Presentation Transcript

Slide 1:

Developing Critical Literacy Skills with Collaborative Online Tools Student’s perspective New approaches for new contexts of learning Presentation by Dr. Ania Lian, Critical Pedagogy and Technology Consultants, Pty. Ltd. PhD in Applied Linguistics University of Queensland

Slide 2:

This project evolved from research produced by Dr. Ania Lian in years 2000-2006. The model was trialed by Dr. Harald Kraus, Director of the English Language Institute, Dhurakij Pundit University Bangkok. Currently, the work described in this presentation forms a basis of an application for funding (with Associate Professor Carolyn Broadbent, Australian Catholic University, Canberra, School of Education) to teach information literacy and academic writing skills to school and university students experiencing difficulties in these areas. Dr. Ania Lian

Slide 3:

We illustrate the workings of the collaborative online tools from the students’ perspective. We will show: How students will work with the tools, how they are expected to construct their assignments, consult others, interact with the teacher, publish their own work and share it across the net. We also show that the tools are part of a low cost system , such as Google Sites, requiring little in terms of computer skills from the participants. The tools can be made available across Australia, with students using a copy of the mother website as their portfolio sites. They can also upload documents for public sharing on the main literacy website. In this presentation:

What is Knowledge? What is Information? What is Information Literacy? How does this System Work? What is a Research Project? List of Contents

Slide 5:

What is Knowledge? What is Information? What is Information Literacy? How does this System Work? What is a Research Project? Knowledge is a construct built from questions previously asked.

Slide 6:

What is Knowledge? What is Information? What is Information Literacy? How does this System Work? What is a Research Project? Knowledge grows with the new questions that we ask.

Slide 7:

What is Knowledge? What is Information? What is Information Literacy? How does this System Work? What is a Research Project? Research projects are questions that we explore.

Slide 8:

What is Knowledge? What is Information? What is Information Literacy? How does this System Work? What is a Research Project? Each research project draws on, and adds to, existing knowledge.

Slide 9:

What is Knowledge? What is Information? What is Information Literacy? How does this System Work? What is a Research Project? Information is formed by understandings that we draw from the pool of existing knowledge. This information we use to solve questions.

Slide 10:

What is Knowledge? What is Information? What is Information Literacy? How does this System Work? What is a Research Project? The type of information you draw from the pool of knowledge depends on what you see as relevant. Yes, you have the freedom to choose.

Slide 11:

What is Knowledge? What is Information? What is Information Literacy? How does this System Work? What is a Research Project? Sources of information range from library catalogues, the Internet, through to folk wisdom and practical everyday beliefs. They all matter. Sources:

Slide 12:

What is Knowledge? What is Information? What is Information Literacy? How does this System Work? What is a Research Project? Information literacy is the capacity to produce and present well-informed insights into the questions that we ask.

Slide 13:

What is Knowledge? What is Information? What is Information Literacy? How does this System Work? What is a Research Project? The task involves (a) identifying assumptions that obstruct our perspective on the question we ask AND (b) showing how these assumptions

Slide 14:

What is Knowledge? What is Information? What is Information Literacy? How does this System Work? What is a Research Project? Information itself has no value (hence broken arrows). This value is given by the student who shows advantages and disadvantages of different understandings in relation to the question that they research.

Slide 15:

What is Knowledge? What is Information? What is Information Literacy? How does this System Work? What is a Research Project? In this model we guide students through steps. They help identify assumptions that obstruct our vision. They also help showing how these assumptions prevent us from seeing more.
