Teenagers and Technology (Paperback) - Routledge

Teenagers and Technology (Paperback) - Routledge | Languages, Learning & Technology | Scoop.it

"The popular media often presents a negative picture of young people and technology. From addiction to gaming, the distractions of the Internet, to the risks of social networking, the downsides of new technology in the lives of teenagers are often over-blown.

 


Teenagers and Technology presents a balanced picture of the part played by technology in the lives of young people. Drawing on extensive interviews conducted over several years, this book offers a timely and non-sensational exploration of teenagers’ experiences and opinions about the digital technologies they use, desire and dislike."

Duolingo will translate the internet while teaching languages

Duolingo will translate the internet while teaching languages | Languages, Learning & Technology | Scoop.it

A new project by one of the creators of the CAPTCHA (that impossible-to-read text that sites use to make you prove you're human) aims to crowdsource translating the internet by letting people learn while they translate. Duolingo, currently in closed beta, assesses a user's language skill, then gives them sentences to turn from either Spanish or German into English (French, Italian, and Chinese are coming later). Depending on their skill level, they'll get anything from complex work to simple phrases like "Where is the library?," with the option to see possible matches if they aren't sure of the meaning of a word. After finishing a translation, users will get help memorizing the words they had trouble with. They can also rate the quality of other translations.

Writing History in the Digital Age | Languages, Learning & Technology | Scoop.it
Has the digital revolution transformed how we write about the past — or not? Have new technologies changed our essential work-craft as scholars, and the ways in which we think, teach, author, and publish? Does the digital age have broader implications for individual writing processes, or for the historical profession at large? Explore these questions in Writing History in the Digital Age, an open peer-reviewed volume available online here and forthcoming in print and open-access digital formats from the University of Michigan Press for the Digital Humanities Series of its digitalculturebooks imprint.

How to make RSA Animate style videos with your class… : Blogush

How to make RSA Animate style videos with your class… : Blogush | Languages, Learning & Technology | Scoop.it

"2012 was coming to a close and I still noticed some important things that my kids could not do yet.  They had a lot of trouble making connections between things that they read, not only across multiple sources, but even in a single one.  They were seeing each paragraph, each sentence as individual disconnected facts.  My guess is that maybe this came from years of “read the chapter, answer the question, spit the question back” without having to put the facts together into a story and make connections between them."
