Whether it's bikes or bytes, teens are teens

Whether it's bikes or bytes, teens are teens | Digital Literacy in the Library | Scoop.it

danah boyd writes: "If you're like most middle-class parents, you've probably gotten annoyed with your daughter for constantly checking her Instagram feed or with your son for his two-thumbed texting at the dinner table. But before you rage against technology and start unfavorably comparing your children's lives to your less-wired childhood, ask yourself this: Do you let your 10-year-old roam the neighborhood on her bicycle as long as she's back by dinner? Are you comfortable, for hours at a time, not knowing your teenager's exact whereabouts?"

Mary Clark's insight:

Having been that child who could leave the house on a Saturday morning, with the only requirement being "Be home before dark," this article reminded me that a lot of my growing up had to do with getting into situations I had to deal with myself, without parental help.  Do we now equate parental love with over-protection? Is letting your child have free rein to explore online any different that a 12 year old me wandering around the extremely seedy Times Square of the late 1970s? A short opinion piece that really gave me lots to ponder.

Ellen's preplanned Oscar selfie: a Samsung product placement | Digital Literacy in the Library | Scoop.it
Samsung spent nearly $20 million on Oscar TV ads and part of its sponsorship included getting its Galaxy smartphone integrated into the show. The bet paid off when host Ellen DeGeneres used the phone to take a selfie that was retweeted nearly 3 million times.

Innovations in Education - Students as Curators: Moving Towards Personalized Learning | Digital Literacy in the Library | Scoop.it

"If students can engage more in inquiry of their own making: questioning, curating, designing, and real-world problem solving, then students will own the learning.  This, to me, is what personalized learning should look like."

Hit the Mark with Digital Media Exit Cards

Hit the Mark with Digital Media Exit Cards | Digital Literacy in the Library | Scoop.it

"For teachers, the key is how to get the learning to spill out of the classroom and continue the conversation. As the school year starts, digital tools via mobile devices are a perfect resource for breaking down the walls of the classroom, gathering immediate feedback on learning, and sharing in social media communities."

Mary Clark's insight:

I'm not sure how much of this is summarizing instead of synthesis, but I love the idea of digital exit cards.  It wouldn't take much time to set up a Google form with one question, and limit answers to 15 words or less.

Innovations in Education - Developing Future Workskills Through Content Curation

Innovations in Education - Developing Future Workskills Through Content Curation | Digital Literacy in the Library | Scoop.it

"The response to my previous post on Understanding Content Curation has been incredible. This definitely is a topic people are passionate about.  Perhaps part of the reason for this is the tools and technology available provides an easy pathway to curate and follow our individual learning passions.  This has me thinking more about the role content curation can play for students in inspiring passion-based learning, moving towards personalized learning and of the many skills and habits of mind that students can develop through the process."

Mary Clark's insight:

I love Nancy's concise summary of the skills involved in content curation. This would be an excellent article to share with a teacher who may be reluctant to take on a passion-based learning project.

If your information literacy really is about promoting informed citizenship, it needs to address more than just search techniques and the characteristics of various formats of information.  It needs to encourage questions about the judgments and choices people make when they create, disseminate, and buy into political information.

Flipping the Library: Tips from Three Pros | The Digital Shift 2013 - The Digital Shift | Digital Literacy in the Library | Scoop.it
Three experts shared tech tips and tools during “Flipped School Libraries,” a rapid-fire, dynamic session during The Digital Shift: Reinventing Libraries (#TDS13) webcast.

 

 

Through the use of innovative technologies and online resources, school libraries can now be available tostudents wherever—and whenever—they need them. “Flipped” or blended learning offers students thepower of personalized instruction, through a mix of virtual and face-to-face interactions, at a student’s own pace. Embracing this concept is a must for student engagement and the future of the profession, say school librarians Joyce Valenza, Brenda Boyer, and Michelle Luhtala.
