Transforming the Way We Learn: Why Digital Literacy is So Important

Transforming the Way We Learn: Why Digital Literacy is So Important | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it
“digital literacy is less about tools and more about thinking…”
When we talk about language literacy, we are discussing much more than the basic ability to recognize words on a page.

Viljenka Savli's curator insight, September 9, 2013 3:45 AM

Likewise, digital literacy is more than simply knowing how to use digital tools. It is the ability to “locate, organize, understand, evaluate, and analyze information using digital technology.” It’s also about knowing what to share, and who to share it with.

Google's Next Goal: To Stop Deforestation with Global Forest Watch

Google's Next Goal: To Stop Deforestation with Global Forest Watch | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

Deforestation has long been cited as a problem, but a lack of accessible data meant that the general public had to take someone's word for the figures. As a result, its threat always seemed more abstract and nebulous than, say, climate change or rising sea levels.

 

Until now: Google has unveiled its Global Forest Watch, an online tool that monitors deforestation around the world in near-real time.

Antonio Lopez's curator insight, February 28, 6:05 AM

One role of media should be to act like those speed monitors we see that tell us how fast we are going. Hopefully a program like Google's Global Forest Watch can help us monitor deforestation in real time.

Dronestream by Josh Begley - Real-time and historical data about every reported US drone strike

Dronestream by Josh Begley - Real-time and historical data about every reported US drone strike | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

When 28-year-old New York University grad student Josh Begley first decided he would tweet more than a decade of reported U.S. military drone strikes and their aftermaths in Pakistan, Somalia, and Yemen, he thought he could finish rapid-fire in ten minutes. Four weeks later — with his pace slowed a bit over the holidays — Begley is just nearing the end of 2010. The @dronestream project, conceived as part of NYU's Interactive Telecommunications Program, is a follow-up to Begley's Drone+, an iPhone app mapping every drone strike in real-time that was banned by Apple, and draws constant, methodical attention to a hush-hush reality. Wondering just what Begley was hoping to accomplish with what's now become an extended part-time job, we e-mailed him a few questions.
