Lesson Plan: Life Online - 0 views

  •  
    Digital technology has had a tremendous impact on our lives. Although the Internet and cell phones have been in wide use for only a couple of decades, most of us can hardly remember a time before they existed or imagine how we would function without them. How have the accessibility of these technologies, and the ease with which we are now able to share information, changed the way we communicate? And how can young people in particular better deal with the issues that might arise from being able to communicate so quickly and easily with so many people? This activity will help students recognize and address these issues. Note: Registration for this site may be required, but it's simple and easy.

New Media Literacies Community Site - 0 views

  • Our first Teachers' Strategy Guide: Reading in a Participatory Culture, offers strategies for integrating the tools, approaches, and methods of Comparative Media Studies into the English and Language Arts classroom. The guide provides a set of lesson plans using Herman Melville's Moby-Dick as the sample text and a theater adaptation by Ricardo Pitts-Wiley entitled Moby-Dick: Then and Now as an example of a contemporary adaptation. The guide is intended to demonstrate techniques which could be applied to the study of authorship in relation to a range of other literary works, pushing us to reflect more deeply on how authors build upon the materials of their culture and in turn inspire others who follow to see the world in new ways.

How I Learned to Type - 0 views

  •  
    "How I Learned to Type," was created by Diana Kimball and Sarah Zhang of the Digital Natives team. It takes a glance into how people of different ages learned one of the first skills every digital inhabitant needs - typing. Do you "peck" with two fingers, type in multiple languages at once, or have a typing teacher with a wooden leg? The people in "How I Learned to Type" do all this and more. Digital technology has become so ingrained in our lives that for digital natives, learning to type has become a ubiquitous experience, as memorable, say, as learning to read or ride a bike.

Is Google Making Us Stupid? - 0 views

  • we may well be reading more today than we did in the 1970s or 1980s, when television was our medium of choice. But it’s a different kind of reading, and behind it lies a different kind of thinking—perhaps even a new sense of the self.
  • Once I was a scuba diver in the sea of words. Now I zip along the surface like a guy on a Jet Ski.
  • Even a blog post of more than three or four paragraphs is too much to absorb. I skim it.

      Yet I am managing to read the whole of this post... ;)
  • ...3 more annotations...
  • the circuits woven by our use of the Net will be different from those woven by our reading of books and other printed works.
  • The Net’s intellectual ethic remains obscure.
  • Old media have little choice but to play by the new-media rules.

      Does that apply to the "old teaching"?
  •  
    Via Dan Shareski. Is the way we read changing the way we think? Interesting implications for our students, who have grown in this environment yet are often taught in "the old way".
