New Media Literacy In Education: Learning Media Use While Developing Critical Thinking Skills

Howard Rheingold, Robin Good, Nov 06, 2007
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Robin Good has a real talent for taking a dull plain-text piece of content and presenting it in a way that is engaging and educational (when he's done some of my stuff in the past I've seen things in my own thought that I hadn't before). In this item, he takes the keynote presentation that Howard Rheingold delivered a couple of weeks ago to education.au and gives us a nice two-part version that is well worth looking at (I can't find Part II). Rheingold: "someone needs to educate children about the necessity for critical thinking and encourage them to exercise their own knowledge of how to make moral choices." Via Mission to Learn.
