Self Organised Learning Environments (SOLEs) developed out of Professor Sugata Mitra's earlier Hole in the Wall experiments, which demonstrated that given access to a computer and internet connection, children are capable of teaching themselves.

St. Aidan's Primary School, Gateshead, are the key research partner in an ongoing SOLE study. iLab are collecting data to support research into how SOLE methodology can be adapted to enquiry based learning in UK classrooms.

Just what I was trying to tell someone the other day. She said, "my students don't like to read novels, but I suppose I should take the kids to the library." To which I replied, "But they like to use the Internet to find things; wouldn't you like for them to do a better job of finding things?"

Exploring Curation as a core competency in digital and media literacy education | Mihailidis | Journal of Interactive Media in Education

In today’s hypermedia landscape, youth and young adults are increasingly using social media platforms, online aggregators and mobile applications for daily information use. Communication educators, armed with a host of free, easy-to-use online tools, have the ability to create dynamic approaches to teaching and learning about information and communication flow online.

 

In this paper we explore the concept of curation as a student- and creation-driven pedagogical tool to enhance digital and media literacy education. We present a theoretical justification for curation and present six key ways that curation can be used to teach about critical thinking, analysis and expression online. We utilize a case study of the digital curation platform Storify to explore how curation works in the classroom, and present a framework that integrates curation pedagogy into core media literacy education learning outcomes.

Learning To Learn | Office Hours | Teacher Librarians Rule | Scoop.it

“BEING ADAPTABLE IN A FLAT world, knowing how to ‘learn how to learn,’ will be one of the most important assets any worker can have, because job churn will come faster, because innovation will happen faster,” writes Thomas Friedman in The World Is Flat. I’ve invoked this “learn to learn” mantra before, but recent shifts in the opportunities for librarians and library staff to learn have brought me back to it.
