The Effect Of Parental Involvement On Academic Achievement
Anne-Mart Olsen's insight:

Parents kick start academic literacies... it's important to recognise this - even in higher education. We expect students to have access to all kinds of literacies, digital and academic. Unfortunately, these cannot be taught but only learnt through immersing oneself in the genre ... this starts at home.

Sherry Turkle: Connected, but alone? | Video on TED.com

As we expect more from technology, do we expect less from each other?
Anne-Mart Olsen's insight:

"I share therefore I am" 

I found this talk incredibly useful to assist with understanding the students we are teaching (and ourselves) and our vulnerability to technology. Connectivity and techonology is powerful BUT should remain fit for purpose and the balance should be part of our digital fluency.

Learning Through Digital Media » How I Used Wikis to Get My Students to Do Their Readings

Learning Through Digital Media » How I Used Wikis to Get My Students to Do Their Readings | Student Support for the Digital Citizen | Scoop.it

"We have heard the complaint or issued it ourselves one too many times: “They don’t read!”

 

But can Digital Media provide some simple pedagogical models to promote a more active engagement with that most ancient and passive form of learning: the reading assignment? In this article, I describe the use of Wikis (web pages that people can easily edit as a group) to get students to summarize, ask questions, and comment on a reading before they even meet for class. And while many new—and old—tools can be used to accomplish similar results, what is innovative about this approach is that whereas before reading and writing was something students were supposed to do individually in the isolation of their rooms or the library, now—thanks to Wikis—it is a project they tackle collaboratively as a class. The goals of this critical pedagogy are thus both modest and radical, at the intersection of old and new technologies: to use Digital Media to change the way students interact with texts."

 

Assignment provided and reflection on it's impact on student learning. A really worthwhile read!

Ken Morrison's comment, October 3, 2012 8:45 AM
This has been on my mind a lot lately. It frustrates me that so many teachers are ready to gather around Wikipedia like a pinata and beat it down. It is still sooooooo young. It can become something really special if we nurture it and encourage wise use. For example, the most powerful part is not the front page but by going under the hood and looking at the discussions about what should be on the front page. Helping our students find those discussions is so important. Ken

In his wonderful Book " Literacy in the New Media Age  ", Gunther Kress talked about the shifting metrics of literacy and how digital media reshaped the focus of literacy. For him, the image is now displacing the written code as the predominant mode of communication. The screen is replacing the book.

Original thinking takes practice and recognition of opportunity, and finding the sparkplug that catalyzes these thoughts should be a regularly identifiable and usable mechanism for those looking to magnify the impact of those ideas.
