The Global Search for Education: Singapore on Technology - Huffington Post (blog) | Learning Sciences | Scoop.it

Singapore has been faithfully implementing a master plan since 1997 for integrating technology into education. Masterplan One (1997-2002) started out by aiming to allow students to have computer usage for 30 percent of their curriculum time in fully networked schools and at a computer to pupil ratio of 1:2. Masterplan Two moved beyond the provision of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) resources to encourage teachers to use ICT profitably in teaching and learning. The current Masterplan Three (2009-2014) builds on the platform laid by the first two Masterplans to transform the learning environments of the students through ICT and equip the students with the critical competencies to succeed in a knowledge economy.

Not specific to language learners, but succinct coverage of essential issues in bite-sized chunks (digital identity, copyright and plagiarism, personal learning networks) which will be useful to teachers and learners alike.

New Frontiers: Regulating Learning in CSCL

 New Frontiers: Regulating Learning in CSCL  (Sanna Järvelä & Allyson F. Hadwin) now available online in the Special Issue: Theoretical Underpinnings of Successful Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning. Educational Psychologist, Vol. 48, No. 1, 01 Jan 2013.

Abstract: Despite intensive research in computer-supported collaborative learning (CSCL) over the last decade, there is relatively little research about how groups and individuals in groups engage, sustain, support, and productively regulate collaborative processes. This article examines the role of regulatory processes in collaborative learning and how CSCL environments can be used for shared regulation of learning. First, we establish the importance of regulation processes and introduce three types of regulation contributing to successful collaboration: self-, co-, and socially shared regulation of learning. Second, we illuminate two strands of seemingly diverse research that lay an important foundation for supporting and researching regulation in CSCL contexts establishing that (a) computer-based pedagogical tools used to successfully support regulation in individual learning contexts can be leveraged for collaborative task contexts, and (b) computer-based tools for supporting collaborative knowledge construction can be leveraged for supporting regulatory processes. Finally, we draw on emerging research in our own programs of research to demonstrate how regulation can be supported and researched in CSCL environments. The article concludes by charting a course for future CSCL research focused on supporting regulated learning in collaborative task contexts.

Nice infographic. Especially interested in student motivation and dynamic content that enables, not disables engagement.

Digital Literacies and Web Literacies: What's the Difference? | DMLcentral

Digital Literacies and Web Literacies: What's the Difference? | DMLcentral | Learning Sciences | Scoop.it

Digital literaces and web literacies - are they distinct from one another, or does one live within the other? This post looks at eight "essential elements of Digital Literaries: 1. Cultural; 2. Cognitive; 3. Constructive; 4. Communicative; 5. Confident; 6. Creative; 7. Critical and 8. Civic." After a brief discussion the concept of Web Literacies are addressed, with five elements being recognized: Exploring, Authoring, Connecting, Building and Protecting. 

The conclusion is that Web Literacies are a component of Digital Literacies. For additional information you may want to check out a video, Mozilla Web Literacies (and their relation to digital literacies):
