Plagiarism & the New Digital Frontier from Jen Carey | Leading Change in Changing Times

Plagiarism & the New Digital Frontier from Jen Carey | Leading Change in Changing Times | Media and Information Literacy for Next Gen | Scoop.it

Teaching students to do real, meaningful research not only combats plagiarism, it also makes them better students and critical thinkers. These are the 21st century skills that will serve them throughout life. It will also help to limit those conversations we have all had with a child that turns in work that is not their own. By teaching students how to effectively navigate content of all types, we are promoting academic integrity as well as necessary, real world skills.

Watch Eli Neiburger’s brilliant presentation - Access, Schmaccess: Libraries in the Age of Information Ubiquity -  about information, the interwebs, Reddit Scholar, digital content, memes, ebooks, Metallica, sharing, intellectual propery, nyan cat, DRM, lovely Louis CK…and what it could all mean for libraries. 

“In the 20th century libraries brought the world to their communities. In the 21st century libraries bring the information of their communities to the world.”

ALA Task Force releases recommendations to advance digital literacy | District Dispatch

ALA Task Force releases recommendations to advance digital literacy | District Dispatch | Media and Information Literacy for Next Gen | Scoop.it

Today, the American Library Association’s (ALA) Digital Literacy Task Force (which is led by the Office for Information Technology Policy) releases its recommendations to advance and sustain library engagement in digital literacy initiatives nationwide. These recommendations build on the January 2013 Task Force report Digital Literacy, Libraries, and Public Policy and constitute a call to action on the part of the ALA, library education programs, front-line librarians, various funding bodies, and the diverse stakeholders who use and support library services.

 

Libraries of all types – school, academic, and public – play a vital role in ensuring all people have the skills and abilities to succeed in the Digital Age. These conclusions and recommendations culminate the Task Force’s work over 18 months and include comments from several public programs held at ALA conferences, as well as two online virtual public programs and task force meetings that included observers from different stakeholder groups.

 

One over-arching recommendation is that ALA should continue to have a member body that focuses on digital literacy and libraries. This group should consist of members with broad ALA representation. It would provide library leadership in digital literacy initiatives across and beyond the library community and track progress against these recommendations.

About the Open Directory Project

About the Open Directory Project | Media and Information Literacy for Next Gen | Scoop.it

The Open Directory follows in the footsteps of some of the most important editor/contributor projects of the 20th century. Just as the Oxford English Dictionary became the definitive word on words through the efforts of volunteers, the Open Directory follows in its footsteps to become the definitive catalog of the Web.

 

The Open Directory was founded in the spirit of the Open Source movement, and is the only major directory that is 100% free. There is not, nor will there ever be, a cost to submit a site to the directory, and/or to use the directory's data. The Open Directory data is made available for free to anyone who agrees to comply with our free use license.

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, March 12, 2013 6:47 PM

This directory is curated; editors select the content and place it in categories. As the site says, there are over 5 million sites, over a million categories and almost 100,000 editors.[i] There is a lot to browse. Fortunately for younger searchers, the content is, for the most part, safe (some information is suggestive).
