Developing Your Digital Study Skills

Developing Your Digital Study Skills | Universal Design for Learning | Scoop.it

Making the move from our safe and trusted traditional literacy habits to newer digital skills can be quite a challenge, but as teachers I think we are really unlikely to be able to use technology and help our students use technology really effectively unless we are prepared to face this challenge. Technology needs to be more than part of the way we teach but it also has to be part of the way we ourselves continue to learn and part of our everyday professional practice.

Christin Lopez's curator insight, October 23, 2014 7:15 AM

This site provides a way to have an online textbook that you can share with students. Even in the free edition, there are upgrade charges for features and more storage, you can create and join classes. 

 

It looks like this has the potential to be a great resource, but I found trouble right away while searching for a couple topics that I currently teach. There are not textbooks that have tags that help me find what I was looking for. This made me question if the information is on the site and not tagged, or is it too new that others have not uploaded information. I thought that the software creators would have obtained copyright privileges for a number of topics to start the site out. They would have been seed ideas to get the ball rolling. For you to upload PDFs, you need to have the copyright permissions. So while the potential is there for individualizing, it is not a quick jump right into it.
