The ﬁnal volume in an
acclaimed trilogy (A Gentle Madness and Patience & Fortitude) focuses on efforts to preserve books and other printed matter from the ravages of deterioration, destruction and obsolescence. Even the most ancillary data have the power to fascinate: who knew, for example, that the Roman emperor Claudius was also probably the last scholar ﬂuent in the language of the ancient Etruscans?
Three challenges for the web,
according to its inventor http://webfoundation.org/2017/03/web-turns-28-letter/ In an open letter to mark the web’s 28th birthday, Tim Berner’s Lee outlined issues he says need to be solved for it to “fulﬁl its true potential as a tool which serves all of humanity.”
1) We’ve lost control of
our personal data 2) It’s too easy for misinformation to spread on the web Trends in knowledge construction
Facebook knows all kinds of
stuff about you and your weird little preferences—from personal details you offer directly to preferences based on your clicks and likes (which can often do a better job of describing you than your friends can). And some of that information is made available to developers. https://www.technologyreview.com/s/603855/facebook-forbids-the-use-of-user- data-for-surveillance/
What Algorithms Want We depend
on—we believe in —algorithms to help us get a ride, choose which book to buy, execute a mathematical proof. It’s as if we think of code as a magic spell, an incantation to reveal what we need to know and even what we want.
Voice interaction – the ability
to speak to your devices, and have them understand and act upon whatever you’re asking them We’re ushering in an entirely new era of faceless computing

The great challenge of a
digital education is meeting the connected creative needs of students who have grown up in the digital era, and at the same time meeting the expectations of teachers and parents who haven’t!
Global perspectives on information literacy
http://www.ala.org/acrl/sites/ala.org.acrl/ﬁles/content/publications/whitepapers/ GlobalPerspectives_InfoLit.pdf • Describe the connection between information literacy and student learning from your position or perspective. • What is your teaching philosophy? • How do you use theory to improve student learning in your classroom? • What standards/frameworks/models/learning theory/ pedagogy or speciﬁc paradigms do you most often use for inspiration in your teaching? • Why do you turn to these models? What makes them useful?
Our world changed in April
1993 when the Mosaic 1.0 browser was released to the general public. We need new forms of education. We need to reform our learning institutions, concepts, and modes of assessment for our age. Now, anyone with access to the World Wide Web can go far beyond the passive consumer model to contribute content on the Web. Remember Anthony and William?
•Knowing the trends in knowledge
construction and participatory culture. •Knowing how to leverage social media and new media channels of communication. •Using a diversity of content materials. Agile approaches to connected learning
•An immediacy in interactions within
the cohort to improve learning and understanding in the formation of knowledge. •Always embedded in a multi-disciplinary meta-literate information ecology Agile approaches to connected learning

Participatory pedagogy They include such
activities as learning through social networking, searching and retrieving information, researching information, using information, games, collaboration and shared interests.
Participatory pedagogy Encouraging young people
to become reﬂexive, or more reﬂexive, about their practices, behaviours and ethics is vital both in the development of their stance as media managers and producers and in the development of voice, agency, personalisation and an ethical stance to their own practices.
In talking about the essential
paradigm shift that is taking place, Stanley (2011) highlights three areas of inﬂuence: Information ﬂuency — using search engines effectively; evaluating online information; collaborating in virtual environments, and delivering material resources online. Digital citizenship — understanding responsible and ethical use of information, and maintaining safe online practices. Digital storytelling — reading, writing and listening to books in many formats; creating, collaborating and sharing in a range of mediums. Digital inﬂuences Stanley. D.B. (2011). Change has arrived for school libraries, School Library Monthly, 27 (4)4, 45–47.
• “Knowledge assembly,” building a
“reliable information hoard” from diverse sources. • Retrieval skills, plus “critical thinking” for making informed judgements about retrieved information, with wariness about the validity and completeness of internet sources. • Awareness of the value of traditional tools in conjunction with networked media. • Awareness of “people networks” as sources of advice and help. • Being comfortable with publishing and communicating information as well as accessing it.

in a digital environment, in order to position where the literacy action is taking place and that it can be authentic, multimodal, far reaching, multi-tool, and code interdependent” Chase, Z., & Laufenberg, D.

common purpose to break overall cognitive development process into parts that can more easily structure educational processes and goals, and scaffold learning and individual knowledge development.

Evolving Learning Landscape Current thinking
about 21st century skills, and the learning experiences that support their development, are essential starting points for capacity building. A list of the workforce skills presented by Davies, et al (2011, pp. 8-12) include: • Sense-making • Social intelligence • Novel and adaptive thinking • Cross-cultural competency • Computational thinking • New-media literacy • Transdisciplinarity • Design mindset • Cognitive load management • Virtual collaboration http://www.iftf.org/our-work/global-landscape/work/future-work-skills-2020/

In an age of information
abundance learning to effectively search is one of the most important skills most teachers are often NOT teaching
What’s the yellow blotch? A
blog about search, search skills, teaching search, learning how to search, learning how to use Google effectively, learning how to do research. It also covers a good deal of sense making and information foraging.
For several years people have
been fascinated by small, robot- like ﬁgures popping up in city streets and other innocuous places. These ﬁgures, now documented in ﬂickr pools and blog posts from cities arose the world, can be attributed to Stikman (sometimes searched for and referred to as "stickman"), an anonymous grafﬁti artist, sometimes perhaps going by the alias "Bob," who has been putting these images up since at least 2006. http://searchresearch1.blogspot.com.au/2013/01/wednesday-search-challenge-11613-whats.html Search for 'painted yellow man robot' yielded 'stickman' for a better explanation.

Rather than simply identifying a
useful page, these systems try to pull the information from those pages that might be what a user is looking for, and to make this immediately apparent. More informative results?
Google is undertaking a new
effort to better identify content that is potentially upsetting or offensive to searchers. Search Engine Land on March 14, 2017 http://searchengineland.com/google-ﬂag-upsetting-offensive-content-271119
The effort revolves around Google’s
quality raters, over 10,000 contractors that Google uses worldwide to evaluate search results. These raters are given actual searches to conduct, drawn from real searches that Google sees. They then rate pages that appear in the top results as to how good those seem as answers. Quality raters do not have the power to alter Google’s results directly. A rater marking a particular result as low quality will not cause that page to plunge in rankings. Instead, the data produced by quality raters is used to improve Google’s search algorithms generally.
FutureLab (2010) propose that being
“digitally literate is to have access to a broad range of practices and cultural resources that you are able to apply to digital tools. It is the ability to make and share meaning in different modes and formats; to create, collaborate and communicate effectively and to understand how and when digital technologies can best be used to support these processes.’ http://www2.futurelab.org.uk/resources/documents/handbooks/digital_literacy.pdf
