How Do We Teach Digital Literacy to Digital Natives? - Edudemic | iPad in my life | Scoop.it

Young people today are instant messengers, gamers, photo sharers and supreme multitaskers. But while they use the technology tools available to them 24/7, they are struggling to sort fact from fiction, think critically, decipher cultural inferences, detect commercial intent and analyze social implications.

Some tips about using the news with teenagers.

Amy Melendez's curator insight, June 3, 2014 10:56 PM

From the post: "It is our job as educators and content producers to encourage kids to be capable, global citizens in a digital age. Integrating a news story into your classroom everyday not only sparks important conversations, but encourages students to create and analyze their own media responses, provides a basis for asking questions and is a seamless, natural way to incorporate CCSS nonfiction content into your daily lesson plan."

SchoolNet SA - IT's a Great Idea: 12 more places to find reading material for Foundation Phase learners

SchoolNet SA - IT's a Great Idea: 12 more places to find reading material for Foundation Phase learners | iPad in my life | Scoop.it

The Internet is a goldmine for reading materials. Earlier this week I wrote a post highlighting 12 websites that provide great reading material for young learners. (http://schoolnetsa.blogspot.com/2012/01/bring-technology-into-your-foundation.html). These sites could be very useful to link to with the new CAPS curriculum being implemented in South Africa for Grades 1 – 3 this year since there is a big emphasis on reading.

There are more versions of "self" than ever before, which gives kids who may already be struggling to figure out who they are even more to juggle. In an interview with NPR, media theorist and author Douglas Rushkoff explained the feeling in a term he coined: “digiphrenia.”
