Developing Your Digital Study Skills

Developing Your Digital Study Skills | teaching with technology | Scoop.it

Making the move from our safe and trusted traditional literacy habits to newer digital skills can be quite a challenge, but as teachers I think we are really unlikely to be able to use technology and help our students use technology really effectively unless we are prepared to face this challenge. Technology needs to be more than part of the way we teach but it also has to be part of the way we ourselves continue to learn and part of our everyday professional practice.

PLEs are much wider than this, taking in experiences Steve Wheeler, University of Plymouth, 2011 Personal and realia, as well as learning through Learning Personal TV, music, paper based Network Learning materials, radio & more formal contexts.
