Despite all your planning, hard work, grading at home, housekeeping in the classroom and (physical and virtual) paperwork world, and killer teaching skills, learning isn’t going to happen if your students aren’t really paying attention.

Karl Popper teoriza que hay tres mundos de conocimiento:
El primer mundo es el universo físico. Consiste en la verdad real y la realidad que tratamos de representar, como la energía , la física y la química . Mientras que existimos en este mundo , que no siempre percibimos y representamos correctamente.El segundo mundo es el mundo de nuestra percepción subjetiva personal, experiencias y la cognición . Es lo que pensamos acerca del mundo al tratar de trazar, representar y anticipar hipótesis con el fin de mantener nuestra existencia a lo largo de los cambios de la vida. El conocimiento personal y la memoria configuran este mundo, que se basa en la autorregulación, la cognición, la conciencia, disposiciones y procesos.El tercer mundo es la suma total de los productos abstractos objetivos de la mente humana. Se compone de “artefactos” tales como libros, herramientas, teorías, modelos, bibliotecas, ordenadores y redes . Es una mezcla muy diversa. Mientras que el conocimiento puede ser creado y producido por el “Mundo 2″, sus artefactos se almacenan en el mundo 3. Popper también incluye la herencia genética.

Summertime is a great time for teachers to recharge their batteries a bit. After spending the entire school year encouraging students to learn, some rest is definitely in order.

Widely understood to be essential to success in the workplace and modern life, digital literacy is beginning to emerge as a necessary component of curricula across the globe. As current undergraduates have never known a life without the internet, it’s only natural that universities should nurture their familiarity with technology, encouraging its use in teaching and learning. Instructors should also be prepared to offer guidance on what students aren’t as familiar with–turning their technical skills into skills for lifelong learning and employability.
But where does one begin? Teaching digital literacy is about more than just integrating technology into lesson plans; it’s about using technology to understand and enhance modern communication, to locate oneself in digital space, to manage knowledge and experience in the Age of Information.
"Digital literacy isn’t about knowing computers inside and out; it’s about using technology to change the way you think. If critical thinking skills haven’t yet become a part of your students’ digital citizenship, it’s time to rethink your teaching strategy."
These are vague descriptions, as are most of the descriptions you’ll find of digital literacy in blog posts and journal articles online. What teachers need, more than a fancy synopsis of how digital publication affects the meaning of a text, is a practical and applicable guide to helping students think productively about the digital world.
Below are the top do’s and don’ts we’ve come across–in research and in our own experience–when it comes to making students digitally literate.

"Editor’s Note: We recently discovered the Bay Area’s Prospect Sierra School’s interesting learning model that prioritizes 6 ideas for learning in the 21st century. There is, of course, no single “best” way to pursue “21st century learning”–nor any learning at all for that matter. But seeing the way other inspired educators pursue the idea can teach each one of us a lot. In this model, we appreciate the inclusion of self-knowledge, as well as moving past the idea of content to true disciplinary knowledge–seeing knowledge in context and application."
