Digital Passport™ : a game to become #digitalliterate #mediawijsheid

Deborah Fillman's curator insight, November 6, 2013 5:06 PM

Love the idea of teaching kids digital "self-defense," rather than focusing on erecting barriers they might see as challenges to overcome, or "problems" to solve. They not only need to guard against bullies and predators, but also that  that they have a "digital footprint" that will follow them throughout their lives. 

 

Tina Jameson's curator insight, November 7, 2013 5:07 PM

Prepare students for their online future: this freely available online tool allows students to 'play' and work their way through different levels, building up vital understanding of 'digital footprints' and cyber safety in the process.  Seems to be aimed at a junior primary to middle school level.

 

This article explains how one Librarian has used the tool successfully, and provides links to the 'Digital Passport' program.

'School libraries play a huge part in pupils' education'

'School libraries play a huge part in pupils' education' | School Libraries and more | Scoop.it

In a society where one in three homes has no books owned by the children in them, it is essential that youngsters can find them elsewhere.

 

Recent research emphasises this importance. A study by the Institute of Education (2013) found reading for pleasure ‘to be more important for children's cognitive development between ages 10 and 16 than their parents' level of education.’

Teaching Students Skills to become Better Online Readers

Teaching Students Skills to become Better Online Readers | School Libraries and more | Scoop.it

Soon after Maryanne Wolf published “Proust and the Squid,” a history of the science and the development of the reading brain from antiquity to the twenty-first century, she began to receive letters from readers. Hundreds of them. While the backgrounds of the writers varied, a theme began to emerge: the more reading moved online, the less students seemed to understand."

Helen Teague's curator insight, August 3, 2014 9:36 AM
Do students retain more information when they read from books rather than from digital devices? Does reading online present challenges due to distractions? Do students need to be taught skills to become better online readers?
Ruby Day's curator insight, August 3, 2014 5:21 PM

Studies show we are not reading as effectively online as we are with hard copies. This highlights the need for tools to help us read deeper online - e.g annotation type tools. This links to an interesting stuy of year 5 students using collaborative annotation software demonstrating higher performance than the control group's' paper based annotation.

Interesting research results cited here.  "The report went on to investigate commonalities such as the link between highly trained library staff and student success, digital adoption in the schools and book checkouts, and more. Interestingly, mobile device use and after-school access to the libraries’ digital materials played a key role in this year’s findings."

The Indispensable Library and Librarian | Tech Tidbits

Don't ever doubt it—librarians are in a service industry. By focusing on our unique patron needs and demographics, libraries will continue to be relevant in their schools and communities.

 

Our best librarians are constantly adapting and learning. The future is rich and full of possibility for librarians who are willing to continually assess and respond to their schools’ needs.

Printed or electronic, libraries will always provide an invaluable resource for their communities. Library staff will adapt to new technologies and new demands and will always be needed to guide patrons through a brave new world.

Curation as Digital Literacy Practice

Curation as Digital Literacy Practice | School Libraries and more | Scoop.it

Ibrar Bhatt writes: "Digital curation therefore is not just about finding relevant material, although that is a significant part of it, but is also about creating a specific and unique experience by utilising the resulting materials which then become contextualised within a new space. A curator, therefore, whether she is a journalist-by-proxy such as Popova or a student completing an assignment in a classroom, not only collects and interprets, but also creates a new experience with it. In this respect, curation is a process of problem solving, re-assembling,re-creating, and stewardship of other people’s writing."
