Digital Literacy presentation for Shanghai American School Elementary School parents. Note all videos used in the presentation are embedded at http://www.theswivelchair.com/digital-literacy-for-parents/
I didn't embed them here as I only used snippets of the first 2. The last three are in the entirety, so I may get around to embedding one day!!

The first 3 minutes of Sir Ken Robinson was used. The last 3 minutes of Machine is using us was used.
Pmacoun's graphic outlining the 3 major areas of Digital Literacy was used.

  • No idea as to the future of education
    Everyone has a vested interest
    Children starting school this year retire 2065
    Unpredictable
    Creativity is as important in Education as literacy
    Our perception of what it means to be successful and hierarchy of Educational subjects LET’S RANK OUR SUBJECTS IN MATTER OF IMPORTANCE…ie. Math, Science, Language Arts, Physical Education, Music, Art, Drama, Dance
    Where does Technology fit into this?

  • How can we prepare students when we don’t know where it’s heading……. It was easy in the late 1800’s to design Education because we knew with the emergence of the Industrial Revolution that Engineering, Science etc were our future and that we required people to run this.
  • Today’s students have not just changed 
    incrementally from those of the past, nor simply changed their slang, clothes, body adornments, or styles, as has happened between generations previously.
  • Print email, Call people over to view a website, Phone someone to tell them the email you sent them, I had a credit card specifically for online purchases, Smartdirect.com.cn, MR Bister cd collection,
  • “Digital Natives crave interactivity—an immediate response to their each and every action. Traditional schooling provides very little of this compared to the
    rest of their world (one study showed that students in class get to ask a question every 10 hours)
    So it generally isn’t that Digital Natives can’t pay attention, it’s that they choose not to.”
  • Hannah in the Antique store recently.....
  • Digital Natives are used to receiving information really fast. They like to
    parallel process and multi-task. They prefer their graphics before their text rather than
    the opposite. They prefer random access (like hypertext). They function best when
    networked. They thrive on instant gratification and frequent rewards. They prefer games
    to “serious” work.  (Does any of this sound familiar?)
    I would like to watch and process this through a Digital Native mind
  • Stay positive about social networking sites – try to strike a balance
    between educating children and young people to behave safely and trusting
    them to get on with it. Get involved – ask them how to create a profi le, get
    them to show you theirs and ask them to add you to their friends list!

    12. 12. Digital Natives, Digital Immigrants Marc Prensky “ A really big discontinuity has taken place. One might even call it  a  “singularity”  – an event which changes things so fundamentally that there is absolutely no going back. This so-called  “singularity”  is  the arrival and rapid dissemination of digital technology in the last decades of the 20th century.”
    13. 13. Digital Immigrant Marc Prensky “As Digital Immigrants learn – like all immigrants, some better than others – to adapt to their environment, they always retain, to some degree, their "accent," that is, their foot in the past.”
