9 Digital Learning Tools Every 21st Century Teacher Should Be Able To Use

9 Digital Learning Tools Every 21st Century Teacher Should Be Able To Use | Digital Literacy; Cyber safety | Scoop.it

"The 21st century is a time of rapid change, and while the brain may not be changing (much), the tools we use to feed it are.

This puts the 21st century teacher in a critical spot–of mastering constantly evolving technology and digital learning tools–the same tools their students use every day.

So below, we’ve started with 9 such tools, but this is obviously just scratching the surface. This list is not meant to be exhaustive (obviously), or even authoritative (but rather, subjective)."

Exploring Curation as a core competency in digital and media literacy education | Mihailidis | Journal of Interactive Media in Education

Exploring Curation as a core competency in digital and media literacy education | Mihailidis | Journal of Interactive Media in Education | Digital Literacy; Cyber safety | Scoop.it

Abstract: In today's hypermedia landscape, youth and young adults are increasingly using social media platforms, online aggregators and mobile applications for daily information use. Communication educators, armed with a host of free, easy-to-use online tools, have the ability to create dynamic approaches to teaching and learning about information and communication flow online. In this paper we explore the concept of curation as a student- and creation-driven pedagogical tool to enhance digital and media literacy education. We present a theoretical justification for curation and present six key ways that curation can be used to teach about critical thinking, analysis and expression online. We utilize a case study of the digital curation platform Storify to explore how curation works in the classroom, and present a framework that integrates curation pedagogy into core media literacy education learning outcomes.

Keywords: Media Literacy, Curation, Civic Engagement, Digital Learning
