News Literacy: Critical-Thinking Skills for the 21st Century

News Literacy: Critical-Thinking Skills for the 21st Century | Differentiated Instruction & Assessments | Scoop.it

"Every teacher I've worked with over the last five years recalls two kinds of digital experiences with students.The first I think of as digital native moments, when a student uses a piece of technology with almost eerie intuitiveness. The second I call digital naiveté moments, when a student trusts a source of information that is obviously unreliable. How can these coexist? How can students be so technologically savvy while also displaying their lack of basic skills for navigating the digital world?"

Seth Dixon's curator insight, April 28, 2014 4:00 PM

This is a nice article with some practical advice but it also can that helps us conceptualize the thinking skills that our students are going to need in the future (with a classic photo that embodies 20th century news literacy).  Previously, I've written on this same topic, with some strategies to how to help students assess the validity of online information with geographic content (with a series of maps and images).  I know I've been duped before, and it's okay to admit that to your students; but we need to teach students how to be critical readers as they are swimming in an ocean of digital information of variable quality.  This is why I see content curation as an important part of modern education; it is a way to teach student the tools to assess the quality of information for themselves.  They will be gathering, organizing and synthesizing digital information for rest of their lives.

Critical Thinking Questions Students Should Be Able to Ask ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Critical Thinking Questions Students Should Be Able to Ask ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Differentiated Instruction & Assessments | Scoop.it

Critical thinking requires a special set of questions that have the ability to activate higher order thinking skills and therefore enable students to evaluate, synthesize, apply, analyze and interpret information. These questions are usually open in nature and tend to foster divergent thinking. Prince George’s County provides a very good explanation of each of these kinds of questions with examples of each category.

"Gaming is an important component of the child's cognitive and emotional growth. In his wonderful book " What Video Games Have to Teach Us About Learning and Literacy. Second Edition: Revised and Updated Edition " http://amzn.to/1bOeA48 James Paul Gee argued for the importance of game play for the learners' developing personalty and the honing of their thinking capacities. Gee analyzed several of the popular video and online games like Sims City, and War of Warcraft, to mention but a few , and found out that the learning design informing these games  are behind their sweeping popularity among gamers in all around the world. Gee further claimed that investing time in playing these games does impinge positively on the learning skills of kids. It, among many other things, help them develop strategic thinking, problem solving, active critical thinking, and meta-level thinking. Check out this post http://bit.ly/19nKi7H  to learn more about the learning principles embedded in game play as conceptualized by Gee."

Empathy For the Devil: How Teaching #Argumentation Can Develop Student Empathy for Opposing Viewpoints

Empathy For the Devil: How Teaching #Argumentation Can Develop Student Empathy for Opposing Viewpoints | Differentiated Instruction & Assessments | Scoop.it

"The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) have turned this heated debate into a full fledged conflagration. The Common Core Writing Standards differentiate between persuasion and argumentation.  Persuasion is like a rant where a writer convinces his audience based upon his beliefs by appealing to emotion. Argumentation, conversely, uses a point-counterpoint structure addressing the other side of the debate and grounding an argument with logic and factual evidence. While my school begins to implement the CCSS as our standards for student assessment, the debate in the English department has shifted to how do we teach argumentation. Do we teach argumentation using writing templates or do we guide our students how to develop their own argument? Meanwhile, Irene and Jordan have become further entrenched in their positions."
