Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, August 5, 7:37 PM

Are all children and youth more distracted? Yes, there may be more choices and children will need to treat choices like samplers they can take time with and savour each sample long enough to know if it is something that appeals to them. For that, they will need responsible adults in their lives i.e. teachers and parents.

Hands off our places of learning

Hands off our places of learning | School libraries for information literacy and learning! | Scoop.it
MORE than 10 million Australians are ­library members and there are more than 110 million visits to libraries every year.

 

School library staff support student literacy – not only reading, but also information literacy (how to find things) and digital literacy (how to find and use information online and in electronic formats).

They are the go-to for cyber­safety, helping children stay safe online and they provide essential resources for teachers, based on their curriculum needs.

"The news: Harry Potter's greatest feat might not have been defeating Voldemort, but teaching young people around the world to battle prejudice. At least that's the finding of a new paper in the Journal of Applied Social Psychology, which claims reading the Harry Potter series significantly improved young peoples' perception of stigmatized groups like immigrants, homosexuals or refugees."

The “Digital Native,” a Profitable Myth

The “Digital Native,” a Profitable Myth | School libraries for information literacy and learning! | Scoop.it

Technology buzzwords, although annoying, often seem innocuous enough. They’re just catchy and trite enough to bleed into common usage, but just misleading and obfuscatory enough as to discourage deep analysis. Two of the most widespread buzzwords and phrases to escape the tech world and infiltrate our general lexicon are the couplet “digital native” and “digital immigrant.”

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, July 13, 1:41 PM

An academic article from The British Journal of Educational Technology last year, which critically examined the discourse around “digital natives,” found that “rather than being empirically and theoretically informed, the debate can be likened to an academic form of a ‘moral panic.’” The authors found that the commonly made claims are largely under-researched or just plain wrong when compared to the data.

Tony Bates is bezig met een nieuw boek over doceren in  het digitale tijdperk. Deze bijdrage is een concept tekst over leertheorieën en online leren. Bates gaat hierin o.a. in op het belang van leertheorieën, en op vijf 'leertheorieën'. Opvallend is de aparte aandacht voor online samenwerkend leren. Bates stelt dat leertheorieën beschrijven hoe mensen leren, maar niet automatisch aangeven wat dat betekent voor didactiek (hoe moet je doceren).

20 Things Educators Need To Know About Digital Literacy Skills | School libraries for information literacy and learning! | Scoop.it

Widely understood to be essential to success in the workplace and modern life, digital literacy is beginning to emerge as a necessary component of curricula across the globe. As current undergraduates have never known a life without the internet, it’s only natural that universities should nurture their familiarity with technology, encouraging its use in teaching and learning. Instructors should also be prepared to offer guidance on what students aren’t as familiar with–turning their technical skills into skills for lifelong learning and employability.

"Digitaalinen lukutaito ei ole tietotekniikkaa, se on teknologian käyttöä ajattelun kehittämiseen. Jos kriittisen ajattelun taidot eivät vielä ole olennainen osa oppilaittesi tietoyhteiskuntavalmiuksia, sinun on aika pohtia opetusstrategioitasi."

What does the term "digitally literate" mean? This article gices some prompts about what digital literacy is- and what it isn't.

Kristen McDaniel's curator insight, August 4, 11:15 AM

I really enjoyed this article on "do's" and "don'ts" for empowering students in digital literacy techniques.  I think we forget - this is where our students shine. The article points out that today's undergraduates have NEVER known life without the internet.  How do we use that to help our students learn more?
