A Beautiful Classroom Poster on Close Reading | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Beautiful Classroom Poster on Close Reading | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Information Literacy | Scoop.it

Close reading is definitely a "survival skill" particularly in a world drowned in information. Close reading is all about reading differently, it is reading for deep understanding through paying attention to what others would normally oversight. Being a close reader entails focus and dedication to your reading material. It empowers readers to delve deeper into the latent meanings of text searching for cues that make the reading  a totally different experience one that resembles the detective wok. Close reading is also about critical reading, reading that does not take things at face value but rather investigates for what is hidden between the lines.

Melissa Marshall's curator insight, December 19, 2013 8:53 AM

Super interesting. Is social media making us more narcissistic or is it enhancing a latent preoccupation with self - i. e., instead of the mirror, or selfies are now evident to a wide audience? What will be the effect on kids who feel they have to present a certain view of themseves to the world in order to be accepted?

In the past few years, businesses have rushed to use social media. About 94 percent of all businesses now use some form of social media to promote their brand and engage with customers. To be successful businesses need to define their social media goals, know their online audience and have to realize that social media is a marathon not a sprint.

Patterson also explores the crucial role of jounalism in shaping how we understand our news... Journalists have a mandate to provide information we trust so educating journalists to negotiate complex policy issues and provide news stories we can trust is an important consideration.

Steven Flis's curator insight, December 16, 2013 1:35 PM

No surprise here that the countries that are more well off generally have less of a gender gap. One thing that i like to point out about this article is that the united states came in 23rd which i think is pretty humerous since we pride outselfs on our rights and equality but were not even in the top 20 countries in the world when it comes down to equality between genders. The biggest surprise of this article though has to be nicaragua coming in 10th even though every country around it scored poorly. hopefully the nicaraguans can teach their fellow costa ricans and houndurans how to close the gap.

Illustrative Chart on Project Based Learning Vs Problem Based Learning | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Illustrative Chart on Project Based Learning Vs Problem Based Learning | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Information Literacy | Scoop.it

Project based learning and problem based learning are two didactic approaches to learning that are often used interchangeably to refer to the same thing: engaging students in authentic learning activities. This truism does not always hold true. In a learning task that is problem based, the focus is on finding solutions to the  problem posed  through applying learned strategies and in so doing the process of arriving at the solution is, in and of itself, an integral part of the overall learning taking place . Whether a learning activity is authentic or not does not really matter from a problem based learning perspective because often times 'fictitious scenarios' are purposefully designed to provide learners with a contrived environment to work on their ill-structured problems.

Creating, sharing and reusing learning objects to enhance information literacy | Russell | Journal of Information Literacy

Creating, sharing and reusing learning objects to enhance information literacy

 

From June 2010 until the present, a suite of online reusable learning objects (RLOs) has been created by staff at the Institute of Technology Tallaght (ITT Dublin) library covering a range of information literacy (IL) competencies. These RLOs have helped to facilitate student transition from second to third level, advance IL and enrich the student learning experience.

The purpose of this paper is to outline the development of these RLOs and how the resources have been shared, reused and repurposed to enhance IL progression. A review of recent literature explores some of the key issues around the creation of digital learning resources and best practice, as well as the pedagogical foundations on which the learning objects are built. The design, development and implementation of the RLOs and the collaborative working arrangements that the digital resources have helped to foster are also outlined and the authors examine the issues and challenges experienced by the project team during the course of the RLO development.

A Primer On Using Games To Teach

A Primer On Using Games To Teach

 

by Rosa Fattahi, WizIQ

A key element to ensuring any successful pedagogy is student engagement.

However, keeping students motivated and actively involved can be difficult. Besides the basic challenges of maintaining students’ interest and participation in class, today’s teachers also have to deal with growing numbers of students and the increased distraction from smart phones and other personal devices.

One good way to keep students engaged in the learning process is by varying class exercises to include a combination of lectures, individual assignments, group work, computer activities, videos, and other pedagogical tools like games. Games are interactive, fun, and appealing to most students, and they also offer a number of specific benefits to the learning process.
