Media Literacy
The world around us is reshaped by emerging social settings and new behavioral patterns. Our daily language evolves in order for us to be able to understand and deliberate new social and cultural practices. Children need to be educated for entering and co-shaping this world.

Paulo Moekotte's insight:

The web literacy standards can be considered a part of general information literacy and digital literacy, focussing espescially on web based information. 

As Belshaw puts it himself:

"A framework for Web Literacy is always going to be what I’d term a ‘convenient hypocrisy’. There’s so many different things we could include – and so many ways of learning it – that a truly comprehensive framework would be impossible to represent. We’re limited to two, or at best three, dimensions when representing a learning standard for Web Literacy!"

 

This argument is in line with his approach of digital literacy in his thesis "What is ‘digital literacy’?": 

"Whilst a definition of digital literacies should be produced by the above process it should (as befits the Pragmatic methodology of this thesis) be provisional and revisable. In other words, those looking to develop digital literacies should understand that the ground is currently shifting under their feet."

Why Scoopit Is Becoming An Indispensable Learning Tool
Paulo Moekotte's insight:

Content curation not only fits information searching skills like a glove. It also aids in developing critical thinking skills that come with evaluating and reflecting on information,

But most important: curation itself can be seen as an indispensable skill in the contemporary information society. So content curation might be added to literacies that are demanded from every individual these days.

45% of AP & NWP teachers say they or their students use e-readers & 43% use tablets in the classroom/for assignments

45% of AP & NWP teachers say they or their students use e-readers & 43% use tablets in the classroom/for assignments | Media Literacy | Scoop.it
Paulo Moekotte's insight:

"The use of e-readers and cell phones as a learning tool varies by the subject matter being taught."


This should not be surprising as certain subject matters are more suited for this kind of approach and these kinds of devices.


"Topping the list of activities students engage in via the internet and digital tools is “doing research or searching for information online” which 95% of teachers say their students do and which was the focus of the first report in this series"


Knowing that the information searching skills of most youth are less developed than expected, raises questions about the quality and usefulness of these learner activities.


Are students capable, literate or competent enough to find, evaluate and use information that is provided by the internet?


Teachers should and do care about this problem. But the report goes on to find that that:

"... the top two obstacles to incorporating digital technologies in the classroom are time constraints and pressure to teach to assessments."

 

A further interesting finding is the fact that "teachers of the lowest income students are most likely to say that pressure to teach to assessments, a lack of resources among students, and a lack of technical support are “major challenges” to incorporating more digital tools into their teaching."


Once more it seems that students from lower income background are set back when it comes to helping them use modern technology in order to become more media or digital literate and equipped for future tasks.


So still almost 40% of the interviewed teachers strongly agree that "today's digital technologies are leading to greater disparities between affluent and disadvantaged schools and school districts."

Is Technology-Enhanced Learning Effective? Recent Research and Best Practices

Paulo Moekotte's insight:

Nice summary based on

Means, B., Toyama, Y., Murphy, R., Bakia, M., Jones, K. (2010). Evaluation of evidence-based practices in online learning: A meta-analysis and review of online learning. Center for Technology in Learning, U.S. Department of Education

 

Putting it even more concise regarding TEL:

- blending works;

- adapting instruction works;

- self-directed online learning is not the best.

 

Although the last point might seem to work in favour of the research by Kirschner, Sweller and Clark, I believe that more research might be usefull with regard to so called concepts of 'dysfunctional learner autonomy' and 'destructive friction'. The first is about learner states (ranging from dependence and indepedence and concering mainly ability and willingness); the latter is about learner perceptions in relation to learning strategies and mainly concerns uncertainty or boredom.

Connected Learning Webinar on needed core changes in education- Mimi Ito & Katie Salen

Paulo Moekotte's insight:

Mimi Ito over 'connected learning environments'; het verbinden van omgevingen waarin geleerd wordt.

 

In deze webinar wordt o.a. gewezen op het recent verschenen rapport van DML waarin de onderzoeksagenda ('an educational reform agenda') wordt besproken. De agenda is een reactie op veranderingen in de wereld om ons heen ('trends reshaping the landscape of learning').  Deze trends zijn niet per definitie allemaal positief. De onderzoekers richten zich vooral op de volgende trends in termen van problemen:

- de verbinding tusssen onderwijs en kansen/mogelijkheden (broken pathways from education to opportunity);

- de toenemende kloof tussen hoger en lager opgeleiden (growing learning divide/achievement gap);

- de toenemende fragmentatie en commercialisering van het medialandschap (commercialized and fragmented media ecology).

 

De agenda richt zich vooral op de mogelijkheden om interesse- dan wel aandachtsgebeiden (spheres) die elkaar positief kunnen versterken te integreren. Bij die aandachtsgebieden gaat het in het bijzonder om jeugdcultuur, interesses en onderwijs ('peer culture, interests, and academic content').

 

De kansen dan wel mogelijkheden die de onderzoekers op het netvlies hebben, zijn:

 

- betrokkenheid en zelfexpressie (engagement and self-expression);

- de toegang tot kennis en leerervaringen (accessibility to knowledge and learning experiences);

- vormen van sociale ondersteuning/sociaal kapitaal (social supports for interests);

- diversiteit en menselijke vermogens (diversity and building capacity).

5 Social Networks Students Can Use To Find A Job | Edudemic

5 Social Networks Students Can Use To Find A Job | Edudemic | Media Literacy | Scoop.it

The days when the Career Services of schools and universities were limited to CV Clinics and interview tips are long gone. With social media, university career advisors have all the necessary tools to give extra support to current students and alumni who are looking for placements in the competitive job market. This is heightened when you consider the following:

 

68% of recruiters have hired someone based on what they see online.90% of hiring managers and recruiters review candidates’ online information first.

 

Several universities have already implemented successful Career Services on social media. With the help of the careers team at the London School of Business & Finance (LSBF) and Finance Business Training (FBT), we list below the reasons why you should consider integrating 5 social media channels into your Career Services.

Collaboration is not the same as Social

Collaboration is not the same as Social | Media Literacy | Scoop.it

I’ve been asked a few times now, isn’t ‘social business’ just ‘collaborative working’ re-badged in a way that needs a new set of technologies to be deployed. But actually no, they are two fundamentally different concepts.


Via Ruud Zandbergen
Paulo Moekotte's insight:

Waarin verschillen 'collaborative teams' en 'social networks' volgens Sharon Richardson.

 

Het gaat vooral om het nastreven van een gezamenlijk doel en de wijze waarop technologie die onderneming optimaal ondersteunt. 

 

Of zoals Richardson het verwoord:

 

collaborative teams: "Technology helps with communications. Communicating with each other and with the content. (...) it is all about ensuring the outcome is achieved in a fashion better than would occur without the technology."

 

social networks: "Technology can help by discovering new connections outside your political group – the strength in ‘weak ties’. And also in organising the conversations."
