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

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

Why K-12 schools are failing by not teaching SEARCH | The Thinking Stick

Why K-12 schools are failing by not teaching SEARCH | The Thinking Stick | TPS Library | Scoop.it

“I’m sorry the K-12 system has failed your students….they should know how to search by the time they get to college. But seeing that they don’t, until your students come prepared, you are going to have to pick up the slack.”

I then spent 30 minutes teaching university faculty how to search….because guess what……they didn’t know how to either. Which is exactly what I’ve come across with K-12 teachers, which helps to explain the unpreparedness of our students. So who is teaching our teachers the skills they need to teach our students?

Re-Visioning A School Library | Connected Principals | TPS Library | Scoop.it

This year we have embarked on the process of updating our Media Resource Centre to better meet the needs of our students and teachers as they full immerse in the data rich world we live in. Let me begin by stating that our school’s BYOD policy, in conjunction with a robust WiFi network (handling up to 4000 devices simultaneously) has already gone a long way of transforming this place of learning.

How To Find Openly Licensed Educational Resources You Can Use [Infographic]

How To Find Openly Licensed Educational Resources You Can Use [Infographic] | TPS Library | Scoop.it

Posted by Jeff Hurt

 

"Most of us turn to the internet when we are looking for resources to use for a presentation, report or article. The internet holds the key to so many robust resources.

 

"Yet how many of these resources can you legally use for free? How many of them can you adapt?

 

"That’s where Open Educational Resources (OER) can help. Here’s an infographic from the Center for Open Educational Resources and Language Learning (at the University of Texas at Austin) that can help."
