There are many studies of how user expectations of institutional IT are changing: see for example the recent Educause review of IT issues and regular surveys from UCISA. The Developing Digital Literacies programme has focused rather on how people acquire the digital literacies they need for academic success, and how aspects of the institutional environment support them in doing so...

The list of concerns is excellent. There are real risks in BYOD and how do we overcome them together becomes a central question.

Deconstructing the Selfie | Visual Culture Blog

Deconstructing the Selfie | Visual Culture Blog | Media literacy | Scoop.it

In this post I want to deconstruct the ‘selfie’, not just as a type of image that is widely produced and shared across the world, but also as a philosophical and cultural concept that is beginning to define our age. Voted as the Oxford dictionary of the year in 2013, the selfie is far more than a photographic trend: its popularity represents a significant shift in the way that we conceive of others and of ourselves. Rather than regarding the selfie as photograph, it might help to regard the selfie as a medium of identification. This post seeks to uncover what the selfie – as a cultural phenomenon – communicates about our shifting identities.

JOCAM: It’s Not Just for Turtles

JOCAM: It’s Not Just for Turtles | Media literacy | Scoop.it
Just in the past few years, those who study children's relationship with media have received their own journal, titled (with surprising clarity for academe) The Journal of Children and Media (or JOCAM). I interviewed the founder and co-editor of JOCAM, Dafna Lemish, via email exchange, where we discussed the Journal's origins, purpose and focus; as well as the current direction and needs of the children and media research community.

One sentence on Wikipedia: a microcosm of information literacy

"What are the building blocks or “atoms” of Wikipedia? A Wikipedia article can have many elements, but at its core is it built of originally-worded statements of fact with a citation to areliable, published source which is independent of the thing written about. When a contribution is removed, it has usually broken at least part of this definition."

How algorithms shape our world

How algorithms shape our world | Media literacy | Scoop.it
Kevin Slavin argues that we're living in a world designed for -- and increasingly controlled by -- algorithms. In this riveting talk from TEDGlobal, he shows how these complex computer programs determine: espionage tactics, stock prices, movie scripts, and architecture. And he warns that we are writing code we can't understand, with implications we can't control.

How to Infuse Digital Literacy Throughout the Curriculum

How to Infuse Digital Literacy Throughout the Curriculum | Media literacy | Scoop.it

In our emerging digital world, a new medium of exchange has developed: online engagement, especially via social media. Effectively engaging online requires a myriad of skills that we strive to foster in school – effective written communication, brevity and civility. These components are often highlighted in Digital Citizenship programs, but in tradition-bound K12 education, we often deride social media as trite or ineffective.

Interesting post with good ideas.

LibrarianLand's curator insight, April 7, 11:53 AM

Many students still do not understand the limitations of finding information on the free web. Google is about the extent of it and if it isn't found in the first few results, it does not exist or is too hard to find (or worse still, what is found must be "it.").

 

From article: "We need to ensure that they know how to evaluate a website, a blog post, a tweet, a Facebook entry. These evaluative skills transfer cross curricularly and prepare students for the broader world of online communication."

Social Media Literacies Online Course, by Howard Rheingold

 #"As an instructor of undergraduate and graduate students at University of California, Berkeley, and Stanford University, I created a syllabus for the benefit of other college/university level instructors. I am beginning to develop a high school version. (If you are a high school teacher, and want to work on making the syllabus more suitable for high school students, contact Howard Rheingold). This variation is a pared-down version intended to accompany an online course -- the other versions are intended for longer term blended learning, combining online and face to face discourse.  Please feel free to use, modify, and share this syllabus and the others."

11 Underlying Assumptions Of Digital Literacy

 

In understanding the shift from literacy to digital literacy–or rather to understand them both in their own native contexts–it may help to take a look at the underlying assumptions of digital literacy.

This means looking at what’s changing, why it’s changing, and what that means for education.
