tutor digitale: in arrivo in Italia

Un articolo di Eduscuola Social network, in arrivo anche in Italia l’educazione digitale parte da una domanda che professori delle scuole di tutti gli ordini e grado si pongono: “Portare Facebook e Twitter a scuola significa avere una classe di ragazzi e ragazze  distratti dai propri smartphone?”

L’articolo non risponde alla domanda, ma descrive una risposta che si potrebbe adottare in Italia: l’individuazione di un tutor digitale scolastico con i compiti di educare studenti, e docenti, all’uso dei social network per fini didattici e non solo.

Per ora è una proposta di legge, ma chissà che non sia un passo in avanti verso l’inserimento della cittadinanza digitale nelle scuole.

How Google Has Changed Student Research – Edudemic

You know how some days, you feel older than others? I always tend to feel old when I look at education trends and examine just how far technology has come since I was in graduate school (which really doesn’t feel that long ago).  Even though I was in graduate school during the late 2000′s,  many things still had not made the jump to being technology based. Many things weretech based, but some of the big stuff – like research- had only come about halfway.

While I certainly wasn’t sifting through paper records to find out what library had the books I needed for a lit review, I still had to call the library to order them (they didn’t let you request interlibrary loan online at that time), wait for the physical books to arrive, and then schlep them home to sift through them. I’m sure many of you have the same reaction to this as I do – blech. 

The handy infographic below takes a look at how Google has changed student research with a special focus on graduate students. Google is not only the most widely used search engine, but they’ve developed a lot of education specific research tools to help students out. Keep reading to learn more.
