Education for a Digital World

  1. 1. Education for a Digital World Lisa Harris @lisaharris January 2014
  2. 2. What technologies are referred to here? “It will create forgetfulness in the learners' souls, because they will not use their memories.“ (Socrates, 469-399BC) “The modern world overwhelms people with data and this is confusing and harmful to the mind” (Conrad Gessner, 1565) Technology will kill… (Eric Qualman)
  3. 3. Why Curriculum Innovation? “Traditionally academics view the world through the eyepiece of a single discipline. But the real world is not like that, it is by its very nature interdisciplinary and can only be deeply understood when viewed from multiple perspectives. ” Mark Cranshaw, Understanding Modern China University policy is now directing us towards multidisciplinary research that: 1) feeds directly into teaching and 2) encourages student participation at all levels
  4. 4. Digital Literacy • “Digital literacy is the ability to locate, organise, understand, evaluate, and analyse information using digital technology. It involves a working knowledge of current tools and an understanding of how they can be used” • “The active management of online activities such as collaboration, networking , content creation and curation in order to “stand out from the crowd” in today’s job market” • “an ability to respond positively to change”
  5. 5. “The new media environment can be disruptive to our current teaching methods and philosophies. As we increasingly move toward an environment of instant and infinite information, it becomes less important for students to know, memorize, or recall information and more important for them to be able to find, sort, analyze, share, discuss, critique, and create information and knowledge. They need to move from being simply knowledgeable to being knowledge-able.” Wesch, M., 2011. From Knowledgeable to Knowledgeable: Building New Learning Environments for New Media Environments | UM Events | University of Michigan.
