Digital Literacy, Citizenship and Internet Safety

This is a great infographic for showing the thought process of finding information.

Terry Yelmene's curator insight, August 16, 2015 11:50 AM

A pretty well-reasoned, fundamental thought process for most knowledge work research.  This serves as an even better backward (there-to-here) model to guide the core research workflow process automation  a knowledge worker may want to devise, install.  Think work product-informed -> DevonThink structures -> DevonAgent w/'Active Filtered' automated searches.  The most important drivers here are - 'ethical' - (more than just multiple sources, a stage needs to be added at the work product stage to provide authenticity) and - 'bias' -  (a post automated search,  subsequent manual search for corroborating items selection to provide authority).

Abstract:

 

"This study explored the black box of technology integration through the stimulated recall of teachers who showed proficiency in the use of technology to support teaching and learning.More particularly, the aim of the study was to examine how these teachers use technologyin their lessons and to gain deeper insights into the multifaceted influences affecting theircurrent practices. In order to explore this black box, observations and stimulated recallinterviews with primary school teachers were conducted in schools which were selected bythe inspectorate on the basis of advances they had made in educational technology use.Stimulated recall interviews – a verbal reporting technique in which the teachers wereasked to verbalize their thoughts while looking at their own classroom practice on video –seemed to be a promising approach to increase authentic understandings of technologyintegration. The results emphasize that (a) the teachers involved in this study werepedagogically proficient and flexible enough to fit technology in with the varying demandsof their educational practices, (b) the teachers' ongoing learning experiences rather thantraining affected the development of the quality of their practices, and (c) the role of theschool and the broader context of teachers' personal lives played an important role. Byinterpreting the results of the study, recommendations are discussed for teacher technologyintegration and future research."

Barriers to Creativity in Education


Via Mary Perfitt-Nelson
Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

There are many barriers and the first is current design of schools. Even those who are talking about how they are changing school, are not. It is the same structure with new technology and that is a huge problem.

more...
Allan Shaw's curator insight, August 7, 2013 9:44 PM

Schooling itself is a systems technology where resources (people, time, places, curriculum, assessment etc) are geared to attain goals some of which are explicit and some implicit. Creativity has never been an explicit goal, perhaps quite the oppositie (confromity and standardisation) has been the case. Creativity needs a culture and systems that are sensitive to and allow for some ambiguity, error, iterations on the same theme and patience. I'm not sure the current systems can manage that even with the adjustments suggested in this graphic.

Social media’s impact in schools | eSchool News

When it comes to social media in schools, most students don't hesitate to collaborate with one another. But some schools and districts still worry about safety and responsible use.
Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

"Social media helps students learn collaboration and develop important 21st century and workforce skills, gives them a positive view of technology, stimulates engagement and deeper understanding of school materials, increases “academic” networking, and has a positive influence on students’ school activities."

 

All of these are accurate. What I also took out was social media helps in these things. They are not givens without effective guidance from adults.
