The Essential Elements of Digital Literacies [ebook]

The Essential Elements of Digital Literacies [ebook] | Interactive Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

I’m delighted to announce that the latest iteration of my e-book The Essential Elements of Digital Literacies is now available.This takes us to v0.99! The text is 99% complete, with only a small appendix to write. I also need to work on some design elements.

Those who invested in previous versions have already received their free update, according to the OpenBeta process I devised (or at least they should have done – ping me if not!)

Anne Whaits's insight:

@dajbelshaw 's research is a must read for those new to digital literacies. In our own institution we have found the 8 Essential Elements of Digital Literacies a very useful framework as we develop these skills amongst both our students and teaching team.

Other useful resources from Doug include:

I tried it out. It has some good applications, but I couldn't get the embed code to work in our Sakai LMS. It also froze up when I used a YouTube video - so that limits its usefulness. Check it out and see if you have better results.

Jordan Funke's curator insight, June 11, 9:08 AM

This presentation details six highly creative and technology based ways that teachers could incorporate design into their classroom, and use it for assessment. The ideas are as follows: flipbooks, mindmaps, photoquotes, infographics, flashcards and social bookmarking. I like this article a great deal because it in itself is a great example of using technology to design a visually appealing presentation that presents information in a more creative and user-friendly way. It is a designed solution to the problem of getting readers to engage with your content in an information-saturated society!

How Mobile Learning Works

How Mobile Learning Works | Interactive Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Ever wonder how mobile learning works? This is a quick guide to how it functions, what the methodology is behind it, and more.
Anne Whaits's insight:

According to author, Saurabh Tyagi, the Framework for the Rational Analysis of Mobile Education (FRAME) model is used to describe the mobile learning process from three aspects:  Device, Learner and Social. It is the  interaction of Device, Learner and Social that attempts to define mobile learning, which itself is an ever-evolving process.Mobile capability can enhance learning by facilitating interaction and collaboration, creation of a learning community and providing access to a variety of online resources in real time.

Increasing Interaction in Online Learning Environments

Increasing Interaction in Online Learning Environments | Interactive Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Focusing on the qualities of effective online teaching, here are a collection of real strategies to increase interaction in online learning environments.
Anne Whaits's insight:

@jaymelinton shares strategies for increasing interaction in online environments based on these three categories as defined by Moore (1989):

Learner-instructor interaction; Learner-content interaction; Learner-learner interaction.

She makes a case for strong "teacher presence" in the online learning space; PBL to encourage student/learner engagement with content; and synchronous & asynchronous class discussions to develop a collaborative learning community.

New Media Literacies — Learning in a Participatory Culture

New Media Literacies — Learning in a Participatory Culture | Interactive Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

"The New Media Literacies constitute the core cultural competencies and social skills that young people need in our new media landscape. We call them “literacies,” but they change the focus of literacy from one of individual expression to one of community involvement. They build on the foundation of traditional literacy, research skills, technical skills, and critical analysis skills taught in the classroom. If these New Media Literacies are learned – and they can be learned without computers in the classroom – they can form the building blocks for students’ participation in new media."

Anne Whaits's insight:

 

The New Media Literacies - core cultural competencies and social skills = Play, Performance, Simulation, Appropriation, Multitasking, Distributed Cognition, Judgment, Transmedia Navigation, Networking, Negotiation and Visualisation.

How well are we doing in developing these competencies/skills ourselves and with our students?

German Bustos's comment, September 6, 2013 2:43 PM
Is there no need for a common minimum? It looks great the idea of a personal "playlist" of education topics, but if education should not give you something in common with the people you leave with, how can we built a common thing a "res publicas". Which are the boundaries or restriction of a total customized education? Every one will have the same liberty? even little kids? Even poor people? Even people with disabilities who need help to learn?
