Great article to share as an introduction to the connections between media literacy and information literacy.  School librarians need to make sure to connect the digital sources with the traditional information sources.

Vince Vaughn and Co-stars Pose for Idiotic Stock Photos You Can Have for Free | Digital and Media Literacy | Scoop.it
Stock photos have a bad rap. They're campy and cheesy and the butt of plenty of jokes. But what's great about them is they're often the catalyst for promotions or gags—sort of a comedic blank slate. Enter the new Vince Vaughn movie Unfinished Business, which comes out Friday.

There’s a right and a wrong way to use videos in the classroom. Not all videos are primed for instructional use, and not all instruction lends itself to video. However, pairing a great video with the tools students need to engage with it can lead to a deeper understanding of or alternate perspective on what’s being taught.

News Literacy: Critical-Thinking Skills for the 21st Century

News Literacy: Critical-Thinking Skills for the 21st Century | Digital and Media Literacy | Scoop.it

"Every teacher I've worked with over the last five years recalls two kinds of digital experiences with students.The first I think of as digital native moments, when a student uses a piece of technology with almost eerie intuitiveness. The second I call digital naiveté moments, when a student trusts a source of information that is obviously unreliable. How can these coexist? How can students be so technologically savvy while also displaying their lack of basic skills for navigating the digital world?"

Seth Dixon's curator insight, April 28, 2014 4:00 PM

This is a nice article with some practical advice but it also can that helps us conceptualize the thinking skills that our students are going to need in the future (with a classic photo that embodies 20th century news literacy).  Previously, I've written on this same topic, with some strategies to how to help students assess the validity of online information with geographic content (with a series of maps and images).  I know I've been duped before, and it's okay to admit that to your students; but we need to teach students how to be critical readers as they are swimming in an ocean of digital information of variable quality.  This is why I see content curation as an important part of modern education; it is a way to teach student the tools to assess the quality of information for themselves.  They will be gathering, organizing and synthesizing digital information for rest of their lives.

Commenting on Obama's declaration of high-speed Internet "in nearly every public school" in the context of President Clinton saying virtually the same thing in 1996, Luis Ubinas makes some astute observations on our progress. AND notes that the key is the library & librarian. True. No matter how well-connected & speedy the Internet is, there is still a dire need for someone in the school to TEACH KIDS HOW TO USE IT PROPERLY.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, June 17, 2013 6:53 PM

So there is a digital divide.

Susan Grigsby @sksgrigsby's comment, July 5, 2013 11:43 AM
A digital divide AND an instructional divide. When libraries are left unfunded for years at a time and librarians are fired, laid off, or shoved back into the classroom then valuable information literacy instruction is lost to countless students.
