Blogging for Dummies (and the time constrained)

Blogging for Dummies (and the time constrained) | School Libraries and Information Literacy | Scoop.it
When you hear the word blogger, what image comes to mind?  A sacred group of people anointed by the All Mighty with special powers who unleash their acerbic editorial tongue lashing from 40-story skyscrapers in major cities around the world?

Guillaume Decugis's curator insight, November 14, 2013 10:12 PM

When we launched the private beta of Scoop.it, TheNextWeb's Martin Bryant called it "blogging without blogging". I liked the term and made included it in my Twitter bio.


Of course blogging and curating content are different things and I won't go into a debate of whether one is better than the other. However, Andrew makes a good point on our blog explaining why the time constrained who have expertise might find it easier to curate content than blogging. This was our starting point for creating Scoop.it: we had things to say but not the time to write them. We also saw a lot of bad blogging that was just paraphrasing existing content under a false pretence of creation. And we saw good curators getting traction too and bringing a lot of value.

Curation is the new creation...and it works.

Tom Evans's curator insight, November 15, 2013 4:31 PM

Curation though should be done with creation in mind - joining dots & spotting patterns is the name of the game

What makes new literacies new?

Colin Lankshear and Michele Knobel (2012)

"It is too easy to make light of ‘new literacies’ by saying things like: “Well, there are always newer ones coming along”. Such remarks suggest new literacies have a similar kind of life trajectory to an automobile: new in 2009, semi-new in 2010, and old hat by 2011. Against this kind of “that’s so yesterday” perspective, we suggest in this article that ‘new literacies’ are best understood in terms of an historical period of social, cultural, institutional, economic, and intellectual change that is likely to span many decades – some of which are already behind us."

After browsing through a couple of the k-12 Horizon reports, I commend the New Media Consortium for looking to the future to see where elearning has the potential to go, as well as showing us what is possible by providing examples of various tools currently in use.

Annie R's comment, September 3, 2013 10:55 PM
i think that the mobile learning section (#2) was very interesting for me. as a student, tablets are very easy and a wonderful way to learn, but we still should be exposed to things like textbooks, instruments, and a pencil. Many children now have been completely consumed in their electronics, I am guilty of complaining when i have to put my iPad down.
John Williams's comment, September 4, 2013 3:54 PM
Annie, I couldn't agree with you more unfortunately I do not see this trend reversing. They are no longer teaching penmanship in school it will soon be a lost are and the text book is losing way to the e-book it is already happening. It is cheaper.(ooppps) cost effective. It is doing a disservice to our youth. I went to an old catholic school in addition to being taught cursive we were taught script also, and a love of books is taught at an early age. Technology is a great tool, but it is just that a tool, it wears out it changes the written word is always the same, The language may change depending on the country but it is the same it does not upgrade a classic is still a classic. A Commador 64 is obsolete, by todays standards.

"Transmedia Play: Literacy Across Media" by Meryl Alper & Rebecca Herr-Stephenson | Digital Commons

Transmedia play is a new way to understand how children develop critical media literacy and new media literacies through their interactions with contemporary media that links stories and structures across platforms.

 

This essay highlights five characteristics of transmedia play that make it particularly useful for learning: resourcefulness, sociality, mobility, accessibility, and replayability, and explains how each characteristic relates to digital and media literacy education.
