Teens and Libraries in Today’s Digital World

Lee Rainie, Director of the Pew Research Center's Internet Project, discussed the project’s research about younger Americans and how libraries fit into their lives. He discussed seven key insights from the research about the special world of teens and young adults, and how they differ from older Americans.
Mary Reilley Clark's insight:

Some intriguing facts about teens and library use.  I'll stick with the optimistic predictions!

Blogging About The Web 2.0 Connected Classroom: Happy Birthday YouTube! Tips and Tricks For Doing More With Our Favorite Video Service | Digital Literacy in the Library | Scoop.it

Steven W. Anderson writes: "Many districts are realizing the potential that YouTube learning can have in the classroom. There are lots of great videos and channels out there on 1000's of topics. I have put together a list of some of my favorite tools to use with YouTube. Some are for the creation end, while some are for the consumption end. Overall they hopefully will give you a good start on getting more out of your favorite video service."

Mary Reilley Clark's insight:

Great tools from @web20classroom! I just used Tubechop to share something with a teacher, and it saved me so much time!  This would be great to make those less than 10 second clips you can share to introduce a class.

Alice Keeler writes: "Screen sharing is one reason I really like Google Hangouts on Air. A Google Hangout (GHO) is a video conferencing tool with some neat ways to integrate Google products and other add on's."  

Mary Reilley Clark's insight:

I wish I'd read this before we did our Google Hangout on Air with Kevin Honeycutt.  There are several great tips in here that I didn't know, and it would have made the Hangout a little cleaner visually. Alice Keeler does a great job outlining all the features of a GHO, so we are ready for our next one!

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!

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 Reilley 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.

How to Infuse Digital Literacy Throughout the Curriculum

How to Infuse Digital Literacy Throughout the Curriculum | Digital Literacy in the Library | Scoop.it

Jen Carey writes: "The problem students face in the new world is no longer access to information, but rather how to deal with the glut of content that confronts them when they google a research topic. If we want them to effectively navigate online material (as 21st century learners), then research now needs to include not only “traditional” methods and materials, but digital ones as well. We need to ensure that they know how to evaluate a website, a blog post, a tweet, a Facebook entry."

Mary Reilley Clark's insight:

Thoughtful summary of the issues we need to deal with every day to ensure students learn to think critically about resources.  I don't think we can ever say anyone is digitally literate, as the digital landscape changes almost daily!

#Bashtag (Or Why We Need to Teach Social Media Literacy) | Digital Literacy in the Library | Scoop.it

 "The key point that I want them all to grasp--one that Sesame Place and the NYPD failed to--is that no one can control the narrative on social media.  Whether we like it or not (and I'm guessing Sesame Place doesn't) social media is somewhat like the Wild West right now. So let's teach our students how to use it responsibly, or at least, make them aware of how even adults are still learning the social media ropes!"

I've been ruminating about social media for a while, and these two events seemed to clarify things for me.

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 Reilley 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.
