This is worth checking out, especially if you use YouTube with students or encourage them to create their own channel.

Nik Peachey strikes again.  I back his statement that teachers and students need to be aware of YouTube's privacy.  Especially if it is being used in the classroom.

The plain-Jane QR code had a hi-tech beginning – Toyota used them in their manufacturing process for scanning automobile components. From there, QR codes have made the journey to even fashion ramps.

Schools that Practice Learning-Literacy | Farnsworth Teachers | Scoop.it

In this environment innovation becomes a commodity, the ability to resourcefully learn becomes the defining foundation of literacy, and the principal goal of formal education is to produce learners.  In this environment pedagogies shift from best teaching practices to best learning practices.

PLNs must become each person's personal reference library - and what better place to teach to use and acquire a library than at school. Best learning practices indeed.

Creating Games for Journalism

Creating Games for Journalism | Farnsworth Teachers | Scoop.it

Games mock realities that, at their best, can make players feel an emotion more powerfully than any other medium. You are the on-screen actor, and you control the game's plot through your actions. Having control means you're responsible, within obvious bounds, for what happens in the game, so achievements, failures, consequences and the emotions those come with, belong to you.


Via Nik Peachey
Farnsworth ELA's insight:

This seems like a great way to teach kids, but also to get them to teach their peers. We know that if you can successfully teach someone, then you truly understand the skill.

Good article on connecting video and computer games to developing journalists awareness of stories. there are also quite a few links and insights which could be useful for language learning too.

Joe Pereira's curator insight, August 15, 2013 4:45 AM

It's good to see at least a mention of Twine for creating CYOA games -although not mentioning Inform 7 or Quest 5 for creating parser-based IF is a huge oversight IMHO. Professor Denniz Jerz has been using Interactive Fiction/Inform 7 to teach Journalsim for many years

Schooled by Google: How Google Apps is penetrating education [infographic] | Farnsworth Teachers | Scoop.it
Education is a notoriously slow adopter of technology, but Google Apps is growing quickly, if not virally, doubling over the last two years.

Via Gust MEES
Farnsworth ELA's insight:

Our English department uses Google Apps for all of our word processing and presentations. Students can do peer editing, and we can give more timely feedback. Also, there is no longer the excusses of "I lost it" or "My printer doesn't work." My colleagues and I share calendars and slideshows as well as create our common assessments. It is great that we don't need to be in the same place.

This article enlightened me about digital literacy and the three types of digital literacy according to like Bélisle's three models of literacy: functional, socio-cultural and transformational.

Patricia Daniels's curator insight, July 1, 2013 6:18 AM

Although this article relates to higher education, being aware of what digital literacies are; what level of digital literacies you and your students have and how to improve them, is also relevant to the ELT context. Be careful when introducing new technologies. Don't cognitively challange your language students to the extent that the technology is hindering their language learning. If you're convinced that a particular tool is going to add value to their learning, then perhaps first design a lesson or two around it to ensure that you and your students are comfortable with it. This can prevent unneccessary frustration and anxiety.

Richard Evans's curator insight, July 6, 2013 1:46 PM
