Towards a Theory of Digital Literacy: Three Scenarios for the Next Steps - 0 views

    • IN PI
      The choice, in this case, is not just between two categories of skills or literacies; it is rather a choice between two cultures, (a) one favoring rationality, continuity, criticism, abstract thinking, individuality, authenticity, systematic planning, and thinking; and (b) the other favoring fragmentation, spontaneity, concrete visual processing of knowledge, connectedness, reproduction, and branching associative thinking.
    • IN PI
      * Should education strive to achieve the enhancement of post modern values, or rather the preservation (as much as possible) of modern values? * Should the aim, instead, be some combination of the two? * If so, what combination (Aviram, 2005; Dator, 1993; Postman, 1992, 1995)?
    • IN PI
      This is indeed the probable default scenario. If that is so, and if the radical hypothesis about the civilization clash is true, it is likely that photo-visual skill, branching skill and reproduction skill will be powerfully enhanced, while the ability for criticism, or indeed, rational thinking of any kind, may deteriorate. Some might take it to be a desired scenario, but if it is, it calls for a conscious decision, rather than being dragged towards it blindly.

    An ongoing exchange on the Authorship 2.0 blog inspired me to rethink a famous quotation. I found that this essay sports a Creative Commons attribution, non-commercial, share-alike license (Notice to Students and Teachers).

Bibliotecas móviles como instrumento para promover la lectura - 0 views

    Cuando pensamos en bibliotecas móviles, siempre las asociamos con los bibliobuses. Sin embargo, existen otros medios de transporte, que son usados en determinadas zonas, a las que no se puede llegar de otra forma: el agua, la selva o el desierto no son barreras para acceder a la lectura. BIBLIOLANCHA En Argentina: Una lancha de 8 m de eslora recorre las islas del Delta del Paraná en el noroeste de la provincia de Buenos Aires. Dotada de un fondo de 2.000 ejemplares, dispone de ordenadores con conexión a Internet y organiza talleres de promoción a la lectura. Es atendida por un "promotor cultural" ayudado por un bibliotecaria y una voluntaria de la zona que se atiende. El inconveniente para poder prestar sus servicio, radica en los elementos climáticos, como en este caso el tema de las crecidas del río.
