Should Schools Use Social Networks for Instruction?

Should Schools Use Social Networks for Instruction? | Digital Citizenship in Schools | Scoop.it
My school is scared of Facebook, and I know it's not alone. It's blocked on all of the computers, and for good reason, too. Facebook use at school brings up concerns over privacy, as well as concerns that students would just waste their time on Facebook instead of using school computers constructively.

Beatbullying - Shaping attitudes, changing behaviours

Beatbullying - Shaping attitudes, changing behaviours | Digital Citizenship in Schools | Scoop.it
Beatbullying works with children and young people across the UK to provide them with all important opportunities to make positive and lasting changes to their lives and outlook. In particular, we work intensively with those so deeply affected by bullying that they can barely face going to school that next morning. We aim to make deep changes in attitude of those young people that bully, working with them to take responsibility and a sense of ownership over their actions, building foundations for change and improvement in their life chances and opportunities. For us, it's all about shaping attitudes and changing behaviours.

A Teaching Moment: Introducing Students to their Cyber-selves | Digital Citizenship in Schools | Scoop.it

Every term I struggle with a conversation I have with my students at the start of the class. Because I teach about social media, I have a frank discussion with my undergraduate students about protecting their reputation. This term, I did something a little different.

Many parents can also not understand why teens do not just turn off their mobiles or computers to get away from the issues, but for this generation of children they feel cut-off from the world. It would be like asking them to take out an eye!

Status Update: What's Facebook's Effect on Kids? | Digital Citizenship in Schools | Scoop.it

Rosen has already collected some early evidence that suggests that Facebook use may somehow be connected to narcissistic behavior, alcohol dependence, and other psychiatric disorders. But he has also found evidence that Facebook use may be associated with increases in virtual empathy—the ability to consider someone else's emotional state from a distance.

That Facebook is hugely distracting is hardly stop-the-presses kind of news, but parents might be dismayed to learn that the social-media site can hobble learning and make kids less healthy and more depressed.

The students did not access illegal material like pornography or change school records, rather they communicated and collaborated using social media.

Working To Beat Cyberbullying

Working To Beat Cyberbullying | Digital Citizenship in Schools | Scoop.it

Cyberbullying can take many forms, many of which can be very tough to spot for parents, professionals and child support workers. These can range from actions such as posting up rude, cruel or threatening messages on social networking sites such as Facebook or Twitter, to posting photos of classmates online.

 

Some bullies will go to extraordinary lengths to victimize other children, setting up websites with derogatory comments about peers, cataloguing physical acts of bullying and sharing them with friends, or breaking in to e-mail accounts to send embarrassing or vicious material to other people.

Tech Transformation: The learning goes on and on

Tech Transformation: The learning goes on and on | Digital Citizenship in Schools | Scoop.it

One of the interesting links shared during this keynote was to a Prezi by David White of Oxford University who talks about digital visitors and digital residents. This is not quite the same concept as Mark Prensky's digital natives and digital immigrants. When the focus is more how how students are using technologies rather than what they are using, then how they see their online lives differs - some see it as a place to live (residents), others see it as a collection of useful tools (visitors). It's not about academic or technical skills, it's about culture and motivation.
