Using Social Media to Teach Visual Literacy in the 21st Century Classroom

Using Social Media to Teach Visual Literacy in the 21st Century Classroom | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it

That we have evolved our favorite forms of communication is obvious without more than simply watching our students walk through the hallways. It would be easy to demonize social media and each medium that it provides for human interaction. But it would be educationally valuable to embrace it, turning it into an opportunity for our students to develop an appreciation for the advanced cognitive skills they employ on a daily basis. Why not study the highly visual communication models connecting the thoughts that mean the most to them with the social networks where they live their lives?


Via Nik Peachey
Alfredo Corell's insight:

Visual literacy matters


Visual literacy is the ability to:

  1. Process and make meaning of information presented in an image.
  2. Communicate our own ideas through principles of design.
  3. Create our own messages that capture our visual thinking in a way that conceptualizes problems to given solutions.

tuXccoaching's curator insight, January 14, 2014 8:23 AM

Si queremos un cambio en nuestra educación, debemos basarlo en el aprendizaje del pensamiento crítico.

 

 

El pensamiento crítico en el alumno es crear esa forma de pensar mejorada que se consigue a través de una acción reflexiva,mediante el establecimiento de preguntas ante situaciones o problemas, llegar a conclusiones y buscar soluciones, mediante evaluaciones y comprobaciones bien razonadas.

 

 

 

El alumno debe aprender a pensar con una mente abierta, verificando todas las soluciones y analizando sus perspectivas,interactuando con los demás, esto nos dará como resultado un pensador crítico y ejercitado.

 

El pensamiento crítico implica movimiento, proactividad y participación.

 

 

Para conseguir este objetivo debemos motivar a los alumnos a pensar críticamente, mediante, la innovación del docente, crear un buen ambiente en el aula, facilitar buen feedback, reconocimiento de logros y promover la creatividad.

 

 

Y como dice Jean Piaget...

 

 

"El objetivo principal de la Educación es formar hombres capaces de hacer cosas nuevas que no repitan simplemente lo que otras generaciones han hecho, hombres que sean creativos,que tengan inventiva y que sean descubridores.


El segundo objetivo de la Educación es formar mentes capaces de ejercer la crítica, que puedan comprobar por sí mismas lo que se les presenta y no aceptarlo simplemente sin más"

Best Practices by Teachers for the Flipped Classroom

Best Practices by Teachers for the Flipped Classroom | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it
List of some of the best practices by teachers for the Flipped Classroom.

Via Gust MEES
Alfredo Corell's insight:

The Flipped Classroom approach is been widely implemented in schools and colleges around the world. It is even considered as one of the greatest achievements of 21st century education.

The concept behind it is to reverse the traditional classroom practices with the aid of technology. Students access the already prepared lecture materials at home, in advance of the class and in the class they engage in structured class activities to work through problems with their teachers’ help, further their knowledge and learn through collaboration with fellow students. For the Flipped model to be successful, teachers before its implementation need to assess whether it is appropriate for their curriculum and students. They need to see if their students will be receptive to the new learning environment and upon implementation and use, teachers should employ effective practices to keep the model functioning successfully.

Flipped learning advantages

Tammy Morley's curator insight, January 9, 2014 1:32 AM

Love the idea of flipped learning - so much potential.

Sharla Shults's curator insight, January 28, 2014 9:20 PM

Flipped classroom is a classroom in which students view the lecture components of the class at home, then work with the teacher in class on projects and what previously would have been called homework.


What a flipped classroom model does?
• Students watch lectures at home at their own pace, communicating with peers and teaching via online discussions.
• Concept engagement takes place in the classroom with the help of the instructor.
