Digital Passport™ : a game to become #digitalliterate #mediawijsheid

Deborah Fillman's curator insight, November 6, 2013 5:06 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 5:07 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.

Nice infographic on blended learning.

David Bozetarnik's curator insight, April 30, 2014 11:35 PM

Blended learning has much potential.  However, it is only PART of the solution to why ails education today.  It is not a replacement for funding.  Adequate funding, whether online of f2f, must go hand in hand.  You can't maximize the potential of education while cutting necessary $$$.

Critical Search Skills Students Should Know | Edudemic - Leading Change in Changing Times | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

There is a new digital divide on the horizon. It is not based around who has devices and who does not, but instead the new digital divide will be based around students who know how to effectively find and curate information and those who do not. Helene Blowers has come up with seven ideas about the new digital divide – four of them, the ones I felt related to searching, are listed
