aug-2013].

Here I’ll single out a few of my highlights and personal reflections on the day. It was all interesting but I’m going to focus on the technology aspects, and the interplay (as I see it) between information literacy and digital literacy.
