Google Launches YouTube Curriculum to Educate Students on Digital Citizenship (Video)| The Committed Sardine

Google Launches YouTube Curriculum to Educate Students on Digital Citizenship (Video)| The Committed Sardine | Future Focus Learning in Australian School Libraries | Scoop.it

"Google has developed an interactive curriculum on YouTube to support teachers in educating students on how to be safe, engaged and confident model netizens.

 

The initiative is aimed at students aged 13 to 17 and will help them to develop digital literacy skills on YouTube that would be applicable across the web.

 

A list of 10 lessons has been devised, in which students can learn about YouTube’s policies, how to report content, how to protect their own privacy, and how to be responsible YouTube community members and, in the broader picture, digital citizens.

 

Each lesson comes with guidelines for teachers and ready-made slides for presentation. There’s also a YouTube Curriculum channel where videos related to the project will be posted."

Flipped classroom <>flipped school library

Flipped classroom <>flipped school library | Future Focus Learning in Australian School Libraries | Scoop.it

Flipping the classroom changes the place in which content is delivered. If the teacher assigns lecture-type, frontal instruction–in the form of video, simulations, slidecasts, readings, podcasts–as homework, then class time can be used interactively. The class becomes conversation space, creation space, space where teachers actively facilitate learning.

Flipping frees face-to-face classroom time for interactive and applied learning, activities that inspire critical thinking, exploration, inquiry, discussion, collaboration, problem solving.  So, the classroom and the library become more learner-centered.

Free Technology for Teachers: The Teacher-Librarian is Your Best Tech Resource

Free Technology for Teachers: The Teacher-Librarian is Your Best Tech Resource | Future Focus Learning in Australian School Libraries | Scoop.it

The school librarian, once known for handling books, is now responsible for both print and nonprint resources. The job description has changed more in the last two decades than any other teaching position.

If you are a K12 educator, you are aware of the term "technology integration", but did you know that perhaps your greatest assistance can come from the school media specialist (or teacher-librarian)? Let's talk about what kind of help you can expect.......

The 33 Digital Skills Every 21st Century Teacher should Have | Future Focus Learning in Australian School Libraries | Scoop.it

Every single teacher is concerned about his/ her teaching practices and the skills involved in this process. How many times have you wondered about a better way to teach the same lesson you have delivered to an eariler class? How often have you used technology to engage your students and improve their learning ? These are some recurring questions we keep regurgitating each time our teaching skills are put to the test.
