Case Study: 21CIF Scoop.it Magazine

Case Study: 21CIF Scoop.it Magazine | HandyTools For EFL Teachers | Scoop.it
Teaching Information Fluency describes the skills and dispositions of information fluency adept searchers. Readers will receive in-depth information on what it takes to locate, evaluate, and ethically use digital information. The book realistically examines the abilities of Internet searchers today in terms of their efficiency and effectiveness in finding online information, evaluating it and using it ethically. Since the majority of people develop these skills on their own, rather than being taught, the strategies they invent may suffice for simple searches, but for more complex tasks, such as those required by academic and professional work, the average person’s performance is adequate only about 50% of the time. The book is laid out in five parts: an introduction to the problem and how search engine improvements are not sufficient to be of real help, speculative searching, investigative searching, ethical use and applications of information fluency. The intent of the book is to provide readers ways to improve their performance as consumers of digital information and to help teachers devise useful ways to integrate information fluency instruction into their teaching, since deliberate instruction is needed to develop fluency. Since it is unlikely that dedicated class time will be available for such instruction, the approach taken embeds information fluency activities into classroom instruction in language arts, history and science. Numerous model lessons and resources are woven into the fabric of the text, including think-alouds, individual and group search challenges, discussions, assessments and curation, all targeted to Common Core State Standards as well as information fluency competencies.

Understanding curation by creating and using a Scoop.it magazine is one of the projects in EDUC 760: E-Learning for Educators.  Constructing knowledge by skillfully tagging, annotating, and sharing information is a way to filter and use the ocean of information we live and teach with. 8-)

Kaspersky: Internet of Things means Internet of Threats | CyberSecurity | DigitalCitizenShip | eSkills

Kaspersky: Internet of Things means Internet of Threats | CyberSecurity | DigitalCitizenShip | eSkills | HandyTools For EFL Teachers | Scoop.it
The way Eugene Kaspersky sees it, there may soon come a day when you wake up and your coffeemaker refuses to brew anything – or worse, will only brew decaf – until you pay up on the ransomware that has infected it.

Kaspersky, CEO of Kaspersky Lab, told some of the company’s top partners at its annual North American Partner Conference here this weekend that he believes IoT stands not only for “Internet of Things,” but also for “Internet of Threats.” The emergence of IP and intelligence in an increasing number of previously disconnected devices will lead to new and novel attack vectors, the executive predicted.

“It’s not just the pleasures of this world, the benefits and the beauty, that we have to think about,” Kaspersky told partners. “We also have to think about the other side, the bad guys, as well.”

And while the coffee maker was a bit of a perhaps a tongue-in-cheek example, Kaspersky said he does see a variety of attack opportunities on devices that have heretofore not been connected to the network. The first one to be hit, he posited, will be right in our living rooms.

Did you know that you can create a quiz in PowerPoint? You can create a simple quiz in PowerPoint using just hyperlinks. It’s simple because it doesn’t require any programming and you can’t grade it.

Students take the quiz in Slide Show view. When they choose the wrong answer, they go back to the question to try again. When they choose the right answer, they go to the next question.
