Challenge yourself, challenge your students.   Digital, movement-oriented, interactive, creative, and very simple.   This is going to be cool.

My Students Don't Know How to Have a Conversation

My Students Don't Know How to Have a Conversation | Digital Information and Communication Literacy | Scoop.it
"Students’ reliance on screens for communication is detracting—and distracting—from their engagement in real-time talk."
W. Bradley Gooderham's insight:

When does #digitalliteracy begin to diminish learning in oral and written communication?  How can we mitigate the seemingly erosional effects of ubiquitous communication #media?  

 

I think that we can take a more formalized approach to teaching #oratory, #rhetoric, interpersonal communication, and use tech- and non-tech- time to balance the skill sets that we know we want our students to gain.

Have a great day.

W. Bradley Gooderham's insight:

Although it comes with some issues of bias, learning is very much leaning towards video, and in particular, <3 minute videos.   


IteratED will be using many different technologies to impart our lessons and we also want to live our philosophy.   If you are interested in working with us as an Associate Teacher, submit a traditional resume but please feel free to express your creativity in other ways as well.   We are seeking educators who think outside the box and challenge the status quo.   Show us how you can innovate and use existing resources to challenge and engage your students.

The Trust Engineers

The Trust Engineers | Digital Information and Communication Literacy | Scoop.it

Hi all, How a tiny group of social engineers are making our online relationships kindler and gentler, whether we like it or not.

W. Bradley Gooderham's insight:

Hi all, 

  Seldom do we consider the nature of the design behind the information that we see and with which we interact on the Internet.   In a very interesting, and at times disturbing, podcast, Radiolab takes a look at Facebook and how they analyze, test, and attempt to modify user behaviour.   


Information is power, and now we ask, "Who has the information?" and "What information are we receiving and how?"


Food for thought.  Have a great day!

Why Podcasting is Primed For Mobile Learning Infographic - e-Learning Infographics

The Why Podcasting is Primed For Mobile Learning Infographic presents how mobile learning is changing the education experience and podcasting is leading the charge.
W. Bradley Gooderham's insight:

Podcasting is such a versatile medium for learning.   The best part is that you can take it anywhere and learn nearly anything.  


Do you want to learn about photosynthesis while sitting in a tree?

How about a lesson on fluvial dynamics while swimming in the pool?


With a mobile device and a podcast your learning is unlimited...BUT...who will instill in you the curiosity to go out and search for the content?  


What moment in your life, maybe not in a school at all, sparks your sense of ##wonder that drives your to find out more and more and then run out to share it with the world?


Technology is just a tool, and a powerful one at that, but there is much more behind successful learning and it all comes from inspirational people.


Have a great day!

How YouTube and Internet Journalism Destroyed Tom Cruise, Our Last Real Movie Star

How YouTube and Internet Journalism Destroyed Tom Cruise, Our Last Real Movie Star | Digital Information and Communication Literacy | Scoop.it

"It's hard to imagine now, but six months before I posted that Tom Cruise video, that viral spread was practically impossible," Baio says. "That was a pivotal point, 2005.


A weird thing happens when people watch a viral video. In catching up with a cultural touchstone, the clip everyone's talking about at the water cooler, we assume we're on top of the whole story. After all, we've seen what everyone else has seen. Whatever gets edited out isn't part of the conversation.


Tom Cruise and Oprah talked on TV for 43 minutes. "Tom Cruise Kills Oprah" was 15 seconds. Even the longer YouTube clips of Cruise on Oprah's couch clock in at only four minutes. Yet it was the latter two that were shared, discussed and remembered.


With all context gone, we're judging soundbites of Cruise on a screen. We forget he was experiencing a live, long and loud interaction — a literal stage performance before a raucous crowd."

W. Bradley Gooderham's insight:

Before judging the potential "celeb-gossip" nature of the article, take a minute to read the description above.  It isn't so much about Tom Cruise as it is about Digital Citizenship and the how the rise of social media has forever changed how, when, where, and through whom, we access information.


This article is about digital identity, curating one's public/online image, privacy in a digital world, media ethics, and a brief history of internet 2.0 Social Media.


The ubiquitous nature of digital recording and online sharing has had an important impact on our society and it is a topic that I think every individual should learn about.  

Beware the soundbite news clip!  It rarely tells the whole story or provides sufficient context to judge the matter accurately.
