Being a Digital Native Isn’t Enough | Guest Blog, Scientific American Blog Network

Being a Digital Native Isn’t Enough | Guest Blog, Scientific American Blog Network | School libraries for information literacy and learning! | Scoop.it

"Since children these days are classified as being native to all things digital, one would think they should be able to master the operation of anything with an “on” button. This mistakenly groups all technology, including video games and online search engines, in the same category. Just because a child jumps at the opportunity to program a TV to record his or her favorite shows does not mean that he or she will approach a classroom learning tool with the same zeal. In our experience, if students are not able to find answers to an Internet search in the first few results pages, they say “I can’t find it,” instead of adjusting their search, or reexamining the results in depth."

Words Matter: Are you talking about technology, or are you talking about learning?

Words Matter: Are you talking about technology, or are you talking about learning? | School libraries for information literacy and learning! | Scoop.it
This blog post was written by Krista Moroder, Professional Development Manager at Digital Promise and ISTE Young Educator Network Leader. ISTE is leading the theme Leadership for Change during Connected Educator Month. I still remember the first time I held a voluntary workshop on Google Docs for a staff of 100 teachers. I called it “10 Ways to Use Google Docs in Your Classroom”. Five people showed up. A week later, I was eating lunch in the staff lounge and heard a colleague say, “They always have an excuse for not turning their work in. They forgot to bring it home, they lost their flash drive, their printer wasn’t working, yada yada”. I immediately piped up: “You know, have you thought about using Google Docs? Their work is stored online, so they can access it from anywhere”. “OH! That’s great! Can you … More

The Trouble With Teen Programming

The Trouble With Teen Programming | School libraries for information literacy and learning! | Scoop.it
Forget centralized programming, adapted kid activities, and advisory boards. Teen activities should be patron-driven, dynamic, and constantly in flux.
Anu Ojaranta's insight:

Libraries are too often settling with "they are not interesteg". How to engage teens more?

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, October 3, 11:32 AM

When we rely on outcomes as the measure, we miss the relational aspects of learning which entails the complex conversations around curricula. Deep learning could draw some of its philosophy from deep ecology which thinks not in terms of just outcomes, but about the context and conversations.

Audrey's curator insight, October 5, 4:35 PM

Creative thinking, analytical thinking, learning styles for different types of information, active rather than passive learning.  All of these start from a young age. 

 

All parents can encourage their children to use their brain - home learning is for every child, even those who go to school.

New study: multitaskers have lower grey-matter density; link to poor attention, depression, anxiety | School libraries for information literacy and learning! | Scoop.it

"Simultaneously using mobile phones, laptops and other media devices could be changing the structure of our brains, according to new University of Sussex research.

 

A study published today (24 September) reveals that people who frequently use several media devices at the same time have lower grey-matter density in one particular region of the brain compared to those who use just one device occasionally."

5 Tips For Keeping Students On Task While Using Technology

5 Tips For Keeping Students On Task While Using Technology | School libraries for information literacy and learning! | Scoop.it

"Playing games, chatting with their friends, and browsing the internet are all likely suspects drawing your students’ attention away from whatever the task at hand happens to be, but just because students have access to technology doesn’t mean you have to transform into device police and forget about teaching. Even if your students would much rather be watching videos on YouTube than learning about the Roman Empire, you still have the upper hand: they want to be using the device. Period."

Schools We Can Envy by Diane Ravitch

Schools We Can Envy by Diane Ravitch | School libraries for information literacy and learning! | Scoop.it
To an American observer, the most remarkable fact about Finnish education is that students do not take any standardized tests until the end of high school. They do take tests, but the tests are drawn up by their own teachers, not by a multinational testing corporation. The Finnish nine-year comprehensive school is a “standardized testing-free zone,” where children are encouraged “to know, to create, and to sustain natural curiosity.”
