How to be a moral internet citizen on the often-immoral internet

How to be a moral internet citizen on the often-immoral internet | Creative ideas | Scoop.it
From stolen celebrity photos to leaked domestic-violence videos, we are more tempted than ever to sneak glimpses of others' private lives. When is it okay to look?

 

Submerging yourself in the daily churn of the internet provides plenty of ethical quandaries, but the past month has put the ethics of web browsing — and, more precisely, the ethics of avoiding certain things — into unusually stark relief. Because increasingly, the ethical dilemmas of the internet era turn not on whether to share, comment on, or disseminate something, but whether to look at it at all.

 

The key thing is your reason for looking. Titillation, voyeurism, grotesque curiosity — if that's what's motivating your actions, don't look. But if you are motivated by genuine concern and believe that watching will challenge you to confront something difficult, and potentially change your views in a way that is good for our society, then by all means, look. We'll all be better off for it.

The Power of the 4Cs: The Foundation for Creating a Gold Standard for Project Based Learning (PBL)

The Power of the 4Cs: The Foundation for Creating a Gold Standard for Project Based Learning (PBL) | Creative ideas | Scoop.it

Creating a gold-standard for Project Based Learning and then reaching that standard may seem to be a bit like scaling a mountain - at first glance-difficult, very risky, and somewhat mysterious. However, even the tallest mountains can be climbed if you have the right knowledge, skills, tools, and support—and perhaps a little courage.  The same can be said for Project Based Learning. We at the Partnership for 21st Century Skills think a lot about skills - so let’s explore the skills that are needed.

Focusing On Creativity In A Digital Era - Te@chThought | Creative ideas | Scoop.it

"“Creativity now is as important in education as literacy, and we should treat it with the same status.” – Sir Ken Robinson

 

Our children will grow up into a world that we can barely yet conceive of. Education thinkers and leaders are now in broad agreement that in order to enable children to succeed in the 21st century we need to mould creative thinkers and problem solvers who can learn, unlearn and relearn."

Teaching Cultural Empathy: Stereotypes, World Views and Cultural Difference

Teaching Cultural Empathy: Stereotypes, World Views and Cultural Difference | Creative ideas | Scoop.it

"I am torn about how to teach these two ideas about cultures and societies all around the world:

People and cultures are different all over the world.People and cultures are the same all over the world.

These points may seem like a contradiction, but when put into proper context they teach important truths about culture."

Unit 3:

Shines insight on stereotypes that are commonly used throughout the world. Reading this article really made me think about stereotypes that are so commonly used they are considered acceptable. It's a ridiculous idea to think that all people under a culture act and behave the same way. 

Emily Coats's curator insight, March 24, 2015 12:06 PM

UNIT 3 CULTURE

This article is written to compare and contrast various ways to teach young school children about global cultures. On one hand, we can relate all cultures to each other, due to their common goals and views. For example, all families around the world aim to do what's best for each other, love and cherish one another, and try their hardest to succeed economically. On the other hand, cultures are extremely different around the world, with different music, clothing, and underlying views on life. We can continue to say that popular culture has diffused so greatly, with advanced technologies and means of transportation, so it has influenced and homogenized our landscape quite a bit. Folk culture is obviously still a powerful force, but popular culture does have some effects around the world. I believe that children need to understand the importance of maintaining diversity thy preserving folk culture but they also need to acknowledge the pros and cons of the global diffusion of popular culture and how it connects us at a global scale. 

Danielle Smith's curator insight, April 12, 2015 12:21 AM

I think Teaching Cultural Empathy: Stereotypes, World Views and Cultural Difference is a helpful article for teachers to read. This article considers ideas I constantly come back to, whilst collecting resources and ideas for teaching students about cultural diversity and identity. How do I teach students, that ‘people and cultures are different all over the world’ (Dixon, 2015, April 2), but also the same?

Dixon suggests that we need to teach that people and cultures worldwide are the SAME and DIFFERENT simultaneously.  In this way, students can appreciate the rich diversity of cultures and societies, whilst at the same time learning values of humanity and empathy, which unite us all.

 

I believe by recognising and appreciating the rich cultures of students in the classroom, we can explore and learn about cultural diversity in an honest, rich and non-stereotypical way and allow students to feel valued at the same time. In addition, as students know each other, this helps them relate to ‘people from other places, who speak other languages’ and follow different religions to their own (Dixon, 2015, April 2). Furthermore, this should help increase intercultural understanding in the classroom by developing a ‘socially cohesive’ environment that ‘respects, and appreciates cultural, social and religious diversity’ (MYCEETA, p. 7).

Gerald Carey's curator insight, October 23, 2014 2:40 AM

Gardner exquisitely and substantially cuts to pieces the concept of 'learning styles'. He describes teaching students whilst taking into account their learning styles as "without evidence' and 'not coherent'.

He also makes three suggestions to teachers. I'll let you read the article to find out.

Durriyyah Kemp's curator insight, September 24, 2014 10:12 AM

I love this idea.  At my son's school, the fall conferences are facilitated by the teachers, and the spring conferences are lead by the students.  It is a very nice way of allowing students to take responsibility for their effort and work-- to take pride in it, and/or recognize areas that need to be strengthened.  When students are aware that they will have to converse with their parents and teacher(s) about their work, they may take more time to ensure they are producing work that they can be proud of.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, September 6, 2014 11:04 AM

When I completed my Master's in Education, I used something similar to the 60 second paper and had students reflect on what was important to them in their learning. The most insightful times were when someone said the learning was of little value. That caused me to question what I was doing and rethink the way I taught. Sometimes it worked and other times it did not.
