Nurturing Literacy: Tips and Resources For Developing Lifelong Readers - Edutopia

Nurturing Literacy: Tips and Resources For Developing Lifelong Readers - Edutopia | Summer Reading | Scoop.it

"The importance of early literacy cannot be understated. Countless studies have shown that students who start reading earlier are better prepared for the academic road ahead. Not to mention, early readers are much more likely to become lifelong readers."

Creating Learning Environments

Creating Learning Environments | Summer Reading | Scoop.it

"A while ago I witnessed students taking computer-based classes passing their tests with ease until I figured out what they were doing. They had two screens open -- one was the computer-based course and the other screen was Google, Wikipedia, or Ask Jeeves. When they ran across a question they did not know, they just looked up the answer on one of those other sites. This incident made me think a bit. What do teachers have to offer students when they can learn anything they want from searching it on the Internet? Why should a student sit in class (or classes) all day long when they can find all the information they need instantly? With so much knowledge everywhere, aren't we trying to sell a product they already have? Even if the technology were ubiquitous in school and out of school, the answer to that question is simple: Instant knowledge has changed how everyone learns because the questions we need to have answered are just a few clicks away." | by Ben Johnson

Teaching With Infographics

Teaching With Infographics | Summer Reading | Scoop.it

"This past week I taught a few classes on infographics and decided to update the page by adding a section called "Teaching With Infographics". It is important for your students to make sure that they evaluate any infographics they are using, by making sure the author/creator has cited their references. Misinformation on the web exists. Have students read these tips to make a better infographic."

The Rice Process's curator insight, February 9, 2014 10:35 AM

Very helpful and great tips to follow.

Claudia Estrada's curator insight, February 23, 2014 2:56 PM

Working with info graphics has become an important skill now a days because new generation reads better images with less text.  Helping students to become good users of it is developing 21st. century learners.

TFTP (Technology For The People)

Ioana Literat, a doctoral student at USC’s Annenberg School of Communication, describes her experience training young women in India to teach new media literacies in their own communities. Literat writes about the power of these skills for young Muslim women who have little opportunities for education as teachers or students. But that hasn’t stopped them. “As a woman, I have more responsibilities to do in society,” said one 8th-grade student from the Railway Girls High School in Hyderabad, India. “I will help girls get education and explain to them the importance of education for their future.” Literat worked in partnership with two organizations, The Modern Story and Technology for the People. She describes her experience training young female teachers in new media literacies and then placing them in classrooms in all-girls public schools. Watch the tech savvy girls at work in this video.
