How Digital Learning Is Becoming The Fourth Literacy - Edudemic

How Digital Learning Is Becoming The Fourth Literacy - Edudemic | 21st Century Teaching Tidbits | Scoop.it
Reading. Writing. Math. Those are the big ones, right? Up until recently, a lot of people would have probably said that was correct. But since it is 2013 and so much of our lives happen online, digital literacy is being added to the list.

Anabel Gonzalez's insight:

For better or for worse, technology is here to stay.  I say it's mostly better if we are teaching our kids to use it appropriately and productively.

If you are an early adopter looking for something to play with over Christmas vacation, the new build of Google Sites may be an early present for the holidays.  Like all things Google it's rolling out while rolling on down the tracks.  At the moment, there's no simple conversion of old sites to new sites, but that's promised for 2017.  Worth a look if you're riding the G-Train.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, March 30, 2016 10:45 AM
When I taught struggling readers, I found they did not understand the text well when it was read by a computer. Teachers need to find ways to read with students and explore their reading comprehension. As students improve their comprehension, using digital tools might be a practical and necessary step in the process.

How Robots in English Class Can Spark Empathy and Improve Writing

How Robots in English Class Can Spark Empathy and Improve Writing | 21st Century Teaching Tidbits | Scoop.it
Mention robots to many English teachers and they’ll immediately point down the hall to the science classroom or to the makerspace, if they have one. At many schools, if there’s a robot at all, it’s located in a science or math classroom or is being built by an after-school robotics club. It’s not usually a fixture in English classrooms. But as teachers continue to work at finding new entry points to old material for their students, robots are proving to be a great interdisciplinary tool that builds collaboration and literacy skills.

“For someone like me who teaches literature by lots of dead white guys, teaching programming adds relevance to my class,” said Jessica Herring, a high school English teacher at Benton High School in Arkansas. Herring first experimented using Sphero, essentially a programmable ball, when her American literature class was studying the writing of early settlers. Herring pushed the desks back and drew a maze on the floor with tape representing the journey from Europe to the New World. Her students used class iPads and an introductory manually guided app to steer their Spheros through the maze.

Herring, like many English teachers, was skeptical about how the Sphero robot could be a useful teaching tool in her classroom. She thought that type of technology would distract students from the core skills of reading, writing and analyzing literature. But she decided to try it after hearing about the success of another English teacher across the country.

The Evolving Role of the Teacher

The Evolving Role of the Teacher | 21st Century Teaching Tidbits | Scoop.it

More teachers today are providing opportunities for their students to connect and learn in powerful ways. There is an increasing focus on collaboration, competency-based learning, use of open resources, project-based learning, and learning environments are shifting to support these new opportunities. These shifts are accelerated by access to technology that has transformed how we learn and interact with one another.
