"This is an interesting workshop presentation given at #converge11 by Joyce Seitzinger. It has a focus on curation in EduTech but is generic as well in a lot of aspects."

I've been exploring the idea of 'the social media classroom' and how I view teachers with an emerging role as curators, but also teaching student the skills of curation so they can get the right resources in an age of ubiquitous information. I'll have to keep in touch.

Nice one thanks for this. I have been following your Scoops. You can also set up and share your scoops on Internet Billboards, it's very easy to set up and do and there is no extra effort just a couple clicks. Like this http://t.co/63g5ViEq Also do you have a blog? Just curious.

Technology in the classroom: Widening a digital divide or... | School libraries for information literacy and learning! | Scoop.it
In the weeks before the International Society for Technology in Education conference in Atlanta concluding Tuesday, I received more than 20 emails from publicists suggesting interviews with makers of educational technology products/programs/software here to tout their wares.
Anu Ojaranta's insight:

"But low–frills technology in schools can lead to unintended consequences. Recent researchshows that though “technology has often been hailed as the great equalizer of educational opportunity, a growing body of evidence indicates that in many cases, tech is actually having the opposite effect.”

Children of different socioeconomic backgrounds use technology differently, with varying amounts of academic impact.  Their different experiences have the potential to widen existing opportunity gaps in American society."

 

Very important findings concerning equal opportunities to learning and studying. And this division of use has just happened? Is there a way to change the direction?

School Library. Media Literacy and Learning Commons in the Digital Age: Knowledge Model

School Library. Media Literacy and Learning Commons in the Digital Age: Knowledge Model | School libraries for information literacy and learning! | Scoop.it
"School libraries today feel increasing pressure to reinvent themselves in the face of increasing financial pressures, new media technologies, and a progressively media-savvy population. Their transformation from information reserve to knowledge center has been fast underway. This paper builds on that evolution to develop an argument for media literacy education as the pedagogical foundation for the learning commons model for school libraries. This would position the school library as a dynamic media literacy learning hub, anchoring entire schools around knowledge, expression, collaboration, and creation in both virtual and physical spaces. The paper will highlight the case of Chelmsford High School Learning Commons in Chelmsford, Massachusetts, as a vibrant central space in a school for just this type of integrated learning."
