50 Activities To Promote Digital Media Literacy In Students

50 Activities To Promote Digital Media Literacy In Students | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

Digital media is quickly replacing traditional media forms as those most accessible to most 21st century learners. The impact of this change is extraordinarily broad, but for now we’ll narrow it down to changes in how learners respond to the media they consume.

The most fundamental pattern of formal academia is to read something and then write about it. Sometimes this writing comes in the form of responding to questions, while other time it’s in the form of an essay. And sometimes the reading is watching, playing with, or otherwise interacting with a digital media. So I thought it might make sense to compile a list of “things” learners can do as the result of “consuming” a digital media.

Middle School Leadership Lesson: I DARE YOU TO FAIL!

Middle School Leadership Lesson: I DARE YOU TO FAIL! | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

Middle School Leadership Lesson:

 

...this student would shy away from the ball and would not attempt to make any type of rebound when he was near it.

 

The coach asked the young player why he was afraid of the ball.

 

The boy looked at the coach and simply stated:

 

“Coach, I am not afraid of the ball, I just don’t want to mess up.”

The coach’s response was even more enlightening than the boy’s.

 

The coach responded by telling the 7th grader this:

“…you will never truly know what you are capable of achieving because you’re not putting yourself out there. If you never try, you will never learn or grow your craft.  I’d much rather you try and make a mistake that teaches you, than for you to not try at all and never learn anything or ever improve your playing skills.

 

When you don’t try at all, you are not only selling yourself short, you are affecting your entire team, who is depending on your efforts to drive our team towards the goal of winning.  You are either all in, or let me know so we can find a player who is.”
