HI Leigh.
Thank you very much for the rescoop. I really like your focused topic. On my site, you may find some scoops of interest by searching for a tag of
21st Century Literacy Skills" or "DML" I am hoping to start a class called Digital Media Literacy (DML), so I started tagging some scoops for that class.

Teaching startegies: The need for teaching media literacy in education | Q&A | My 21st Century Literacy Topic | Scoop.it

Media literacy is about more than how to use technology to acquire information. There are several definitions of media literacy but most concern the ability to employ critical thinking skills to evaluate information found online

If media literacy (and to be media literate) is the embodiment of the skills necessary to be a literate person in the Information Age, can collaboration be separated from media literacy education? Is it possible to be media literate in isolation?

Extremely good...!!
Janet Vasil's curator insight, June 17, 2015 1:07 PM

Fun informative story about the basics of CODE. A recent newspaper article in my area noted a new school for gifted students would start teaching code in Kindergarten! Back in the day, my gifted program taught me French starting in 4th grade. Code is apparently an essential "language" of the 21st Century.

Convinced of the need to be a conent curator in my school - looking for the best way to start this, how to implement a manageable plan and ways to increase my content curation competency.

 

Lucy Wyatt's curator insight, October 7, 2013 12:44 PM

With students accessing different kinds of material and the same material in different ways, the OPAC and vertical file may not be the best way to lead your students to the best content.  This article shows differing ways of attacking the problem.

 

Brooke Roberson Buxton's curator insight, April 22, 2017 12:12 PM

Easy article that introduces several key curation tools for use in the school library.
