Off to study raising children in this Digital Age

Off to study raising children in this Digital Age | Digital & Media Literacy for Parents | Scoop.it
Recently, my youngest child asked a question about love and God. He quickly realized from my reaction that he must have said something clever. As I reached for my laptop, he said, "Are you going to write what I said on Facebook? Do not write it there!"

 

I was stunned. In fact, I was going to post his thoughts and solicit comments. But even a 5-year-old can assert intellectual property rights. And I respected his wishes.
This is an emerging gray area in parenthood: How much do we share of our children's lives when chats around kitchen tables have been replaced with chats on social networks.

Learning to Read in the Digital Age | ChildUp | Digital & Media Literacy for Parents | Scoop.it
From the article:
"E-readers like iPads and Kindles are not only changing how we read, they’re changing how we learn to read. Technology’s role in literary development is the topic of an undergraduate course being taught this summer at Rutgers–Camden.

The course, “Children’s Literacies,” considers the ways in which literacy has expanded beyond learning to read and write, as a child must negotiate traditional textual and visual formats such as picture books as well as websites and handheld devices. "
