"Not only can a truly fluent student speak, listen, write and comprehend, but he or she can also make inferences and construct new meaning."  This also defines what I hope we're doing with Common Core, and in my experience, it's an enormous shift in students' expectations.  Making them do the thinking can be frustrating after years of memorization and regurgitation.

another uuseful research about iPads in the classroom. Gives an insight of erent experience,

I specially liked the words:

“No technology has an impact on learning in its own right; rather, its impact depends on how it is used… The question that should be asked is not ‘Can iPads support learning?’ but rather ‘How can iPads be used to support collaborative learning, or exploratory learning’, or whatever…”

Social Media Content Curation, Aggregation, Scheduling and Marketing Goes 2.0

Social Media Content Curation, Aggregation, Scheduling and Marketing Goes 2.0 | Digital Literacy | Scoop.it

If there is one thing I have learned over my years of experience with internet, software and technology startups is that you cannot make a bad product get traction in the marketplace with a really awesome website and messaging. I have also learned that you cannot keep an exceptional product from growing virally, even if the messaging, website and interface are horrible. The Bundle Post Social Content Management System is a great example of that.

Even though we have not spent any time and resources on the Bundle Post website up to this point, our horrid old logo, site design and messaging has not kept the application from growing to thousands and thousands of users. It has not prevented our company from growing revenue, user base and testimonials.

Popular Content Doesn't Always Equal Good - Here's How It Could. | Business 2 Community

Popular Content Doesn't Always Equal Good - Here's How It Could. | Business 2 Community | Digital Literacy | Scoop.it

In a recent post for The Atlantic, Derek Thompson investigates what drives people to read content online. As a writer for a popular news site, it’s of interest to Thompson to find out what people are clicking on and why when navigating through the endless amount of web content available. Though it sounds like a boring study of analytics at first, his findings and references are actually super interesting.

 

Readers want to be told what to read/listen to/download first. There’s too much information out there to take it all in at once, and The Atlantic – along with most other sites – tries to provide its audience with the freshest content in the (supposedly) most accessible places. That said, Thompson and his analytics team found that the majority of readers aren’t clicking on that content; they’re clicking on the content that’s hidden all the way at the bottom of the page, but under a very specific headline: Most Popular.

 

An interesting study conducted by two sociologists showed that people chose to download and listen to songs that were classified as “Most Popular,” even if they weren’t actually the most popular downloads of the time. Thompson triggered a realization for me: people want to consume content that others are consuming. This might not be the best content, but they trust that it will be worthwhile because it’s popular. We trust the opinions of our peers over the opinion of the site hosting the content.

What do you feel are the key digital literacy skills that 21st century learners need?

What do you feel are the key digital literacy skills that 21st century learners need? | Digital Literacy | Scoop.it

Digital literacy has become one of the major issues facing educators in this early part of the 21st century. The need to develop students and teachers digital literacies has become increasingly accepted as fact and yet most teachers' and students' understanding of what exactly constitutes a digital literacy still seems to remain quite vague. Even more vague seems to be teachers' understanding of how precisely we go about developing those literacies.

The Reading Brain in the Digital Age: The Science of Paper versus Screens| Scientific American

The Reading Brain in the Digital Age: The Science of Paper versus Screens| Scientific American | Digital Literacy | Scoop.it

In a viral YouTube video from October 2011 a one-year-old girl sweeps her fingers across an iPad's touchscreen, shuffling groups of icons. In the following scenes she appears to pinch, swipe and prod the pages of paper magazines as though they too were screens. When nothing happens, she pushes against her leg, confirming that her finger works just fine—or so a title card would have us believe.

The girl's father, Jean-Louis Constanza, presents "A Magazine Is an iPad That Does Not Work" as naturalistic observation—a Jane Goodall among the chimps moment—that reveals a generational transition. "Technology codes our minds," he writes in the video's description. "Magazines are now useless and impossible to understand, for digital natives"—that is, for people who have been interacting with digital technologies from a very early age.

Perhaps his daughter really did expect the paper magazines to respond the same way an iPad would. Or maybe she had no expectations at all—maybe she just wanted to touch the magazines. Babies touch everything. Young children who have never seen a tablet like the iPad or an e-reader like the Kindle will still reach out and run their fingers across the pages of a paper book; they will jab at an illustration they like; heck, they will even taste the corner of a book. Today's so-called digital natives still interact with a mix of paper magazines and books, as well as tablets, smartphones and e-readers; using one kind of technology does not preclude them from understanding another.

Nevertheless, the video brings into focus an important question: How exactly does the technology we use to read change the way we read?
