Google Docs & Research: How-To?

Google Docs & Research: How-To? | ICT | Scoop.it

When students are doing research, they sometimes struggle with citing their sources or moving beyond a quick search with Google.com. The Google Docs Research Pane helps to facilitate searching for and citing sources. By going to Tools –> Research, the Research Pane pops up on the right hand side! You can search Google, images, scholar, quotes, and dictionary! By dragging and dropping certain content (e.g. images), not only will the material appear, but a footnote (in MLA, Chicago, or APA format).

Are teens behaving badly online?

Neil Andersen, President of the Association for Media Literacy (Ontario) concurs. “If we gauge social media effects by statistics, they are mostly positive: the crime rate is down, STDs are down, the dropout rate is down.” Andersen admits that some teens engage in dangerous behaviour on social media, but encourages parents not to overreact. “Teens are simply doing on social media what they have done for decades, using social relationships to experiment and test behaviours and values they will use as adults” says Andersen.

Deeper Learning: Defining Twenty-First Century Literacy

Deeper Learning: Defining Twenty-First Century Literacy | ICT | Scoop.it

How about that last characteristic of a 21st-century learner, effective communicator? Being literate means one who is advanced at reading, writing, speaking, and listening. And, in all schools -- deeper learning driven or not -- literacy is a curriculum fundamental.

A defining look at where teaching and learning is going, and what really makes a digitally literate student.

Very nice sharing. Thanks

Is enough of this being done in the classroom? I wish I could say this is happening in my kids' classrooms here in Germany. These literacies need to be taught much, much sooner.

Aimed more at high school students, nevertheless, useful ideas for kids to create more than the traditional book report, using iPads.

Upon hearing that they will have to read another book students usually roll their eyes and moan in disagreement. So to make the reading process more fun for them we let them chose their own book and their own creative assignment.
