Computer Safety for Kids & Teens

Computer Safety for Kids & Teens | Digital Literacy | Scoop.it

By Emma Kavanagh

 

The Internet provides us with an abundant amount of educational information, entertainment, and can connect us with people throughout the entire world. As wonderful as the Internet can be, it can also be a dangerous place for children and teens. When using the Internet, one must be careful about sharing any form of personal information because unfortunately the Internet can be a platform for cyber criminals to target kids, teens, and young adults. The most common types of criminals found on the web include (online predators), identity thieves, cyberbullies, and hackers. In order to protect your children and loved to the fullest extent one must take all the necessary precautions when using a computer.

8 Steps To Great Digital Storytelling - Edudemic

8 Steps To Great Digital Storytelling - Edudemic | Digital Literacy | Scoop.it

"Stories bring us together, encourage us to understand and empathize, and help us to communicate. Long before paper and books were common and affordable, information passed from generation to generation through this oral tradition of storytelling. Consider Digital Storytelling as the 21st Century version of the age-old art of storytelling with a twist: digital tools now make it possible for anyone to create a story and share it with the world."

Storys are a key part of any instructional design, and in other areas of professional development as well.

Like it a lot, but am worried that there's a lack of privacy, if we're talking about young learners.

How To Combat Student Plagiarism - Edudemic

How To Combat Student Plagiarism - Edudemic | Digital Literacy | Scoop.it

As teachers, when we assign a research project, we often focus on the end product: the research essay, presentation, etc. However, students (especially young students) do not automatically know how to conduct meaningful research. Our modern students are used to Googling answers. They have grown accustomed to information being readily available. However, as academics, we know that research isn’t a  fast process. It’s slow and deliberate. As a teacher, I need to intentionally slow my students down during this exercise. I do this by breaking down a larger project into more manageable chunks and focusing on the process.

Yes, which is what is meant by "plagiarism proof" assignments. I would also add that it is essential to practice paraphrasing and do it effectively by using all four skills. I did a poster presentation on this topic: http://www.teachingenglish.org.uk/blogs/aisha-ertugrul/preventing-plagiarism-poster

Information is all around us, but very little of what we digest daily is in the form of a traditional textbook. Analyzing text structures is a major theme of the common core literacy standards.

Julie King's insight:

Students used wikis to discuss and reflect on infographics. Thinkfinity is one source students can use to annotate and interact with infographics and other visual content.
