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, 2014 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.

Questions Learners Should Be Addressing Every Day at School by Jackie Gerstein

Questions Learners Should Be Addressing Every Day at School by Jackie Gerstein | School libraries for information literacy and learning! | Scoop.it
I believe it is every educator's responsibility to help insure that learners are addressing the following questions during each school day: What questions am I asking today? What answers am I seeking today? What am I exploring today? What am I making today? What am I finding exciting today? How am I playing and having…

Amina Oyegoke's curator insight, March 9, 2:54 AM
As soon as I read the title of this article I immediately though of when I had to read Chapter 1 of my Computer Literacy textbook. Being a part of the "tech savvy" generation I thought I knew mostly everything about digital and computer literacy, and I thought that class was going to be a piece of cake. Turns out, there's way more to computers and anything else digital that I had no clue about. So much stuff that the main part of the class is reading, reading, reading. You would think a computer class would be more hands on, but since technology is evolving so fast, the professor can only go over so much in the time that he has. In this article it starts off right away informing its readers the difference between digital skills and digital literacy. The author, Sally Pewhairangi, also gave examples about the difference between the skills and literacy of research. From those findings, I found the author to be credible because she is an Auckland-based librarian who specializes in Library Intelligence.

Déplacement de paradigme et les méthodes pédagogiques appropriées. 

Susanna Lavialle's curator insight, March 25, 5:14 PM
We often tend to carry on with our typical teaching methods, and sometimes believe that the trainer needs to stay in charge of the learning event. It can be useful to check out this list... stop and evaluate the different options out there that shift the weight from teacher to learner. Surely there is a part of the learning objective that could be covered better through a learner centered approach.
Philip Smith's curator insight, August 5, 8:44 AM

Not all learner-centered methods involve group work. Here are some other ideas.

Anu Ojaranta: Muutos! | School libraries for information literacy and learning! | Scoop.it

Tämä vuodenvaihde tuo jälleen muutoksen työntäyteeseen elämääni. Siirryin pois päätoimisen opettajan työstä ja muutan toimistoni Åbo Akademille. Väitöskirjatyö veti nyt pidemmän korren. Pidin opettamisesta todella paljon, mutta väitöskirjan aihe vaatii nyt paneutumista. Eli opettajasta apurahatutkijaksi!


Olen myös perustanut toiminimen, jonka puitteissa pidän esitelmiä ja koulutuksia. Tarkoituksena on jakaa kokemustani sekä osaamistani koulujen ja kirjastojen yhteistyön edistämiseksi, konkreettisten ratkaisujen kehittämiseksi. Myös ohjatun tutkimisen menetelmään, Guided Inquiry, saa minulta ohjausta.
