Knowing the Difference Between Digital Skills and Digital Literacies, and Teaching Both

Knowing the Difference Between Digital Skills and Digital Literacies, and Teaching Both | MOOCs | Scoop.it

Maha Bali writes: "We often hear people talk about the importance of digital knowledge for 21st-century learners. Unfortunately, many focus on skills rather than literacies. Digital skills focus on what and how. Digital literacy focuses on why, when, who, and for whom."

Cristin Kennedy's curator insight, March 26, 2016 12:07 PM

Maha Bali's article is worth sharing widely with anyone who needs to be nudged ever so gently into the 21st century of education. (We're 16% through it, folks!) Bali addresses the need to teach about digital skills and literacy in an authentic context, not a vacuum, and gives many concrete examples for doing that. 

 

I recently did a lesson on blogging with a 6th grade class. We looked at several tween and teen blogs, then reviewed good digital citizenship practices emphasizing student safety and copyright. Finally, each student created a blog on Blogger. Will they make mistakes? Probably. (When I specifically told them to keep it school appropriate, with nothing in the blog they wouldn't be allowed to do at school, and one student immediately started searching for "Call of Duty 3" images!) Will we all learn something from this? Absolutely.

Online Classes Fuel a Campus Debate - NYTimes.com

Online Classes Fuel a Campus Debate - NYTimes.com | MOOCs | Scoop.it

Now a new discussion has begun about whether universities should collaborate to develop and share their courses and technology, rather than working with outside providers. This week, the Committee on Institutional Cooperation, a group of provosts from Big 10 universities, issued a position paper saying that higher education must take advantage of new education technology — but perhaps on its own. On a small scale, C.I.C. members’ CourseShare program already does that, with members sharing classes in less commonly taught languages.

António Maneira's curator insight, June 18, 2013 5:26 AM

That's it!

There is no strong apparent reason for MOOCs to be less valid then face-to-face courses.

It is an e-learning model for great numbers that in most cases attracts lots of people which is great to researchers as it increase significance of quantitative research studies.

The recent backlash against MOOCs has tended to romanticize an ideal of public higher education. Yet, education has always been tied up with systems of domination, and MOOCs present an opportunity to reveal the contradictions of higher education—to expose the emperor’s dirty secrets.

Víctor Xepiti Eme's curator insight, August 9, 2016 7:04 PM

Open access can be more than making research available to read, but also allowing others to re-use that research. For example, allowing the content to be analysed using text mining1 or reused for commercial purposes. Research data is also increasingly made available openly.

Publicity for Blackboards MOOC initiative:

 

"Blackboard Inc. today announced that 15 more higher education institutions have elected to run massive open online courses ("MOOCs") on the company's free, flexible teaching and learning platform, marking a significant expansion in the number of schools that have partnered with Blackboard for MOOCs.

 

The majority of MOOCs will run this summer and fall and will be free of charge. Two of the institutions -- Edge Hill University and Syracuse University's School of Information Studies -- will offer credit to participating students."

Retention and Intention in Massive Open Online Courses: In Depth (EDUCAUSE Review) | EDUCAUSE.edu | MOOCs | Scoop.it

We have argued that discussions of retention within MOOCs must always be considered in the context of student intent in order to have real meaning. At an even higher level, however, one might ask the question of whether retention is even the right metric by which to measure success in a MOOC.
