The problem in a pre-programmed system of teaching is that you don't have the time or classroom availability to use Google Docs effectively.

How To Tackle Digital Citizenship During The First 5 Days Of School - Edudemic

How To Tackle Digital Citizenship During The First 5 Days Of School - Edudemic | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
Digital citizenship is not a one time discussion. It is an ongoing process that needs to be taught to all grade levels and to all stakeholders.

Via Dr. Susan Bainbridge, reuvenwerber
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

The first weeks of school are dedicated to teaching the basics. You show kids specifically how to act in the classroom. It's also the time to show them specifically how to be responsible digital citizens.

Curation as Digital Literacy Practice

Curation as Digital Literacy Practice | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Ibrar Bhatt writes: "Digital curation therefore is not just about finding relevant material, although that is a significant part of it, but is also about creating a specific and unique experience by utilising the resulting materials which then become contextualised within a new space. A curator, therefore, whether she is a journalist-by-proxy such as Popova or a student completing an assignment in a classroom, not only collects and interprets, but also creates a new experience with it. In this respect, curation is a process of problem solvingre-assembling,re-creating, and stewardship of other people’s writing."

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

I learned geography and history from collecting stamps and coins.  The same principal holds true when you collect information on the internet. Curation is not just bookmarking. It's selecting, categorizing, synthesizing.  Digital literacy is a byproduct of the curation process.  Blend your curriculum with curation and see engagement soar.

This would create an interesting twist or option to the practice of assigning an essay as completion of a unit or topic of study.

Curation of information for educational content and context: article worth reading

Bodil Hernesvold's curator insight, August 25, 2014 5:05 AM

More on curation. Creating new content from old. When should you blog about it, and when should you tweet?
