Maria João Loureiro's curator insight, February 1, 3:37 PM

Em síntese, as competências a desenvolver (qualquer que seja o nível de ensino em diferentes patamares, diria eu), relacionam-se com a literacia da informação (com e sem recurso as tecnologias mais recentes), ou seja, pesquisa, seleção e tratamento de informação (para a transformar em conhecimento - diferente de copy/paste) e comunicação (oral e escrita) de ideias, de si próprio e do que faz (de forma rigorosa e atraente), tendo em conta as normas de privacidade e ética (que em contextos online são bastas vezes descuidadas) . Parece-me ficar a faltar outras tantas, como a resolução de problemas, a colaboração, o aprender a aprender...

I could help teach students these skills in the context of their other coursework.

CrazyConversations's curator insight, September 27, 12:50 PM

These most needed skills are here right now. In competitive business environments, finding information quickly is a necessity. Judging the quality of information is crucial to decisionmaking.

This is a graphic example for the article, but the site is a cybersafety site in the UK and has lots of information for parents about online safety for their children. It also tests their knowledge.

Rachael Johnston's curator insight, October 20, 10:53 PM

It is important to build your own brand and to promote yourself positively. You want to be polite to other users and make sure you have nothing on your profile that could be damaging to your reputation. This includes swear words, inappropriate or rude comments, and pictures and videos of drinking or drugs.  This is really important for graduating students who, most likely, need to go through and delete pictures that have been tagged in one Facebook

Make sure you give credit to others if you share something of theirs. Also make sure you are writing your own posts and not just sharing others. However, make sure you are posting valuable and relevant information. Listen and think before you write and make sure you are using proper english. 

It is okay to have debates on social netowrks with other users, everybody has the right ti voice their opinion, but don't let things get too personal or nasty. 

It is also essential to understand that there are also hings to be very careful of when using social networks. For one, people are not always who they seem. You should also make sure you do not assume a false identity. It is important to keep some kind of professionalism, but don't change yourself or hide who you really are. 

You must also make sure you are abiding by the rules of the network and report others who dont. 

Last but certainly not least, be very careful about who you share things with. There are certain places to share certain things. For example, you may post something bout your personal life in your Facebook status, but it is not appropriate to do so on your LinkedIn profile. Do not share pictures and videos with strangers, you never know how they will use these.

Check out how one might design a technology course for 6th graders if your goal is to use "LEARNFLOW which supports the unconscious, smooth and effortless flow of learning."

This post provides a visual of how a course designed with LEARNFLOW in mind might be organized. It is based on Alan November's work on tutorial creation which "empowers learners...to become creators and contributors."

The image above may provide you with ideas on how you might work with students this school year with technology.

7 Academic Search Engines Not Named Google

7 Academic Search Engines Not Named Google | education | Scoop.it

"When we search, we often first reach for Google–and rightfully so.

But by using Google students and teachers are unwittingly bending to the will of webmasters who are experts at SEO (search engine optimization), which can mean that you find what they want you to find rather than what you really need. So what to do?

Thankfully, there are options for 21st century learners..."

To Google or not to Google...that is the question. I fall on the side of teaching students how to use other search engines for a number of reasons including tracking and filter bubbles. This post explores seven academic search engines. 
A short description of each search engine is provided as well as links to each. There is also a link to an earlier post that looked at 100 databases and search indexes.
