Classic:  Different cultures challenge authority in different ways | Allon Shevat | diversity, inclusion, multicultural ed, and social justice | Scoop.it

..Do not assume that agreement with what you say is real; do not assume that those who challenge you are against you; and don’t ignore gossip but factor it in in societies where harmony is more valued than “truth”.

Explicit hardball challenging: Gilad (m, Israel) argues with his Israeli boss all the time. ...US based colleagues who have observed Gilad believe that Gilad shows no respect for his boss. However, once a directive is given, Gilad will carry it out to a T, never trying to stand by passively as things go bad.  Gilad and his boss play on the same soccer team and socialize together at the beach.

   

Pragmatic Controlled  Disagreement: Karen (f USA) believes that her American boss has made several critical errors over the last month. Karen i...asks some mildly  “challenging” questions after adding “well, let me play the devil’s advocate”. ...When one of her boss’s directives goes bad, Karen will be remain composed, and not go out of her way to help, allowing things “to take their course”.  Karen needs her boss’s recommendations after she leaves to “further her career”. Karen and her boss socialize only at the Christmas party.

Allon lists four examples in the full post.  It's a good test of your own degree of enthnocentricism to notice if you identify with the biases and blind spots he identifies so well in his posts.    His posts are very helpful for building your global citizenship and for the USA, minimizing the inept, ugly American syndrome abroad.  ~  Deb

Considerations For Teaching Students About Browsers And The Web | diversity, inclusion, multicultural ed, and social justice | Scoop.it

Teaching students about the internet can be bit confusing.  Teachers often shy away from teaching core technology concepts because of this perceived complexity.  Without a game plan and the proper visuals it can be very tricky to explain an abstract system like a computer network.

The Ultimate Guide to Using Tags and Hashtags Effectively

The Ultimate Guide to Using Tags and Hashtags Effectively | diversity, inclusion, multicultural ed, and social justice | Scoop.it
Researching the right keywords, expressions, tags and hashtags is more essential than ever. Here's a detailed guide to using them to your advantage.

 

Ultimately, tags and hashtags have the same purpose – to make you findable on websites loaded with content and to draw people’s attention to whatever it is you want them to see. As I always advocate, however, it’s about relevancy.

.

Both tags and hashtags play their role in the SEO of your website and content, because they are strongly related to the core keywords your website and organization are based on. Keywords with the right tags built upon them will ensure the long-term drive of relevant traffic to your website.

.

Hashtags will keep your content appearing in relevant popular streams.

A New Great Digital Citizenship Poster for Your Class

A New Great Digital Citizenship Poster for Your Class | diversity, inclusion, multicultural ed, and social justice | Scoop.it

Raising a digitally savvy and responsible student does require  explicit modelling  and instruction on how to deal with the vagaries of Internet. In an age where everything you do online leaves  indelible marks (digital footprints)  that can be accessed and viewed by anyone , knowing how and what to share and with whom to share it become digital imperatives that every student should be aware of. This kind of knowledge is at the core of the digital citizenship concept.

Technology 101: What Do We Need To Know About The Future We're Creating? - Hybrid Pedagogy

Technology 101: What Do We Need To Know About The Future We're Creating? - Hybrid Pedagogy | diversity, inclusion, multicultural ed, and social justice | Scoop.it
If we don't already know the answers to these questions, what do we need to know to design, deploy, control, and live humanely with the tools we are creating?

 

Where are we going? Do we want to go there? Is there anything we can do about it? I have written this because I hope we can think together about where these questions lead. Perhaps there are solutions that can only be found by many of us, working together.

Thinking critically about the technosphere we inhabit, which defines who we are and dictates how we live and die, is scary — like thinking about performing surgery on yourself. Your internal denial alarms are going off already, I know. But I urge you to repress the urge to rise to the defense of penicillin and civilization, and consider how I came to rethink my attitudes.

You’re reading this on the web, after all. I do all the HTML myself. I upload it to the server. I do a little PhotoShop, a little Unix. I’m not an archgeek, but neither am I totally unaware of how this new stuff works. It is possible to think critically about technology without running off to the woods — although, I must warn you, it is possible that you will never be quite so comfortable again about the moral dimensions of progress and the part we all play in it. I know that I’m not.
