Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, April 30, 2017 9:44 PM

I understand why teachers ban phones or collect them. I get it. But I also know that banning phones can, in fact, limit student learning. Sure, there is the risk they'll spend more time playing a game or texting their friends. On the other hand, if you make the digital connections sufficiently engaging, they'll be texting or tweeting to tell their friends what a great class it's been and maybe even something about what they learned!

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, June 1, 2017 8:38 PM
Also, students can learn to self-regulate their uses with regular tech breaks. What do they learn if we take their phones away?

UNESCO Launches Five Laws of Media and Information Literacy (MIL) — @joycevalenza NeverEndingSearch

UNESCO Launches Five Laws of Media and Information Literacy (MIL) — @joycevalenza NeverEndingSearch | Flat Connections | Scoop.it
This week UNESCO launched a framework illustrating its Five Laws of Media and Information Literacy (MIL).
This global strategy marries the large, but often separated, disciplines of information literacy and media literacy and creates a common vocabulary for folks in multiple areas of knowledge to engage in conversation. It also positions these critical literacies as a combined set of competencies–knowledge, skills and attitudes–central for living and working in our world today.
