It may be ironic that it takes significant search skills to find the wealth of information about informaiton fluency packed into the 21CIF website. To open doors to content, this page will introduce you to hyperlinked content that will help you to teach students how to locate, evaluate, and ethically use digital information.

Arizona State University, Claire McLaughlin's curator insight, January 1, 6:53 PM

To be honest, I had never heard of the World Digital Library until I read this article.  What an interesting collection of cultural works.  I especially liked the Time Line feature at the top of the page as well as several of the items under Explore.  This resource could be useful in secondary level social studies and foreign language classes to name a few.

Twitter

Twitter hosts a great population of passionate educators from all walks of life and from all reaches. 

I’ve yet to plan a lesson without turning to my Professional Learning Network on Twitter for their input, resources, and advice.

 

With a decreasing budget and increasing demands on classroom teachers, having access to a tribe of educators on Twitter provides me tools, strategies, and a support system that I can rely on to continually help me to become a better instructional leader and classroom manager.

 

It’s not just about sharing. Twitter is a place where educators can actively reflect on successes and failures in the classroom while working together to extend what works and improve what doesn’t.

Information fluency model

Information fluency model | Technology in Schools | Scoop.it

Digital Information Fluency (DIF) is the ability to find, evaluate and use digital information effectively, efficiently and ethically. DIF involves knowing how digital information is different from print information; having the skills to use specialized tools for finding digital information; and developing the dispositions needed in the digital information environment. As teachers and librarians develop these skills and teach them to students, students will become better equipped to achieve their information needs.

How One Classroom Actually Used iPads To Go Paperless (Part 1: Research) | Edudemic

How One Classroom Actually Used iPads To Go Paperless (Part 1: Research) | Edudemic | Technology in Schools | Scoop.it

A look at what hapened at Plymouth South High School last year when one class "attempted to transform the traditional research process to a completely paperless one using a fresh cart of iPads."

A number of goals were "outlined prior to the research process" and included (quoting from the post):

* Students will crowd-source their research to a collective research group.

* Students will incorporate varied media types into their research: web based text, traditional text, audio and video.

* Students will work collaboratively with their teacher and classmates on their research and writing process.

* Students will become proficient researching and writing in a digital environment.

The post alos discusses the process of going paperles and  "moving forward and going paperless."

Digital Native – Digital Immigrant – Digital Learning Quadrants

Digital Native – Digital Immigrant – Digital Learning Quadrants | Technology in Schools | Scoop.it

Have you heard the terms digital native and digital immigrant, and placed yourself in one space or the other? Have you seen a generation divide in learning and teaching? The article ‘The Fallacy of Digital Natives’ explores these issues. One source quoted is the Berkman Center for Internet and Society (Harvard University) “Those who were not ‘born digital’ can be just as connected , if not more so, than their younger counterparts.”
A follow-up to this article is ‘Introducing the Digital Learning Quadrants’ where Dan Pontefract introduces “a classification that encompasses all ages and takes into account the realities of access and participation levels…”  (at http://www.danpontefract.com/?p=1309)

Both articles are worth checking out.
