Study Proves Why We Need Digital Literacy Education

Study Proves Why We Need Digital Literacy Education | Technology in Education | Scoop.it

What Mueller and Oppenheimer discovered in their experiments is that laptop use correlates strongly with taking verbatim notes, and, as was already known, verbatim note-taking is well-known to be less effective than note-taking that synthesizes and summarizes content.

Still not sure I agree with these conclusions.

Elizabeth Dalton's curator insight, August 16, 7:58 AM

Interesting research - but we need to be careful about the conclusions that are drawn from it.  Most important, in my view, is the point that while we do need to learn how to operate digital tools, we cannot assume that we should stop there - we also need to learn how and where they fit to support or facilitate learning.  This article shows that information literacy is just as important as digital literacy - librarians have ALWAYS known this - and we need to pay attention to this point!

Edupunk and student centred learning through technology | Technology in Education | Scoop.it

I’ve often wondered why it is that the internet is such an amazing, creative and inspiring place full of so many fantastically interesting things, and yet so many educational software, applications and e-learning products turn out to be so dull.

A to the point analysis of why we need a punk attitude to educational institutions. They slow down adoption of new technology in education

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, August 13, 4:39 PM

It is interesting that we think there are no economic interests at play in the e-learning world. There are and they are significant. It does not mean we don't use various digital technologies, but let us make sure we ask questions and challenge their usages when needed.

How Do Digital Portfolios Help Students Learn?

How Do Digital Portfolios Help Students Learn? | Technology in Education | Scoop.it

Digital Digital student portfolios can provide what other assessment tools cannot: Real, unabridged, minimally processed artifacts of learning that make sense to all the learners in the classroom, including the teacher. Technology used in this way can bring us as close as we can get to peering inside our students’ hearts and minds to find out what they currently know and are able to do.

How to Get the Most Out of Student-Owned Devices in Any Classroom

How to Get the Most Out of Student-Owned Devices in Any Classroom | Technology in Education | Scoop.it

Technical issues with devices can be a headache, so setting some ground rules for device management helps mitigate some hiccups. Mills recommends making it clear that it is students’ responsibility to bring their device to school charged and ready to go. Designating a spot on student desks or tables where devices go when they aren’t being used for a specific assignment is also a great way to deter students from succumbing to distraction.

Can You Really Teach a MOOC in a Refugee Camp? – Wired Campus - Blogs - The Chronicle of Higher Education

Can You Really Teach a MOOC in a Refugee Camp? – Wired Campus - Blogs - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Technology in Education | Scoop.it

One narrative that has driven widespread interest in free online courses known as MOOCs is that they can help educate the world. But critics like to emphasize that the courses mostly draw students who already hold traditional degrees.

So when Coursera, the largest provider of MOOCs, published a blog post about how a professor had used one of its online courses to teach refugees near the Kenya-Somalia border, it sounded to some like a satire of Silicon Valley’s naïve techno-optimism: Hundreds of thousands of devastated Africans stranded in a war zone? MOOCs to the rescue!
