Ulearn 2012 - Key Note Jason Ohler

Key note, first of the conference, by Jason Ohler - website and the presentation available there or directly here.

Key ideas for educators:

- Be a door opener. Allow kids to access through doors that you may anticipate having to open
- BYOD - be prepared to have students bringing a variety of devices and do things differently to achieve the same outcome and share the process with each other.
- Be prepared to turn devices ON/OFF to talk and communicate with each other.
- Augmented, Immersive reality
- Literacy means consuming and producing the media forms of the day, whatever they are.

10 Digital Literacy Guidelines

- Shift from text-centrism to new media collage
- Value writing more than ever
- Adopt Art as the 4th R
- Follow DAOW of literacy
- Attitude is the aptitude (your love of learning determines how smart you are)

- Practice personal and social literacy
- Develop literacy about impact of digital tools
- Develop literacy about information
- Fluency, not just literacy
- Harness both report and story, embrace the story! The story should have a problem (tension) > transformation (growth) > solution (resolution) >
