Using Social Media to Teach Visual Literacy

Using Social Media to Teach Visual Literacy | Library Finds | Scoop.it
With all the "sky is falling" cries about American students reading less, I often wonder why we don't track how much reading and writing students do daily on social media. Bring social media into your lessons is crucial to helping students develop critical thinking about the media many of them consume and create in large amounts every day.

In this article from Edudemic, Dave Guymon suggests that pairing visual or non-linguistic ideas with text-based ones can help students recall or interpret...

The "Think Before You Click" Video | Library Finds | Scoop.it

My Tech Club students have begun a digital citizenship campaign in our middle school based on the motto “Think Before You Click”. In addition to writing announcements each day for our morning news program and sharing images and video clips from Common Sense Media about creating a positive digital footprint, they produced a video of their very own to communicate our motto to the entire student body.

 

Set to be released in theaters everywhere, check out a sneak preview of the BAMS Tech Club’s rendition of “Think Before You Click”!

Using E-Portfolios in the Classroom

Using E-Portfolios in the Classroom | Library Finds | Scoop.it

With more and more schools going paperless or migrating to the "cloud" (storing files on the Internet), student work has become more easily shareable, accessible by many, and more easily organized. Many teachers have turned to digital portfolios -- or "e-portfolios" -- for their students. These digital portfolios have caused a huge shift in how teachers assign, collect and assess student classwork and projects.

Rebecca Delabrer's curator insight, October 5, 2014 9:45 PM

This article describes how student's work in school used to be more private and usually only seen by the teacher if it was done on paper. Now that schools are resorting to "paperless" classrooms, children's work is becoming much more easy to share and find and other things.

I don't think schools should go paperless. The internet is a dangerous place, especially for dumb kids our age. Not only that but the internet allows kids to cheat a lot easier than they already do now so it's promoting cheating indirectly.
