A scoop for myself here. This is a very useful guide to infomation literacy teaching. Easy to dip into and has a search function so you don't have to scroll through every page. Some very useful tips and links to tools that can be put to use in the language classroom e.g. QR codes, Prezi or social tools such as Slideshare. Examples of lesson plans are provided as are benefits and issues to consider when introducing students to digital media.

No Longer a Luxury: Digital Literacy Can’t Wait

Digital literacy is about more than just adding technology into the teaching we already do. The following common teaching practices that we have seen in classrooms as researchers and as parents of school-age children do not help develop digital literacy and may even kill students’ motivation to develop their savvy use of technology and the Internet. We must stop these practices. Immediately.

Bonnie I agree parents are important today so many seem to be tuned out to the needs of there children, it is a lot more than just material needs, that parents need to provide, and with the prevalence of single parent homes, it is even harder. I feel as much for the parent of these homes as I do for the children it can not be easy wearing all the hats.
Bonnie Bracey Sutton's comment, September 4, 2013 4:12 PM
I have long hours of work in places where the parents did not or would not participate. Sometimes they did not know. Some groups like Wired Safety , have Mom groups.. or PTA groups. Thanks for your comment.

We continue to use technology to reinforce 19th century teaching practice' | Educommunication | Scoop.it

why [has] technology, to date, had very little impact on improved learning outcomes? This could be because we continue to use technology to reinforce 19th century teaching practice to meet out-dated assessment models. Most of the world’s curriculum and assessment systems are based around fact recall rather than actually demonstrating that you have learned something and can deploy it within a problem-solving situation.

"Another Brick In The Wall" - Pink Flloyd

The Planetary Archives Digital University's curator insight, November 17, 2013 3:12 PM

Our  education system is nothing more than child-care with some 

indoctrination thown in.


See/hear "The Wall" by Pink Floyd  (40+ years ago.)


Let the children play until they are old enough to decide what they are interested in learning. That's completely different than training them from Day 1 to "sit still, be quiet, and obey authority." Training a 5-year old to become a "worker" or 'Businessman"  is not education, but it may be child abuse.

"Qu'est-ce qu'un hoax ? La plupart des messages poignants, révoltants ou alarmants qui circulent sur Internet sont des hoax. Il ne faut pas faire suivre un message reçu parce que son contenu "pourrait être vrai", mais prendre du recul et si nécessaire valider l'information auprès d'une source sûre, d'autant que tous les hoax ne sont pas sans dangers, y compris pour la sécurité de votre ordinateur."

Digital Media in Primary Schools: Literacy or Technology? Analyzing Government and Media Discourses

"This article examines the political and the media discourses concerning the Portuguese governmental program responsible for delivering a laptop named “Magalhães” to all primary school children. The analysis is based on the official documents related to the launch and development of the initiative as well as the press coverage of this topic. The main purpose is to recognize the dominant public discourses and to find out what the media select for the debate in the public sphere. This analysis was done with a particular focus on the critical media literacy framework. The results reveal that the press highlighted the negative aspects of that program and that this framing could have a strong impact on how it was accepted and understood by the public opinion. Analysis also reveals that the governmental initiative was predominantly driven by technological objectives, in particular the access to technology, rather than media literacy objectives."

What do we really know about the effects of screen time on mental health?

What do we really know about the effects of screen time on mental health? | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"Public Health England this week announced that too much time in front of TV and computer screens is causing increasing psychological problems, such as depression and anxiety, in children. The report (...) suggests that the amount of time spent playing computer games was negatively associated with wellbeing in children – in other words, their general mental and physical health, resilience and the extent to which they are happy or worry about different aspects of their lives. The effects, particularly on mental health, were most pronounced for those children who spent more than four hours a day using some sort of screen-based technology".

Revoluciones en red

Revoluciones en red | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"(...) La prensa lleva años debatiendo cuál es su nuevo modelo de negocio, incluso algunos se atreven a plantear una imprescindible transformación de producto más allá de las obvias metamorfosis a las que obliga el multimedia. La compra del Washington Post por Jeff Bezos no hace sino agitar esta polémica. Pero… y si la cuestión básica fuera ¿qué papel reclama la sociedad para los medios cuando se enfada con ellos por estar ausentes de sus cambios, de su vida? Contestando a esta última pregunta seguro que se halla la respuesta a las anteriores".

Keys to Better Communication

Keys to Better Communication | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"At times we take the ability to communicate for granted. We’ve been capable of speaking for most of our lives, so shouldn’t conversation flow easily? Yes and no. Talking is simple. Communicating is complex. Talking is making noise. Communicating is connecting with someone. While most people can speak, not everyone can communicate. Therein lies the challenge."

Media Literacy: Learning Not to Hate the News

"In some ways, we are slaves to the news. But there are things that we can do as conscientious listeners, watchers, and readers of news that can make us more effective and knowledgeable about the world around us. It's called media literacy and it describes the set of skills we all have (or hope to have) that allow us to "access, analyze, evaluate, and communicate information" from a wide variety of media. It's the ability to discern fact from fluff, and information from entertainment. It's an important skill, like knowing how to read."

Generazione 2.0: Addio alla televisione | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"Il primo cellulare arriva a nove anni. Internet è una calamita di tempo e di incontri. La tv piace ma al piccolo schermo si riserva poco più di un’ora al giorno. E i videogiochi sono sempre più quelli online. I ragazzi italiani si tuffano nei media affascinati da quanto è sinonimo di 2.0 e insofferenti all’idea di essere spettatori in un mondo che è parte del loro Dna. Nativi digitali, li definiscono i sociologi. E loro sono i protagonisti del libro bianco sul rapporto fra media e minori che l’Autorità per le garanzie nelle comunicazioni è in procinto di pubblicare."
