Deborah Fillman's curator insight, November 6, 2013 2:06 PM

Love the idea of teaching kids digital "self-defense," rather than focusing on erecting barriers they might see as challenges to overcome, or "problems" to solve. They not only need to guard against bullies and predators, but also that  that they have a "digital footprint" that will follow them throughout their lives. 

 

Tina Jameson's curator insight, November 7, 2013 2:07 PM

Prepare students for their online future: this freely available online tool allows students to 'play' and work their way through different levels, building up vital understanding of 'digital footprints' and cyber safety in the process.  Seems to be aimed at a junior primary to middle school level.

 

This article explains how one Librarian has used the tool successfully, and provides links to the 'Digital Passport' program.

Llandrillo Library's curator insight, November 29, 2013 2:02 AM

Having to earn a digital passport or badge before you can get access to email or laptops/tablets in school is a great way of spreading the digital citizenship message and making sure everyone has had the same standard of training. This would be useful approach across all sectors, not just primary.

Combined with the rise of flipped and blended learning methodologies, it’s natural that today’s educators are seeking innovative ways to take advantage of video."

Do You Love Science? [infographic]

Do You Love Science? [infographic] | Education Matters - (tech and non-tech) | Scoop.it
Every time I am asked anything about science, all I can think of are beakers and Bunsen burners and am quick to deny my interest in the subject matter. Well, this infographic is out to change this backward thinking. As it turns out, I actually do love science! Why? Because I love outer space, animals, people, cooking, and volcanoes! Little did I know that all these loves of mine fall under science education. Now when someone talks to me about science I will think along the lines of astrologer, ornithologist, nutritionist, seismologist, or population ecologist!
