Structuring Personal Learning Environments for Students: Useful Guidance from Wendy Drexler

Structuring Personal Learning Environments for Students: Useful Guidance from Wendy Drexler | ICT4E | Scoop.it

...

The most interesting part of Drexler’s essay steps away from the particular technological tools and techniques which PLE’s entail and focuses instead on what this means for teaching and learning. Teachers, she explains, are no longer the primary or even the best source of information available to students, and our work must increasingly attend to supporting students in developing their skills and motivations for becoming themselves networked and sophisticated online learners. Consider as an example the way the student in the video above consults experts around the world on her subjects of inquiry.

Information Fluency Model

Information Fluency Model | ICT4E | Scoop.it

Digital Information Fluency (DIF) is the ability to find, evaluate and use digital information effectively, efficiently and ethically. DIF involves knowing how digital information is different from print information; having the skills to use specialized tools for finding digital information; and developing the dispositions needed in the digital information environment. As teachers and librarians develop these skills and teach them to students, students will become better equipped to achieve their information needs.
