A great visual that will capture students' attention when it comes to citing sources

This is a quick guide to what's palgiarized and what's acceptable paraphrasing. Good for middle school students, and especially for Harry Potter fans!

Communication, Knowledge and Information in the Human Ecosystem

Communication, Knowledge and Information in the Human Ecosystem | Freedom in a Digital World | Scoop.it

In the Digital Age, the age of Communication, Information and Knowledge, the possibility to capture, express, observe, visualize and understand the patterns for behaviour, emotion, opinion, expression, movement and more, potentially for hundreds of millions of people at a time, has brought the term “ethnography” in the spotlight for both academic and popular crowds.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, August 1, 3:09 PM

In the 2 1/2 years that I've been curation, I haven't come across an article that I didn't quite know how to capture. It is a challenging read, but there are some interesting ideas about awareness of one’s position within a relational ecosystem.

Eli Levine's curator insight, August 23, 10:15 AM

All is perspective.  We each and all have different interpretations of the reality that is around us, because we each and all have different brains and sense organs which pick up and interpret the reality that is around us.

 

Some opinions and beliefs, however, are more accurately sensing the real world than others.  Furthermore, the only appropriate way to pursue information and data about the real world is to be like an interrogator, seeking the truth, and a gold prospector, panning for the valuable and relevant information in your given area.  It's when there is open communication, honest dialogue, and a spirit of cooperation that we get the end results that are useful to us, as policy makers, and as social scientists, trying to uncover the truth about our world.  All other perspectives, attitudes, and methods, are most likely bunk and produce bunk relative to our common reality.

 

Reality is a dictatorship.  It simply is and does not care what you think feel, believe, or hope for.  You only obey it, or you die.  That's my new insight into the world.  Screw post-modernism.

Why Scoopit Is Becoming An Indispensable Learning Tool

Why Scoopit Is Becoming An Indispensable Learning Tool | Freedom in a Digital World | Scoop.it
Additionally, using Scoop.it will meet multiple standards (Common Core and NETS-S) across the curriculum. Students use critical thinking skills to collect, evaluate and analyze content; they may identify trends from discourse; they develop writing skills in original expression; and they interact, communicate and publish to a global audience. But perhaps more importantly, students practice digital citizenship and personal responsibility to lifelong learning.

Ryan Burwell's curator insight, July 2, 2013 4:28 PM

Current historians reconstruct the past by sifting through the most common of fragments- bits of pottery, spearheads, and refuse casually discarded by their original users. Historians in the future will be able to do the same with digital content, which King eloquently notes is stored "in this Twitter archive like a form of digital sediment".
