Exploiting Infographics for Digital Literacy & Critical Thinking

Exploiting Infographics for Digital Literacy & Critical Thinking | Digital Writing | Scoop.it

This ebook was designed with English language teachers in mind but should have some value for any teacher who is interested in developing their students’ digital literacy and critical thinking skills.


The book contains a wide range of suggested activities for both the creation and exploitation of infographics in the classroom.
It also helps teachers with tips and advice on how to plan and create infographics and suggestions for which tools to use to produce different types of infographic.

Robin Good's curator insight, November 29, 2013 1:41 PM



Barley for Wordpress is a plugin that allows you to edit, modify and write new content directly on your article pages, and not via the typical backend posting interface.


With Barley you can edit any existing web page on your site by simply clicking where you want to edit and by typing. 


My comment: Fantastic tool for those who hate having to deal with tech side of web publishing and for those web designers who have such clients. Barley is also a full design and publishing platform.


Price: $12/year/site

Preparing Teachers to Teach Writing Using Technology

Technology is changing not only how people write, but also how they learn to write. These profound changes require teachers to reconsider their pedagogical practices in the teaching of writing. This books shares instructional approaches from experienced teacher educators in the areas of writing, teacher education, and technology.

Not research per se, but an e-book aimed at training teachers. Includes units on using apps and tools and fpcsing in general on the teaching of writing in the so-called 'digital age'.

Create eBooks in Multiple Formats Straight from your WordPress: PressBooks

Create eBooks in Multiple Formats Straight from your WordPress: PressBooks | Digital Writing | Scoop.it

Robin Good: PressBooks is a new book publishing platform, built on WordPress, that makes it easy to collaborate with an editorial team, and to generate clean, well-formatted books in multiple outputs: .epub, Kindle, print-ready PDF, InDesign-ready XML, and of course HTML.

 

"PressBooks is a digital-first book publishing tool built on WordPress that integrates a set of rules for encoding, transporting and storing documents in machine-readable formats, with emphasis on simplicity, usability and accessibility, particularly over the Internet.

 

PressBooks also makes a web version of all books — which can be private (for production only), or public (free or behind a paywall).

 

PressBooks, a Montreal-based start-up, is the brainchild of Hugh McGuire, a writer and web-developer and a co-founder of Book Oven, a cloud-based publishing tool that allows people to collaborate in writing, editing and proofreading a book, all through online tools.

 

He’s also the founder of LibriVox.org, an all-volunteer project whose aim is to make all books in the public domain available, for free, in audio format on the internet.

 

It was once hailed as “perhaps the most interesting collaborative cultural project this side of Wikipedia.”

 

* Authors and Very Small Publishers can use PressBooks for free – we make great ebooks and typeset print books.

 

* Big and Small Publishers can use PressBooks as a lightweight, but extremely powerful (XML) workflow tool to output ebooks and typeset print books, for free.

 

The first book published using the PressBooks platform is Book: A Futurist’s Manifesto, published by O’Reilly Media.

 

"Along with O’Reilly Media, another big-name player seems sold on the project. Harvard Business Review Press has produced and published an ebook using PressBooks."

Redefining the Writing Process with iPads

Redefining the Writing Process with iPads | Digital Writing | Scoop.it

With iPads, once we begin thinking beyond the confines of a page, anything is possible. Consider the video below created several years ago by two of my students. First they wrote plot summaries. Then they wrote character sketches. From there, they crafted paragraphs about theme, tying the visual and auditory elements of their videos back to the books. Finally, they created storyboards and bibliographies before producing and publishing their final product.

Digital Reading Skills | Delta Publishing - English Language Teaching | Digital Writing | Scoop.it

We take it for granted as English language teachers that we need to develop our students’ reading skills, but in most cases the nearest our students get to reading online is a printed version of a web page pre selected by their teacher. At best they may actually get to see a pre selected page on the screen of a computer, but is this enough to really develop their digital literacies?

An article Nik Peachey wrote in 2010, but which is still relevant today (perhaps more than ever) now that the facilities certainly do exist in many places to push students (and teachers) to do more to develop digital reading skills.
