    We will focus on the changing nature of literacy in the 21st century.
    We will focus on how technology is changing the way learning occurs > Connectivism
    We will show how we’ve applied these fundamentals to a digital literacy service-learning project.

  • Literacy ThenLiteracy 1.0
    As historically considered,
    “Prior to the 21st century, literacy defined a person’s ability to read and write, separating the educated from the uneducated. With the advent of a new millennium and the rapidity with which technology has changed society, the concept of literacy has assumed new meanings.”
    Barbara R. Jones-Kavalier and Suzanne L. FlanniganConnecting the Digital Dots: Literacy of the 21st Century
    Florida State College at Jacksonville
    Open Campus
  • Literacy Now:Literacy 2.0 and Beyond
    What Hasn’t Changed:
    Literacy still means collecting the knowledge, analyzing, evaluating, and communicating that knowledge.
    What Has Changed:
    “Digital and visual literacies are the next wave of communication specialization. Most people will have technologies at their fingertips not only to communicate, but to create, to manipulate, to design, to self-actualize.”
    Barbara R. Jones-Kavalier and Suzanne L. FlanniganConnecting the Digital Dots: Literacy of the 21st Century
    Florida State College at Jacksonville
    Open Campus
  • The New Learning Landscape
    In this new landscape, knowledge (digital, visual, computers, groups, communities of practice, personal communities, formal, informal) is distributed across a network of connections among specialized sets or information nodes.

  • Literacy = Connectivism = Learning
    The ability to construct & traverse networks.
    A set of actions & experiences
    Takes into account technology & networks
    Responds to diminishing shelf life of knowledge (much of what we know today was not known ten years ago.)
    Information flow between information and people
    Florida State College at Jacksonville

  • New Learner Requirements
    Ability to draw distinctions between important and unimportant.
    Ability to understand how new information can alter the landscape.

  • Our Pilot Program for 2010How We Decided to Approach the Goal
    In the past, the Seeds of Change participants had been given busy work: research for the sake of research, but not toward an actual goal.
    We created a student-centered program, filled with opportunities for decision-making.
    Was this a risk? Some thought so, but it paid off.
    Placed students in teams of similar personality types in order to create built-in comfort and support, then let the groups decide who would hold what roles and what their team portfolios would eventually look like.

  • Our Pilot Program for 2010
    The common goal – providing a service to City Kidz
    In order to provide this service, the students needed to know more than just how to use Facebook, but also needed the ability to create, remix, and manage digital artifacts, so they had to learn digital literacy along the way – they couldn’t help but learn.
    Allowed students to choose their paths toward reaching a common goal - in order to create a network of understanding for the students.
