Using Social Media to Teach Visual Literacy

Using Social Media to Teach Visual Literacy | emerging learning | Scoop.it
With all the "sky is falling" cries about American students reading less, I often wonder why we don't track how much reading and writing students do daily on social media. Bring social media into your lessons is crucial to helping students develop critical thinking about the media many of them consume and create in large amounts every day.

A Curated Guide About The Best Places Where To Learn How To Code: Bento

A Curated Guide About The Best Places Where To Learn How To Code: Bento | emerging learning | Scoop.it

Robin Good's curator insight, April 27, 2:28 PM



Bento is a website that, thanks to its author Jon Chan and the many user contributions, has gathered, organized and curated the very best resources available online where you can learn how to code.


From html to javascript, ruby, php, Java, perl, Bento offers learning guidance for over 80 different technologies and coding languages. 


Here is how Jon Chan, a 23 years old who launched this project in September of 2013, describes Bento: 

"Bento is what I would have liked to have when I was learning to code.


I started learning to code when I was very young - about ten years old. Then, the only things I had available were what I could find online and through a few dense books.


Now, people have the exact opposite problem: how do you break through the noise and find what's actually valuable to learn?


This site is here to help you figure that out."

 

Bento is a perfect example of effective content curation as it does not simply collect and list all of the resources available to learn each language but it only suggests the very best ones, organizing them in easy, medium and hard and providing also "best of" / direct solutions that save readers lots of valuable time.


Free to use. 


Useful, simple and immediate to use. Well organized. 9/10

Blended Learning: 10 Trends

Blended Learning: 10 Trends | emerging learning | Scoop.it

There is mounting evidence that complementing or replacing lectures with student-centric, technology-enabled active learning strategies and learning guidance—rather than memorization and repetition—improves learning, supports knowledge retention, and raises achievement. These new student-centered blended learning methods inspire engagement, and are a way to connect with every student right where they are while supporting progress toward grade level standards.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 10, 6:24 AM

This detailed tutorial from California State University - Chico provides students with an opporunity to learn how to:'

* Investigate - What does this mean? To choose a topic you must first identify your topic. This section walks you through this concept, providing examples as well as having the student make decisions about specific areas based on what has been presented.

* Search -  Searching the web provides a vast amount of information that is unfiltered...so learn how to do effective and efficient searching, using key words and phrases, as well as learning about databases, scholarlly articles, popular articles and more.

* Locate - Finding information in a library or online requires that you undersand the system used to locate it and how to cite the resource. 

* Evaluate - Evaluating requires that you use higher order thinking skills and determine which information is accurate. The tutorial introduces the CRAAP test as a tool students may use. Is the information Correct, Relevant, Authority, Accuracy, and Purpose. Each "clue" is explored and you are given information to evaluate for each.

* Use - Learning how to put it together, taking the information you have learned it is time to communicate this to others. The form may vary but you still must be alert to issues such as plagiarism and the need to cite information. Again there are interactive components in the tutorial for students to practice with.

This is a great resource but it is written for the college level. It could be used with high school students and you might use sections with students in lower grades as a class tool.

The direction of evolution: The rise of cooperative organization

The direction of evolution: The rise of cooperative organization | emerging learning | Scoop.it

Two great trends are evident in the evolution of life on Earth: towards increasing diversification and towards increasing integration. Diversification has spread living processes across the planet, progressively increasing the range of environments and free energy sources exploited by life. Integration has proceeded through a stepwise process in which living entities at one level are integrated into cooperative groups that become larger-scale entities at the next level, and so on, producing cooperative organizations of increasing scale (for example, cooperative groups of simple cells gave rise to the more complex eukaryote cells, groups of these gave rise to multi-cellular organisms, and cooperative groups of these organisms produced animal societies). The trend towards increasing integration has continued during human evolution with the progressive increase in the scale of human groups and societies. The trends towards increasing diversification and integration are both driven by selection. An understanding of the trajectory and causal drivers of the trends suggests that they are likely to culminate in the emergence of a global entity. This entity would emerge from the integration of the living processes, matter, energy and technology of the planet into a global cooperative organization. Such an integration of the results of previous diversifications would enable the global entity to exploit the widest possible range of resources across the varied circumstances of the planet. This paper demonstrates that it's case for directionality meets the tests and criticisms that have proven fatal to previous claims for directionality in evolution.

Eli Levine's curator insight, June 15, 10:06 PM

Cooperation is the best way to improve, sustain, maintain, and repair.  Competition is what drives everyone and everything towards something different, be it competition for resources or competition against the elements around us.

 

I don't get what the point of competition amongst the species is for.  Part of cooperation, after all, is knowing what works, learning about what could work better or doesn't work, and then letting the negative or sub-optimal slip back beneath the waves of ignorance, such that the new ways can rise to prominence.

 

Change is the only constant in this universe of universes.

 

Yet cooperation, I think, yields the higher and stronger of the universal structures that are out there, even if it means that there are still losers and winners.  The only difference is the level of consent and consensus that's reached within the social, ecological, economical, and/or political landscape.  One way works towards what is best.  The other way simply yields what is best at competing, which is not the same as being the actual best solution to a given problem or condition.

 

Think about it.
