Why might we want to learn Digital Technologies? - The Learner's Way - 11 views

    Understanding the "Why" of any initiative should be a key step prior to implementation. Without a clear understanding of our "Why" how are we to judge the success of what we are implementing. How will we know which steps take us in the right direction if we have no concept of why we are journeying. In our implementation of ICT (Information & Communication Technologies) and now Digital Technologies, a lack of clarity on the matter of "Why" has often been the most significant challenge to success.

We can be certain that technology is not going to go away and that those who maximise the affordances that it brings are likely to gain the most from it.

Rules about technology use can undermine academic achievement - 12 views

    "Parents who restrict their children's use of new media technologies may be acting counterproductively in the long run, particularly if they invoke afterschool homework time as the reason. Their children's scholastic achievements at college lag behind the academic performance of same-age peers, a University of Zurich study shows."

      Could be a useful tool when just starting
  • Remember that it is NOT about the tools we use with our students, but the skills we are exposing them to and want them to get proficient in.
    • need to evaluate and interpret information
    • tag bookmarks (their own and/or the ones collected by their teacher)
    • summarize bookmarks (their own and/or the ones shared by teacher)
    • take advantage of “experts in the field” (by subscribing to their RSS for specific tags)
    • learn to search for relevant information beyond “googling”
    • collaborate with other members of a study group (local or global)
  • ...2 more annotations...
  • a critical mistake when introducing digital tools by assuming that armed with a username and a password, students will automatically find meaningful ways to learn together.

Social media to blame for poor grades? - 19 views

    ""Concerns regarding the allegedly disastrous consequences of social networking sites on school performance are unfounded," says Professor Markus Appel, a psychologist who holds the Chair of Media Communication at Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg (JMU) in Bavaria, Germany.

    Markus Appel, PhD student Caroline Marker (JMU) and Timo Gnambs from the University of Bamberg have taken a closer look at how the social media use of adolescents correlates with their school grades. "There are several contradictory single studies on this subject and this has made it difficult previously to properly assess all results," Marker says. Some studies report negative impacts of Snapchat & Co., others describe a positive influence and again others do not find any relationship at all."
