How Common Core Could Breathe New Life Into OER -- THE Journal

How Common Core Could Breathe New Life Into OER -- THE Journal | Digital Literacy in the Library | Scoop.it
Will the new state standards push more districts to start using open educational resources?
Mary Clark's insight:

Quote from Jeff Mao at the Maine DOE, who worked on developing OER for the state: 

"What we need are better platforms that allow for ease of iteration of content in order to provide personalization and customization for individual learners. We need better platforms that leverage data to help connect learners to the right content. What the publishing industry needs to do is to help all of us become better publishers. That's a service I think people would buy."

The Dos and Don’ts of Teaching Digital Literacy | Common Sense Media

The Dos and Don’ts of Teaching Digital Literacy | Common Sense Media | Digital Literacy in the Library | Scoop.it
Is there a right and a wrong way to teach social media in schools? Some administrators think so. Many schools across the country have banned the use of social networking platforms, but others are transitioning to a more proactive approach. Many experts and school officials say that abandoning the more reactionary responses to social media is the first step toward implanting a more effective digital literacy education. “The fact is, social media isn’t technology in the lives of our kids, but an essential aspect of their world. Social media isn’t ‘new’ anymore,” said teacher and education consultant Dan Haesler on his blog. “We can’t continue pretending that it is, and using this as an excuse for not addressing it. And by addressing it I do not mean banning it!” Haesler, a proponent of proactive social media education, posed an interesting question on his blog regarding social media and digital literacy education: what if we approached driver’s education in the same way? Taking this hypothesis one step further, Haesler came up with three conclusions: Click headline to read more--

Plagiarism and the link: How the web makes attribution easier -- and more complicated | paidContent

Plagiarism and the link: How the web makes attribution easier -- and more complicated | paidContent | Digital Literacy in the Library | Scoop.it

Nate Thayer, the writer who touched off a debate this week about how freelancers are compensated, found himself embroiled in another controversy on Friday when he was accused of plagiarizing large parts of the piece that The Atlantic wanted him to re-work for free. In his defence, Thayer and his editor said links weren’t included in the original version due to an editing error, a mistake they later corrected. This failed to satisfy some of the writer’s critics, however, including the author of the piece that Thayer based some of his reporting on.

 

If nothing else, the incident helps reinforce just how blurry the line is between plagiarism and sloppy attribution — and also how the the web makes it easier to provide attribution via hyperlinks, but at the same time makes it harder to define what is plagiarism or content theft and what isn’t.

 

To Jeremy Duns, who first blew the whistle on what he said was Thayer’s plagiarism, the case seemed open and shut: chunks of the article about North Korea and basketball, including a number of quotes, appeared to have been lifted straight from a piece by San Diego Union-Tribune writer Mark Zeigler on the same topic in 2006. And there was virtually no attribution of any kind in the original version of Thayer’s story, which appeared at the NKNews.com site, apart from one oblique reference to the Union-Tribune — and no links.

My dream is to have every student do an expert project over the course of a year, or semester, then have an expert fair where they can share their knowledge.  These tools would be helpful in presenting SMEs in several classrooms.
