Educational Technology in ELT: Visual literacy: Flickr-fed web 2.0 tools | social media in education | Scoop.it

Every picture tells a story, Flickr allows you to upload, collect and search images, many are Creative Commons meaning you can re-use them in your own articles and presentations (usually attributing the person who was kind enough to allow you to re-use it). Access to so many images provides a huge resource that can be used effectively with learners, especially perhaps English, art and language students. Many ideas to fire up your own imagination are outlined here.

How are higher education professionals using LinkedIn? | social media in education | Scoop.it

"With so many education-centric social networking sites as of late, it's almost easy to overlook LinkedIn. Arguably the largest professional networking site on the Web, LinkedIn offers a variety of resources, including its recently launched University pages and groups targeted at professionals in various industries, like Education Dive's Higher Education Management group. 

 

To get a better idea of how higher education professionals are leveraging LinkedIn's resources, we asked members of Higher Education Management to tell us how they've benefited from using the site."

Digital Literacies and Web Literacies: What's the Difference? | DMLcentral

Digital Literacies and Web Literacies: What's the Difference? | DMLcentral | social media in education | Scoop.it

I’m currently iterating some work around Web Literacies for the Mozilla Foundation (you can see the latest version of my thinking here). Perhaps the biggest consideration when dealing with so-called ‘New’ Literacies is distinguishing them from one another, so what I want to consider in this post is the relationship between Digital literacies and Web literacies. Aren’t they just synonyms?

 

The topic of digital literacies was the focus of my doctoral thesis, which is available to read online at neverendingthesis.com. The conclusion I came to after delving deeply into the research was that we need to always talk about literacies in their plurality and that there are broadly eight essential elements to digital literacies. My question when it comes to Web Literacies, therefore, is whether (a) they constitute a subset of Digital Literacies, (b) they are wholly distinct from Digital Literacies, or (c) there is some overlap between the two. These three positions are represented by the graphic at the top of this post.
