How Do Teachers, Parents Approach Online Safety? | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | Scoop.it
Today, children in elementary school often have just as much, if not more, technology know-how than adults. But as children’s tech use increases, and as they spend more time online, digital citizenship and safety issues become even more important.

Nothing hidden about these "tips & tricks" - just standard every day library functions. This is not new, most these functions have been used since Win95, the days before we see the net as we do now. Nonetheless, whatever it takes for people to finally catch up and educate themselves about easier searching techniques!

Do you remember the days before you carried around the world in your pocket?

 

That would have been before Tim Berners-Lee, a British computer scientist, submitted his proposal for what became the Web back in March of 1989. The Web turned 25 years old this week and it's hard to imagine an invention or process that has changed our lives as much in recent history, impacting everything from political movements to our love lives.

Alison D. Gilbert's curator insight, March 22, 2014 4:51 PM

For one thing, I hated going to the library. So I am much happier having all the information in books (and more) right at my finger tips, all the time.

The Internet Has Become the External Hard Drive for Our Memories: Scientific American

The Internet Has Become the External Hard Drive for Our Memories: Scientific American | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | Scoop.it

 

For millennia humans have relied on one another to recall the minutiae of our daily goings-on. Now we rely on “the cloud”—and it is changing how we perceive and remember the world around us

 

A couple receives an invitation to a birthday party. Through long experience, each intuitively knows what to do next. One partner figures out whether the dress code is formal or casual. The other makes a mental note of the time and place of the gathering so that they don't forget.

 

To some degree, we all delegate mental tasks to others. When presented with new information, we automatically distribute responsibility for remembering facts and concepts among members of our particular social group, recalling some things on our own and trusting others to remember the rest. When we can't remember the right name or how to fix a broken machine, we simply turn to someone else charged with being in the know. If your car is making a clunking noise, you call Ray, your gearhead friend. can't remember who starred in Casablanca? Marcie, the movie buff, knows. All types of knowledge, from the prosaic to the arcane, get apportioned among members of the group, whether the social unit in question is a married couple or the accounting department of a multinational corporation. In each case, we don't only know the information stored within our own minds; we also “know” what kinds of information other members of our social group are entrusted with remembering.
