Anu Ojaranta's curator insight, May 17, 12:30 PM

Visitors ja Residents ehdottaa toisenlaista mallia Prenskyn jo 2001 lanseeramalle Natives ja Immigrants jaottelulle digitaalisen osaamisen suhteen. Tämä ei kategorisoi netin suvereeneja käyttäjiä ns sukupolven mukaan vaan käytön ja näppäryyden mukaan. Eli myöskin osaltaan kumoaa diginatiivi ajattelua. Esimerkiks miksi samalla luokalla toinen oppilas palauttaa lukudiplomitehtävän konseptilla lyijykynällä vedetyin marginaalein ja toinen palauttaa sen google driven kautta.

Teaching Without Walls: Life Beyond the Lecture: 8 Tips for Making Beautiful Presentations

Teaching Without Walls: Life Beyond the Lecture: 8 Tips for Making Beautiful Presentations | VirtualLibrarySchool | Scoop.it

by Michele Pecansky-Brock

 

"Humans are visual creatures. Creating and engaging with visual content was more innate to our species than text.  But beyond the "what came first" argument, we must understand the power of images to engage the affective domain of learning.  For a moment, reflect on your childhood memories. What comes to mind? How much of what you remember is imprinted in memory because someone took photographs of those moments?  "Our personal memories, our lives are shaped through images. And as they have become more accessible to educators, understanding how to use them effectively to persuade, impact, empower, and inspire others is an important part of communicating."

These might work well with mature learners, but there is still a role for pedagogy. Another key point is are these really separate concepts or is it more likely they overlap along with pedagogy?
