Tina Jameson's curator insight, December 8, 2013 8:00 PM

While being 'tech literate' is essential, we also need to explicitly provide times for prolonged concentration, without the distraction of technology.  This article links the ability to focus consistently with behaviour and the ability of people to regulate their emotions.

 

As a library professional whose main goal is to encourage reading, I  believe this article supports the necessity of valuing periods of 'tech free' sustained reading opportunities.

7 Pillars Of Digital Leadership In Education - TeachThought

7 Pillars Of Digital Leadership In Education - TeachThought | Readnlearn | Scoop.it

"As schools change leadership must as well.

 

With society becoming more and more reliant on technology it is incumbent upon leaders to harness the power of digital technologies in order to create school cultures that are transparent, relevant, meaningful, engaging, and inspiring. In order to set the stage for increasing achievement and to establish a greater sense of community pride for the work being done in our schools, we must begin to change the way we lead. To do this, leaders must understand the origins of fear and misconceptions that often surround the use of technology such as social media and mobile devices."

Web tools to support inquiry-based learning

Inquiry-based learning is an active learning process, based on identifying relevant questions to research so that the student can develop knowledge about or create solutions to issues and problems.

Web tools allow students to engage in collaborative and interactive learning. All phases of inquiry learning can be adequately addressed through a wide variety of web-based tools and applications.

Building a library for Information & Digital Literacy Skills | Jorum Team Blog | Readnlearn | Scoop.it

Jorum launches its long-awaited Information and Digital Literacy Skills Collection. This follows the successful creation earlier this year of a collection for Research Data Management (RDM) resources as a result of our involvement in the Jisc-funded DaMSSI-ABC project and demonstrates again how Jorum responds to the needs of its users. The new collection will improve discovery and usage of these resources, which we hope will encourage more sharing and re-use within the sector.

The world is becoming more interconnected, the environment is becoming less stable, and technology is continuously altering our relationship to information.

Projects In Web 3.0: Privacy Is The New Predator | Readnlearn | Scoop.it

"Student digital privacy is a critical currency, to be safeguarded by schools and pillaged by predators. Interactive, social Web 3.0 resources demand proactive ways to access tech tools and still preserve learners’ anonymity.
In the changing edtech landscape, student safety is taking on new dimensions and new gravity. When every online resource now is interactive and linked to social media, Web 3.0 often requires clever ways to give students access to the learning tools they need and still preserve their innocence."

How do we teach students the concept of privacy? How do we help them understand this concept when so much of their lives are online and open to all?

This post discusses how "privacy is the new predator", providing many resources to help you work with your students.

Have you heard about Facehawk? It is an interactive video that takes information from your Facebook account and creates a hawk that uses "photos and statuses from since your digital life began."

On one hand we tell students that they need to keep their private information private, yet websites ask them to upload their picture. To assist with this issue there is a list of websites that allow students to create avatars.

Additional resources focus on Digital Citizenship and Modern Internet Safety, Web 3.0, and New Media Literacy.

With their teacher, teacher librarian, or special visitor, this is an essential part of learning.
