The 8 Key Elements Of Digital Literacy - Edudemic

The 8 Key Elements Of Digital Literacy - Edudemic | Empowered eLearning communities | Scoop.it
Many teachers have added ‘digital literacy’ as number four on the list of literacies their students should have (or be working towards, in most cases).

Being able to hear what is being said from those we serve is extremely important to how we develop our schools, and the conversation is extremely valuable. Yet, many schools and organizations use social media in the old fashion: sharing information but not having a conversation. In reality, just because you have ears doesn’t mean you are listening.

By Marcus Chan

 

"Net Power & Light, based in San Francisco, is making its debut with technology it calls Spinthat turns online education into a group activity, even if the participants are on opposite sides of the globe.

 

"The company has released three free iPad apps that allow users to create virtual gatherings where they can all watch educational content together from sources such as Harvard, Stanford University, TED and the National Geographic Channel. Users can also fast-forward to the best parts, pause the program so the group can debate a particular point via videoconferencing, or jump to a different clip."
