  • There are many different ways to engage students, and one of those ways is through blended learning options. By using blended learning ideas in the classroom, students often learn more easily because they are interested in the activities and the knowledge.
    Presenting information to students the right way can be the key to seeing them develop a higher level of interest for anything they need to learn.

  • In today’s hypermedia landscape, youth and young adults are increasingly using social media platforms, online aggregators and mobile applications for daily information use. Communication educators, armed with a host of free, easy-to-use online tools, have the ability to create dynamic approaches to teaching and learning about information and communication flow online. In this paper we explore the concept of curation as a student- and creation-driven pedagogical tool to enhance digital and media literacy education. We present a theoretical justification for curation and present six key ways that curation can be used to teach about critical thinking, analysis and expression online. We utilize a case study of the digital curation platform Storify to explore how curation works in the classroom, and present a framework that integrates curation pedagogy into core media literacy education learning outcomes.

  • Today, we acknowledge that the digital citizen is a global citizen. There has been, like the U.S. Constitution drafters recognized, a need for a definition of checks and balances that will govern this “new” world-wide technology. While it certainly is not a governing set of laws or even enforceable, digital citizenship nevertheless defines the model behavior of today’s Global Digital Natives.
    So how do we make the definition clear for all? What are a few of the Global Digital Citizenship myths that we can get nipped in the bud? Read on …

AITSL Teacher feature video

(Cross-posted from Learn, do, teach…)

Back in September last year I attended a Teachmeet at Oxfam in Carlton. @becspink and I had sneakily signed up for two spots to fulfil our “creative coffee morning” task for INF536. Lewis Allen and Clinton Milroy were there from AITSL to promote the Teacher Feature section of the AITSL website. They wanted to film some teachers for the site and I managed to get myself involved. Luckily I was well-dressed and made-up ready to go out later that evening for my wedding anniversary (21 years, thanks for asking!).

I’d managed to forget all about it till today when going through some survey responses for the video I’m creating for INF532 someone had provided a link for a video they’d uploaded to Teacher Feature. Unfortunately the videos didn’t want to play on the AITSL website but I managed to track them down on Youtube. I was expecting to cringe when I watched myself, I always think I’m stumbling over words and saying way too many umms and ahhs when I’m being recorded, but I was pleasantly surprised (and thank you Lewis for responding so quickly to my request to have my name spelled correctly). Anyway, I’m happy enough to share the video here – what do you think?

If you go to AITSL’s YouTube channel you can see the playlist of videos including those recorded with Bec Spink, Mel Cashen and Leigh Murphy.
