Opinion: Forget “digital natives.” Here’s how kids are really using the Internet

Opinion: Forget “digital natives.” Here’s how kids are really using the Internet | Information Literacy in Academic Libraries | Scoop.it
By challenging the assumption that every child growing up today is a one-size-fits all digital native, we can make sure each of them can find their own way to relate to technology — whether using it to accomplish basic tasks or to create new technologies and worlds. Being aware of our kids’ differences now is what could help keep them from drifting apart.

A much more nuanced view, and one that I appreciate. I have long called so-called digital natives "digital naives" because the majority of kids only know enough about tech to use it to accomplish what they wish to accomplish. Tech does not really come any easier for them. Tech is simply more common to them.

What is the SAMR Model?

Published on Jul 12, 2016
The SAMR Model is a way for teachers to evaluate how they integrate technology into their teaching. Is it an act of substitution? Augmentation? Modification? Or redefinition?

Gamifying education: what is known, what is believed and what remains uncertain

Gamifying education: what is known, what is believed and what remains uncertain | Information Literacy in Academic Libraries | Scoop.it
Gamification of education is a developing approach for increasing learners’ motivation and engagement by incorporating game design elements in educational environments. With the growing popularity of gamification and yet mixed success of its application in educational contexts, the current review is aiming to shed a more realistic light on the research in this field by focusing on empirical evidence rather than on potentialities, beliefs or preferences

NMC Beyond the Horizon :: Digital Literacy

This event explores a pressing challenge for higher education institutions across the world: advancing digital literacy among students and faculty. As technology use is proliferating and becoming more ubiquitous in people’s daily lives, colleges and universities have become more adept at integrating it into every facet of campus life to enhance course design, course materials, and interactions between learners and educators. However, simply knowing how to use the tools does not solve the challenge. Education professionals must be able to tie the use of digital tools to progressive pedagogies and deeper learning outcomes to equip students with 21st century skills that help them flourish in college life and in their careers. Identifying and implementing effective frameworks is paramount, and a number of organizations and institutions are leading the way. Hear from an international panel of experts on their perspectives on digital literacy, the biggest challenges associated with advancing it, and recommendations for developing successful digital literacy initiatives.

How to Engage the Students Who Need It Most: Gamification

How to Engage the Students Who Need It Most: Gamification | Information Literacy in Academic Libraries | Scoop.it
That’s the truth about gamification: it will not make your kids smarter or perform better on tests. Gamification is about increasing motivation and engagement. Once you have a kid’s attention, it is still up to the teacher to deliver a solid, meaningful lesson. Gamification is not a magic bullet, nor does every student need it, but the students who benefit the most from a gamified classroom just so happen to be the ones who most need motivation and engagement.

21st century challenges – Learning {Re}imagined | Information Literacy in Academic Libraries | Scoop.it
It turns out that decontextualised knowledge, stuffed into children’s heads, regurgitated on demand and then forgotten just isn’t that useful in the grand scheme of things. Sure, back in the days of empire it was handy to have identically dressed clerks all over the world who could perform mental arithmetic and communicate in clear written English. The British East India company that ran the Indian sub-continent under corporate rule couldn’t have happened without it. One might say the same today with global corporations like Google, etc or the now stalled globalisation project.
