Stephen Downes

Knowledge, Learning, Community

This article offers a quick and very traditional approach to teaching digital literacy. It's based on the idea of 'gradual release of responsibility', which features direct instruction at first, but gradually allows students to assume more control of their learning. It offers a blend of online and offline, teacher-led and collaborative learning strategies. And "we can't just teach students how to do these things. We must model and continue to scaffold these strategies (both in print and digital) so students can transfer them into their everyday reading and thinking habits." It's a good article for beginners, but would require much more substance to be useful to more experienced instructors. Via Miguel Guhlin.
