These might work well with mature learners, but there is still a role for pedagogy. Another key point is are these really separate concepts or is it more likely they overlap along with pedagogy?

News Literacy: Critical-Thinking Skills for the 21st Century

News Literacy: Critical-Thinking Skills for the 21st Century | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

"Every teacher I've worked with over the last five years recalls two kinds of digital experiences with students.The first I think of as digital native moments, when a student uses a piece of technology with almost eerie intuitiveness. The second I call digital naiveté moments, when a student trusts a source of information that is obviously unreliable. How can these coexist? How can students be so technologically savvy while also displaying their lack of basic skills for navigating the digital world?"

Seth Dixon's curator insight, April 28, 4:00 PM

This is a nice article with some practical advice but it also can that helps us conceptualize the thinking skills that our students are going to need in the future (with a classic photo that embodies 20th century news literacy).  Previously, I've written on this same topic, with some strategies to how to help students assess the validity of online information with geographic content (with a series of maps and images).  I know I've been duped before, and it's okay to admit that to your students; but we need to teach students how to be critical readers as they are swimming in an ocean of digital information of variable quality.  This is why I see content curation as an important part of modern education; it is a way to teach student the tools to assess the quality of information for themselves.  They will be gathering, organizing and synthesizing digital information for rest of their lives.

Addressing digital citizenship with the “Digital Citizenship Survival Kit”.  GUEST COLUMN | by Craig Badura

 

It’s a simple little prop I use when teaching Digital Citizenship to our pK-12 Aurora Huskies students, but I think it sends a powerful message. I love utilizing props to try to get my point across to students and thought that creating a kit full of props would be a great way to reinforce a very important topic in our schools. Let me introduce you to Mr. Badura’s “Digital Citizenship Survival Kit.”  Each of the items has a purpose and I go through each item with students when teaching. Below are the items I have in my “Digital Citizenship Survival Kit” and what each item represents. I encourage you to copy, modify my kit and create your own kit when addressing the issue of Digital Citizenship with your students!

The difference between speaking and teaching — Seize the Room

by Derek Featherstone

While I do “speak” at conferences a lot, my background is in teaching. I taught high school, did some instructing at the college and university level, and have done a lot of what most people would call “corporate training.” I’m always one to make the distinction between speaking and teaching. Why? Because they’re different. At least, I think they are.

With news sources changing rapidly and fragmenting along ideological lines, understanding how to use news and information media (“information literacy”) is an important civic skill.

A new fact sheet by CIRCLE deputy director Kei Kawashima-Ginsberg explores the extent to which information literacy is taught in high school civics classes and how its teaching varies.

Using the data from CIRCLE’s National Civics Teacher Survey, which asked teachers about the courses they taught in Fall 2012, this analysis found that overall:

9 Characteristics Of The Shift To Learning With Tablets

9 Characteristics Of The Shift To Learning With Tablets | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it
9 Characteristics Of The Shift To Learning With Tablets

 

This post is sponsored by Samsung in Education. They asked us to write anything we felt was relevant to mobile learning or learning through tablets. We focused on the shift in instructional planning to accommodate laptops in the classroom.

So many modern trends in learning are based on technology.

Game-based learning, mobile learning, the flipped classroom, blended learning, and more all depend on technology at the core of how they work. But these shifts bring with them other more important trends that challenge the cognitive demand on students, and the requisite instructional design and lesson planning on the part of teachers. Chief among them is the potential for the personalization of learning.

You can’t just add tablets to old learning models and expect success. If anything, this overly-simplified can seem to discredit the performance of learning technology, making future thinking and buy-in even more challenging. Designing instruction around tablets requires some slight shifts in how you view when, why, and how learning happens.

Student Autonomy

Student Autonomy | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it
Empowering Students In the Classroom

 

When I think of change that needs to happen in Education, my immediate thought goes toward student autonomy. To be autonomous as a student is to be able to independently manage the freedom one has in the classroom, while maintaining a harmonious relationship with the teacher.

 

For a student to be autonomous, a student must realize:

They have a voiceTheir voice mattersIt will be heardIt will make a difference

Student autonomy happens with teacher autonomy. Gert Biesta proposes democracy happens in classrooms where it is lived and modeled. It is not a distant process. The word is not autonomy but emancipation which is responsible for the Other and the world we live in.

When John McDermott and I wrote Clock Watchers and The Just Right Challenge, we wrote about empowering students and captured similar ideas to this posting. Since these ideas aren't new and seem to be shared widely, I wonder why these ideas aren't the norm in classrooms that we watch.

It is true that it's difficult to keep up with all the applications out there, so I've compiled a great list of the top 5 open source tools for libraries.

 

There was a time when working in the library I found it very frustrating (as many librarians do) that there were so few options for software that actually did what I needed. In libraries we're so used to there being this vendor=software model. Where one vendor controls a product and while there might be other similar products, they too are controlled by a vendor.

Educational institutions are constantly synchronizing their curricula with digital literacy to maintain pace with burgeoning technology. The feature can be witnessed by the presence of computers in the classroom, the utilization of academic software to deliver curriculum, and study materials made available to the accessibility of online students. In a huge number of education institutes classrooms are furnished to employ audience response systems and smartboards. These tools in such a situations are useful esp when the faculty is well versed in digital literacy.

Learning is all about asking questions and finding answers to them. An inquisitive mind is one that goes beyond the status quo and probes deep below surface meanings. To foster such kind of  thinking inside our classroom requires some hard work and a serious investment in time and efforts. We, as teachers and educators, need to prepare the right environment where inquisitive minds can nourish and grow. We need to water this environment with a culture of asking questions.
