How Digital Writing Is Making Kids Smarter

How Digital Writing Is Making Kids Smarter | Tech in teaching | Scoop.it

Writing used to be strictly an in-school activity. Now, kids do 40 percent of their writing outside of school. Called “life writing,” young adults’ social writing spans texts, tweets, social media, and blogs -- and all of it’s making kids more literate.

Histoire de recadrer les pessismistes et passéistes: l'écriture est plus que jamais vivace!

BI Media Specialists's curator insight, November 1, 2013 4:28 PM

I can't believe kids are doing more than 40% of their writing outside of school. "Life writing" may make grammar teachers cringe, but at least students are engaging with others and sharing ideas in this format.

Catherine Byrd Bushby's curator insight, June 21, 2014 10:13 PM

That's why we need to bring social writing into school.

Carmenne K. Thapliyal's insight:

It isn't always easy to bridge the gap. Very often, the age of teachers and the cultural and educational baggage that teachers carry don't always permit easy implementation of new ideas. But yes, that can no longer be an excuse...

Good reflection on the need for a faster pace... the gap is still there, let's bridge it!

The power of noticing in second language acquisition

The power of noticing in second language acquisition | Tech in teaching | Scoop.it

Shona Whyte:

"What is attention, and what role does it play in foreign language learning? That’s the question that this little language note will explore," says Gavin, graduate students in a language-related field at the University of Hawai'i.  

 

After reviewing some of the research on noticing in second language acquisition (Schmidt) and examining four key ideas, he concludes:

"Learning another language exercises our attention brain muscles. And learning to achieve a higher quality of attention in our daily life through daily language exercise can’t be a bad thing…right?"

 

Interesting for teachers as an argument to encourage language learners, but also for information about the key concept of noticing.

Mercedes Kamijo's curator insight, May 2, 2013 10:25 PM

Este informe (en inglés) indaga sobre las opiniones de los padres cuyos hijos pertenecen a una generación móvil, desde niños en edad preescolar hasta estudiantes de la escuela secundaria.

¿Cómo perciben los padres el valor de los dispositivos móviles, qué piensan de su uso con objetivos educativos y de recreación, qué opinan de las posibilidades que brindan los móviles? 

En vista del creciente interés en el M-Learning por parte de instituciones educativas, y en la expansión de los modelos de BYOD ("Trae tu propio dispositivo"), los padres pueden llegar a ser aliados clave en este nuevo campo de aprendizaje.

Hilarious! Just think of those dangers that collaborative, communicative, ICT & 2.0-apps based teaching implies... Voldemort is lurking outside the classroom door... beware!!
