A MUST read!!!

 

Lance Weihmuller's curator insight, February 13, 2013 4:58 PM

Answer: not really. 

 

But! "...55 percent say they’ve learned how to use interactive whiteboards." 

 

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 13, 2013 6:54 PM

I don't think we are, but that is not a problem. The question is "do teachers have the skills, the adaptability, and the learning aptitude?" We cannot fully imagine the next wave or generation of technology.

10 Great Guides for Better Professional Learning Network | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

I have recently published Teachers Guide to Personal/Professional Learning Networks ( PLNs ) in which I talked profusely about the importance of PLNs for our professional growth and I also provided some tools and tips on how to start creating your PLN from scratch.

 

I did received a lot of feedback following the publication of that guide and based on some suggestions and recommendations from you I made necessary changes to it and I am still updating it whenever needs be. Thank you so much for your collaboration.

My first reaction on reading the list of groups involved was negative. The University of Pheonix has a dog in this fight. They will want digital technologies to at the forefront. That is OK, but we need a balanced view of this emerging world and we need to question some of the views presented. We are not on the cusp of a relationship between humans and their digital tools. We have passed this cusp and each day we are in that emergent world. That kind of comment oversimplies a complex reality full of uncertainty.

Interessant rapport waarbij 'Change' in organisaties en bij mensen een zeer nadrukkelijke rol speelt. De tekenenen zien we nu al bij organisaties ontstaan.

Do We Need Social Media Education in Schools Now? | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it
Is it time for social media education in our schools? The recent Manti Te'o hoax is only the tip of the iceberg. He knew how to use social media, but didn’t understand its power.

 

There is an urgent need to educate students at all levels on the responsible use of social media. It’s time to help students navigate this unfiltered world of anonymous faces. When searching for a curriculum for social media education.

 

Teaching students how to set their privacy levels on applications is only the starting line, not the finish line.

SID Kit for Schools - Safer Internet Day

SID Kit for Schools - Safer Internet Day | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

Welcome, and thank you for joining us to celebrate Safer Internet Day (SID) 2013, taking place on Tuesday 5 February 2013 with the theme ‘Online rights and responsibilities’ and the slogan ‘Connect with respect’.

 

In 2013, for the second year running, we have again produced a SID Kit for Schools (and other educators), to bring together some great resources for raising online safety awareness.

 

Click on the links to the right to explore.

 

You can use the resources as best suits your local circumstances. For example, you may choose to use all or a selection of the resources, or you may choose to take parts of the kit and adapt them to your own needs. Likewise, although Safer Internet Day is celebrated on a particular day, you may choose to raise the profile of online safety over a day, week or month, depending on what is appropriate in your individual setting.

 

And, as this year’s theme focuses on ===>  ‘Online rights and responsibilities’,

 

– for example the ===> rights and responsibilities of parents and carers, educators, and industry, as well as the rights and responsibilities of children and young people themselves in their online lives. <===
