This is an important topic - and not just to librarians. Many schools will need to re-evaluate their classes to include more embedded technology & ethics skills. 

Maria João Loureiro's curator insight, February 1, 12:37 PM

Em síntese, as competências a desenvolver (qualquer que seja o nível de ensino em diferentes patamares, diria eu), relacionam-se com a literacia da informação (com e sem recurso as tecnologias mais recentes), ou seja, pesquisa, seleção e tratamento de informação (para a transformar em conhecimento - diferente de copy/paste) e comunicação (oral e escrita) de ideias, de si próprio e do que faz (de forma rigorosa e atraente), tendo em conta as normas de privacidade e ética (que em contextos online são bastas vezes descuidadas) . Parece-me ficar a faltar outras tantas, como a resolução de problemas, a colaboração, o aprender a aprender...

I could help teach students these skills in the context of their other coursework.

Why content curation is a new form of communication

While the history of communication until the end of the previous century has only been focusing on enlarging the distribution to a few published or broadcasted content creators, we now live in information overload where content curators can be the new super heroes.

Anita Vance's insight:

Here's an article underscoring the relevance of school librarians as teaching partners - these are the skills we practice with students in every research project that shares time in the library.  Practicing each skill with a relevant example for the current project helps make the connections for extending learning and applying it to the next project.

Evaluating information is a critical life skill. Without sufficient practice, our students will not internalize this skill, and will not remember it from lesson to lesson. Talk to you librarian today about integrating the process of evaluating information into your research projects and lesson plans today!

50 Activities To Promote Digital Media Literacy In Students

 

Literacy is changing–not at its core necessarily, but certainly at its edges as it expands to include new kinds of “reading.”

Digital media is quickly replacing traditional media forms as those most accessible to most 21st century learners. The impact of this change is extraordinarily broad, but for now we’ll narrow it down to changes in how learners respond to the media they consume.

The most fundamental pattern of formal academia is to read something and then write about it. Sometimes this writing comes in the form of responding to questions, while other time it’s in the form of an essay. And sometimes the reading is watching, playing with, or otherwise interacting with a digital media. So I thought it might make sense to compile a list of “things” learners can do as the result of “consuming” a digital media.

Anita Vance's insight:

This is an excellent mix of activities with various media - So good to see it itemized and recommended for inclusion across the curriculum.  Ideas include great ideas for cooperative /team ventures.
