Digital Literacy in the Primary Classroom

Digital Literacy in the Primary Classroom | Literacy and iPads | Scoop.it

Kevin McLaughlin writes a great post sharing: What is Digital Literacy

 

Futurelab, an organisation ‘committed to developing creative and innovative approaches to education, teaching and learning’, gives the following definition in its publication Digital Literacy across the curriculum:

 

To be digitally literate is to have access to a broad range of practices and cultural resources that you are able to apply to digital tools. It is the ability to make and share meaning in different modes and formats; to create, collaborate and communicate effectively and to understand how and when digital technologies can best be used to support these processes.

Learning and Teaching with iPads: Developing iPad learning workflows for best learning outcomes

Learning and Teaching with iPads: Developing iPad learning workflows for best learning outcomes | Literacy and iPads | Scoop.it

Rethinking the approach to learning with an iPad was one of the key points that arose from our recent iPad study tour in Queensland.
Many of the schools talked about the development of 'Learning Workflows' where work is created in one app, then built on in another App and so on.
Using the iPad where many Apps are generally single function, requires a different approach to create useful learning outcomes that moves the integration of the iPad in learning from the Subsitution model to the Redefinition model.

A very useful explanation with some practical examples of how to achieve a learning workflow in your classroom can be found in this article.

“Let the iPad choose. It’s the fair way.” – Random teams & groupings in PE

“Let the iPad choose.  It’s the fair way.” – Random teams & groupings in PE | Literacy and iPads | Scoop.it

"Attendance, Part 3 One of the best things a student has ever said about my iPad during class was: “Let the iPad choose. It's the fair way.” With the Attendance app http://itunes.apple.com/ca/app/attendance/id301753475?mt=8 you can take, record, report and track attendance. You can communicate with an entire class or any students that were missing with the tap of a finger. You can document behaviours or record any notes on a particular student at a particular time. And you can do it all in one place. But there is still more functionality in the attendance app, and it's my favorite part. "
