Critical Digital Pedagogy: a Definition - Hybrid Pedagogy

Critical Digital Pedagogy: a Definition - Hybrid Pedagogy | web learning | Scoop.it
What is Critical Pedagogy?
Critical Pedagogy is an approach to teaching and learning predicated on fostering agency and empowering learners (implicitly and explicitly critiquing oppressive power structures). The word “critical” in Critical Pedagogy functions in several registers:

Critical, as in mission-critical, essential;
Critical, as in literary criticism and critique, providing definitions and interpretation;
Critical, as in reflective and nuanced thinking about a subject;
Critical, as in criticizing institutional, corporate, or societal impediments to learning;
Critical Pedagogy, as a disciplinary approach, which inflects (and is inflected by) each of these other meanings.

The Battle for Bandwidth [Infographic]

The Battle for Bandwidth [Infographic] | web learning | Scoop.it
If you are a college student, there’s a high chance that you bring at least one of these three devices to class with you: a laptop, a smartphone or a tablet. It doesn’t matter which type of mobile device you are accessing online materials with; it’s what you are using it for that is contributing to the chokehold of available bandwidth, particularly on campus where understandably students make up the largest population. But it’s not really their fault; we are all suckers for bandwidth-hungry materials such as videos, music, high-resolution images, movie files and live streams.

Why you should always 'Like' your own Facebook posts

Why you should always 'Like' your own Facebook posts | web learning | Scoop.it
In order to compensate for not showing your posts in some of your friends’ news feeds, Facebook added the ticker – a box in the right-hand column that lists the activities of your friends as they happen. This is where “Liking” your own posts comes into play. When you “Like” a post, that action is noted in your friends’ ticker boxes, giving them a chance to at least be made aware that you have posted something even if it doesn’t show up in their news feeds.
So the next time you see one of your friends “Like” their own post, they probably aren’t giving themselves a pat on the back. Instead, they’re giving you an opportunity to check out a post that might never make it into your news feed. I recommend that you “Like” your own posts as well!
