Finally, Consultants to Schools Who Actually Know What They Are Talking About | Education Recoded | Big Think | teaching with technology | Scoop.it
In the book The Third Teacher: 79 Ways You Can Use Design to Transform Teaching & Learning, item 71 on the list is "Consult with Kids. Survey students about what they would like to study, then design spaces that let them learn what they want to learn" (p. 225). As Bruce Mau notes, "This is actually a pretty radical idea: to open source school, to say 'well, maybe the best source of information on this practice is the participants themselves.' We assume they don't know anything, and I think that's the biggest mistake we make" (p. 225).

The Effect of Social Media ( Infographic )

The Effect of Social Media ( Infographic ) | teaching with technology | Scoop.it
The following infographic covers the topic of social media and how it affects our content.Would you imagine how social networking would be if there were no websites in the calibre of Stumble Upon, Twitter, Reddit, Digg, and Facebook ? I don't think we will have the same easy and instant access to the information as we do now.We should be so thankful to those people behind the creation of such tools especially when we measure their importance and benefit in education.

David McCandless: The beauty of data visualization | Video on TED.com

David McCandless turns complex data sets (like worldwide military spending, media buzz, Facebook status updates) into beautiful, simple diagrams that tease out unseen patterns and connections. Good design, he suggests, is the best way to navigate information glut -- and it may just change the way we see the world.

SocialTech: Computer Science is not Digital Literacy

Blog post by Josie Fraser, good round up of what digital literacy is.

 

"Not being able to code doesn't make you digitally illiterate. Not being able to participate in social, economic, cultural and political life because you lack the confidence, skills and opportunity to do so is what makes you digitally illiterate."
