Teaching ‘screenagers’ – how the digital world is changing learners-It's still Content

Teaching ‘screenagers’ – how the digital world is changing learners-It's still Content | Innovations in e-Learning |
Ahead of his talk at IATEFL 2012 with co-author Tim Falla about how best to exploit currently available digital resources, Paul Davies looks at how the digital world is changing learners. The term ...


"These are important issues for anyone who has to teach or design teaching materials. If screenagers really are a different breed, do they need a different approach? Should lessons be less mono-directional and more fluid? Should printed textbooks be consigned to the dustbin of educational history, along with slates, dunce’s caps and the cane? As with most important issues, the answers are debatable. But perhaps too much attention is being given to questions of format (digital vs traditional) and not enough to questions of content. Sure, an exercise on an iPad can be interactive; so can a conversation. Neither is guaranteed to be worthwhile – it all depends on the content..."

TEDxGrandRapids - Steve Rosenbaum - Innovate: Curation!

In a world of bandwidth and content abundance, we're overwhelmed with data, tweets, blogs, check in's and media. It used to be we surfed the web. Now the waves of the web are just to big...

The era that is ending is the "Me Web"..we have the beginning of the "We Web"

Flitering the Flood

King of content is Curation

The world needs thoughtful processors

Curation Ideas

* Choose Digital carfeully-what you choose to share adds value

* Listening is more powerful than speaking- absorb more and filter

* Embrace clarity-acknowledge we can't do everything- use the new tools

The web is becoming a human network- it's not facebook, google, apple-it is us.

Curating People is As Important as Curating Content - Here's Why

Curating People is As Important as Curating Content - Here's Why | Innovations in e-Learning |

This is one of those gems that I love to share. It was written by Gideon Rosenblatt in response to an earlier article written by Eli Pariser, "The Filter Bubble", which is about the way algorithms (based on our personal searches) affect the results that are returned to us, as a result, we're not seeing the whole picture.


"Computer algorithms aren't the only thing contributing to the 'Internet Filter Bubble."


**In the world of the information networker, curating content is only half the game. The other half is curating the curators.


**In that power to choose our connections, rests our ultimate power to reshape our information filter bubbles and radically improve our perception of reality.


**Who we choose to connect with in our social networks deeply affects our ability to see a diversity of information.  


My takeaway from this is that whereas technology may restrict the results returned to us by search engines, the other, and perhaps more important half of the equation is controlled by us!  It is well documented that we are more likely to influenced by our circle of friends and associates than by anything else that we may find (or that may find us!). 


By effectively curating our circles of influence, we increase the value of this ever important means of discovery and therefore of our entire online experience. 


**This in turn can make us far more effective and informative curators, when we widen our own circles.

You made my day! I always love reading and curating your articles this was definitely no exception. Thank you for always raising the bar and making us pay attention to what's really important.

Thank you for this Robin, it's greatly appreciated. It's exciting to watch and be a part of all this change, I'm sure you agree:-)

Yes Jan... I don't know exactly what you are referring to, but this the only sure thing we have today: this is time of fast and continuous change... so I am certainly enjoying the ride.

On another note: I would humbly suggest to consider posting shorter stories, especially when you are also pointing to the original, as what I am looking for from you, is not a rehash of what's in the article - outside of a 1-3 para excerpt - but the reasons why you are recommending it. You are already doing both, but it is overwhelming for me. Too much stuff, and I haven't even seen the original yet.

I would also gently mute some of the visual noise you create by heavily formatting with asterisks, bolds and big font sizes. In my case that doesn't help much. It actually hinders my ability to rapidly scan and check whether you have something good there.

I suggest to limit greatly the formatting options you use and to highlight only what is really relevant, because when too many things are highlighted, bolded, asterisked, none has any more an effect on me. It's like a crowd screaming: who do you help? :-)
