Can Teachers Be Friends With Students Using Social Media?

Can Teachers Be Friends With Students Using Social Media? | Digital Citizenship is Elementary | Scoop.it

"Wherever you are as a person and as a professional, you are still a teacher. It's a high calling that we've gone after. Whenever and wherever you are, seek to model the best of your professional and personal self. Keep a sense of professional distance.

 

A professional persona.

 

Professional distance doesn't mean be a heartless, soulless automaton. Certainly, care and love and concern for the young people in our work is paramount. But it does mean be intentional and purposeful about the ways that you present yourself, wherever you may happen to be." ~ Bud Hunt

Infographics seem to be a real trend today, with new ones popping up daily on all sorts of subjects. From mortgages to ice cream, estimating software to infographics about infographics, there is very little now that hasn't been 'visualised' in some form. Many people don't realise that the term information graphic, or 'infographic' was first coined over 100 years ago, with the Coxcomb chart by Florence Nightingale in 1857 being one of earliest recognised examples. They have existed in many forms since then, but only in the past few years have infographics developed into the art form we know today.

Instant Resources: The Importance of Media Literacy

"While young people have access to the internet and other media that any generation in history, they do not necessarily possess the ethics, the intellectual skills, or the predisposition to critically analyze and evaluate their relationship with these technologies or the information the encounter. Good hand/eye co-ordination and the ability to multitask are not substitutes for critical thinking"

Moving at the Speed of Creativity - FAQs About iPads and Media in the Classroom

Moving at the Speed of Creativity - FAQs About iPads and Media in the Classroom | Digital Citizenship is Elementary | Scoop.it

"During the June and July 2012 sessions of the 3 day workshop “iPad Media Camp,” I asked participants to post questions they had about our curriculum as well as related topics using a Google form. Instead of just answering questions in class, I created narrated slideshows using the iPad app “Explain Everything” and posted the videos to YouTube. This way these videos can be used in class (including upcoming sessions) as well as shared with others who couldn’t attend in person. Below you’ll find the questions addressed in each screencast video as well as the videos themselves."

BYO policy takes technology out of pockets and into the open

BYO policy takes technology out of pockets and into the open | Digital Citizenship is Elementary | Scoop.it
SINCE the beginning of this term, students in years 7 to 12 at Ravenswood have been allowed to bring in their own piece of technology from home to use at school.

According to the school's director of technology, Elizabeth Westley, the policy is proving to be successful.

''The girls are so enthusiastic and positive about it. Rather than have devices tucked away in pockets and secretly looking things up, there is now an environment of trust and openness,'' she says.
