Using Social Media to Teach Visual Literacy in the 21st Century Classroom

Using Social Media to Teach Visual Literacy in the 21st Century Classroom | Education | Scoop.it

That we have evolved our favorite forms of communication is obvious without more than simply watching our students walk through the hallways. It would be easy to demonize social media and each medium that it provides for human interaction. But it would be educationally valuable to embrace it, turning it into an opportunity for our students to develop an appreciation for the advanced cognitive skills they employ on a daily basis. Why not study the highly visual communication models connecting the thoughts that mean the most to them with the social networks where they live their lives?

Visual literacy matters


Visual literacy is the ability to:

  1. Process and make meaning of information presented in an image.
  2. Communicate our own ideas through principles of design.
  3. Create our own messages that capture our visual thinking in a way that conceptualizes problems to given solutions.
Ness Crouch's curator insight, March 28, 9:00 PM

Visual Literacy has a new emphasis in the Australian Curriculum. This is certainly a good article to give ideas for embedding some good quality practice in digital learning.

Wonderful Visual on SAMR As A Framework for Education 3.0 ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Wonderful Visual on SAMR As A Framework for Education 3.0 ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Education | Scoop.it

"Proponents of the sociolinguistic perspective to the study of literacy ( e.g.Paul Gee, Collin Lanksheare, Michelle Knobel, Brian Street, to mention but a few ) view the developments of literacy and with it education as a direct result to the sophistication of the social and cultural aspect of human life. Some of them like Collin and Michelle associate the evolution of education to that of the web and hence the nomenclature education 1.0 (related web 1.0), education 2.0 ( related to web 2.0), and education (3.0 related to web 3.0). This association, however is not haphazard for there are many commonalities between each pair."

For your weekend pleasure, here's a SlideShare program and each slide contains a story that is only 33 words. Yes -- only 33 words!


It just goes to show that yes, you can write and tell very short stories. While most of these are non-business examples, I bet you are creative enough to write 33-word stories for your business. Imagine populating those on your website and in emails. Or tweets. 


So here's the challenge -- share your 33-word biz stories (DUE SAT. 2/15) in the comment section below. I'll choose the top 3 winners and send each a free copy of my new book with Lori Silverman Business Storytelling For Dummies.

My biz story colleague Madelyn Blair at Pelerei submitted these 33-word stories. Thanks Madelyn! 1. He couldn’t read everything his boss read in 24 hours a day. Then he learned the secret. His boss didn’t read everything. He soared, relaxed, and left guilt behind.<br>2. The audience was restless after three presentations. Could she connect with this group of suits? Terrified, she began her story. The audience stilled to silence.<br>3. New players were joining the team. Where would they fit? As they told their stories, gaps suddenly were being filled. Ahh.<br>4. I didn’t know what to buy until she told me the story of the designer and his vision. I saw it, too. The decision became easy.

When looking at this map there area few things that stick out to me and not just the colors. Fistly what I founf interesting was that South America in relation to where we live is quite different. For example, The US economic status is High Class at $12195 or more for most of the East and West Coast and then it is dull in the middle. These facts compared to South America where they are mostly upper middle class at around $3946-12185 and a portion of them are the lower middle class which rings in at around $886-3945.

5 Important Web Tools Students Can Use to Create Educational Games ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Education | Scoop.it

"The gaming trend is gaining more and more ground within the educational landscape. Online games are  being integrated into students learning strategies and while they are not a game changer, they do seem to have a promising potential in education. As Dr Jackie argued , the use of games for educational purposes  have undergone three main phases and in each phase games have been repurposed in such a way as to align with the ethos of that phase. In education 1.0, online games which are nothing else but electronic worksheets were played in one unidirectional  way and there was only way correct way for players to win ; in education 2.0 commercial  games have made it into the educational scene and teachers and students started using them, examples of these games include: SIMs, World of Warcraft, Portal. However, in education 3.0, learners are not only using these commercial games in unique ways but they are also using several platforms to create their own games."

The Global Teacher

The Global Teacher | Education | Scoop.it

Global teachers (should) care about education as a whole, as well as their school and their classroom.  I just want to iterate that if the person only looks at sharing and learning globally, but cannot connect with those in their classroom or school, I would not consider them a “global teacher”.  

They just know that we are better when we work together, not just taking, but contributing.  They know what they share makes a difference for others, as well as knowing what they learn from others makes a difference for their school and students.

So where are you on the spectrum, and what type of teacher would you want in your school?
