Goodbye Essay, Hello Podcast | Dialogue

Goodbye Essay, Hello Podcast | Dialogue | English Language E-Courses | Scoop.it

One of the greatest conflicts between new and old literacies is many educators’ continuing belief that students’ analytical skills are not properly developed through the use of new media. There is some justification for this: Many student-created new media works are simplistic mishmashes of audio and video clips with no thesis or rationale. New media is used more as a toy than as an educational tool. It is no wonder that many teachers, uncomfortable with new media to begin with, see it as harming student literacy.

A way to teach essay writing is to teach podcasting! Technology and essay writing together?! Yes!

Pushpa Kunasegaran's curator insight, June 18, 2013 8:21 PM

I do support this concept of new literacies.

Katja Kranjec's curator insight, October 27, 2013 3:12 AM

I really like this quote: "However, today’s students find print to be a clumsy way to access information. Print is no longer the easiest way to convey information in an expanding world of readily accessible digital audio and video resources."

The main reason most parents go to libraries is to get books for their kids. So what becomes of the magic of being surrounded by books when e-readers become more prevalent?

15 Lesson Plans For Making Students Better Online Researchers - Edudemic | English Language E-Courses | Scoop.it

Google is usually one of the first places students turn to when tasked with an assignment. Whether it’s for research, real-time results, or just a little digital exploration … it’s important they know how to properly Google. Lucky for teachers (and students, of course), Google has a handy set of lesson plans that are just waiting to be unleashed upon the leaders of tomorrow.

What do you feel are the key digital literacy skills that 21st century learners need?

What do you feel are the key digital literacy skills that 21st century learners need? | English Language E-Courses | Scoop.it

Digital literacy has become one of the major issues facing educators in this early part of the 21st century. The need to develop students and teachers digital literacies has become increasingly accepted as fact and yet most teachers' and students' understanding of what exactly constitutes a digital literacy still seems to remain quite vague. Even more vague seems to be teachers' understanding of how precisely we go about developing those literacies.

That's where professional development plays a major role. Management and even instructors need to seek sources that offer these skills. Is it time consuming? Yes! I also agree that the "digital divide" and computer literacy need to be considered when delivering learning content to students.

The exposure to this 'social quizzing' app was alone worth the read.  You won't be surprised to find out what is the #1 response, and the final response is unintentionally funny to me - it received 0 votes.

Gamification to encourage learner autonomy

Gamification to encourage learner autonomy | English Language E-Courses | Scoop.it

HabitRPG is a time and task management tool which overlays motivational elements of computer games onto managing time and tasks.

The two major motivational elements are health points, which can be used up and coins which can be earned by doing daily tasks, following good habits and doing jobs from your 'Todos' list. These coins can then used to buy rewards.
