Infographic: Citizenship in the digital age

Infographic: Citizenship in the digital age | Ed tech | Scoop.it
Digital citizenship is not so different from traditional citizenship. We still need to guide students to be kind, respectful and responsible. What’s new is teaching them how to apply these values to the realities of the digital age.

David Thornburg: Lectures Didn't Work in 1350—and They Still Don't Work Today

David Thornburg: Lectures Didn't Work in 1350—and They Still Don't Work Today | Ed tech | Scoop.it
A conversation with David Thornburg about designing a better classroom

 

“Of all the places I remember from my childhood,” David Thornburg writes, “school was the most depressing.”  The now award-winning educational futurist and creator of the “educational holodeck,” Thornburg’s early experience in the classroom prompted him to help others rethink traditional classroom design. In his latest book, From the Campfire to the Holodeck: Creating Engaging and Powerful 21st Century Learning Environments, Thornburg outlines four learning models: the traditional “campfire,” or lecture-based design; the “watering hole,” or social learning; the “cave,” a place to quietly reflect; and “life”—where ideas are tested.

Great points here - I think I want to read his books

Annette Schmeling's comment, November 20, 2013 10:59 AM
Engagement is the key. When the teacher, or professor, themselves have fully engaged with the material and used multiple senses in mastering the content they are more apt to spark the passion and interest for others. Even their lectures will be more engaging.

Out With the Degree, In With the Badge: How Badges Motivate Learning And 7 Tips To Use It Right - InformED

Out With the Degree, In With the Badge: How Badges Motivate Learning And 7 Tips To Use It Right - InformED | Ed tech | Scoop.it

Catherine Lacey, a student at the University of Western Australia, is a Level 40 Hero in biology.

 That’s her ranking on OpenStudy, where she spends up to 30 hours per week answering homework questions posed by students around the world.

Hero is the hardest badge to attain on the site, indicating considerable time spent helping other students. And Lacey doesn’t just help beginners—one of the many merit badges she’s earned from OpenStudy is for tutoring students in MIT open biology courses.

Only 20 years old, Lacey says she hasn’t yet added the Hero badge to her resume, but plans to include it if she finds herself applying for a teaching job post-graduation.

I have just finished skimming through the content of this handy guide and thought It would be a great addition to the resources we have compiled in Digital Citizenship Resource section here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning. The guide is well illustrated and uses a simple and jargon-free language that your students would find very useful.
