– Stories for teaching English!

– Stories for teaching English! | english teaching | Scoop.it

We search for stories and we are lucky to find them. More often than not, they find us!

These stories often need a loving touch before they are ready to use for teaching, training or presentation purposes (in our case, mainly teaching and mainly English as a foreign language). So we give them an editing cuddle. They may be half-baked lessons but the stories themselves are ready to reach you.

New Media Literacy: What Students Need to Know About Fake News

New Media Literacy: What Students Need to Know About Fake News | english teaching | Scoop.it
Fake news, unreliable websites, viral posts—you would think students who have grown up with the internet would easily navigate it all, but according to a study done by Stanford researchers, that couldn’t be further from the truth.

Researchers describe the results of the study done on middle school, high school and college students across the country as “bleak.” Students were asked to judge advertisements, social media, video and photographic evidence, news reports and websites. Though researchers thought they were giving students simple tasks, they say that “in every case and at every level, we were taken aback by students’ lack of preparation.”

As if that weren’t bad enough, researchers go on to say, “At present, we worry that democracy is threatened by the ease at which disinformation about civic issues is allowed to spread and flourish.”

So what can educators do about the spread of fake news and our students’ inability to recognize when they have been fooled? Lesson plans that explicitly address the new media literacy and task students to be responsible consumers and disseminators of news are a good place to start.

Here are eight things that students need to know about fake news and the new media literacy:

#Fake #News, #Alternative #Facts and #Librarians As Dedicated Defenders of #Truth @jenniferlagarde

#Fake #News, #Alternative #Facts and #Librarians As Dedicated Defenders of #Truth @jenniferlagarde | english teaching | Scoop.it

"Let's be clear, there's no such thing as "alternative facts."

The same fact can be used by different people to support alternative opinions, but the facts don't change. Different people can use the same facts to emphasize alternative ideas or to inform different theories, but the facts remain the same. Facts are non-partisan. Facts alone are neutral. It's what we do with them that becomes controversial.

That said, there's a not so old saying that goes "we are drowning in information, but starving for knowledge." (Note: the fact that this saying is attributed to at least 5 different people when I do a quick search for the author is an irony that has not escaped me, but I digress). These days, getting answers to your questions is just about the easiest thing in the world. Getting the right answer is more challenging. Librarians (and Neil Gaiman) have known this for years, but one thing is certain, in the information age, discerning fact from fiction is THE "21st century skill."

What is a Global Digital Citizen and Why Does the World Need Them? | english teaching | Scoop.it
The Global Digital Citizen understands that we can govern technology for the benefit of both ourselves and others. It is a citizen that views the world as an interconnected community. Additionally, they realize we simultaneously share technological and human experiences regardless of culture, status, or political/religious beliefs.

So we define the best assets of the Global Digital Citizen using 5 tenets.

A Literacy-Based Strategy to Help Teachers Integrate Science Skills

A Literacy-Based Strategy to Help Teachers Integrate Science Skills | english teaching | Scoop.it
Many elementary school teachers love to teach reading and writing, but are less comfortable with science and math. It’s not a hard and fast truth, of course, but learning to read is a big focus of the early school years, so it makes sense that teachers who gravitate toward elementary school like teaching literacy. But it’s also important to expose kids to science early and get them excited about the practices that define scientific inquiry. And literature may be the perfect starting point. Stories are full of tension, conflict and dilemmas that make wonderful departure points for engineering projects that weave subjects together.

The Need for Media Literacy in the Age of ‘Fake News’

The Need for Media Literacy in the Age of ‘Fake News’ | english teaching | Scoop.it
In an article about the Stanford study, the Wall Street Journal talks to parents and educators who have their kids use search engines that censor websites they deem inappropriate, and those who bar their children from using social media to protect them from false information. But are those methods sustainable as kids get older? Some educators and journalists say they don’t get to the root of the issue.

“The fake news problem we’re facing isn’t just about articles gaining traffic from Facebook timelines or Google search results,” writes online journalist Kyle Chayka at the Verge. “It’s also an issue of news literacy—a reader’s ability to discern credible news.”

Digital literacy education can equip young people with the tools they need to better navigate online resources and take advantage of the internet as a tool for learning.
