Reading challenge for 2014? Sure.  If anyone manages to get 5 or more squares with one book, I figure that's worth a bingo too:-)

I love the idea of parents being more involved in their child's digital literacy development - no different than making sure you invest time in their reading, mathematical, emotional and physical wellbeing!

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 18, 2013 7:04 PM

Makes sense. The more we include parents in the education of their children the more social capital the children build. The question is not whether parents being involved is good. We need to figure out what that looks like in the digital world.

We have a romantic attachment to skills from the past which are no longer relevant on a curriculum for today's children

Via Ana Cristina Pratas
Sue Osborne's insight:

At the centre of this article there is truth, which is that our children need "new" skills and new ways of developing and using the "old" ones. However, I think there is room for them all, if the curriculum is formulated the right way. Inquiry-based learning, letting the kids ask a question and then search for the answer using a number of resources, is definitely the way to go. Personally I think there will ALWAYS be a place for being able to do maths the old fashioned way, so you understand how it works,  but there is also a time to let the technology take you further, to increase that understanding. Room for both.

Linda Alexander summarised my thoughts beautifully!

'While I agree with the basis of this article, we do have a romantic attachment to the past, especially parents who want their children to experience schools as they DID, I don't completely agree with this article. There are reasons for understanding the "way things work" and there are reasons for knowing one's history--as Winston Churchill said, "Those who don't know their history are doomed to repeat it." That said, this article really speaks to the way we go about learning and, yes, that has really changed.'

This post was short but to the point.  Technology should be one of the subjects kids learn in school, it should be used to help kids develop ideas.  Teachers should use technology to keep lessons interesting so kids don't fall asleep or become uninteresting.
