Digital Natives vs. Digital Immigrants - Ed Tech Diva aka Holly Clark

Digital Natives vs. Digital Immigrants - Ed Tech Diva aka Holly Clark | Nevton | Scoop.it

"Alice Keeler posted the above video about students being digital natives. 

 

Teachers are always afraid that their students will know more than them about the technology. In my opinion, students are more aptly called digital tourists than digital natives. They are exploring this unknown territory at the same time as we are. The only difference is that most students are usually not afraid to push every button. As adults we like directions and are often afraid to traverse unknown territory without a map. My advice? Let go and have fun  - let the journey through technology integration be more about learning and less about control."

How Technology Has Transformed the Classroom (Infographic)

How Technology Has Transformed the Classroom (Infographic) | Nevton | Scoop.it

"Parents are famous for their ability to reminisce about days gone by. It always starts the same way, “Back when I was your age, we used to walk 10 miles to school barefoot—in the snow.” Or, “I remember when school lunch cost a nickel.”

Thanks to the integration of technology, schools, and classrooms in particular, have changed so dramatically in recent years that some parents might not even recognize them. It’s a classic case of old school versus new school."

This infographic looks at how the integration of technology into schools has made major changes. Learn how many parents used software in school compared to their teenage students; how collaboration has changed; if technology is important to student success (parents view) and much more. If you have an upcoming Open House this might be an infographic that would elicit comments from parents.

Technology changes rapidly and many want to jump on the bandwagon quickly, but before we bring new technology into our classroom we need to learn to use it and determine if it will help move students to a new level. One of my favorite saying is that technology should not be used simply to use technology, but to reinforce, enhance and extend the curriculum. This post provides ten excellent points that we should consider before bringing in the next cool tool that we discover. Four are listed below.

* Identify and verify

* Do some real research

* Write a rationale for use

* Build norms and expectations for use

What I like about this idea is the centrality of learning as opposed to the centrality of the device. We've discovered that sharing a device have far-reaching and positive possibilities for networking, interaction, teamwork and collaboration in the formal learning environment. OLPC is an example of a notion that goes the other way - individualism, not to mention, the complexities when trying to enable young learners to focus.

30 Innovative Ways To Use Google In Education

30 Innovative Ways To Use Google In Education | Nevton | Scoop.it

"As the search engine that’s become its own verb, Google’s success is difficult to frame.

One of the most telling examples of their gravity in search is how few legitimate competitors they have. (Some would say they have none.)"

Beth Dichter's curator insight, September 16, 2013 10:13 PM

When you ask students what search engine they use the answer tends to be Google...and their tendency is to look at the first four or five results (this is from my experience with students).

This post provides a look at "innovative ways to use Google search in the classroom...[with] the intended outcome [to be] the students sustained ability to self-direct and manage the search process as the digital universe continues to evolve."

What are some of the ideas? Read below and then click through to the post to learn of others.

* Locate 3 sources of information that support an idea, and rank them in terms of their credibility.

* Have students record immediate but brief think-alouds for why they choose to click on certain search results while skipping others.

* Defend or critique the process of Googleing entire questions (versus simply Googleing key words and phrases).

Consider picking a number of these ideas and using them with students in your class this year...and share with other teachers in your school. It is not only students whom need to upgrade their search skills.

What might you learn about your students/learners if you were to ask your students to answer these questions? TeachThought suggests that you might use these questions in a number of ways:

* Jigsaw

* Choice (as in let the students choose the questions they answer)

* Personalize (this may work well if you know your students and can ask them to answer questions that would relate to them)

* Use them as a writing prompt

* Team building games

* Big Picture

* Wing it

How interactive technology is transforming storytelling

How interactive technology is transforming storytelling | Nevton | Scoop.it

Three things really fascinate me about the new digital writing toolkit: the possibility of increased immersion in a story, the ability to represent choice, and the way the audience can influence the story. I'll take them one by one.

Chad Clark's curator insight, July 23, 2013 2:41 PM

A “good tale well told” transcends the medium by which it is relayed.  Credit is due Naomi Alderman for saying as much, or rather writing as much in this brief but value-packed article.  (At one point she confesses to being an instructor of creative writing as well as digital media; her article resonates with familiarity of those two areas of expertise.)  For additional reading re: Immersion, I recommend Frank Rose’s The Art of Immersion.   As to “representing choice” – am I the only avid reader who as a kid tried to get into the Choose Your Own Adventure books but ultimately preferred my bound page to be more of “Calvinoesque”?  (And for the record, I still hate seeing the following words in a periodical: to continue reading, turn to page…) 

 

But with digital media the other shoe has fallen. 

 

In conclusion Alderman speaks to audience participation. I can’t help but think of The Rocky Horror Picture Show whenever I see those two words – audience and participation – together, but alas, I wish I could think Star Wars, Episode One.  You see just last night I watched a 12 minute video simply titled “What If Star Wars: Episode I" Was Good?” This video is one man’s take on how to make EpiOne better, er, um, good even.  Now I’m a huge Star Wars fan, having seen Episode IV: A New Hope when I was only 5.  I’m also a digital media guy myself – so says the University of Washington and after George Lucas destroyed my childhood with Episodes I, II, and III, one other digital media guy takes 12 minutes and tells a story that, well, that if made into a movie wouldn’t have bit the big dead Chihuahua. (Come on, EpiOne was really bad.) 

 

But with the world of Star Wars fans (nerds?) out there, don’t you think George, er, Mr. Lucas, could have made a better film if he’d have listened?  I think so – and so even with all the beautiful digital effects, it all comes down to a good tale well told and in this case, that needed audience participation.   

Jess Gronholm's curator insight, July 26, 2013 3:23 PM

This is a great article about the future of storytelling. I love this point. "Art and science (or technology) are often imagined to be totally separate – but this is not, and never has been, true."

Mark Rowlands - Is there a right to believe? (read of the day)

Mark Rowlands - Is there a right to believe? (read of the day) | Nevton | Scoop.it
You are entitled to believe what you will, but your beliefs must to be subject to criticism and scrutiny just like mine

-

Here is a true story. A young philosophy lecturer — let us call him Shane — is charged with the task of introducing young minds to the wonders of philosophy. His course, a standard Introduction to Philosophy, contains a section on the philosophy of religion: the usual arguments-for-and-against-the-existence-of-God stuff. One of Shane’s students complains to Shane’s Dean that his cherished religious beliefs are being attacked. ‘I have a right to my beliefs,’ the student claims. Shane’s repeated interrogations of those beliefs amounts to an attack on this right to believe. Shane’s institution is not a particularly enlightened one. The Dean concurs with the student, and instructs Shane to desist in teaching philosophy of religion.

But what exactly does it mean to claim ‘a right to my beliefs’? It often comes up in a religious context, but can arise in others too. Shane could just as easily be teaching Marxist theory to a laissez-faire capitalist student, or imparting evidence for global warming to a global warming sceptic. Whatever the context, the claim of a right to one’s beliefs is a curious one. We might distinguish two different interpretations of this claim. First, there is the evidential one. You have an evidential right to your belief if you can provide appropriate evidence in support of it. I have, in this sense, no right to believe that the moon is made of green cheese because my belief is lacking in any supporting evidence.
