This practitioner-focused article describes the process of blending scientific observation and journaling, writing captions as a means of creating text features, and integration of technology specifically digital storytelling. Second graders were taught four anchor mini lessons on observing nature using scientific skills, writing for a specific audience and purpose, taking...
This article elaborates on the competencies, often referred to as 21st century competencies, that are needed to be able to live in and contribute to our current (and future) society. We begin by describing, analysing and reflecting on international frameworks describing 21st century competencies, giving special attention to digital literacy...
Podcasts used as supplemental material (PSM) and podcasts integrated into the curriculum (PIC) are complementing, extending, and transforming the traditional face-to-face classroom as well as blended and online courses. This paper examines podcast download frequency among students in foreign language and literature courses over a four-year period by using both...
The EDUsummIT 2011 aimed to develop (a) recommendations for policy, practice and research that will help educational systems move into the digital age and (b) strategies to build a global community of researchers, policymakers and teachers in the field of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in Education. Thematic working groups...
The article discusses the role of technology in changing the way how young people communicate and interact with the world. Topics covered include criticisms on the lack of emphasis on digital media in the core curriculum of middle and secondary schools, the need to expand digital literacy practices, and the...
The article proposes the integration of new digital literacy practices found throughout 21st-century U.S. society into the pre-existing traditional literacy diagnostic systems used by schools to evaluate students and curricula. Comments are given criticizing educational diagnosticians which fail to distinguish new literacies from older, conventional practices. The authors assert that...
For understanding information and explanation while learning about the nature (so: biology, chemistry, physics...) via ICT the student must have developed skills implied in the terminus 21st century literacy, which implies so called computer literacy, media literacy, information literacy and above all visual literacy. Visual literacy in needed for perception...
Globalization and digitization have reshaped the communication landscape, affecting how and with whom we communicate, and deeply altering the terrain of language and literacy education. As children in urban contexts become socialized into communities of increasing cultural and communicational connectivity, complexity, and convergence (Jenkins, 2004), and funding for specialist second...
Youngsters are increasingly using digital technologies through participation in informal settings. Schools, however, seem to be struggling with implementing digital technologies into formal school activities. With the impact of digital technologies, media education can be seen as an increasingly important "transactional learning space" between school-based education and leisure activities among...
The technological and social/cultural demands of the 21st century are reshaping communication requirements. Students not only need to be able to communicate effectively in oral and written language, but they also need to communicate effectively in multimodal ways--they need to become skilled in multiliteracies. This article explains the two factors...
This investigation describes a theoretical model that considers the way in which learners establish and develop meanings in popular-culture contexts. These contexts have become increasingly sophisticated and multimodal in the digital age. The framework is based around the multiple modes of meaning as proposed by The New London group (2000)....
Empirical data from a research among students (Thessaloniki, Greece, 2004) show that even if they can manipulate Computers and Information devices (such as mobile phones) very easily, however they do not gain any "profit" from the endless possibilities that new technologies offer. More generally, it seems that education follows IT...
Outlines the distinctive features of a small-scale literacy program offered to urban Aboriginal school students, which was premised on understandings of critical multi-literacies and explored through technological environments and texts. Argues for literacy programs to address critical practices that interrogate texts across multiple texts and modes. Presents a model of...
This paper explores the digital engagement of English additional language students with minimum previous exposure to technology, in an undergraduate English classroom in Johannesburg. Within a critical pedagogy and critical literacy framework, and using Canagarajah's (1997, 2004) and Pratt's (1991) exploration of 'safe houses', the paper agrees that the digital...
The article discusses the study conducted by a Grade 8 class who participated in a WebQuest on teen e-zines, wherein the ways in which digital literacy mediated young adolescents' literacy learning are explored. Several sections were featured in the WebQuest, including Introduction, Task, Process, Resources, Expectations, Report, Evaluation Rubrics and...
New Information and Communication Technologies such as the Internet, online gaming worlds, artificial intelligence, robotics and 3D printing require new literacies. In recent years, digital competence has become a key concept in discussions on the kind of skills and understanding learners need in the Knowledge Society. The concept has been...
Research into the uses of digital literacy in the classroom is still in its infancy. Despite the proliferation of theoretical literature on ‘new literacies’, ‘multiliteracies’, and ‘technoliteracies’ and their impact on education there are fewer studies based on a systematic analysis of the new literacy practices that are beginning to...
Digital communication has transformed literacy practices and assumed great importance in the functioning of workplace, recreational, and community contexts. This article reviews a decade of empirical work of the New Literacy Studies, identifying the shift toward research of digital literacy applications. The article engages with the central theoretical, methodological, and...
This article is derived from a study of the use of Facebook as an educational resource by five dyslexic students at a sixth form college in north-west England. Through a project in which teacher-researcher and student-participants co-constructed a group Facebook page about the students’ scaffolded research into dyslexia, the study...
This paper provides a theoretical framework for the study of the video chat, a spontaneous web-based synchronous text that allows forms of communication in which social semiotic resources come into play and produce a new terrain of investigation for researchers in the field of linguistics, multimodality, communication and media studies,...
