Digital Literacy in Practice: Primary and Secondary Education - 4 views

  •  
    A range of research reports suggest that digital literacy should be a key part of curricular developments in both primary and secondary schools. Digital literacy is about far more than functional ICT skills: it requires support for children to access, create and communicate using ICT, as well as to be evaluative and critical about the influences and impacts of new media.

21st Century Educators Don't Say "Hand It In." They say, "Publish It!" - 2 views

  • The authentic publication of student work should be a part of EVERY SINGLE UNIT OF STUDY. If an educator can’t figure out a way to help students publish anything in a unit of study they need to either 1) Rethink the unit or 2) Rethink the assessment.
  •  
    If the first decade of the 21st century was about data driven instruction and assessment, can we make the next decade about realizing potential of the student behind the data and publishing to authentic audience as part of student's school lives?

Why Schools Should Learn To Use Online Services Like Facebook & YouTube Rather Than Ban... - 2 views

  •  
    It's no secret that we live in a world of moral panics -- where new technologies are feared by those who don't understand them, often leading to regulations that block their potential. For years now, a number of politicians have sought laws to ban social networks in schools, assuming that they are either bad or simply inappropriate for schools.

The Networked Student [video] - 3 views

  •  
    The Networked Student was inspired by CCK08, a Connectivism course offered by George Siemens and Stephen Downes during fall 2008. It depicts an actual project completed by Wendy Drexler's high school students. The Networked Student concept map was inspired by Alec Couros' Networked Teacher. I hope that teachers will use it to help their colleagues, parents, and students understand networked learning in the 21st century.

Understanding Digital Citizenship - 4 views

  • it seems that digital citizenship is about using technology appropriately, and not misusing or abusing technology.
  • The item I am most interested in is the “digital rights and responsibilities”. Up until now, most of what I have seen related to digital citizenship relates only to safety, literacy and etiquette and the strategies we use in teaching these to children.
  • A fully literate citizen is at once critically self-reflexive and critically reflexive of his/her collective and position within it.
  • ...1 more annotation...
  • I can say that digital citizenship can be extended to include; 1) A responsibility to critical interpret our place in the collective, especially in terms of power, authority, influence and position, and 2) An obligation toward bettering our (digital) communities through critical, ethical and moral decision-making.

    Brilliant and meaty post from Alex Couros about what "digital citizenship" encompasses and really means for pedagogy.

    Media literacy is the process of accessing, analyzing, evaluating and creating messages in a wide variety of forms. It uses an inquiry-based instructional model that encourages people to ask questions about what they watch, see and read. Media literacy aims to enable people to be skillful creators and producers of media messages, both to facilitate an understanding as to the strengths and limitations of each medium, as well as to create independent media.

Digital Literacy: Skills for the 21st Century - 3 views

  •  
    Teachers wishing to foster digital literacy in their classrooms and states wishing to demonstrate it in their students face a common challenge: no comprehensive, established approach exists to guide the teaching, learning, and assessment of specific digital literacy skills. To begin addressing this challenge, we have developed this website, which was part of a two-year project funded by The Atlantic Philanthropies. The site articulates the skills comprising digital literacy with the goal of helping schools and districts implement a new approach to digital literacy teaching.

ComicLife in Education - 1 views

  •  
    Technology not only changes how we write, but it also changes what writing is. Education will need to re-evaluate which writing skills teachers should pass to their students. Digital graphic writing is one genre students need to be fluent. Comic Life is the "word processor" of digital graphic writing.
