But here’s the thing: the history of social media actually goes back a lot further, and its roots can be found in blogging, Google, AOL, ICQ, the beginnings of the world wide web and, perhaps surprisingly, CompuServe.

Great read

Shelly Reckow VanVoorst's curator insight, October 24, 2015 7:04 PM

This article speaks to the idea of using technology to add rigor to the classroom and the assignments. Rather than just depending on technology to complete the low level activities (such as word processing), teachers should be adding rigor and higher order thinking skills to the assignments through the use of technology. Others could utilize the information in this article to realize and understand how technology could not only add higher order thinking skills but rigor as well, for all skill levels of students. Increasing the quality of the lesson should not be limited to just the advanced students, but the opportunity should be provided and adjusted to meet the needs of all students.

Guest Post: Do Students Lose Depth in Digital Reading? | The Digital Reader

Guest Post: Do Students Lose Depth in Digital Reading? | The Digital Reader | Technology | Scoop.it
Do students learn as much when they read digitally as they do in print? For both parents and teachers, knowing whether computer-based media are improving or compromising education is a question of concern. With the surge in popularity of e-books, online learning and open educational resources, investigators have been trying to determine whether students do as well when reading an assigned text on a digital screen as on paper. The answer to the question, however, needs far more than a yes-no response. Reading in print versus digitally In my research, I have compared the ways in which we read in print and onscreen. Between 2013 and 2015, I gathered data from 429 university students drawn from five countries (the U.S., Japan, Germany, Slovenia and India). The students in my study reported that print was aesthetically more enjoyable, saying things such as “I like the smell of paper” or that reading in print is “real reading.” What’s more, print gave them a sense of where they were in the book – they could “see” and “feel” where they were in the text. Print is easier on the eyes Print was also judged to be easier on the eyes and less likely [...]

Why not let students choose what works best for them – student voice. To me,  letting students choose what tools they use and how they organize shows a strength based approach to student learning. What benefit is there in forcing students to function in a way that may not be self directed and self optimized?
