Authenticity, accountability and data privacy | process.arts | eLearning tools | Scoop.it

"...Rather than just thinking of anonymity as a dangerous mechanism that encourages bad online behaviour, we might want to think of it as a form of resistance. At least we should consider how the tethering of our real identities and connections to our online profiles might compromise our data privacy. It is not just a question of what content you want to display to which of your followers – your invisible audiences are the platforms themselves."

Five-Minute Film Festival: Teaching Digital Citizenship

Five-Minute Film Festival: Teaching Digital Citizenship | eLearning tools | Scoop.it

VideoAmy explores the topic of digital citizenship with this playlist of 14 short videos on the importance of online safety, manners, privacy, and responsibility.

 

"Digital citizenship" is an umbrella term that covers a whole host of important issues. Broadly, it's the guidelines for responsible, appropriate behavior when one is using technology. But specifically, it can cover anything from "netiquette" to cyberbullying; technology access and the digital divide; online safety and privacy; copyright, plagiarism, and digital law, and more. In fact, some programs that teach digital citizenship have outlined no less than nine elements that intersect to inform a well-equipped digital citizen. It's an overwhelming array of skills to be taught and topics to explore.

23 Things for Professional Development: Schedule for CPD23 2012

23 Things for Professional Development: Schedule for CPD23 2012 | eLearning tools | Scoop.it

Here are the Things that we will be exploring during the 23 Things for Professional Development course this summer. There is real a mixture of stuff: some web 2.0 and/or social media gadgets and gizmos, and some ways of developing your career by more 'traditional', less technology-focussed, means. Throughout the programme will be emphasising how these Things can help your professional development, although you're likely to find lots of tools useful in other ways, too! We are taking the Things at a slightly slower pace this time around, although the original posts from last year will remain in place if you prefer to go at your own pace.

PollDaddy is the Daddy! embed audio in the questionnaire | eLearning tools | Scoop.it

"I got a request today about online survey software programs from a student. They needed to create an online survey which included audio files. I thought this would be a relatively easy task, but no. Finding a free one proved difficult...

 

...Eventually I stumbled on PollDaddy, which to my surprise is a WordPress product. It comes with the usual “standard” free survey options, but crucially it allows you to embed audio to the questionnaire."

"The This Is Me project looked at ways of helping people to learn more about what makes up their Digital Identity (DI) and at ways of developing and enhancing it. “Digital Identity” is made up of multiple parts – it isn’t just what we have published about ourself on the web, but also includes things other people have published about us.

 

The JISC funded Digitally Ready project, part of the Developing Digital Literacies programme has enabled us to further the work done on the Eduserv funded This Is Me project."

The Teacher’s Guide To Digital Citizenship - free curriculum

The Teacher’s Guide To Digital Citizenship - free curriculum | eLearning tools | Scoop.it
How you act online is important. Not just because everything is stored, backed up, and freely available to anyone with a keyboard. But because your online reputation is actually just your reputation. There’s really no difference between online and offline anymore.

 

In an effort to keep everyone behaving, Microsoft has just unveiled a new (free) curriculum that’s all about digital citizenship, intellectual property rights, and creative content. It offers cross-curricular classroom activities that align with the AASL and ISTE national academic standards. So far, more than 6,500 people have registered to use the curriculum. No matter how you feel about Microsoft, this free offering is worth checking out. You’ll have to register an account but after that it’s easy to find, select, download, and implement some of the objectives presented.
