Media Literacy and Close Reading : A Common Medium for the Common Core | Literacy Solutions

Media Literacy and Close Reading : A Common Medium for the Common Core | Literacy Solutions | Literacy - The Digital Classroom | Scoop.it

Media literacy is a combination of new learning theory and highly engaging methods of practical, hands-on application that use 21st century technologies to aid students in culling and using evidence to supports their ideas (Schiebe, 2004).

 

Links to media literacy and student research in state curriculum standards are ever-present (Kubey and Baker, 2000 in: Schiebe, 2004). Beginning with terms such as, “evaluate importance” “reliability” and “credibility of evidence” (New York State), and “comprehend, interpret and critique texts in every medium” (California), it continues into the Common Core Standards with “citing evidence” “textual evidence” “sufficiency of evidence” and “reasons and evidence”.  Media literacy as it works into student research is both an implied term, and an overt curriculum mandate.

 

Through Project Look Sharp (in: Schiebe, 2004), a “curriculum-driven” approach was used to examine and teach media literacy to K-12 teachers in order for them to turnkey it to their students. By looking at the messages and languages used in multimedia, traditional literacy was seen as the basic language through the visual cues, auditory messages and concise text across all media types. These were strong indicators that one basic language could be used to help students develop a core competency across all media types to support their conceptual understanding and overall reading of text.

 

Here are some media literacy examples:

Digital Media Literacy Program to Help Students Acquire Effective Multimedia Technical Skills | The Sophian

During J-Term this year, ETS will be offering a new course in digital media literacy. The Digital Media Literacy (DML) program is a non-credit, accelerated two-week course that gives training in new media technologies.

 

At the end of the two weeks, the 12 students who participate in the program will receive a certificate. “The skill sets will serve [students] well in all academic endeavors, internships and careers,” said Multimedia Courseware Developer Kate Lee.

 

Students who take part in the DML program will have the opportunity to form a strong foundation in media skills. The course will be separated into five sections: digital audio, digital photography, digital imaging, digital video and web development. The learning objectives of the program are to actively engage with different forms of media, use contemporary media ethically and creatively, communicate effectively while creating meaningful media content and gain media literacy by exploring diverse forms of communication.

 

“I believe that students who participate in this program will have a solid foundation in a broad range of media technologies that they can then apply immediately in their coursework, in their internships and in their careers,” said Lee.

 

The course was formed as part of Smith College’s 2011 IT Strategic Plan. One of the main principles of the 2011 Strategic Plan is to “create opportunities for students to develop a technology fluency and aptitude that will serve them throughout their lives.”

 

Smith students also expressed their desire to learn media technologies in an online digital media literacy survey conducted in spring 2012.

7 Data Visualization Tools You Can Use In The Classroom

7 Data Visualization Tools You Can Use In The Classroom | Literacy - The Digital Classroom | Scoop.it

No matter what happens, there will always be a demand for data visualization tools. Data on its own can be pretty boring and brightening it up with images and other visual tools, it can make normally inaccessible information much easier to digest. (Editor’s Note: It’s also great for information reading literacy, and the new Common Core demand for multimedia “texts.”)


There are a number of fantastic tools out there that will present your data in an accessible manner. All of the tools listed below are free and chances are you’ve used one or two of the tools mentioned before.

Hi Ken, some are free and some are regrettably not free (books, for example); nevertheless, I find it a great source of information regarding media literacy for education.
