Study Proves Why We Need Digital Literacy Education

Study Proves Why We Need Digital Literacy Education | Reading and Literacy iPad Apps | Scoop.it
What Mueller and Oppenheimer discovered in their experiments is that laptop use correlates strongly with taking verbatim notes, and, as was already known, verbatim note-taking is well-known to be less effective than note-taking that synthesizes and summarizes content.

Still not sure I agree with these conclusions.

Elizabeth Dalton's curator insight, August 16, 2014 7:58 AM

Interesting research - but we need to be careful about the conclusions that are drawn from it.  Most important, in my view, is the point that while we do need to learn how to operate digital tools, we cannot assume that we should stop there - we also need to learn how and where they fit to support or facilitate learning.  This article shows that information literacy is just as important as digital literacy - librarians have ALWAYS known this - and we need to pay attention to this point!

iPad App mem:o Is A Simple Data Visualization Tool For Design Lovers

iPad App mem:o Is A Simple Data Visualization Tool For Design Lovers | Reading and Literacy iPad Apps | Scoop.it

Technology makes it easy to turn the minutiae of our daily lives into useful data sets, but sometimes it feels bleak seeing every experience or memory broken down into pie charts and bar graphs. 

mem:o is a unique visualization tool that takes life-logging beyond spreadsheets by transforming data into striking images influenced by Dutch graphic design.

The app’s look was inspired by the bold shapes and playful colors of graphic design influenced by Werkplaats Typografie (Typography Workshop) and uses a font called Brown that was created by Swiss designer Aurèle Sack to be especially legible. But mem:o isn’t targeted at design nerds only. The app stands apart because of its streamlined functionality and the easy-to-understand charts it creates.
