Validating Data in Google Forms

Validating Data in Google Forms | Digital Literacy in the Library | Scoop.it

Alice writes: "I love using Google Forms in my classroom to collect student work, and I know many others do as well. However, did you know that you could validate the data that you collect?"

Mary Reilley Clark's insight:

This would be great if you wanted students to write Twitter book reviews.  Set the character count to 140, then add to your library's Twitter feed!

Digital Citizenship: Two Perspectives on Using Social Media in Education

Digital Citizenship: Two Perspectives on Using Social Media in Education | Digital Literacy in the Library | Scoop.it
Social media plays a huge role in our lives & the lives of our students. We asked two social media rockstars for their advice on social media in education.

Knowing the Difference Between Digital Skills and Digital Literacies, and Teaching Both

Knowing the Difference Between Digital Skills and Digital Literacies, and Teaching Both | Digital Literacy in the Library | Scoop.it

Maha Bali writes: "We often hear people talk about the importance of digital knowledge for 21st-century learners. Unfortunately, many focus on skills rather than literacies. Digital skills focus on what and how. Digital literacy focuses on why, when, who, and for whom."

Mary Reilley Clark's insight:

Maha Bali's article is worth sharing widely with anyone who needs to be nudged ever so gently into the 21st century of education. (We're 16% through it, folks!) Bali addresses the need to teach about digital skills and literacy in an authentic context, not a vacuum, and gives many concrete examples for doing that. 

 

I recently did a lesson on blogging with a 6th grade class. We looked at several tween and teen blogs, then reviewed good digital citizenship practices emphasizing student safety and copyright. Finally, each student created a blog on Blogger. Will they make mistakes? Probably. (When I specifically told them to keep it school appropriate, with nothing in the blog they wouldn't be allowed to do at school, and one student immediately started searching for "Call of Duty 3" images!) Will we all learn something from this? Absolutely.

Trip Gabriel writes: "Professors used to deal with plagiarism by admonishing students to give credit to others and to follow the style guide for citations, and pretty much left it at that.

But [recent] cases…suggest that many students simply do not grasp that using words they did not write is a serious misdeed."

Nick Kristof writes: "So think of armchair activism as a gateway drug. It exposes people to causes and sometimes gets them hooked. And while it doesn’t always solve problems, it tends to build awareness of crises — a necessary but not sufficient step to getting them resolved."

Mary Reilley Clark's insight:

It's good to see something positive came out of what I honestly thought was a bit of self-promotion from people who shared this on social media. Pair it with this article and this one to show students how the term slacktivism developed. What a great topic for a debate!

Creating an Environment That Discourages Plagiarism

Creating an Environment That Discourages Plagiarism | Digital Literacy in the Library | Scoop.it

Alice Chen writes: "Why do students plagiarize? Most of the time it's probably due to two reasons: they don't know how to properly cite their sources or they don't know what to write.

In my English Language Arts class, my students are constantly writing. It may be blog posts, essays, or speeches. We don't use services like Turnitin so how do I know that they are truly the authors of the work they call their own?

First, my students start and complete most of their writing in class. When given time to write, there is less inclination to cheat."

Mary Reilley Clark's insight:

Alice gives lots of good advice for teachers here, and takes full advantage of Google tools to assist students in their writing. I'm going to suggest the use of mind maps to get students to brainstorm about their writing. I've watched too many students open a Google Doc, Google their topic in another window, and toggle back and forth between skimming a source and writing. It's the easiest way to plagiarize, intentionally or not.


Creating a mind map, sharing their Google doc with their teacher, and getting feedback from other students are all ways to interrupt the "Google, copy and paste" system that runs rampant through research projects I've seen.

Jessica Contrera writes: "

The Internet is the place where nothing goes to die.

Those embarrassing photos of your high school dance you marked “private” on Facebook? The drunk Instagram posts? The NSFW snapchats? If you use social media, you’ve probably heard a warning akin to “don’t post anything you wouldn’t want your employer (or future employer) to see.”

We agree, and are adding this caveat: Don’t post anything you wouldn’t want hanging in an art gallery."

The Global Search for Education: Digital Literacy Tips & Tricks

The Global Search for Education: Digital Literacy Tips & Tricks | Digital Literacy in the Library | Scoop.it

In C. M. Rubin's interview, Howard Rheingold states: "When I decided to write a book about the essential literacies necessary today—with the aim of using the book as a text for a Stanford course—I decided that the essential literacies are attention, crap detection, participation, collaboration, and network awareness."

Mary Reilley Clark's insight:

This would be a great article for students to tackle, then choose topics to research. I think it's essential that my middle school students understand who is behind what they read online, and that most of the sites they use are there not to help them share selfies, but to make money.


I harp on the attention issue, because that's my internet Achille's heel. I read this article, got distracted by an email, clicked another link, looked for C.M. Rubin's Twitter name, which meant I stopped to read new tweets...I tell the students I live as an example of what not to do when trying to work online!

20 Things Educators Need To Know About Digital Literacy Skills

Saga Briggs writes: "Teaching digital literacy is about more than just integrating technology into lesson plans; it’s about using technology to understand and enhance modern communication, to locate oneself in digital space, to manage knowledge and experience in the Age of Information.

Digital literacy isn’t about knowing computers inside and out; it’s about using technology to change the way you think. If critical thinking skills haven’t yet become a part of your students’ digital citizenship, it’s time to rethink your teaching strategy."

The dirty little secret that data journalists aren’t telling you | Digital Literacy in the Library | Scoop.it

Christopher Ingraham writes: "The difference between my map and Pew's -- again, they both use the exact same data set -- underscores a bit of a dirty little secret in data journalism: Visualizing data is as much an art as a science. And seemingly tiny design decisions -- where to set a color threshold, how many thresholds to set, etc. -- can radically alter how numbers are displayed and perceived by readers."

Mary Reilley Clark's insight:

I'm doing presentations about infographics this month with 6th, 7th and 8th graders. The graphics in this article will be helpful in demonstrating how important it is to think about how the data in an infographic is displayed.

Best Way To Learn Any Subject: Curation - Content Curation Official Guide - Medium
Why is content curation so relevant for learning?
Mary Reilley Clark's insight:

Robin Good has great insight into why focused curation matters. Reading this right after Dan Russell's post about syntopical reading made me think about how I curate. In an ideal experience of curating for learning  Robin states: "...each student becomes not just a learner, but, as it should be, he becomes also a reviewer, an investigator, an explorer and a contributor to the ideas and understanding surrounding that subject."

 

Let's make sure we're teaching students curation as a literacy skill. It's not just bookmarking or Pinning or Scooping links, but engaging with them, directing their own learning, and maybe even adding something that helps others learn.

App Makers Reach Out to the Teenager on Mobile

App Makers Reach Out to the Teenager on Mobile | Digital Literacy in the Library | Scoop.it
One app’s effort to understand its teenage audience illuminates the habits of a generation that is constantly connected and often anxious.
Mary Reilley Clark's insight:

Some interesting insights from the teens interviewed in the article. I'm not sure that teens today are more "sensitve to the needs of others," but I would say they are acutely sensitive about being judged on their own posts on social media.


I looked at the Wishbone app, and found most of the comments were positive. (Of course, I always wonder with any new app how much of the content comes from actual users and how much is posted by busy interns!) Wishbone does give a certain distance from judgement--the user is asking a question, and not really putting her own opinion, appearance, likes, etc., on display. As Dougherty states, it's about "your tastes, not your identity."


This article would be great for a high school discussion on social media!

Six easy ways to tell if that viral story is a hoax

Six easy ways to tell if that viral story is a hoax | Digital Literacy in the Library | Scoop.it

Pete Brown writes: "But news in the digital age spreads faster than ever, and so do lies and hoaxes. Just like retractions and corrections in newspapers, online rebuttals often make rather less of a splash than the original misinformation. As I have argued elsewhere, digital verification skills are essential for today’s journalists, and academic institutions are starting to provide the necessary training.

But ordinary people are also starting to take a more sophisticated approach to the content they view online. It’s no longer enough to read the news – now, we want to understand the processes behind it. Fortunately, there are a few relatively effective verification techniques, which do not require specialist knowledge or costly software.

The Covert World of Wikipedia Editing

The Covert World of Wikipedia Editing | Digital Literacy in the Library | Scoop.it

Joe Pinsker, quoting James Heilman,  writes: "Many people do not consider other people to be intelligent enough to use Wikipedia with a grain of salt, yet they consider themselves to be intelligent enough to use Wikipedia properly,” Heilman observes. To rely on Wikipedia without any skepticism is to act as though every editor is as relentless, principled, and stubborn as he is.

Mary Reilley Clark's insight:

This is a great article for discussion among high school students. PR firms that hire editors to ensure a more favorable Wikipedia article? It shouldn't be shocking these days, but far too many people (not just students) use Wikipedia as their only source of information. I love the example of an Oxford University Press book that evidently contained content cribbed from the Wikipedia article! My 7th graders copying directly from the Wiki page -- complete with the numerical footnotes -- now have textbook writing as a career option.

9 Tools for Making Infographics in the Classroom

9 Tools for Making Infographics in the Classroom | Digital Literacy in the Library | Scoop.it

From Global Digital Citizen: "Creating great infographics need not be a chore, no matter if you’re a teacher or a student. Taking information and presenting it in an artful and visually appealing way has never been easier, thanks to Web 2.0 tools.

Before you dive in, here are some quick tips:

  1. Collect your data. If you have been collecting data, compile it all in a spreadsheet.
  2. Decide the best way to present your data (flyer-style, bar charts, line charts, Venn diagrams, histogram, scatter plot charts, flow charts, timelines, etc.).
  3. Design a rough sketch so you don’t end up flying blind.
  4. Pick your app and get to work!"
