Thanks for sharing this! Too bad he didn't mention the need for "digital citizenship" lessons in schools and at home.
Dave Webb's comment, June 20, 2012 5:23 PM
I agree, Diane, though my guess is he was coming at it from more of a "tech-savvy" dad than a "digital-literacy-savvy" dad. All the more reason for you to continue your great work at http://www.cyberwise.org!

New ‘Digital Divide’ Seen in Wasting Time Online

New ‘Digital Divide’ Seen in Wasting Time Online | Digital & Media Literacy for Parents | Scoop.it

The lack of digital literacy education for parents and teachers alike has a tremendous impact on how children use new media technologies. This contributes to a widening gap between usage for education vs. entertainment. The FCC is looking into spending $200 million on creating a "digital literacy corps" to train and support educators, students, and parents to use digital devices productively.

Core Dump: Learning Games

Core Dump: Learning Games | Digital & Media Literacy for Parents | Scoop.it

From the article: "There are so many apps that claim to be educational, but as Dan Donahoo has pointed out, not all educational apps are created equal. The hardest part is sorting through everything to figure out what works for your kid — sometimes the ones with the best educational content (or the best design/graphics/interface) aren’t the ones that your kids even want to play. Here are just a handful of apps that I’ve checked out lately; some fall farther along the “edutainment” scale than others."

12 Dozen Places To Educate Yourself Online For Free

12 Dozen Places To Educate Yourself Online For Free | Digital & Media Literacy for Parents | Scoop.it

From the article: "All education is self-education. Period. It doesn’t matter if you’re sitting in a college classroom or a coffee shop. We don’t learn anything we don’t want to learn.

 

Those people who take the time and initiative to pursue knowledge on their own are the only ones who earn a real education in this world. Take a look at any widely acclaimed scholar, entrepreneur or historical figure you can think of. Formal education or not, you’ll find that he or she is a product of continuous self-education.

 

If you’re interested in learning something new, this article is for you. Broken down by subject and/or category, here are several top-notch self-education resources I have bookmarked online over the past few years."
