(Im)Material girls living in (im)material worlds: Identity curation through time and space | NWP Digital Is | Internet 2013 | Scoop.it

"NWP is proud to be a supporter of Global Conversations in Literacy Research, a free and open-access series of webinars with literacy researchers world-wide.

 

The Digital Is community might be particularly interested in the next webinar, January 20 at 3:00 p.m. ET, with Julia Davies from the University of Sheffield. Julia's presentation draws on a project looking at the role of Facebook in the lives of a group of fashion conscious trainee hairdressers living in a city in the north of England. 

 

The research has an ethnographic texture; Dr. Davies, shared in the young women’s Facebook spaces and took part in their conversations. Facebook was the lens through which she viewed their lives and through which she traced interactions and events."

sarspri's insight:

The National Writing Project (NWP) is a fine bunch of folks, documenting all kinds of ways to express oneself (both teachers and students) via text and in combination with other digital modes of expression and communication.

Literacy Journal: The Silent Classroom: 12 Tools for Loud Silence

Literacy Journal: The Silent Classroom: 12 Tools for Loud Silence | Internet 2013 | Scoop.it

" ... Nonetheless, there are tools for digital communication that lend themselves to classroom use in a loud silence sort of way. That is to say, they require more than passive clicking through options, they can be monitored in some way to guarantee involvement by individual students, and multiple digital voices are heard in each conversation (or else, why use any tool?). In addition, each of these tools encourages thought and reflection before a student responds.

Here are my top 10 picks, in reverse order, with suggestions for using each sensibly in the ELA classroom."

Frankenstein by Mary Shelley || new Google Lit Trip | Internet 2013 | Scoop.it

"About the Project: Frankenstein is a great novel, but it is difficult novel in many ways. The first challenge is helping students unlearn what they know about the story. I do this by simply asking my students to identify the "Frankenstein" in Frankenstein. Most students will answer that the name refers to the monster--the tall guy with green paint and bolts on the side of his head. Actually, the name refers to Victor Frankenstein, the creator of the monster or "creature" as he is often called.

 

I then ask students to tell me what they know of the search for the Northwest Passage. Again, this is a topic that few students know about. Neither did I, in fact, when I first read the novel.

 

After a few articles, illustrations, and maps about this topic, I do not begin Frankenstein, but instead have students read an abridged version of ..."

I'm happy to announce the publication of the long awaited Frankenstein Google Lit Trip.

 

This project was developed by Mr. Gregory Greenleaf and his 2012-2013 Advanced Placement English students at Greely High School in Cumberland, Maine. 

 

I'm also pretty excited about having used Screenflow in order to create the video preview for the Frankenstein Google Lit Trip. Screenflow is capable of capturing 1080 HD video of the computer screen so detail is much easier to see. Take a look for yourselves by viewing the Preview Video here:
