      Parents often view their children as wasting time on their phones or tablets but it was how their parents felt when they were on the house phone talking with friends or would not come inside to do homework when they were out with friends. The only difference is how the children are interacting with their friends.

    1. The Internet Inquiry Project is an online research project that helps students develop the important digital knowledge and skills needed as they build their web literacies.

      Student Inquiry Projects have a valuable purpose.

    2. There are many variations as the project is student interest driven, and may last any amount of time. The design, focus, and length of the Internet Inquiry Project should be determined by your student learning objectives,

      Key to a good planning of a project.

    3. WebQuests typically contain an introduction, task, process, evaluation, and conclusion.

      I have only ever done/ been assigned 2 webquests throghout my entire educational experience. I am interested in making one for one of my lesson plans. Personally when I was/am assigned webquests, I am only looking for answers and not thoughtfully reading. I would be interested to make one where I can have the students engaged and have them do their own research rather than looking for fill in the blanks.

    1. students work both individually and in small groups at using strategies and skills from the previous phases to develop lines of inquiry around curricular topics.

      Definition of Phase 3.

    2. Another technique is to create Internet scavenger hunts connected to the curriculum. On completing the challenge, students share their searching strategies with the class.

      Phase 2

    4. Phase 1 centers on computer basics, word processing skills, Web searching, navigation basics, and e-mail.

      Phase 1

    5. We hope teachers can use these examples to develop their own ideas. Ideally, teachers will integrate the approach into units that they are already doing. This method ensures that students continue to develop traditional skills alongside the new skills of online reading comprehension.

      This statement makes a good point. If a teacher or anyone for that matter is told to change their ways completely, they wont and will rebel. If the steps are taken to gradually increase in transition is will me smooth.

    6. Reciprocal teaching revolves around four global comprehension strategies: predicting, questioning, clarifying, and summarizing. The teacher explains these strategies to small groups using a shared text, first modeling their use, and then asking students to lead the groups.

      Idea for Lesson Plan

    9. The gradual release of responsibility to students is central to both approaches.

      I think that this is valuable for teachers to understand. Students should be shown how to complete/solve tasks and then be given the opportunity to learn and create their own solutions. If students are not given an opportunity to learn on their own, then they will fail in the real world.

    10. Reciprocal teaching revolves around four global comprehension strategies: predicting, questioning, clarifying, and summarizing.

    13. The structure of the textbook was a map that Sarah could easily follow.

      I can somewhat relate to this because when I read a textbook I use the bolded words to guide my reading and when I read online I use the search bar to find keywords.

    14. "You do not simply answer these questions. It is not answer number one; then answer number two. These are questions you keep in the back of your mind as you work."

      This quote explains how to use digital literacy correctly. One should not find an answer and move on but instead research and find credible sources and compile evidence to back that answer up.

    1. The market research agency Childwise has been tracking UK children’s media uses since 1997 – the very beginning of the internet for most of us. I remember interviewing a 6 year-old girl in 1997 who asked, in a puzzled voice, “is the internet something you plug into the back of your TV?” (In that project, too, the exciting new device was the CD-ROM!)

      Tech is more prevalent now than ever before.

    1. or

      "Central to the challenges associated with the use of OER in the classroom are questions about the credibility, value, reliability, and permanence of access of these online materials (Zhang, 2001; Salmon, 2004; Chen et al., 2009)." Page 3 from Google Doc.

Feeling emotionally and physically safe and a sense of belongingBecoming more involved in the chosen interests they brought to YOUmediaImproving in at least one digital media skillImproving academic skills: better communication with adults and improved writing abilityUnderstanding more about opportunities available to them after high school

      Results of Connected Learning

    2. Connected learning does not rely on a single technology or technique. Rather, it is fostered over time through a combination of supports for developing interests, relationships, skills, and a sense of purpose.

      What Connected Learning Is.

    3. Understanding more about opportunities available to them after high school

      This is really valuable. I feel like a lot of students are unaware and afraid of what is after graduation.

    4. Librarians and mentors organize showcases, support the production of various projects and broker connections to other opportunities in their interest area.

      This is really great to see how professionals are taking into consideration to what these students want to learn and allowing them to take the power into their own hands.

    5. 30,000 college graduates found that a strong connection to a faculty member doubled the positive life outcomes of graduates.

      As a future teacher this makes me value my future studnets connections more.

    1. The great educator John Dewey wrote that interest operates by a process of “catch” and “hold”—first the individual’s interest must be captured, and then it must be maintained. The approach required to catch a person's interest is different from the one that’s necessary to hold a person’s interest: catching is all about seizing the attention and stimulating the imagination.

      John Dewey Quote on How to Promote Interest

    1. Making sense of different terminology and conventions used within online communities. Participating in both synchronous (communicating in real time) and asynchronous (time lag in communication exchanges) discussions. Discovering information and resources by asking people within social networks.

      This is important because not only is it critical to have the knowledge on how to communicate appropriately in real time it is also important to have online etiquette when communicating with time lagged or via tweets or posts. I believe this first, has to be taught in real time, in person.

    2. we need to provide people with open access to the skills and know-how needed to use the web to improve their lives, careers, and organizations.

      This is important because it is critical to not only know how to use the internet but how to utilize the internet as a tool to better ones life.

    3. reach and meet the growing number of diverse audiences using the web.

      The internet is growing/expanding to meet people who previously did not have access. These individuals have varying/diverse perspectives which is valuable to aid in our growth as a society.

    1. When we encourage students to use technology, do we remind them of the risks of placing their information online and give them choices of how much personal information to reveal?

      "Stranger danger " is a serious risk. Children and teens can often not think ahead that far in advance to understand the repercussions sharing an address or other personal information can cause.

    2. We should not be throwing students into the public domain to discuss sensitive topics without having conversations with them on what they might face and which of these risks they are willing to take, how they would handle it, and how they might support each other.

      This is very true. Internet safety is a must as the internet is a powerful tool but also can put the student in danger (now and later on in life). I do not remember my teachers talking to me about this. My school guidance counselors were ones who talked about this in a school setting and my mom at home.

    3. digital literacy would include in-depth questions

      Digital Literacy brings into questions in depth questions and forces the student to think of hypothetical real world situations.

    4. For example, teaching digital skills would include showing students how to download images from the Internet and insert them into PowerPoint slides or webpages. Digital literacy would focus on helping students choose appropriate images, recognize copyright licensing, and cite or get permissions,

      Difference between Digital Skills and Digital Literacy

    1. • Can explain concepts, principles, and processes by putting it their own words, teaching it to others, justifying their answers, and showing their reasoning

      One way students can express mastery of an assignment.


      Title of Table of Transfer Goals

    3. Learning priorities are established by long-term performance goals—what it is we want students, in the end, to be able to do with what they have learned.

      I think this is really important because school has become a place where teachers test and then move on (teach the test). But life is not a "test" and the information that is being taught should be information that can be applied in life or be a building block with that goal.

    4. The point of school is not to simply excel in each class, but to be able to use one’s learning in other settings.

      In most cases there is a difference between getting A's on a test and then truly mastering the material. To show mastery you must be able to apply the knowledge outside of a school setting and not just be able to "spit the facts on a test".

    5. Effective curriculum is planned backward from long-term, desired results through a three-stage design process (Desired Results, Evidence, and Learning Plan). This process helps avoid the common problems of treating the textbook as the curriculum rather than a resource, and activity-oriented teaching in which no clear priorities and purposes are apparent.

      Love this! I think this is brilliant because as a teacher you need to know the learning objectives first to then plan the lesson plan around the overall goal for the students.

    6. Six facets of under-standing—the capacity to explain, interpret, apply, shift perspective, empa-thize, and self-assess—can serve as indicators of understanding.

      Ways students can reveal their learning.

      "Students need to be web literate in the future" [conclusion].

      As technology is constantly changing and improving around us, students are not always allowed//permitted to show what they can do. The students are growing up with these advancements and as educators we need to adapt to what the next generation needs (in this case we need to give them opportunities to interact with technology in the classroom).
