South West Grid for Learning Trust - Digital Literacy

South West Grid for Learning Trust - Digital Literacy | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
SWGfL Staying Safe provides e-Safety information and resources for parents, schools and young people, whilst also presenting the latest e-Safety news.

 

Curriculum in a Nutshell 
Digital media and technology are evolving at a dizzying pace, bringing with them extraordinary opportunities as well as real risks for young people. Young people are using the immense power of the Internet and mobile technologies to explore, connect, create, and learn in ways never before imagined. These technologies have changed the pattern of social relationships, their construction, negotiation and scope. The concept of “friends” and friendship has changed with the boundaries of privacy changing and evolving. Issues that emerge with this 24/7 “connected culture” – from identity theft, to cyberbullying, to uncertainty about which information to trust online – are surfacing both in schools and at home.

SWGfL is providing this FREE Digital Literacy and Citizenship Curriculum to help educators empower their students and their school communities to be safe, responsible, and savvy as they navigate this fast-paced digital world. 

The curriculum:

 

- Introduces reliable, research-based information to students about digital media and their impact


- Helps pupils / students explore the complex issues of our connected culture


- Empowers pupils /students to think critically about the ways they use digital technologies as they build digital literacy skills for life


- Develops a resilience in pupils / students to act appropriately and safely in their use of digital technologies

Blogging in the 21st-Century Classroom

Blogging in the 21st-Century Classroom | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

First and foremost, student writing is improving by leaps and bounds. When I read their blogs (which, by the way, are mature, insightful, funny and engaging), I don't find myself pulling my hair out over the careless mistakes they make in formal papers. Not every post is perfect, but the majority are well written and free of grammar and usage issues that I am so familiar with seeing in their other work. If they become sloppy, all I need to do is politely comment about it on their blog, and I don't see it again.

How time have changed. whats your input on this?

Nalya Ovshieva's curator insight, May 8, 2013 9:03 AM

This is a useful experience of developing writing skills.  As a follow-up activity, writing by way of blogging could enable students to get a feel for the issue studied, and assume responsibity for public writing.

Blake Turnbull's curator insight, May 21, 2013 12:39 AM

First and foremost, I think it is safe to say that student writing is improving by leaps and bounds when it comes to technology. Blogs are a brilliant way to for students to keep an ongoing "journal" where they can write about whatever they want and improve their writing skills as a result. This article looks at a teacher who introduced blogging to her junior students and found huge improvements as a result. "When I read their blogs (which, by the way, are mature, insightful, funny and engaging), I don't find myself pulling my hair out over the careless mistakes they make in formal papers". Blogs are motivational and more interesting than conventional writing assignemnts, and students are consequently more open to learning from them as a result.
