On November 1st, Pew Internet released a report called “How Teens Do Research in a Digital World”. I spent time reading the fifth section of the report, which relayed teacher comments about literacy, reading, focus, overexposure, and adaptation. Parents who are curious about how digital technologies are impacting the classroom will find a variety of perspectives to consider. The report can be downloaded via PDF, or viewed online.

Here are two points of view written in the report, along with a graphic about what skills teachers consider most valuable for students to have in the future ...

Fantastic Resource: Reading Like Historians

Fantastic Resource: Reading Like Historians | Educational Material, Psychology, and More | Scoop.it

That said, check out this wonderful collection of videos from The Teaching Channel around “reading like a historian.” We’re brought right into the classroom, and the issues of teaching content-area reading are really front and center along a few threads: an overview, the evaluation of sources, putting history in context, and corroboration of information. I am definitely sharing this with collection with my colleagues.

» 3 Myths About Creativity That Just Won’t Quit - World of Psychology | Educational Material, Psychology, and More | Scoop.it
There are many long-held beliefs about what creativity looks like and who’s actually creative. The sad part about these myths is that they have the power to pilfer a person’s creativity.

For instance, if you think creativity is a gift granted to a lucky few, the last thing you’ll probably want to do is bolster your creativity biceps.

In this post, experts dispel three very common myths about creativity.

Negative News Stories Affect Women’s Stress Levels but Not Men’s

Bad news articles in the media increase women’s sensitivity to stressful situations, but do not have a similar effect on men, according to a study undertaken by University of Montreal researchers at the Centre for Studies on Human Stress of Louis-H.

 

I did a study some years ago at Sonoma State on the effects of the post 911 climate on the community that I lived in at the time, and it was clear that the elderly had the hardest time with the content bad news TV, mostly because they couldn't get away from it to replace the horrific images with new ones. Don't know if this study at the Centre for Studies on Human Stress took age into account. Would be interesting to research further.

Co-reading with children on iPads: Parents’ perceptions and practices

To follow up on insights revealed in our Print vs. E-books QuickStudy, the Joan Ganz Cooney Center conducted a second QuickStudy to survey parents about reading books with their 2-to-6-year-old children.  In this survey we assessed family ownership of devices on which e-books can be read and included a set of questions about reading e-books with children since market research indicates these are emerging trends (Rainie et al., 2012). 

 

Because the Apple iPad has demonstrated a quick rise to dominance in the tablet marketplace, this report delves into iPad owners' practices and perceptions surrounding the use of e-books in their kids' literacy development.  We found noteworthy patterns of perceptions and use of e-books among the families in this sample who own iPads.  These patterns warrant broader conversations and pose important questions for researchers and designers.
