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."

Based on an English teacher's personal & professional exploration pondering such questions as:

- Will books become entirely digital?

- What is the difference between reading digitally or in print?

- What do we lose and what do we gain?

- How do we define literacy and what does this mean in the context of an always on, content rich society that is highly social?

News Literacy Project Helps Students Sharpen Critical Thinking Skills [Editor Publisher]

News Literacy Project Helps Students Sharpen Critical Thinking Skills [Editor  Publisher] | Digital & Media Literacy for Parents | Scoop.it

The newspaper industry would quickly dry up without journalists to keep the news flowing, so it makes sense that publishers and reporters would want to make an investment in the future of their industry. Enter the News Literacy Project (NLP).

Founded in 2008 by 29-year veteran journalist and Pulitzer Prize winner Alan Miller, the project reaches out to young people in middle and high school by bringing seasoned journalists into classrooms to help sort fact from fiction in the digital age.
