The Importance Of Mobile Learning In (And Out Of) The Classroom

The Importance Of Mobile Learning In (And Out Of) The Classroom | Information for Librarians | Scoop.it
There has always been at least some sort of disconnect between how things like mobile learning are taught in a classroom and how things work in the 'real world'.

Susan Grigsby @sksgrigsby's curator insight, April 19, 2013 3:11 PM

From the article: The 21st Century workforce will be filled with people who have grown up with devices, and are used to having easy access to search engines, sharing and collaboration are the norm, and creative freedom is king. Shouldn’t our classrooms represent a version of this too?

Absolutely! What's the hold-up? IMHO it isn't just funding. There's a fundamental disconnect between the generation teaching and the generation being taught - how do we narrow the gap?

Sandra Carswell's comment, April 20, 2013 11:41 AM
We narrow the gap by bringing the teachers up to speed. How? By providing a device and training and requiring them to participate. After all, to continue to be a great teacher, you must continue to be a learner, it goes hand-in-hand.
Susan Grigsby @sksgrigsby's comment, April 22, 2013 12:16 PM
Agreed. Becoming a teacher does NOT mean abdicating the responsibility to continue to be a learner - sometimes from our own students!

In a widespread effort to support teachers and students in the tricky art of evaluating information, NoodleTools has made freely available its Show Me Information Literacy Modules:http://www.noodletools.com/guide/showme/

 

With a mix of vibrant images, visual annotation and text, the modules are designed by educators at NoodleTools to engage students in information literacy and the research process. What constitutes credible information? How does source type contribute to relevance, authority and point of view? How do I evaluate and cite born-digital images and online sources?

 

Over twenty full modules are available, addressing source and website evaluation, digital literacy skills, plagiarism prevention and ethical writing. There are three progressive levels to choose from (Starter, Junior and Advanced) for elementary through university students.
