Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, May 31, 2013 9:03 AM

"Siemens argues that connectivism makes sense for a context in which people have relatively access to a very large amount of information (through, e.g., the world wide web–not saying that everyone does have such access, but for those who do, Siemens is claiming, connectivism makes sense), can use technology to store that information rather than needing to have it in their own heads, and in which what counts as “knowledge” changes rapidly such that it becomes obsolete relatively quickly compared to past centuries and even decades (Siemens, 2005a). He claims we need a new learning theory, a new way of understanding how learning and knowledge work, within this sort of context."

Responsible use policies
While a decent School Responsible (or Acceptable) Use Policy can't prevent an incident like this one above from happening, it can provide a school with a means of establishing the parameters for effective and safe use of technology. We have a Responsible Use Policy that is within the students' school diaries that requires signatures from both students and parents at the start of a school year. I have heard of schools who run Cybersafety sessions at the start of a school year with the culminating 'event' being the signing of the Responsible Use Policy.

I absolutely don’t believe that. … I’ve helped with more computers in more schools than anybody else in the world and I [am] absolutely convinced that [it] is by no means the most important thing.

Sharrock's curator insight, May 31, 2013 9:58 AM

No matter what we encounter in the future (and, as the future develops in the "now"), we must further develop our critical thinking skills. But what are these skills? Basically, we need to identify rhetorical fallacies in what we read or hear, and we need to be able to explain why the statement or article is based on a fallacy or why the argument is fallacious. As part of this pursuit, we should be able to appreciate the different kinds of problems we will encounter. Specifically, we should be able appreciate, and maybe even describe, the differences of various kinds of problems and various kinds of solutions to problems. See “Toward a MetaTheory of Problem Solving” by Dave Jonassen (retrieved from http://web.missouri.edu/jonassend/problems.htm) for more detail.

Dated, Embarrassing & Cringeworthy Early Webpage

 

It's not the DEVICE it's the DECISION of the teen that makes a difference! I've been preaching internet safety (now awareness) since 97 and this is one of my most embarrassing early webpages created in 2000 first for Maryland Public Television & later updated for the Horizon Foundation.

There are a LOT of cringeworthy Don'ts there that I don't believe in anymore! I've come to realize that we have to sometimes let kids make the right (or wrong!) choice so that they can learn the right lesson and that the world is NOT filtered we've gotta teach ethics! IN ALL Things not just technology!

 

Or as I said in 2000: "The most effective, reliable, Internet Safety Filter is an Involved, Informed, and Aware Parent  and an Educated and Ethical Kid."*

"Personal choice, with centralized control, in an increasingly data driven, standardized and mechanized learning system, has long been a fantasy for many technocrats desperately wanting to (re)shape K-12 teaching and learning with technology. In this alternate reality, class sizes no longer matter and new staffing patterns emerge. The amount of time students spend in schools becomes irrelevant as brick and mortar structures fade away.  Yet this fantasy disregards the overwhelming parental desire (and societal expectation) that children will gather together to learn."
