Experts predict the Internet will become ‘like electricity’ — less visible, yet more deeply embedded in people’s lives for good and ill

Via Derek Wenmoth
Maria Persson's insight:

Predicting where we are at now wasn't an easy task for those before us.  The tsunami of information, the transmission, curating and manipulation of that has required a new way of behaving, working, thinking and yes - predicting what the next 20-50 years will bring! Worth a read - thanks Derek for sharing this.

Derek Wenmoth's curator insight, March 19, 6:29 PM

Always expect some useful, thought provoking stuff from Pew Internet. The basic premise that is that the Internet will become like electricity is something we've spoke of for a while - but I believe we're entering the age where it will genuinely become the '5th utility'. This, of course, has huge implications re the digitial divide that currently exists. That divide used to be about access - now it's about engagement. 

Ralph Springett's curator insight, March 21, 12:36 PM

Agree that the Internet is becoming embedded in our lives but educators need to offer products which use this 'power' in more learner-centric ways. Like moving from a wringer-washer to an automatic washing machine.

The pedagogical foundations of massive open online courses | David G. Glance, Martin Forsey & Miles Riley - First Monday

In 2011, the respective roles of higher education institutions and students worldwide were brought into question by the rise of the massive open online course (MOOC). MOOCs are defined by signature characteristics that include: lectures formatted as short videos combined with formative quizzes; automated assessment and/or peer and self–assessment and an online forum for peer support and discussion. Although not specifically designed to optimise learning, claims have been made that MOOCs are based on sound pedagogical foundations that are at the very least comparable with courses offered by universities in face–to–face mode. To validate this, we examined the literature for empirical evidence substantiating such claims. Although empirical evidence directly related to MOOCs was difficult to find, the evidence suggests that there is no reason to believe that MOOCs are any less effective a learning experience than their face–to–face counterparts. Indeed, in some aspects, they may actually improve learning outcomes.

Audrey's curator insight, March 21, 4:30 PM

Curating is about finding and selecting information in order to learn about a subject. Youngsters can be encouraged to do this  pre-school.  This motivational 21st century skill can be encouraged at home. with educational games toys and and books which stimulates interest.  For example children can learn about  science by interacting with Chemistry Lab; Horrible Science - explosive experiments; Newton's Cradle and Science Museum.  By the time they get to school they are already full of curiosity and ready to increase their knowledge.  Audrey curating for www.homeschoolsource.co.uk

Monica S Mcfeeters's curator insight, March 30, 6:27 AM

By Robin Good,

Here's a short first-hand report highlighting how an 8th grade social studies class teacher (Terri Inloes) has fully leveraged the content curation potential to let her students dive, discover and make sense of topics (in this case social reform movements) that they had not studied before. All by themselves.


Here the steps taken to make this happen:


a) By using the Question Formulation Technique, the teacher prepared pairs of photographs representing each of the reform movements, one picture dating back to the late 19th century, and another representing where that social reform movement stands in today’s society. 


b) After checking out all of the photos, students settled on the pair of pictures that most caught their interest.


c) They brainstormed and refined a set of specific questions, and then shared their thinking with the class. 

d) With the feedback received they selected the topic which they would curate. 

e) At this point students planned their research strategies. By using 5 different graphic organizers from the book Q Tasks, by Carol Koechlin and Sandi Zwaan, students were allowed to choose the one that they thought would help them the most in planning their keyword search strategies. 


f) Students were assigned WordPress blogs and provided basic instructions on how to use them to 

curate and publish their research work.


g) Discovery and real learning kicked in as students proceeded in collaborative groups to research and document their chosen topic. 


You can see some of the outcomes that this assignment produced right here:


General Conclusions

Mental Health Treatment

Prohibition Acts

A very inspiring example of content curation can be effectively applied in the classroom with impressive results. 


Highly recommended. 9/10

How I see the SAMR Model - Allanah King

How I see the SAMR Model - Allanah King | Digital Literacy & Tertiary Education | Scoop.it

"Everyone is talking about the SAMR model for eLearning.

 

A principal emailed me this week wanting to know more about the concept so I emailed her with a reply but thought it may be useful to add my thoughts more publicly too.

 

The SAMR model is based on the thinkings of Ruben Puentedura.

 

In a nutshell here is how I see what the SAMR letters stand for.

 

S- Substitution- would be you just used an iPad as a flash sort of text book for the kids to read and copy from.

 

A- Augmentation- you might have the text book read to you via Speech Selection so that is moving things up a notch.

 

M- Modification- You might make your own book using Book Creator that includes graphics, audio, video and hyperlinks etc

 

R- Redefinition- You might have students all collaborating making pages for a Book Creator including graphics, audio, video and hyperlinks etc and combining them in one book which you then publish it on iTunes."


Via John Evans
Maria Persson's insight:

I find the most fascinating part of this model is the M-modification which is not just changing an old paper ducument and digitalizing it - it is turning the document into a learning tool that barely resembles the original...room for creativity and reflection and perhaps collaboration with others.  Allanah - nice work with presentaion using 'Explain Everything' app :-)

Maria Persson's insight:

Not sure about the whole 'native versus immigrant'...#Prensky's idea, upon reading his book, does not lead me to believe in the term 'native' as so many seem to misconstrue this term (a tad out of whack).  I'm not young and my adult daughter says that it's like I've been born with tech literacy and she wasn't?!

No Longer a Luxury: Digital Literacy Can’t Wait

Digital literacy is about more than just adding technology into the teaching we already do. The following common teaching practices that we have seen in classrooms as researchers and as parents of school-age children do not help develop digital literacy and may even kill students’ motivation to develop their savvy use of technology and the Internet. We must stop these practices. Immediately.

New Zealand has a long history distance education in the schools sector, beginning with The Correspondence School over 90 years ago. Similar to many jurisdictions, as technology has evolved the schools sector has also evolved in how it has used that technology to provide learning opportunities at a distance.

Project RED is a national research and advocacy plan to investigate how technology can help us re-engineer our education system.
Maria Persson's insight:

Although Project RED resides in an American context, K-12, it still has some very pertinent findings that should impact the way in which we view and do education in our own settings.  The seven key findings from this comprehensive study are useful platforms for further conversations, whatever our contexts:

 

1).  Project RED has identified the nine key implementation factors (KIFs) that are linked most strongly to the education success measures.

2). Properly implemented technology saves money.

3). 1:1 schools employing key implementation factors outperform all schools and all other 1:1 schools.

4). The principal’s ability to lead change is critical. Change must be modeled and championed at the principal level.

"This is book supports an emerging trend toward emphasizing the plurality of digital literacy; recognizing the advantages of understanding digital literacy as digital literacies. In the book world this trend is still marginal. In December 2007, Allan Martin and Dan Madigan’s collection Digital Literacies for Learning (2006) was the only English-language book with “digital literacies” in the title to show up in a search on Amazon.com" (Lankshear & Knobel, 2008, Sec2:2).
