"The New Media Literacies constitute the core cultural competencies and social skills that young people need in our new media landscape. We call them “literacies,” but they change the focus of literacy from one of individual expression to one of community involvement. They build on the foundation of traditional literacy, research skills, technical skills, and critical analysis skills taught in the classroom. If these New Media Literacies are learned – and they can be learned without computers in the classroom – they can form the building blocks for students’ participation in new media."
Collaboration is an essential component of teachers' professional development. Collaboration has never been as easy as it is now especially with the advance of technology and widespread internet connection.
There are a variety of ways teachers can collaborate with each others to improve their teaching experience and grow professionally. One of the workable and useful ways to do it is through the power of personal learning networks PLNs. Most of social media platforms now host a plethora of PLNs where educators and teachers get to exchange their expertise and in most cases access to these spaces is open and anybody can join and contribute in the conversation.
When it comes to the future of work and collaboration I've worked with and researched hundreds of companies. Collaboration is indeed a top priority for many business leaders but knowing what makes organizations successful can be a tricky thing.
Good considerations leaders to make when creating a collaborative culture among staff.
