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.

How to become a teacher who innovates | digital creativity in education | Scoop.it
Have you ever thought, "I'm not one of those innovative, creative teachers?" Innovation is a skill. Build it like a muscle. Here are some ideas.

Via Chris Carter
Allan Shaw's insight:

This a gentle, simple introduction to the notion that innovation skills can be developed. Our urban myth is that innovation and creativity belongs to the select few. Creativity and innovation skills can be learned. Like all skills they take time and effort. Like all skills the initial stages are satisfying but also sometimes frustrating.

Below are some of my thoughts to the process of prototyping in terms of learning spaces and assessment.
How might space and time be adapted to allow more scope for self- and peer-assessment, and for action to be taken on the back of that?
Time must be given to students to be able to self and peer assess as outlined by Ron Berger (2012) in the video about ‘Austin’s butterfly’. It is important for teachers to build in the time when developing lesson and project timelines. This sort of activity is

'In the infographic, Blended and Online Assessment Taxonomy, we have organized types of activities that suit various levels of assessments (2001) starting with remember, understand, and apply in the first row. The second row of our infographic includes higher levels of active learning including analyze, evaluate, and create. Engaging curriculum whether face-to-face, blended, or online push student performances to these levels of learning; however, these assessments are less conducive to automated feedback systems as rubrics typically require intelligent judgment. The appropriate level of learning for any assessment should be determined by the learning objective(s).' - This is worthy of your time and reflection.

Allan Shaw's insight:

"Any time someone puts a lock on something you own, they’re not doing it for your benefit." Cory Doctorow.

We are in interesting times. Time tested notions of ownership, often based in a physical object are needing to adjust to new media, technologies and the dissemination power of these digital media. This post comments upon the various ownerships of the end user and that of the publisher, the locus of control and the legal leverage afforded to the ‘owner’.  Educators should be interested in these discussions as the same applies to student work and the work of teachers. Where does ownership lay? Where should it lay if different to the status quo? Should and can it be a form a form of shared ownership? Can ‘creative commons’ assist?

Digital Enterprise and Digital Transformation are terms we are hearing more of as time goes by. This post is a good explanation of the terminology and what will occur, perhaps inevitably, over time. Who knows how long and it may vary from economic sector to sector, but I suspect it is coming. The most successful transformations will occur with the use of technologies disruptive to current practice but where that technology allows for personal interaction amongst people.

Teach Reflection: Have You Seen Yourself Teach Lately?
Allan Shaw's insight:

Watching yourself teach is now so simple with digital video! It is an illuminating and powerful experience. It is many years since I was in the classroom for substantial periods of time but the memories of seeing my self teach on video remains a strong and vivid memory so many years later. At that time I learned so much about my craft simply by watching my self and reflecting on how the student's were learning (or not learning), engaged and involved or not, time on task, and especially whether the lesson was coherent to the students,  linked to prior material and foreshadowed coming lessons.

It's Time to Restructure Teacher Professional Development

"Mike Schmoker, through Education Week, reports on the publication of a report by TNTP, teacher-training and advocacy group, called "The Mirage," which is an unfavourable assessment of teacher professional development in the USA."

Allan Shaw's insight:

Teacher professional development should be based on what is shown to be effective in improving student learning. This is why professional learning that is focused on teachers working on and improving what they do (or do not do) in the classroom is important. It is directly related to student learning. Making what is effective in improving student learning the highest priority is sound, narrowing all professional learning to only that which is shown to be effective is limiting the broad contextual learning of teachers.

One of the means by which to sue social media in a classroom that I would be tempted to experiment more with is number 5 in order to draw parents into what their children do in class, though that maybe more related to my role as a school leader.
