Twitter Aligned with Bloom's Taxonomy for Your Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Twitter Aligned with Bloom's Taxonomy for Your Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Digital Literacy in Education and Libraries | Scoop.it
by Med Karbach Thinking about using Twitter with your students ? The visual below is one of the best guide I have come across online. The graphic is created by Langwitches and provides a cognitive incentive for those reluctant teachers out there to start using social media with their students and particularly Twitter. Langwitches started her graphic by outlining some of the reasons why as a teacher you should be engaged in a tweeting experience with your students. Tweeting, as is shown here, helps you cultivate a wide range of important literacies including : digital literacy, information literacy, network literacy and also promotes some other skills such as critical thinking and reading and writing skills. In the second part of the graphic Langwitches introduced the Twitter routine and talked about some of the things students need to keep in mind while using Twitter and then at the third part she placed some Twitter practices along a continuum of thinking skills with lower order thinking skills in one end and higher order thinking skills at the other. Langwiches has also recently created a wonderful visual on visible thinking routines. I recommend that you check it.

Critical Search Skills Students Should Know | Edudemic | Digital Literacy in Education and Libraries | Scoop.it

There is a new digital divide on the horizon. It is not based around who has devices and who does not, but instead the new digital divide will be based around students who know how to effectively find and curate information and those who do not.

 

Helene Blowers has come up with seven ideas about the new digital divide – four of them, the ones I felt related to searching, are listed below.
