Teacher's Guide to Information Crap Detection | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Teacher's Guide to Information Crap Detection | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Daring Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Information overload, information crap,information pollution...are some of the words that are being used now to describe the tsunami of irrelevant information we are bombarded with day and night.In  December 2009, Google began customizing its search results for all users, and we entered a new era of personalization. With little notice or fanfare, our online experience is changing, as the websites we visit are increasingly tailoring themselves to us.Everywhere you turn you find information that seems relevant to you but in fact is nothing but crap. This is probably why Eli Pariser recommended what he called Information Bubble.

 

Howard Rheingold is another guy who has done a lot of writings on Information Crap. I have already reviewed his awesome book Net Smart: How to Thrive Online in an article posted last year. Today I am sharirng with you some of the great resources I learned from Howard himself about how to detect crap information and the literacies we need to develop and teach to our students to make them better internet users. Check out the links below and share with us what you think of them. Enjoy

Libraries and Makerspaces: a match made in heaven

Libraries and Makerspaces: a match made in heaven | Daring Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Every discussion of libraries in the age of austerity always includes at least one blowhard who opines, "What do we need libraries for? We've got the Internet now!"


Facepalm.


The problem is that Mr. Blowhard has confused a library with a book depository. Now, those are useful, too, but a library isn't just (or even necessarily) a place where you go to get books for free. Public libraries have always been places where skilled information professionals assisted the general public with the eternal quest to understand the world. Historically, librarians have sat at the coalface between the entire universe of published material and patrons, choosing books with at least a colorable claim to credibility, carefully cataloging and shelving them, and then assisting patrons in understanding how to synthesize the material contained therein.

The nonfiction and literature book lists alone should help reduce fears of students reading insulation manuals!  I hope Scholastic will continue to add to the list, as the titles currently on it are great examples of grade level appropriate books that meet CCSS guidelines.

 

Some of the other links are to Scholastic products, but it's worth looking around.
