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.

  • 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 literacy, 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

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?"
