Opinion: Forget “digital natives.” Here’s how kids are really using the Internet

Opinion: Forget “digital natives.” Here’s how kids are really using the Internet | library life | Scoop.it
By challenging the assumption that every child growing up today is a one-size-fits all digital native, we can make sure each of them can find their own way to relate to technology — whether using it to accomplish basic tasks or to create new technologies and worlds. Being aware of our kids’ differences now is what could help keep them from drifting apart.

Chris Carter's comment, July 5, 9:37 PM
A much more nuanced view, and one that I appreciate. I have long called so-called digital natives "digital naives" because the majority of kids only know enough about tech to use it to accomplish what they wish to accomplish. Tech does not really come any easier for them. Tech is simply more common to them.

The Classroom or Library as a Maker Space Jackie Gerstein @jackiegerstein | library life | Scoop.it
Makerspaces, Maker Education, STEM, and STEAM are gaining lots of traction in Kindergarten though college level education. Articles, resources on social media, and conference presentations on these topics are proliferating at a rate that most educators are now familiar with maker education.

Makerspaces like vocational shops and science labs are great additions to schools. They often contain the tools, machinery, and technologies associated with making – 3D printers, laser cutters, vinyl cutters, high tech robotics, vocational tech machinery. These are great for educational institutions and learners that can afford them.

Carlos Fosca's curator insight, July 3, 9:01 AM

"Classroom educators and librarians may wonder how they might create spaces for playing, tinkering, making, collaborating, discussing, researching, and reflecting. First and foremost, they need to develop an innovator’s mindset, one outside of the box of what a classroom should look, sound, and be like. Second, practitioners need to become intentional in insuring that a full spectrum of making skills, attitudes, and knowledge is offered to learners." (By Jackie Gerstein)

Personal Computing Is Dead, Long Live Collaborative Computing | library life | Scoop.it

"Those of us who are actively developing for the HoloLens, and for the other augmented and mixed reality devices and platforms that currently exist, are constantly looking for the next bit of news or press conference about the space. Our one hope is to find any information about the road ahead, to know that the hours we spend slaving away above our keyboards, with the weight of a head-mounted display on our neck, will lead to something as amazing as we picture it. All the analysis tends to lead down roads that say 5 to 10 years."

Bryce Cooper's curator insight, May 30, 12:29 AM
I think that the hololens is a fantastic resource, and I hope that it gains more traction sooner rather than later. The capabilities that mixed reality could present to my own teaching in the area of history are quite profound. Students could physically experience historical events, see through the eyes of someone who was there standing on the ground when ANZAC soldiers landed at Gallipoli, or when the Treaty of Versailles was signed. Students could interact with the augmented reality and use it to create great collaborative projects. They could use it to predict outcomes of battles, from being able to physically see the circustances such as terrain and armed strength.

This resource supports the SAMR framework well, in regards to the higher order thinking aspects of Redefinition. Students can immerse themselves in a situation in VR that replaces the physical pictures, text and videos entirely, and creates a new dimension to engagement with a topic. Whilke a documentary full of firsthand footage can be insightful for a relatively recent era, VR recreations of ancient historical aspects could be invaluable for student engagement and learning. 

VR has the capability to essentially redefine the way in which students learn and engage with history, and can present all new opportunities for teachers to plan and implement interesting and engaging assessment and activities.

Technology can empower the students of today to create the world of tomorrow. The students we equip with digital skills today will work in careers we haven’t even thought of yet, and build new technology that we can’t even begin to imagine. Educators, parents, and technology companies have a responsibility to provide them with the best education and tools possible to make this future a reality. Technology is the key to helping our students succeed, think creatively, and ultimately create a better world.

Lack of faculty time and training limits digital learning more than resistance does, study finds | Inside Higher Ed | library life | Scoop.it
A new survey of faculty members and administrators by Tyton Partners asserts that the use of digital instructional technologies, which it endorses, is facing "headwinds" in adoption by colleges and universities. The study identifies faculty take-up of digital courseware and other tools as among the leading impediments to their spread -- but cites faculty members' lack of time and the training they receive from their institutions as far bigger cause than their outright opposition.
