The end of ‘just Google it’: Why students need to be digitally literate

The end of ‘just Google it’: Why students need to be digitally literate | Sharing Information literacy ideas | Scoop.it
“ With so much information readily available in a range of multimodal formats, from text to multimedia, apps and social networking, we need to blend technological learning and critical literacy together so that students can critically appraise the information that they are accessing. Teaching digital literacy is something that can be embedded into regular teaching in all subjects at all stages of education. To do that, it needs to be explicitly taught and reinforced by every teacher in every subject in a way that is appropriate for students.”

Willem Kuypers's curator insight, October 12, 2015 12:20 PM

Voilà une des compétences du 21e siècle. D'abord les profs doivent être plus intelligents que de dire d'aller le chercher sur Google, et les étudiants doivent avoir quelques stratégies pour chercher de l'information sur Internet. Google en soi renvoie tout et n'importe quoi (en privilégiant son propre écosystème d'ailleurs).

Curatorially Yours's curator insight, October 15, 2015 6:07 PM

A terrific article that explores why digital literacy skills are so essential. Not just device proficiency! Not just effective search skills! Our students need to think critically about what they view - this requires explicit teaching.

IL is an international, peer- reviewed journal that aims to investigate information literacy in all its forms to address the interests of diverse IL communities of practice. JIL welcomes contributions that push the boundaries of IL beyond the educational setting and examine this phenomenon as a continuum between those involved in its development and delivery and those benefiting from its provision.  JIL has an average acceptance rate of 44% for articles submitted to the journal.

Smart Reading Strategies Students Should Develop ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Smart Reading Strategies Students Should Develop ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Sharing Information literacy ideas | Scoop.it
“ Smart reading is a skill that students develop through using a set of robust strategies in their reading and analyzing of texts. I am not talking here about critical reading or close reading (through both of these types can be part of smart reading), smart reading is about knowing what to read, when to read , and how to read it. It is a holistic kind of practice that integrates other key reading skills such as skimming and scanning. In this wonderful visual from Learning Commons are featured some useful strategies students can use to improve their reading competencies towards becoming better and smart readers. These strategies include:”

Step by Step: Designing Personalized Learning Experiences For Students - Mind/Shift

Step by Step: Designing Personalized Learning Experiences For Students - Mind/Shift | Sharing Information literacy ideas | Scoop.it
The phrase “personalized learning” gets tossed around a lot in education circles. Sometimes it’s used in the context of educational technology tools that offer lessons keyed to the academic level of individual students. Other times it’s referring to the personal touch of a teacher getting to know a student, learning about their interests and tailoring lessons to meet both their needs and their passion areas. As with most education jargon, the phrase isn’t fixed, but it usually connects to the idea that not all students need the same thing at the same time. It implies choice, multiple pathways to learning, many ways to demonstrate competency and resists the notion that all students learn the same way.

Educator Mia MacMeekin has put together a clear infographic highlighting some of the ways teachers design “personalized” curriculum.

Elizabeth Hutchinson's insight:

Why is the term "information literacy" such a problem for teachers? It is generally not understood so it's time we looked at finding out what our teachers call finding, critically evaluating, researching and using information ethically. We can then use the term that they know and understand.
