New culture of learning

Web 2.0 allows students and educators to create and interact both synchronously and asynchronously, formally or informally, at school, at home, in distance education programs, in the workplace, on all manner of devices. This shift has required an open mind about future possibilities, while also documenting innovative or exemplar practices and their relationship to curriculum. Now Web 3.0 heralds a further development in online information behaviours and knowledge discovery techniques. Are we keeping up-to-date with the relevant network and social media changes that are affecting the online learning environment that we wish to embrace? Can you spot the wolf in sheep’s clothing?

 

This was a short presentation and discussion starter.

Our Space: Being a Responsible Citizen of the Digital World | The GoodWork Project

Our Space: Being a Responsible Citizen of the Digital World | The GoodWork Project | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it

For most young people today, engagement with new digital media is a routine aspect of life. Through computers, mobile phones, and other handheld devices, youth can blog, tweet, participate in social networks like Facebook, play massive multi-player games, use online information sources, and share videos, stories, music, and art they’ve created. Important skills and knowledge can be gained from such activities, but there are also risks. For example, young people may only rarely consider what it means to be an ethical, socially responsible “citizen” on the Internet.

 

Our Space is a set of curricular materials designed to encourage high school students to reflect on the ethical dimensions of their participation in new media environments.

Looking Toward the Future: Competences for 21st-Century Teacher-Librarians | de Groot | Alberta Journal of Educational Research

Looking Toward the Future: Competences for 21st-Century Teacher-Librarians | de Groot | Alberta Journal of Educational Research | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it

This article reports on a study by Joanne de Groot and Jennifer Branch that explored what the core competencies required by teacher librarians for developing exemplary school library programs in 21st centurt schools based on the experiences and attitudes of graduates from the TL Masters program at the University of Alberta. Key findings from this study indicate that technology and leadership issues are the most pressing needs of TLs. These graduates also indicated that their “traditional roles and responsibilities” are changing as they are responsible for promoting new literacies and evaluating, selecting, organizing, and managing diverse learning resources. The best way of getting your hands on this article is via EBSCOhost's Education Research Complete unless your organisation subscribes directly to the Alberta Journal of Educational Research (AJER).
