Innovations in Education - Teachable Moments for Digital Citizenship

Innovations in Education - Teachable Moments for Digital Citizenship | Educational Technology Grab Bag | Scoop.it

"In preparing for professional development on the topic of Digital Citizenship ...I have been searching for a resource to share on the importance of modeling these skills...I know that teaching in isolation is not usually as effective as taking advantage of teachable moments – when students are actually online and pursuing a learning task to reinforce appropriate behavior, safety, and application of skills."

A good infographic for teachers as they integrate technology. Modelling digital citizenship authentically through teachable moments!

Beth Dichter's curator insight, June 7, 6:37 PM

Did you know that the Common Core standards do not require students to learn to write in cursive, but they do require that students become proficient at keyboarding? Recent research is showing that it is important for students to write in cursive. Why?

Quoting from the article:

“When we write, a unique neural circuit is automatically activated,” said Stanislas Dehaene, a psychologist at the Collège de France in Paris. “There is a core recognition of the gesture in the written word, a sort of recognition by mental simulation in your brain.

There are some states that are still requiring cursive. One wonders if this new research will lead to a shift in Common Core standards.

The 15 rules in the infographic are wise to follow not only on online discussion boards, but may be considered a foundation to build your digital identity, tattoo, footprint...you choose the word that works best for you.

With younger students we may need to modify some language or introduce the rules over a period of time, helping them to learn just what good netiquette is.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, June 5, 6:51 PM

This post discusses the need to define the outcome you expect before you design your project (understanding by design where you begin at the end product and work backwards). The focus is on the iPad, but the questions he proposes for students to answer should work with most digital apps or online tools we use in our classrooms. Within the post you will find five projects that are designed with Bloom's taxonomy in mind. The projects are:

* Create a movie

* Create a podcast

* Create an interactive book

* Create a presentation

* Create a PDF

Of more interest (to me) are the steps he suggests you follow as you create the workflow that students will need to follow.

Clearly define the outcome providing an explanation that the students will understand and also define the context, providing sufficient information that the student know what they will need to accomplish.

When you click through to the post, you will see that each of the projects includes five areas that students work through. In each project students will begin with a clear concept of what they need to remember. They then move up (Bloom's taxonomy) to understanding, with another task to complete. From there they look at applying and analyzing, with additional questions and specified work to be accomplished. This is followed by analyzing and creating, and as a final component collaboration comes into play. In each of these areas there are one or more iPad apps recommended.

16 Strategies For Integrating The Habits of Mind In The Classroom

16 Strategies For Integrating The Habits of Mind In The Classroom | Educational Technology Grab Bag | Scoop.it

"In outcomes-based learning environments, we generally see three elements in play: 1) learning objectives or targets are created from given standards; 2) instruction of some kind is given; and then 3) learning results are assessed. These assessments offer data to inform the revision of further planned instruction. Rinse and repeat.

But lost in this clinical sequence are the Habits of Mind that (often predictably) lead to success or failure in the mastery of given standards. In fact, it is not in the standards or assessments, but rather these personal habits where success or failure — in academic terms — actually begin."

"Why do so many students choose Wikipedia when asked to find information on the Internet?

I believe the answer is that Wikipedia is like the McDonalds of the Internet, you can always find it and you  know what you’re going to get. Quite frankly, I like Wikipedia because it provides students with a starting point for research and I am particularly fond of the way I’ve seen so many students develop their own method of research by using the links at the bottom to find more information."
