Bonnie Bracey Sutton's insight:

Interactive media can still sometimes feel like a Choose Your Own Adventure book: fun and novel, but also kind of contrived and limited. But Do Not Track, a docu-series about data privacy that launched Tuesday, uses audience participation in a great way. As the series goes through different aspects of online data collection, it uses the examples of your choice to show how much data sharing is going on behind the scenes online, and how easy it is to develop profiles about Web users.

For instance, the movie analyzes your IP address and browser connection to tell you what country you're currently in, what the weather is in your area, what time of day it is, and what type of computer you're on (Mac or PC). It's an effective moment that shows just how personal the documentary is going to be.
“Each viewer is going to have a different experience as they watch it,” Brett Gaylor, the creator and director, told the Guardian. “Privacy is a very complex issue and it can be abstract for people so we wanted to explore ways that we could have that hit home—literally.”

Three Books to help Teens Think Critically

Three Books to help Teens Think Critically | digital citizenship | Scoop.it
These three books are nice primers for teens that will get them at least thinking about critically looking at issues:



Debunk It!: How to Stay Sane in a World of Misinformation (Zest, 2015; Gr 9 Up)
We live in an era of misinformation, much of it spread by authority figures like broadcasters, politicians, and religious leaders. (The various pundits on blogs and websites don’t help either.) With so much bogus information from so many sources, how can anyone be expected to discover the truth?
In Debunk It!, author John Grant uses modern, ripped-from-the-headlines examples to clearly explain how to identify bad evidence and dismantle poor arguments. He provides a roundup of the rhetorical tricks people use when attempting to pull the wool over our eyes, and even offers advice about how to take these unscrupulous pundits down. So if you’re tired of hearing blowhards spouting off about climate change, history, evolution, medicine, and more, this is the book for you. Debunk It! is the ultimate guide for readers seeking a firmer footing in this very slippery world.
ISBN-13: 978-1-936976-68-3







Kevin C. Pyle and Scott Cunningham Bad for You: Exposing the Campaign Against Fun. A Graphic Investigation. (Holt, 2013; Gr 8 Up)
BAD FOR YOU takes a historical look at the hysterical horror adults have felt about kids starting back with Plato (yeah, that one) and his worries over the new “technology” from his time: the written word! Kevin C. Pyle and Scott Cunningham cleverly expose the long-standing FIGHT AGAINST FUN for what it really is: a bunch of anxious adults grasping at straws, ignoring scientific data, and blindly yearning for the good old days that never were.
“Scott Cunningham and Kevin Pyle’s Bad For You is an antidote for all the lies we’ve been fed our whole lives. It’s a brilliant documentary in the form of a comic — but that doesn’t come close to capturing the humor, style and surprise they bring to every page. Like a Mad magazine parody, it’s full of laughs — until you realize, IT’S ALL TRUE!” – Peter Kuper, Mad cartoonist for Spy vs Spy







Paul Fleischman’s Eyes Wide Open: Going Behind the Environmental Headlines (Candlewick, 2014; Gr 7 Up)



Eyes Wide Open looks at five key issues: population, consumption, energy, food, and climate,drawing on history, psychology, sociology, and the role of money to explain both environmental issues and the human reaction to such issues, with a particular focus on “defense mechanisms,” such as denialism, projection, and regression.



The book was an early catalyst in the creation of #globaltl hashtag and the Google+ Community of teacher-librarians interested in connecting students and schools through online collaborative projects.
The book includes a brief essay on “How to Weigh Information” in the back matter. The essay describes ways that readers can become active investigators, reading critically with an eye on the source. Photos, headlines, and references to related books, documentaries, articles, and websites appear throughout.

Cultural Meaning in Moving Monuments

Cultural Meaning in Moving Monuments | digital citizenship | Scoop.it

"Ever since I researched the meanings of monuments in the cultural landscape in Mexico City, I’ve been fascinated by the cultural politics of memory and heritage. The removal of a statue is a cultural 180, acknowledging what was once honored and revered is now something that is not worthy of that distinction. This sort of change is not without protests on both sides and a cultural rearticulation of who 'we' are when 'we' make a public memorial."


Via Seth Dixon
Bonnie Bracey Sutton's insight:

I have been to South Africa. The country is very still divided in many ways. My question is do our American students even know the history and geography of Africa? Do they know how the Europeans partitioned the continent ( divvied it up and laid claim to regions ) and that they did this across tribal lands to cause difficulty.

 

I understand the Rhodes scholarship, but it would be good for students and teachers to have ideationa scaffolding to understand the problems of today caused by practices of yesterday.

Seth Dixon's curator insight, April 14, 7:40 PM

Cecil Rhodes was the namesake for the Rhodes scholarship at Oxford University and the colonial names of Zambia (Northern Rhodesia) and Zimbabwe (Southern Rhodesia).  He was deeply connected to British colonialism and was one of the most ambitious colonizers that expanded the British Empire.  This week a statue of Cecil Rhodes on the University of Cape Town campus was removed.  See the BBC article, Yahoo News!, and PRI podcastfor more details


Questions to Ponder: Why do you think this monument to Cecil Rhodes was established in 1934?  Why was it removed in 2015?  What does this say about South African politics and culture?  How might we characterize the supporters and opponents of the statue?

There's a lesson here in the symbols of conflict resolution....what symbolic monuments do we have to move to solve social conflicts?
