Howard Rheingold: Teaching Critical Thinking in Age of Digital Credulity

Howard Rheingold: Teaching Critical Thinking in Age of Digital Credulity | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

By HOWARD RHEINGOLD August 21, 2014 - 8:12am 


"I’ve been writing about digital media for nearly 30 years, and over that time, I’ve been asked over and over again by readers, critics, scholars and myself: “Do these personal computers, digital networks, webs of unfiltered information, mobile attention magnets do us more good than harm — as individuals, families, communities, and societies?” I have come to believe that the answer is: “It depends on how many people know how to use these technologies to their own benefit and that of the commons.”

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

I always get a kick out of Rheingold's writing and thinking.

Sparking thought!

Steve Vaitl's curator insight, August 26, 9:41 AM

Excellent resource for EVERYONE online!! In today's age of information, it is no longer an issue of recalling information. "Just Google it" is much more than simply a catchy phrase. Nearly every bit of information can be obtained in seconds, somewhere online. The issue has become finding the proverbial "needle in the haystack".

It has become mush more important to understand how to filter the good from the bad and the ugly.

Crap detection resources could be most helpful.

Technology Integration Matrix

The Technology Integration Matrix (TIM) illustrates how teachers can use technology to enhance learning for K-12 students. The TIM incorporates five interdependent characteristics of meaningful learning environments: active, constructive, goal directed (i.e., reflective), authentic, and collaborative (Jonassen, Howland, Moore, & Marra, 2003). The TIM associates five levels of technology integration (i.e., entry, adoption, adaptation, infusion, and transformation) with each of the five characteristics of meaningful learning environments. Together, the five levels of technology integration and the five characteristics of meaningful learning environments create a matrix of 25 cells as illustrated below.

The infographic style of presentation sit atop a deep set of resources.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

One of the things I do as an online instructor is offer my students evaluation comments at the end of each module.  This infographic captures the basic guidelines I follow when writing assessment comments. 


Special thanks go to the very talented Renee Williams, a recent graduate of or E-Learning and Online Teaching Graduate Certificate Program for writing the text for this infographic.

Giving feedback in online learning can be challenging.  This basic rubric/tool could be of great assistance.

Turnitin - What's Wrong with Wikipedia?

Turnitin - What's Wrong with Wikipedia? | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Educators are well aware of the shortcomings of relying on crowd-sourced content for authoritative information, yet the fact that Wikipedia continues to reign supreme as a top match in Turnitin suggests that students don't see things the same way. In short, what constitutes "research" for students today has come to mean "Googling."

Allan Shaw's curator insight, February 28, 2013 10:32 PM

Gaining access to turnitin's resources is a little clunky but worth it. The webinar is 30 minutes long and worth the time. The related SEER resource is also good.
