I thiCertainly, as we turn to online reading, the physiology of the reading process itself shifts; we don’t read the same way online as we do on paper. Anne Mangen, a professor at the National Centre for Reading Education and Research at the University of Stavanger, in Norway, points out that reading is always an interaction between a person and a technology, be it a computer or an e-reader or even a bound book.

Common Craft has recently rolled out a new video in which leefever explained what digital literacy is all about. I love Leefevr video explanations and I think students will find them much easier to follow and comprehend.

Literacy is the first human invention that has transformed the human life forever. It is thanks to literacy that human thinking developed to include more abstract and syllogistic concepts which constituted the foundational pillars of science. Literacy also enabled humans to build a civilization through the encoding and sharing of collective wisdom.

Information Literacy vs. the Demagogue | The Journal of Creative Library Practice

Information Literacy vs. the Demagogue | The Journal of Creative Library Practice | literacy: digital, information, visual, trans., etc. | Scoop.it

Michael Corleone advises us to “keep your friends close but your enemies closer” (Godfather, Part II). As librarians and educators work to further develop the information literacy movement, we need to consider the perspective of those who work against our goal of developing citizens who can inform themselves in an objective manner. An example of this class of rivals that poses a particularly poignant threat to the health of democratic institutions is the demagogue, a public figure who employs disinformation to inflame people’s fear and anger, thereby securing for the demagogue a greater percentage of the votes, a larger chunk of the viewership.  I believe that a careful examination of the motivations and techniques of past demagogues can put information literacy educators in a better position to help their students critically evaluate inflammatory political communications.

Crucially, the outcome of being digitally fluent relates to issues of responsibility, equity and access. We all have the right to fully participate in a digitally-enabled education system and in an increasingly digitised society. If we work with fluency in the way we use technologies, we are able to keep ourselves safe online and take full advantage of life chance opportunities such as being able to apply for work, manage our finances, or be part of our local community

Teaching students to create their own learning is every bit as important as teaching subject knowledge, arguably, more so.
Marta Botella's curator insight, November 9, 2015 6:52 AM

En pleno Siglo XXI las competencias digitales se han convertido en un requisito indispensable para la sociedad, tanto en el trabajo como en el día a día de las personas. Por ello se pide el reconocimiento de las competencias digitales como habilidades básicas esenciales.

Los maestros deben fomentar las competencias digitales en sus alumnos con el fin de formar ciudadanos capaces de resolver toda clase de problemas con eficacia y creatividad.

Boy Oh Boy, Christmas Has Come Early For Teachers With The New StoryCorps Mobile App! - @LarryFerlazzo | literacy: digital, information, visual, trans., etc. | Scoop.it

Anyone who’s every listened to NPR is probably familiar with StoryCorps, and I’ve published several posts sharing their resources.

 

They just unveiled a new free mobile app at the TED Conference that allows anyone to record an interview with anyone and upload it their new site, StoryCorps.me. They have both iPhone and Android versions, and they’re great!


The app provides multiple suggestions for questions, depending on who you are interviewing (you can also add your own). It’s a perfect tool for having students interview their parents, grandparents or other older family members (which also makes it easy to ensure students have parental consent — by the way, their policy states users must be over 13). It’s super-simple to use. Of course, classmates could also interview others, as long as teachers had parental permission."

Understanding copyright is an important skill, but it’s a confusing topic. Why do we have copyright laws? What are common copyright violations?

5 Reasons You Should Be Teaching Digital Citizenship

 

 

Students buzzed about the latest uproar on Instagram. Anonymous sources had posted a “questionable”–and NSFW–list for multiple public schools in our city on Instagram, leading to distraught girls, viral Twitter reactions, and an investigation [http://insiderlouisville.com/news/2014/01/16/jcps-officials-investigating-posting-inappropriate-photos-students-instagram/ ].

This type of cyberbullying and reckless use of digital communication is rampant among teens, but this recent episode was only unusually due to its elevated publicity.
