Teen invents cancer test using web

Teen invents cancer test using web | School Info Lit Champions | Scoop.it
US high schooler Jack Andraka invents advanced pancreatic cancer test using search engines and free online science papers.
Llandrillo Library's insight:

Originally shared on the Eldis Communities Chat Literacy forum - a great example of an information literate learner harnessing the wealth of freely available information on the Internet to develp his scientific theories and create a new safer, faster and cheaper test for cancer. Doesn't reflect too well on the teacher that confiscated an academic paper he was reading in class or the 199 professors that rejected his request to have a space in their lab to try do his work after school.

The Teacher's Guide To Digital Citizenship - Edudemic | School Info Lit Champions | Scoop.it
Digital citizenship is important to understand for today's students, staff, and teachers. Microsoft has just unveiled a free curriculum that gives great tips and ideas on teaching digital citizenship and creative content.
Llandrillo Library's insight:

How you act online is important. Not just because everything is stored, backed up, and freely available to anyone with a keyboard. But because your online reputation is actually just your reputation. There’s really no difference between online and offline anymore.

What do you feel are the key digital literacy skills that 21st century learners need?

What do you feel are the key digital literacy skills that 21st century learners need? | School Info Lit Champions | Scoop.it

Digital literacy has become one of the major issues facing educators in this early part of the 21st century. The need to develop students and teachers digital literacies has become increasingly accepted as fact and yet most teachers' and students' understanding of what exactly constitutes a digital literacy still seems to remain quite vague. Even more vague seems to be teachers' understanding of how precisely we go about developing those literacies.

At one time not so long ago, literacy was defined as the ability to read and write and the school library was a place where students came to check our books to read or to find information in reference books.

All About Explorers | About This Site

Llandrillo Library's insight:

link shared by @LibGoddess on Twitter : 

 

All About Explorers was developed by a group of teachers as a means of teaching students about the Internet. Although the Internet can be a tremendous resource for gathering information about a topic, we found that students often did not have the skills to discern useful information from worthless data.

So we set out to develop a series of lessons for elementary age students in which we would demonstrate that just because it is out there for the searching does not mean it is worthwhile.
