Digital Literacy Simply Explained | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Digital Literacy Simply Explained | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | literacy: digital, information, visual, trans., etc. | Scoop.it

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.

Using Wikipedia in information literacy instruction

As an information literacy instructor at Auburn University, it has been a perpetual struggle to teach students how to successfully search for library resources when they come to their one-time library sessions with only a broad paper topic and no idea how to narrow it down. A student recently told me regarding an English composition due in a few days, “The topic is so broad, I can’t pick an argument. I don’t even know where to start.” I began encouraging students to use a resource that they feel comfortable with as a starting point—Wikipedia.

It is better to be positive about something that students use rather than negative. As long as they know the pitfalls it is a good place to start. Just not the place to stay! 

Karen Draper's curator insight, January 29, 10:49 AM

This is what I teach my students-- get ideas from Wikipedia, use it as a jumping point. Make sure all info is backed up by primary & secondary sources.

Monica Crane-Gatto's curator insight, January 31, 11:39 PM

Using Wikipedia as a starting point can assist in narrowing a search that will lead into vetted databases research.

more data for our discussions - students are more comfortable with technology, but less able to locate good information or decipher data they have found.

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.

Digital literacy helps you communicate and keep pace with modern global developments. In the social media and network integration literacy not only gives people a platform to come into contact, share desired knowledge but also help them do business promotion and transactions. The idea is very frequently being adopted by the young generation by connecting via social media, e.g. LinkedIn, Facebook, etc.
