It is better to fail in originality then succeed in imitation - Herman Melville.

 

Too often teachers, for various reasons, have to succeed in imitation and embrace the latest fad of a School manager or executive who are not in the classroom.

4 Principals Of Digital Literacy

4 Principals Of Digital Literacy | Digital Literacy and Digital Citizenship | Scoop.it

"Literacy is the ability to make sense of something, often generalized as the ability to read and write. In many ways, reading is reading, media is media, but in the same way a play places unique comprehension demands on a reader compared to a poem or a letter, so do digital media compared to classic media forms. In the 21st century, new literacies are emerging and digital media forms allow communication to be more nuanced than ever before."

Many teachers have added ‘digital literacy’ as number four on the list of literacies their students should have (or be working towards, in most cases). Reading, writing, and math are now followed by digital literacy. Obviously, depending on the grade level  you teach, your students will have different abilities in each of the four areas, …

The Myth Of Digital Citizenship And Why We Need To Teach It Anyway

The Myth Of Digital Citizenship And Why We Need To Teach It Anyway | Digital Literacy and Digital Citizenship | Scoop.it
At one time in the not so distant past there were no cell phones. And then everything changed at a rate faster than the speed of amending a student handbook. I can distinctly remember the first time one of my 8th grade students brought a cell phone to school. It really wasn’t that big of a deal, more of a novelty really. I mean one student with a cell phone had next to no bearing on our day to day school operations. But then a second student brought a cell phone.

This is a very interesting perspective. Texting is similar to passing notes. The idea we have rules in place makes sense. Questions should be asked. One that comes to mind is the texting disrupting learning?

Teachers Guide to Teaching Using Social Media

Teachers Guide to Teaching Using Social Media | Digital Literacy and Digital Citizenship | Scoop.it

The growing popularity and the pervasive use of social networking websites among our teens and students is a fact we can no longer ignore. Unfortunately, many school boards  still promulgate laws that inhibit access to these platforms in schools and thus missing on huge learning opportunities for students. Instead of forcing an unwarranted ban on these media tools why not embrace them and turn them into learning hubs where our students can thrive academically.

The Importance of Teaching Digital Citizenship

The Importance of Teaching Digital Citizenship | Digital Literacy and Digital Citizenship | Scoop.it

With technology playing a central role in education, teaching Digital Citizenship I believe, is a foundational and non-negotiable message that should be taught explicitly to all students. Digital Citizenship not only teaches students the etiquette involved in being a smart and effective participant in a digital world, but it empowers and equips students with essential life tools to help them navigate challenging digital based situations. I am a strong believer that until this becomes a natural and intrinsic process engrained for our students, Digital Citizenship should be taught.

Online safety issues comes at the top priorities of parents. They all show a deep concern about their kids use of internet and the time they spend navigating the web but when asked about the preemtive measures to take to protect their kids, several parents hide behind the popular " I am not tech-savvy" excuse. I said excuse because most of the parental control measures found in different media platforms are simple to activate and do not require any tech-saviness".
