The 7 characteristics of a digitally competent teacher

The 7 characteristics of a digitally competent teacher | digital creativity in education | Scoop.it
Being a proper digitally competent teacher is not as simple as picking up an iPhone and tweeting. You need to be a good digital citizen, understand privacy, and more. In an effort to clarify and explain some of the most important characteristics that a digitally competent teacher must have, we whipped up this fun visual. [...]

Allan Shaw's insight:

These seven characteristics read as though they are quite normal and even commonsensical, a good sign they are correct! Digitally competent teachers enjoy their use of technology, new or old but are not seduced by new 'toys' simply for their own sake.

Teens, Social Media, and Privacy | Pew Research Center's Internet & American Life Project

Teens, Social Media, and Privacy | Pew Research Center's Internet & American Life Project | digital creativity in education | Scoop.it
Youth are sharing more personal information on their profiles than in the past. They choose private settings for Facebook, but share with large networks of friends.

 

 

 

 

 

Key findings include:

 

Teens are sharing more information about themselves on their social media profiles than they did when we last surveyed in 2006:

 

- 91% post a photo of themselves, up from 79% in 2006.

 

- 71% post their school name, up from 49%.

 

- 71% post the city or town where they live, up from 61%.

 

- 53% post their email address, up from 29%.

 

- 20% post their cell phone number, up from 2%.

US data but Pew Research is reputable. Privacy is a learned habit and we cannot assume younger people see the need. Maybe they will be proven correct and privacy is not required to the same degree as I feel it is and should be? Thanks Gust Mees.

Curation Is As Important as Creation

Curation Is As Important as Creation | digital creativity in education | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If you are interested in understanding how "content curation" differentiates itself from simple re-sharing and re-blogging here is a great article by Chris DeLine.

 

Great advice for anyone wanting to become an effective content curator: “Whether in tweets, in blog posts, in podcasts, or in newsletters, be ruthless with your attention.

 

...

 

Some adopt a strategy of blanket-curation, throwing everything new or fresh or remotely interesting online and letting other consumers make their own value distinctions.

 

Others assume the role of tastemaker, selectively making the decisions themselves.

 

Both have their place, but the former contributes to what Jonathan Haidt calls “the paradox of abundance,” which he says “undermines the quality of our engagement.”

How many content-overload websites can you monitor before you become overwhelmed by volume? How many share-explosions does it take before you remove a friend from your Facebook feed? How many Tumblr pages can you pay attention to before the reblogs become a blur?

 

...

Thoughtful, honest, and caring curation isn’t entirely different than creation.

 

After all, the topics you choose to research, to blog about, and to discuss with friends all begin with the process of sifting through the media abyss yourself and singling out worthwhile information."

 

What really counts is to create content that is useful, meaningful and helpful for others, whether from direct hand authorship, or by curating the best existing resources.

 

Insightful. 8/10

7 Tenets of Creative Thinking

7 Tenets of Creative Thinking | digital creativity in education | Scoop.it

In school, we learn about geniuses and their ideas, but how did they get those ideas? What are the mental processes, attitudes, work habits, behaviors, and beliefs that enable creative geniuses to view the same things as the rest of us, yet see something different?

Allan Shaw's insight:

As a former designer and goldsmith and then visual arts and design and technology teacher, the seven tenets of creative thinking resonate very positively. They are indicative of my experiences as a professional in a creative field; they are indicative of my experiences as a teacher of others and also indicative of my endeavours as a education leader trying to show a modicum of creativity in making school education a better place for young people. I commend this post to you! Thanks Gust Mees!

How Matchmaking Technology Can Help Reduce Teacher Turnover - The Huffington Post

 

In fact,30 percent of new teachers quit before three years and almost 50 percent quit before five years.

 

The biggest reason for leaving? Nope, not pay. It's a little more complex than that. The biggest reason for leaving was the culture.

 

It was satisfaction with working conditions, which included relationships with colleagues, quality of professional development, quality of the curriculum, building conditions, etc.

BYOD: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

BYOD: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly | digital creativity in education | Scoop.it

“BYOD” Bring Your own Device. A great idea that can easily turn messy.

 

Biztech has introduced the BYOD: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly infographic asking you to answer 6 easy but important questions before you launch into a BYOD situation.

 

If your company is considering allowing employees to bring their own devices to work, make sure you have a game plan in place.

BYOD has freed up many enterprises from the responsibility of exclusively purchasing and maintaining computing devices, such as notebooks, tablets and smartphones, but companies still need to have policies set in place to make things work.

BizTech magazine has put together an infographic that highlights six core questions every company should consider before moving forward with BYOD:

 

- Who buys the devices?


- What’s the right policy?


- What’s the employee’s role?


- What’s the impact on IT?


- How do we tackle security?


- How about apps?


For each of these questions, we’ve outlined a good answer, which we’d advise you to follow; a bad answer, which probably isn’t the best way to handle things; and an ugly answer, which should be avoided at all costs. Hopefully, this will help your company remain on the pleasant side of this growing workplace trend.
