Our computer is the “virtual car” who is driving on the “Data Highway” (Internet), it needs maintenance and especially care about IT-Security and safety..."

Critical Digital Literacy Explained for Teachers

Critical Digital Literacy Explained for Teachers | learning by using iPads | Scoop.it

Critical digital literacy is one of the essential required competencies for the 21st century educator. In an era of unprecedented personal publishing, infobesity (information obesity) becomes a real issue. Teachers need to be able to critically  assess and evaluate the materials and knowledge they come across. This could be done through adopting a critical thinking lens to filter things that could otherwise unconsciously affect one's stance and interpretation of  a given meaning.

Juliet Hinrichsen and Antony Coombs from University of Greenwich developed this excellent framework to help you understand the concept of critical digital literacy. This framework is made up of 5 dimensions:

ALFABETIZACIÓN DIGITAL CRÍTICA aquí encontramos cinco dimensiones...Critical Digital Literacy Explained for Teachers | @scoopit via @knolinfos http://sco.lt/...

Dr. Dea Conrad-Curry's curator insight, December 12, 12:14 PM

About five years ago, I worked with a large suburban school on developing awareness and teaching/learning skill sets in the area of critical literacy. The nuances of digital and even print text within structure and conventions suggests meaning that extends far beyond the alphabetic word. This framework would have been a helpful tool to ground discussion and build understanding.

Moving beyond the textbook

Moving beyond the textbook | learning by using iPads | Scoop.it

liked theThere are a lot of misconceptions around the transition from textbooks into the world of digital content delivery. The biggest mistake schools can make is simply changing out one medium of delivery for another without ever assessing or changing the content or method of delivery. Simply, let's take a 19th-century tool and place it on a 21st-century device. This is not the way to leverage the power of an iPad or, for that matter, any device you integrate in your classroom.


Via Edumorfosis
Viljenka Savli (http://www2.arnes.si/~sopvsavl/)'s insight:

I would point out also this important issue in the article:

While some may argue that this creates more work for educators, it should actually become a practice that all life-long learners or lead learners engage in regularly. At the core, educators are hired as content experts who will stay abreast of the changing landscape in their area of expertise.

Textbooks are used for centuries to help students to go through useful content on a specific discipline. While this curation is still important, we can do much more in this numeric era. This article asks the question how to improve our curation process for the numeric age.

Microsoft's next surprise is free Office for iPad, iPhone, and Android - The Verge

Microsoft's next surprise is free Office for iPad, iPhone, and Android - The Verge | learning by using iPads | Scoop.it

 - THE VergeMicrosoft's Office suite for iPad, iPhone, and Android is now free. In a surprise move, the software giant is shaking up its mobile Office strategy to keep consumers hooked to Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents. Starting today, you'll no longer need an Office 365 subscription to edit documents or store them in the cloud. The move comes just days after Microsoft announced a strategic partnership with Dropbox to integrate the cloud storage service into Office across desktop, mobile, and the web. You can now download Office for iPad and store all your documents on Dropbox without paying Microsoft anything at all. Microsoft is also releasing a brand new iPhone app today, alongside a preview of Office for Android tablets, all with Dropbox integration.

It's true! And it works! Have tried it out - now there's no excuse not to work... To be honest, I do find Apple Pages to be a little more user-friendly on my iPad, and it also allows one to save one's documents as Word documents which is what I've being doing. So it's understandable why Microsoft has gone this route.
