The end of ‘just Google it’: Why students need to be digitally literate

The end of ‘just Google it’: Why students need to be digitally literate | Technically Speaking | Scoop.it
With so much information readily available in a range of multimodal formats, from text to multimedia, apps and social networking, we need to blend technological learning and critical literacy together so that students can critically appraise the information that they are accessing. Teaching digital literacy is something that can be embedded into regular teaching in all subjects at all stages of education. To do that, it needs to be explicitly taught and reinforced by every teacher in every subject in a way that is appropriate for students.

Curatorially Yours's insight:

A terrific article that explores why digital literacy skills are so essential. Not just device proficiency! Not just effective search skills! Our students need to think critically about what they view - this requires explicit teaching.

Great post on the need to blend technological learning and critical literacy together so that students can critically appraise the information that they are accessing.

Voilà une des compétences du 21e siècle. D'abord les profs doivent être plus intelligents que de dire d'aller le chercher sur Google, et les étudiants doivent avoir quelques stratégies pour chercher de l'information sur Internet. Google en soi renvoie tout et n'importe quoi (en privilégiant son propre écosystème d'ailleurs).

Teacher Apps for Fighting Digital Distraction and Managing Online Time ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Technically Speaking | Scoop.it
There are now a wide range of apps you can use on your iOS operated devices to help you keep track of how much time you spend on your tasks and activities. Below are some of our favourite apps we recommend for teachers and educators

Via Heather Perkinson
Curatorially Yours's insight:
IOS apps only, but there are some decent Android equivalents. The idea behind Pomodoro, for example, is working in chunks of time. The 'Brain Focus' app on Android, for example, can be used as a timer in a similar way.
