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 | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

Pew Research has just published a study that looks at how teens do research in the digital world. They survey was done "in collaboration with the College Board and the National Writing Project." Below are a couple of the key findings (quoted).

* Virtually all (99%) AP and NWP teachers in this study agree with the notion that 'the internet enables students to access a wider range of resources than would otherwise be available,' and 65% agree that 'the internet makse today's students more self-sufficient.'

* Fewer teachers, but still a majority of this sample (60%), agree with the assertion that today's technologies make it harder for students to find credible sources of information.

what sites students use for research

Pippa Davies @PippaDavies 's curator insight, March 14, 2013 6:38 PM

Nothing new here in the way our students research.  More reason to train our students to take ownership for evaluating what they retrieve on the net.

Learning Through Digital Media » How I Used Wikis to Get My Students to Do Their Readings | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

KEN'S KEY TAKEAWAY

This author does a great job of explaining how he uses Wikis to help students organize their thoughts before and after class meetings.  I have used wikis in the past, but I prefer blogs.  My ideal situation would be if a leader took the best of the blogs and created a wiki.  Maybe next semster?

"We have heard the complaint or issued it ourselves one too many times: “They don’t read!”

 

But can Digital Media provide some simple pedagogical models to promote a more active engagement with that most ancient and passive form of learning: the reading assignment? In this article, I describe the use of Wikis (web pages that people can easily edit as a group) to get students to summarize, ask questions, and comment on a reading before they even meet for class. And while many new—and old—tools can be used to accomplish similar results, what is innovative about this approach is that whereas before reading and writing was something students were supposed to do individually in the isolation of their rooms or the library, now—thanks to Wikis—it is a project they tackle collaboratively as a class. The goals of this critical pedagogy are thus both modest and radical, at the intersection of old and new technologies: to use Digital Media to change the way students interact with texts."

 

Assignment provided and reflection on it's impact on student learning. A really worthwhile read!

This has been on my mind a lot lately. It frustrates me that so many teachers are ready to gather around Wikipedia like a pinata and beat it down. It is still sooooooo young. It can become something really special if we nurture it and encourage wise use. For example, the most powerful part is not the front page but by going under the hood and looking at the discussions about what should be on the front page. Helping our students find those discussions is so important. Ken

Muy interesante la experiencia de un profesor trabajando con sus alumnos en un proyecto de clase sobre Japón.

 

Muy bueno las reflexiones sobre Google vs. People, después de explorar las dos vías: utilizar el buscador y conversar.
