How Teens Do Research in the Digital World | Pew Research Center's Internet & American Life Project

How Teens Do Research in the Digital World | Pew Research Center's Internet & American Life Project | Transliterate | Scoop.it
A survey of Advanced Placement and National Writing Project teachers finds that teens’ research habits are changing in the digital age...

 

The survey doesn't address the inability of students to judge the credibility of a source without direct instruction in this area. Students are Googling specific questions and taking the first source at the top of the results list regardless of who wrote it, oftentimes another student somewhere else in the world. They don't stop to think logically--does this even make sense?

 

They don't cross reference. They don't see the loops that exist (Source A sites Source B which sites Source C which sites Source A).

The Barnes Foundation - Home | Transliterate | Scoop.it

Barnes was an art collector; his galleries are very intentional in the ways the items are being put together--the pictures juxtaposed help you to see the group of items the way Barnes (or the curator) wanted to you see them.

PowerPoint Killer Prezi Launches New Interface

PowerPoint Killer Prezi Launches New Interface | Transliterate | Scoop.it

Prezi, a popular alternative to Microsoft PowerPoint and other presentation applications, launched a new version of its interface today. The company, which is advised by Jack Dorsey, also announced that it has passed the 15 million user milestone.

For those not familiar, Prezi uses a map-like metaphor for creating presentations instead of a slideshow metaphor. This makes it possible to create non-linear presentations, or presentations that use spatial metaphors for organizing ideas, like mind maps...

Sqworl: A Lightbox for Shared Links | Transliterate | Scoop.it

"Here at ReadWriteWeb, we're big fans of URL shorteners (although not all URL shorteners mind you).  Using Sqworl to shorten links does two things: first, it helps you organize a series of links under one short URL, and second, it provides a series of site thumbnails - a lightbox of sorts - so recipients can see what they're getting before they click."
