Marilyn Korhonen's curator insight, June 20, 2013 7:21 AM

The future is not about a single device or set of devices. According to this author,


"The future is about access, anywhere learning and collaboration, both locally and globally. Teaching and learning is going to be social. Schoolsof the future could have a traditional cohort of students, as well as online only students who live across the country or even the world. Things are already starting to move this way with the emergence of massive open online courses (MOOCs)."

20 Things Educators Need To Know About Digital Literacy Skills

Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 25, 7:21 PM

What does it mean to be digitally literate? If you ask teachers, students, parents, administrators, and community members the responses may be very different. This post explores this issue and notes (for the teacher):

"Digital literacy isn't about knowing computers inside and out; it's about using technology to change the way you think. If critical thinking skills haven't yet become a part of your students' digital citizenship, it's time to think your teaching strategy."

After the introduction, the post is split into two sections:

5 Teaching Practices that Destroy Digital Literacy. One of the practices is "using 'cool' technology to deliver a planned lesson." To learn why click through to the post.

The final section is 15 Habits to Cultivate in Your Students. Two are listed below.

* Read past the first page of Google results (and my suggestion would be to use some of the many alternative search engines. You may be surprised that many other search engines work better for students).

* Train students to react skeptically if they read the phrase  'Research says...' or 'A recent study revealed..."

Teaching teachers and students about copyright and asking them to respect intellectual property is not an easy task, but it is critical that we teach students that plagiarism is not acceptable (and that we follow the same rules). This infographic provides one way for teachers and students to determine what they may do and also provides information on how you may take material you have created and either place it under Creative Commons or choose to copyright the work.

How to Search the Invisible Web

How to Search the Invisible Web | Technology | Scoop.it
While the pages and media found via simple searches may seem unendingly huge at times, what is submerged and largely unseen – often referred to as the invisible web or deep web – is in fact far, far bigger.

Via Beth Dichter
more...
Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 1, 4:41 AM

Many students are not aware that there is an "invisible web" that may be searched, one that is not quite so easy to find but has more information than Google provides (which tends to look at the "Surface Web"). According to this post Google has indexed "roughly 200 terabytes" while the size of the Internet is estimated at "5 million terabytes" of information.

The post provides a look at what is not found through Google (or other common search engines) and then shares:
* A list of Open Access Journal Databases (with over 10 databases with descriptions)

* A list of Invisible Search Engines. Quoting from the post "The search engines that deliver results from the invisible web are distinctly different. Narrower in scope, these deep web engines tend to access only a single type of data…deep web searches tend to be more thoughtful in their initial query requirements." Ten search engines are listed and there is a short description for each.

* A list of subject-specific databases in the following areas

     - Art & Design

     - Business

     - Legal & Social Services

     - Science & Technology

     - Healthcare

Although this post is geared to students in college there are resources that may be used by students in middle or high school provided, and as teachers it is important for us to learn more about this "invisible web" and to share it with our students.
