Being a Digital Native Isn’t Enough

Being a Digital Native Isn’t Enough | MyEdu&PLN | Scoop.it

It is our role as teachers to help students develop the skills to problem solve independently and collaboratively use 21st-century skills while not relying on technology to do all of the thinking for them. Just because these students are digital natives, does not mean that they do not need guidance to navigate the digital world–both in terms of learning how to discern important and relevant information from a large swath of data, and also to be able to inquire and solve problems that take time, thought, and energy.

One way to grow a networked teacher, is to grow a networked learner, by Joyce Seitzinger

One way to grow a networked teacher, is to grow a networked learner, by Joyce Seitzinger | MyEdu&PLN | Scoop.it

"In my new role as Lecturer in Blended Learning, a part of my role is staff development. Staff development has always been a part of my roles, both in how do you do staff development in a networked world?"

Comment: rich essay on how networked learning prepares people for networked working and networked professional development. It not only advocates the use of social media for this, but also lays out a course-like structure that allows in this case teachers to acquaint themselves with these media. That said, what I miss is what I miss in all these kinds of accounts that promote social media for learning, my own included: how do people learn with them in actual fact and how effectively do they learn? There is the hunch that social media offer unprecedented opportunities for learning. But there still is little evidence to substantiate it. (Peter sloep)
