The 9 Elements of Digital Citizenship Infographic

The 9 Elements of Digital Citizenship Infographic | 21st Century Technology Integration | Scoop.it

Digital access, commerce, communication, literacy and etiquette… What do these words have in common? Well, for starters, they are all components of digital citizenship. In fact, these concepts—and many more—are part of an online code of ethics students need to know about in order to develop and maintain a positive digital footprint and online presence.

 

As with any other type of education, we—as educators—can’t make assumptions that students have the necessary knowledge to make good decisions when surfing the web. And even if they do—they’re kids, so yeah, they constantly need to be reminded of what’s cool and what’s not.

18 Simple Ways To Make Your iPad Faster - TeachThought | 21st Century Technology Integration | Scoop.it
You bought your iPad new three years ago, and now it’s getting a bit long in the tooth.

Opening apps can take forever. Sometimes they crash, stop responding, or won’t open to begin with. If you want to extend the life of your little glass rectangle–and make your iPad faster in general–the following tips can help. And all of these tips are simple(ish)–nothing crazy like jail-breaking or changing hardware.

50 tips to develop and run your online courses | 21st Century Technology Integration | Scoop.it

As many K-12 U.S. public schools and districts are struggling to compete with 100 percent online cyber charter schools for essential student funding, many universities are struggling to understand the impact of MOOCs on future enrollment. Both of these scenarios point to the one thing that is abundantly clear, online education is having another growth spurt in the second decade of the 21st century and the race to create in-house online content is on.

Ever seen a cool font in a magazine ad, poster or on the web and wondered what font it is? Well, now you don’t have to ponder all that any longer because there’s a web tool that can identify mystery fonts. What the what?

 

Well, almost. It’s actually called WhatTheFont, a really swell site that assists users with discovering the names of unknown typefaces.

Part of the value of a Twitter backchannel is in understanding how it works. 

Kym Reinstadler, SCN Feature Writer's curator insight, March 30, 7:09 PM

Last week I attended my first Twitter chat around a hashtag. There were about 1,500 people in attendance. Keeping up with the flow of conversation was so challenging that I didn’t even try to participate. Also, expect "tweet overload" if you’re following a conference or symposium on Twitter. I expect to have better success this week because of this article. It contains excellent tips with graphics on using Twitter in these situations. It goes beyond the “how” to include the “why,” which always helps me grasp new learning. You’re welcome.

"“Am I writing to myself?” That’s what I used to wonder when I first started teaching Spanish online a year ago. My learning management system, message boards, and group emails were impersonal and unresponsive—more like writing in my diary than sharing information with my students. I never knew for certain who read and understood my announcements or received an (electronic) handout or assignment directions."
