How To Become A Better Online Researcher - Edudemic

How To Become A Better Online Researcher - Edudemic | Education, Technology, and Educational Technolgy | Scoop.it
When we ‘research’ things now, we generally aren’t referring to spending time in a library – or even referring to spending time online accessing specific library or school research databases. The word ‘research’ largely refers to the act of typing words into your internet search bar and seeing what the Wise Old Web tells you. …

How Do We Teach Digital Literacy to Digital Natives?

How Do We Teach Digital Literacy to Digital Natives? | Education, Technology, and Educational Technolgy | Scoop.it

C.J. Kettler writes: "Is it possible for our students to be both digital natives and digitally unaware? Young people today are instant messengers, gamers, photo sharers and supreme multitaskers. But while they use the technology tools available to them 24/7, they are struggling to sort fact from fiction, think critically, decipher cultural inferences, detect commercial intent and analyze social implications."

Using social media to follow news stories is a great way to help students (and adults) develop critical thinking and digital literacy skills.  Our recent wildfires served as a great example.  Twitter gave us some timely information, but I also read a lot of misinformation and spam.  Teaching digital literacy and using examples that interest students isn't that hard!

Reading Writing Responding: What's So Digital About Literacy Anyway?

Reading Writing Responding: What's So Digital About Literacy Anyway? | Education, Technology, and Educational Technolgy | Scoop.it

Aaron Davis writes: "In a post titled, 'The Importance of Modeling Positive Use of Social Media', +Chris Wejr suggested that schools need to do more to both model the appropriate use of social media, as well as promote more positive stories. This got me thinking about some of the other things that we may do personally online , but not necessarily model all the time in school. One such practise is that of reading and responding online. So often students are told to use tracks and be active readers, to write regular journal reflections, but this usually starts and stops at the physical book. When are students getting the same opportunity to read and respond online?"

Mary Reilley Clark's curator insight, June 13, 2014 1:03 PM

Lots of great stuff in here to ponder.  The blog post itself is a great answer to how reading digital content is a different skill than reading print--do you wander off to the embedded links as you're reading? Do you read the entire post, then go back and visit the links? I find myself down a rabbit hole too often, clicking links, reading, clicking more links.  That works fine for me, but would that work for a student trying to gather information for a research project? Online reading definitely feels more scattered to me, as I am easily distracted. Does that matter to students researching? Do we need to highlight the differences for them? I think at least making students aware by modeling online reading would be helpful, as they can reflect on how they  interact with print and digital information.

Curation as Digital Literacy Practice

Curation as Digital Literacy Practice | Education, Technology, and Educational Technolgy | Scoop.it

Ibrar Bhatt writes: "Digital curation therefore is not just about finding relevant material, although that is a significant part of it, but is also about creating a specific and unique experience by utilising the resulting materials which then become contextualised within a new space. A curator, therefore, whether she is a journalist-by-proxy such as Popova or a student completing an assignment in a classroom, not only collects and interprets, but also creates a new experience with it. In this respect, curation is a process of problem solving, re-assembling,re-creating, and stewardship of other people’s writing."

Technology and Graduation Rate: A Direct Correlation ~ Huffington Post

Technology and Graduation Rate: A Direct Correlation ~ Huffington Post | Education, Technology, and Educational Technolgy | Scoop.it

by Matthew Lynch


"...technology has made it possible for students who fall off the traditional path to jump back on and finish what they spent most of their childhood working towards. This may be in the form of taking remote classes from home, remedial classes in on-campus computer labs or even by enrolling in full-time online schools, public or private. The technology available for these options benefits students who face difficulties with a normal school schedule including teenage parents, students with short-term or long-term illnesses, teens with substance abuse struggles, or those who had poor academic performance due to learning disabilities or bullying."

What is interesting is that other sources indicate there is a growing digital divide. Could it be both are happening? We have some communities graduating students in greater numbers and others struggling. Is it possible what we look for is what we find in research sometimes?

Social media sites have given us the ability to reach a global audience, and have increased the average user's means to persuade and influence. We are no longer just consumers of media, but content creators and distributors, as well as editors, opinion makers, and journalists."

Where to Start When Starting a Blog ~ NY Times | Education, Technology, and Educational Technolgy | Scoop.it

Q. There are so many platforms for blogging out there. Can you suggest a few?

A. Start your search by thinking about the type of blog you want to have and how much control you want to have over the look and domain name. Free blogging services usually have a set of standard templates and easy controls to get started, but the design is usually not terribly flexible. Paid services often offer more design control, feature management and tools to block spam and other unwanted messages in the comments section.- more
