Visual Literacy - Metalanguage & Learning

Visual Literacy - Metalanguage & Learning | Education | Scoop.it

What it means to be literate today is significantly different to what is
was in the not too distant past. Once, being able to decode text was
sufficient even if barely so. Today literacy involves the ability to make
meaning from a multitude of text types, formats and modalities. The skills required are more diverse and the opportunities for engagement are much expanded. This new literacy with its multiple dimensions requires teaching programmes with a broad depth and appropriate scaffolds

This might come out sounding like learning requires the carrot on a stick but in fact, it's more about making work that might be tedious and based on drill and practice a bit more fun and competitive. Learning requires a much deeper engagement than can in my opinion be achieved with gamification techniques.

Tony Palmeri's curator insight, October 25, 2015 10:10 AM

I chose this resource because I recently sent out my first educational tweet. I like the idea of using a twitter feed to disseminate information. Also, I've noticed that playing on phones is something that occurs regularly and perhaps it will persist regardless of how it might be perceived (I think it's disrespectful, but probably a battle not worth fighting). So, with the suggestions posted here, maybe tweeting can be used is a positive, constructive way that perhaps enhances a PD session.

Making the most of Bloom's Taxonomy

Making the most of Bloom's Taxonomy | Education | Scoop.it
Sadly when most educators think of Bloom’s they think of just the single domain, the Cognitive, that rules so much of what we do in education. Had we focused on all three domains equally we may have better understood the part we do use and be much closer to a holistic view of education where the ‘Affective’ and ‘Psychomotor’ domains are viewed as equals to the cognitive. It is a shame that partly due to our obsession with Bloom’s we ignore the important aspects of our student’s feelings (hearts) and their doings (hands) despite these clearly playing a part in the taxonomy.
