Why 'Digital Literacy' Can't Replace The Traditional Kind

Why 'Digital Literacy' Can't Replace The Traditional Kind | EFL Teaching Journal | Scoop.it

Using the Internet is “supereasy,” Eagle was quoted as saying in a much-discussed New York Times article. “At Google and all these places, we make technology as brain-dead easy to use as possible. There’s no reason why kids can’t figure it out when they get older.” What they won’t figure out is deep reading, advanced math, scientific reasoning — unless we teach them. While economically disadvantaged students may benefit from access to computers that they don’t have at home, more affluent kids are surrounded by technology.

Why You Need Digital Know-How –Why We All Need It | The European Business Review

The future of digital culture – yours, mine, and ours – depends on how well we learn to use the media that have infiltrated, amplified, distracted, enriched, and complicated our lives. I believe that learning to live mindfully in cyber culture is as impor­tant to us as a civilization as it is vital to you and me as individuals.

5 Reflections for Teachers Heading Into Summer Break

5 Reflections for Teachers Heading Into Summer Break | EFL Teaching Journal | Scoop.it

I believe we all want to engage our students in the creation and re-creation of their thoughts, ideas, hopes and dreams, that are relevant to the world they will live in. Not the world we were told was in store for us. Beyond the curriculum, we are in fact teaching our students life skills that will hopefully empower them to make smart choices for the rest of their lives.

The Clever Sheep: Seven Degrees of Connectedness

The Clever Sheep: Seven Degrees of Connectedness | EFL Teaching Journal | Scoop.it

What’s the most significant event that causes you to pay closer attention to the learners in your network? For me, it is meeting face-to-face. I’m more attuned to those people in my learning network whose voices are amplified because we met at a conference; exchanged stories; shared a meal. Fleshed out by personality and attitude, I find myself savouring the words and ideas I consume online.

MagSpreads - Magazine Design and Editorial Inspiration: Brockhaus Encyclopedia Infographics | EFL Teaching Journal | Scoop.it
Martin‘s work is inspired by his passion for complex data visualization and information design. He describes his work philosophy like this: "Information is beautiful and life without information is impossible. But it needs someone to filter the mass of information around us and turn it into something read and useable. This is what I do in my work: I create well structured Information design that is easy to use and fun to look at."

What is the theory that underpins moocs?

What is the theory that underpins moocs? | EFL Teaching Journal | Scoop.it

These are a few of the more prominent attributes of MOOCs that I’ve been involved with. As stated above, there is overlap between our model at that of Coursera/EDx. However, Coursera/EDx emulates the existing education system, choosing instead to transfer it online rather than transform it online. No doubt they will continue to evolve their model and we’ll continue to evolve ours.

Mapping a Personalized Learning Journey – K-12 Students and Parents

Mapping a Personalized Learning Journey – K-12 Students and Parents | EFL Teaching Journal | Scoop.it

Mapping a Personalized Learning Journey – K-12 Students and Parents Connects the Dots with Digital Learning is the first in a two part series to document the key national findings from Speak Up 2011. This report focuses on how today’s students are personalizing their own learning, and how their parents are supporting this effort. The ways that students are personalizing their learning centers around three student desires including how students seek out resources that are digitally-rich, untethered and socially-based.

10 Ways That Mobile Learning Will Revolutionize Education

10 Ways That Mobile Learning Will Revolutionize Education | EFL Teaching Journal | Scoop.it

We’ve found that the education industry needs new models and fresh frameworks to avoid losing touch with the radically evolving needs of its many current and potential new constituencies. These range from a generation of toddlers just as comfortable with touchscreens as they are with books, to college-aged men and women questioning the value of physical campuses, to middle-aged and elderly professionals hoping to earn new skills in their spare time to secure a new job in turbulent economic times.
