Can a New Approach to Information Literacy Reduce Digital Polarization? | EdSurge News

Can a New Approach to Information Literacy Reduce Digital Polarization? | EdSurge News | Instructional Technology | Scoop.it

The internet doesn’t come with an instruction manual, but it should—to give users the skills to separate truth from falsehood so they can distinguish between propaganda and the indisputable and confirmable. And colleges should be the place leading students through this reference book.

That’s the argument of Michael Caulfield, director of blended and networked learning at Washington State University Vancouver, and it isn’t just some “hot take” designed to be provocative. He actually wrote the manual. And he has already convinced more than a dozen colleges to adopt it (and more than 100 college libraries to prominently link to it). Recently, he’s started research in an effort to prove that it works (and can help preserve American democracy).

Caulfield’s instruction manual—called Web Literacy for Student Fact-Checkers—explains how to avoid ending up down in these infotraps. It describes what it terms Four Moves and a Habit for evaluating any online article by going upstream to track claims or quotes to their original sources. The actual site of the Washington football team had no mention of this monumental mascot change, so I could have disproven the article in a couple of seconds.

Hyperdocs: Create Interactive Google Docs

Hyperdocs: Create Interactive Google Docs | Instructional Technology | Scoop.it
HyperDocs are an interactive Google Doc and provide teachers with a way of presenting information to students in a fun and engaging way. They replace the standard, passive worksheet model of instruction and increase student agency. HyperDocs are much more than Google Docs that contain hyperlinks. They are carefully crafted activities that includes all of the components of the lesson in one central location.

Click here to view an example of a HyperDoc. This particular lesson takes students on a journey around the United States. This lesson contains a variety of multimedia resources that students can view in an order they wish, select the places they find interesting, and work at their own pace. This activity concludes with students using the information they have collected to create a product. In this example, students are asked to create a slide presentation and a video. HyperDocs allow teachers to design visually engaging activities that promote curiosity, creativity, collaboration, and reflection.

How effectively you utilise your time each day, will determine how little or how much progress you make, towards achieving your overall business goals. When you spend a lot of time online, your day can disappear in the blink of an eye, and you can end the day no closer to achieving your major goals.

Study: Snapchat and Instagram are the worst for young people

Study: Snapchat and Instagram are the worst for young people | Instructional Technology | Scoop.it

A new study lends credence to what you’ve probably always suspected: social media is having a pretty negative effect on teenagers — Instagram and Snapchat being the worst culprits. The study, published today and called “Status of Mind,” was conducted by researchers for the Royal Society for Public Health in the UK. The researchers surveyed 1,479 British youths ages 14-24, asking them how they felt the different social media networks effected their mental health. They took in several factors such as body image, sleep deprivation, bullying, and self-identity.

 

The results suggest the two worst social media networks for kids are Instagram and Snapchat, as they had terrible scores for body image, bullying, and anxiety. Twitter and Facebook weren’t much better, though. YouTube was the only one that apparently inspired more positive feelings than negative ones.

Oskar Almazan's curator insight, November 1, 2017 8:13 AM
En marketing, a great image is often a key component of the message. Constant need for pictures can dig deep into your pocket when using stock photography. If you want a particular image, then it makes sense to pay for the stock images as it will be a lot cheaper than to hire a photographer. What to do when you need images all the time, but their marketing lifespan can be measured only in days, maybe hours? Images for Facebook posts, email newsletters, individual slides in presentations that you use only once… Paying 10 or 20 dollars per image for these adds up. So where do you get free images? I have collected a bunch of sites that give you exactly that… free images for commercial use.

Open educational resources (OER) are found in the public domain and can be used for free for teaching, learning, research, and other educational purposes. These materials can be retained, reused, revised, remixed, and redistributed. These “5R permissions” of OER allow you to not only access the materials and resources free of charge, but also to make them even better. Sounds good, right?

A Good App and A Good Site for Learning About Endangered Animals

A Good App and A Good Site for Learning About Endangered Animals | Instructional Technology | Scoop.it
WWF Together is a beautiful iPad app and Android app that features interactive stories about endangered animals around the world. Each of the interactive stories includes beautiful images and videos, facts about the animals and their habitats, and the threats to each of the animals. Some of the animals currently featured in the app are pandas, marine turtles, elephants, tigers, polar bears, bison, whales, gorillas, rhinos, and snow leopards.

In Pieces is a neat site that features the stories of 30 endangered animals around the world. Visit the site and you will be greeted by a little animation that comes together to form the shape of a whale. After the animation plays click through to see the stories of the 30 animals featured in the site. Each animal's story is told with text, images, and video. You'll learn about the threats to each animal, its native habit, and efforts to save each animal.

Applications for Education
After learning about the animals in the site and apps I might have students conduct their own research about endangered animals then put together visual reports about those animals. I would consider having students use Pic-Collage and Thinglink to make their own interactive displays about endangered animals. Tutorials for that process can be found here.
