    I woke up this morning to find the following Tweet from Jeremy Brueck:This line between digital literacy and networked literacy is a fine one... Interesting read worth perusing.

Educational Leadership:Literacy 2.0:Teaching Media Literacy - 0 views

    • Cleve Couch
      Only 76% of my current students have internet access at home via laptop or PC
  • U.S. students may learn something about evaluating sources in research paper assignments and learn to recognize propaganda in social studies, but that's often the extent of their media literacy instruction.
    • Cleve Couch
      We have more than 1400 students at my middle school; we share two carts of laptops with 30 laptops each among more than 400 sixth graders--very limited amount of access time.
  • ...9 more annotations...

  • spurred by students' access to unlimited information on the Internet.
  • Can students learn to recognize bias, track down sources, and cross-check information?
  • One of the most basic strands of media literacy emphasizes the skills and knowledge students need to locate and critically assess online content.
  • digital media literacy skills are vastly underrepresented in the curriculum for all but the most advanced students (as, indeed, are offline critical-thinking and literacy-comprehension skills).
  • Choosing appropriate search engines, following relevant links, and judging the validity of information are difficult challenges, not only for students of all ages, but also for most adults, including many teachers.
  • Although based on offline rather than online media literacy, the study found that explicit media literacy instruction increased both traditional literacy skills, such as literacy comprehension and writing, and more specific media-related skills, including identification of techniques various media use to influence audiences.
  • From video games to social networks, incorporating what students are doing online into the school curriculum holds great, and perhaps the only, promise for keeping students engaged in learning

Literacy Debate - Online, R U Really Literacy? - Series - - 0 views

    Terrific article about what literacy really means - books and periodicals, online literacy, etc. "Some Web evangelists say children should be evaluated for their proficiency on the Internet just as they are tested on their print literacy comprehension. Starting next year, some countries will participate in new international assessments of digital literacy, but the United States, for now, will not."

Visual Literacy - Metalanguage & Learning - 0 views

    An increasingly significant aspect of literacy is an awareness of the visual elements that fall beyond the traditional components of written text. Termed 'Visual literacy' this is the ability to read and create communications that use visual elements. It combines the skills of traditional literacy with knowledge of design, art, graphic arts, media and human perception. It takes literacy further beyond a decoding of text to a decoding of the complete package around the communication.

Life on the Screen: Visual Literacy in Education | Edutopia - 29 views

    From Edutopia, The role of visual literacy in education.  ...from the article: "When people talk to me about the digital divide, I think of it not being so much about who has access to what technology as who knows how to create and express themselves in this new language of the screen. If students aren't taught the language of sound and images, shouldn't they be considered as illiterate as if they left college without being able to read or write?"

Storybook Adventure - Lifelong Literacy (Library of Congress) - 20 views

    Explore classic stories "The Wizard of Oz," "The Mermaid," and "Aladdin" and collect treasure. Great activity for using context clues. As the questions pop up, students who don't know the story can click on the link "Read the book to discover the answer" and be taken to the page in the book that contains the information they need to answer. Great for teaching students to go back to the text to find information and use context clues.
