YOUmedia Expansions Offer Teens Student-Centered Learning Opportunities with Digital Media | Spotlight on Digital Media and Learning

YOUmedia Expansions Offer Teens Student-Centered Learning Opportunities with Digital Media | Spotlight on Digital Media and Learning | Libraries and Learning | Scoop.it

DreamYard, the biggest arts education provider in the Bronx, marks YOUmedia’s debut into a community-center model.
“We felt at home with the philosophy right away,” said Tim Lord, co-executive director of DreamYard, which provides arts education through afterschool programs and at its own public high school, DreamYard Preparatory. DreamYard launched a YOUmedia program at its community arts center this summer, with a full roll-out planned for the fall.
One of the ideas that intrigued Lord was that of “connected learning”—another idea from Ito’s work that is becoming a catch-phrase in digital media and learning circles. Connected learning essentially means learning that is socially connected, interest driven, and directed toward concrete goals. The idea is for young people to develop a personal interest — with the help of professional adults and others interested in the same subject — and then turn that interest into actual academic and professional success or meaningful civic engagement.

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

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

I’m currently iterating some work around Web Literacies for the Mozilla Foundation (you can see the latest version of my thinking here). Perhaps the biggest consideration when dealing with so-called ‘New’ Literacies is distinguishing them from one another, so what I want to consider in this post is the relationship between Digital literacies and Web literacies. Aren’t they just synonyms?

The topic of digital literacies was the focus of my doctoral thesis, which is available to read online at neverendingthesis.com. The conclusion I came to after delving deeply into the research was that we need to always talk about literacies in their plurality and that there are broadly eight essential elements to digital literacies. My question when it comes to Web Literacies, therefore, is whether (a) they constitute a subset of Digital Literacies, (b) they are wholly distinct from Digital Literacies, or (c) there is some overlap between the two. These three positions are represented by the graphic at the top of this post.

The Commodification of Learning --mmoorejones

An excellent and thought-provoking read :

....getting better grades doesn’t mean you’ve learned more...the incentives facing students are wrong...leads to homogenous thinking and lack of creativity – undesirable traits in the world today.
