Today, Edmodo is excited to announce a partnership with Common Sense Media, a national non-profit dedicated to helping kids and families thrive in a world of media and technology. As part of our partnership, we have created  a new resource for educators, the “Digital Citizenship Starter Kit,” which includes a series of activities and lessons designed to introduce digital citizenship concepts right in Edmodo. All lessons are based on Common Sense Media’s free K-12 Digital Literacy and Citizenship curriculum.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Here's a back to school life saver from Edmodo & Common Sense Media.  The Getting Started "We the Digital Citizens Pledge" poster is a great visual reminder for your classroom wall (real or virtual). The Digital Citizenship Modules are available for Elementary - Middle - and High School.

Mrs. Price hopes you’ll share the video with your network and inspire other teachers to experience the power of Edmodo for themselves. Though she considered herself technologically-challenged when she first got started, Mrs. Price now knows that Edmodo is so much more than a tool that helps teachers understand the digital language of today’s students; it also allows students to speak up for themselves and to each other.

26 ways to ensure kids have safe & vibrant learning opportunities in & out of the classroom. The Aspen Task Force is here: bit.ly/1oAuCah

 

The digital revolution has transformed almost every aspect of society. No facet of this revolution has more potential than its ability to change the way people learn. The availability of a vast array of knowledge and resources at the click of a mouse or the touch of a screen, together with the ability to connect instantaneously with peers and mentors across the street and across the globe, make possible completely new learning environments and experiences. These opportunities are highly engaging and collaborative, and they are based on learners’ own interests and strengths. Students can truly learn any time, any place and at any pace.

However, our traditional system of education is rooted in a model first developed in the Industrial Age. It assumes that knowledge is transferred from an external source—teachers, books and schools—to a student. Students are grouped by age, and progress is often based on the amount of time they spend in class and not on how much they have learned. In most instances, any learning that takes place outside class does not count for credit, nor is it even formally recognized.

This long-held model is struggling to engage a new generation of students for whom learning is happening all the time—online, off-line, in classrooms, as well as after school, in libraries and at museums. The connected learner can access tutorials, lessons and entire courses online while participating in afterschool programs such as code academies and maker labs.

To maximize these learning opportunities, young people must be fully connected. Students need to connect easily with others who can support their learning and to have the ability to share their ideas widely and safely. They need access to broadband, devices and software as well as to high-quality content and the literacy skills to support their full participation. They need to prepare for the world of bits, networks and entrepreneurship.

I spent 25 years in k-12 education. The vision described in this report has been in my mind since the early 80's. Now is the time to realize the potential of information technology to engage young minds.

"When using iPads with students, consider apps which allow students opportunities to create media which demonstrates understanding and lets them show what they know and how they feel. This is a very engaging, challenging, and meaningful way for students to learn and for teachers to understand and assess what their students comprehend."

Center on Online Learning and Students with Disabilities | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

The Center on Online Learning’s fourth and final webinar for the 2013-14 school year was presented by our very own Dr. Jamie Basham. He presented on “Tech and Apps to Address STEM in Online Learning for Students with Disabilities.” He described how Universal Design for Learning applied to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM), can help teachers (and students) become “learning engineers.” He described the UDL instruction planning process and provided some great potential tools to use including iTunesU, iBooks, MyScript Calculator, Videolicious, and many other resources. Jamie left the audience with lots of tools, ideas, and directions to explore to move their STEM instruction forward.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Here's an online learning activity that will engage and energize your students. It would be a great back to school project. Skype in the Classroom will help you connect with other tech using teachers for a game based exchanged.


National and international connections are waiting to be made.
