New Media Literacies — Learning in a Participatory Culture

New Media Literacies — Learning in a Participatory Culture | Educational Technology and New Pedagogies | Scoop.it

"The New Media Literacies constitute the core cultural competencies and social skills that young people need in our new media landscape. We call them “literacies,” but they change the focus of literacy from one of individual expression to one of community involvement. They build on the foundation of traditional literacy, research skills, technical skills, and critical analysis skills taught in the classroom. If these New Media Literacies are learned – and they can be learned without computers in the classroom – they can form the building blocks for students’ participation in new media."

David Donat's curator insight, July 24, 2013 3:26 PM

Una bona presentació de la "Flipped Classroom": no és un mètode pedagògic, sinó una manera més d'enfocar l'aprenentatge, que pot anar bé en algunes ocasions i que en d'altres no tant. Es pot plantejar com un recurs més, combinable amb qualsevol altre.

La meva opinió és que els alumnes són tan diversos que no hi ha cap metodologia "ideal". Cadascun necessitarà eines i processos diferents i per tant, quantes més dinàmiques i metodologies s'utilitzin (i més flexibles siguin) millor s'atendrà a cadascun d'ells. No cal dir que amb ratios de més de 30 adolescents per aula tampoc es poden fer miracles.

Millennials Are Rewriting the Rules of Work and Entrepreneurship | Educational Technology and New Pedagogies | Scoop.it

HR and communication challenge s ahead... What do Millennials want? Flexibility and independence top the list, according to a new study, “Millennials and the Future of Work,” from oDesk.... Millennial workers want freedom and the flexibility to work how they want. Many Millennials have a “freelance” attitude. Almost nine in 10 (89 percent) say they prefer to work when and where they choose (compared to a corporate, 9-to-5 job). When comparing freelance work to “regular” jobs, Millennials say freelancing gives them more freedom to: - Work wherever they like (92 percent). - Work whenever they like (87 percent). - Work on more interesting projects (69 percent). - Travel while working (half say they’d prefer this to taking vacation time). You Might Have a Closet Freelancer on Your Staff Many Millennials are biding their time at regular jobs and freelancing on the side until the time is right to leave. Nearly three-fourths (71 percent) of those who work regular jobs want to quit to be entirely independent; 61 percent say they likely will quit within two years, and 17 percent say they definitely will....

Borders between disciplines have blurred. Interdisciplinary, multi-disciplinary, and trans-disciplinary models are gaining traction especially in areas where collaborative expertise is required and where the oucome is productive results. Disciplines have not become less important; rather the needs of programs and projects for the talents, knowledge, perceptions, and view points from multiple disciplines are required to tackle complex situations.

Professor Jill Jameson's curator insight, July 23, 2013 8:11 PM

Interesting reflections - are disciplines really becoming less important? Nigel Thrift argues that interdisciplinary and trans-disciplinary research is increasing, so although "disciplines will continue to exist, ... at the very least, they will become more porous and are more likely to mutate...."

The Trouble with Testing | DMLcentral

The Trouble with Testing | DMLcentral | Educational Technology and New Pedagogies | Scoop.it

Learning research consistently shows that an emphasis on test scores does not necessarily lead to gains in academic performance. Perhaps learning, with its long-term gains and diffuse experiences does not lend itself well to an economic model. Instead of focusing on test scores at the elementary and secondary levels, why not take a longer-term view? Why public education? What are our true goals for teaching and learning? When pressed, most politicians will state that the long-term goals of education are to develop a citizenry that maximizes contributions to society and economy; yet, our standard test measures typically seem unrelated to the higher-order qualities that lead to such engaged citizens.

TV shows recorded with a retweet

TV shows recorded with a retweet | Educational Technology and New Pedagogies | Scoop.it

While there are some detractors who believe that social media activity doesn’t translate into sales, there are others trying to find ways to monetize online interactions. We’ve already seen Soldsie enable its users to purchase items with a facebook comment, and now Brazil’s SKY television subscription service has launched #SkyRec, allowing Twitter users to record shows with a retweet.

 

Created in collaboration with AgênciaClick Isobar, the aim of the service is to engage the increasing portion of TV viewers who are being distracted by the internet. Customers are first required to log into their SKY account through the company’s website, in order to link their membership details with their Twitter handle. The service’s Twitter account tweets regularly about upcoming shows and customers who see a tweet about a show they want to record simply retweet the message, along with the hashtag #SkyRec. The user’s home recording device will then be automatically configured to record the program.

 

The scheme raises awareness of the SKY television programming schedule for those online, successfully engaging them with the service while they’re busy using an alternative entertainment medium. It also serves to promote the company among the followers of its customers, as well as enabling tweeters to share the TV shows they like with friends. Are there other ways to leverage hashtags for purposes beyond their traditional use?
