  •  
    "Teaching in a digital world, while essential, can be a difficult task. The digital world is constantly evolving, and it can be hard to keep up with new trends. And while students often enter the classroom with a high degree of digital awareness, it is often confined to the world of social media. How then, do educators learn about digital literacy, so they can model and teach it to their students?  Thankfully, there are tons of apps, tools, and resources that can help. We decided to profile the best ones."

How school leaders can combat 'filter bubbles' and 'fake news' | @mcleod | Dangerously ... - 1 views

  •  
    "Information literacy has been a hot topic of recent conversation. Many folks believe that web sites that traffic in false information and 'fake news' may have influenced the last United States presidential election. Traffic on the Snopes web site, which debunks false rumors, has never been greater. Ideological separation also is being driven by the ways that we sort ourselves in our schools, neighborhoods, friendship groups, political affiliations, and faith institutions. Already often isolated from the dissimilar-minded, we then also self-select into individualized news media and online channels that can result in walled-garden 'echo chambers' or 'filter bubbles.'

    To combat our growing concerns about fake news and filter bubbles, we're going to have to take the task of information literacy more seriously. And that means rethinking some organizational and technological practices."

Google Extends Digital Literacy Training to Teachers | EdTech Magazine - 5 views

  •  
    "Digital citizenship has stepped into the forefront of a modern-day education. Experts indicate that as schools roll out tech, they also need to be rolling out digital citizenship education.

    Tech giant Google heeded that call and partnered with experts to launch Be Internet Awesome, an interactive campaign that educates students on how best to act on the internet.

    One part of this Google campaign is Interland, a game that has students travel an imaginary world where they need to fight hackers, phishers, oversharers and bullies with digital citizenship skills. While game-based learning can be effective, educators also need to be armed with skills to teach their students to be citizens of the web.

    This month, Google extended its Be Internet Awesome program to include a free online training course to help educators establish foundational skills needed to teach their students to have a safe and positive experience online."

Maker Mindset and our Invention Literacy PBL | Create, Collaborate, Innovate - 5 views

  •  
    "I had some visitors in my library makerspace last week that were wanting to add an aspect of maker education into their own libraries.

    As they walked around our space, visited with my collaborating English teacher, and witnessed students prototyping for our invention literacy project, they said something surprising.

    "We noticed you have traditional wooden library chairs and tables, so it isn't about the furniture, is it? Maker Education? It's about the mindset?""

  •  
    "Two interesting observations:

    In the K-12 classroom, today's youth spend 90 percent of the time with text-based materials and 10 percent of the time with image-based materials.
    Outside the K-12 classroom, today's youth spend 90 percent of the time with image-based materials and 10 percent of the time with text-based materials.
    (CN is saying that ES is exaggerating (again). OK, OK … The percentages aren't exact -but they are absolutely in the right ballpark.)"
