Ratemash is an awesome community with members within universities mostly in the UK and around the world who like to go out, party and enjoy themselves.
Fiona Harvey's insight:

This is here because some students were furious that they had been included.  This highlights the need to ensure that you are aware of the information that is available to others.  This site links to the students Facebook pages (which they thought was locked down).

The community that built the largest encyclopedia in history is shrinking, even as more people and Internet services depend on it than ever. Can it be revived, or is this the end of the Web’s idealistic era?

Yes you do need a profile picture and its worth it to take the time to think about how you want to portray yoiurself. More times than not, a baseball cap on the beach just doesn't do it.

VISUAL LITERACY

Demonstrate the ability to interpret, recognize, appreciate, and understand information presented through visible actions, objects and symbols, natural or man-made

 

Peter Evans's curator insight, November 26, 2013 5:47 AM

I'd suggest a lot of the more innovative university programmes are already doing much of what is suggested here. One thing to emphasise is supporting students to use digital tools specifically for learning as they generally already know how to use these tools. In otherwords, while students may often be digitally competent, they are often less digitally literate in terms of learning processes. Also, what refer to PDAs - surely old tech?

Miep Carstensen's curator insight, December 1, 2013 8:14 PM

Sound advice for teachers to incorprate these core competencies in their teaching programmes.
