Public vs. Private – Should Student Work Be Public On the Web? | The Edublogger | InformationCommunication (ICT) | Scoop.it
Dan Kirsch's insight:

I think the instructor of the class should be given an option to make their students blogs public or private; such as enabling comments or not.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, November 20, 2013 7:57 PM

An audience can be found with private and public blogs. The first is an internal audience within the school and the latter takes us out further. It might be we have to transition, but more importantly what is being learned is critical. If we do not move learning forward, private and public mean very little.

J. Mark Schwanz's curator insight, November 23, 2013 9:37 AM

I absolutely agree and support efforts to update educational publishing policies.  There should be a category for publishing student work internally and externally. Teachers and aides could "curate' which student work gets on the outside of the firewall for the world to see. Schools could have internal and external comment systems for blogs.

Content Curation strategies for Digital Learning

Content Curation strategies for Digital Learning | InformationCommunication (ICT) | Scoop.it
In our digitally connected world, most of us have become curators of content as we utilize the technology tools in our pockets to interact with each other. We practice curation for both personal and professional reasons by saving our favorite links, images, videos, and other resources, which we have either found ourselves or have been shared with us. In turn, we usually share this curated content with each other through social media, email, text messages, etc. We can then carefully curate the information that we assemble and organize on social media, as it collectively becomes our representation of our digital selves. Even this blog is another example of curation, as I often include the links to other sources that I find valuable, and arrange my thoughts, ideas, and illustrations into a cohesive whole.

Although most of us participate in daily content curation, many people frequently make mistakes in the types of content that they share online and damage their reputations and/or digital footprints. The content in these situations may be inappropriate, lack authenticity, or distract from the intended message. These concerns are relevant to both personal and professional attempts at content curation and necessitate a purposeful, focused, and methodic approach to this task

In my last blog post, Curation for Digital Learning, I detailed the reasons why schools and districts should engage in content curation to facilitate digital learning. I also listed the activities that are involved in content curation, specifically within K-12 learning environments. Now, to better nurture digital learning ecosystems, this blog post contains an overview of some specific strategies that schools and districts can undertake to begin, execute, and sustain a successful plan for content curation. I have attempted to list the strategies in order; however, once the process of content curation is initiated by a school district, many activities begin to happen concurrently, and there may be some overlap in timing as different teams and individuals begin to fulfill their roles and responsibilities within that process.

Ella Barresi's curator insight, May 27, 7:17 PM
This info graphic lists many great resources that could influence ICT use in a classroom. Many of these we have explored through ICT Design, however many are new resources. This could be a great starting block for an ICT and student centered unit plan. 

EDIT:
Upon reading this article, I agreed that these skills are necessary for 21st century teachers. I have re-read this article however, and now I see that these skills are just as important for 21st century students. Imagine sending students out into the workforce after school, with all of these skills. This Infographic has provided me with the inspiration for creating a learning sequence within a unit.

Within the drama classroom there is room for most of these skills. Within my unit plan, students have to prepare a performance but in addition to that, they have to market their performance. This will require posters, a promotion video, creating a website for the performance. Working collaboratively to decide what needs to be done, students then work independently on their task (decided within the group). This will give students the opportunity to excel in skills from outside of the drama classroom. 
Jeff At CQU's curator insight, June 17, 10:06 AM

This resource is excellent.  Highly organised, focused and very easy to read.  I think this would be a wonderful resource printed on a poster and displayed in the classroom.

 

Website addresses are given under nine headings that fit so well with the Australian Curriculum General Standards, the pedagogy I have chosen in my pedagogy map, and the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers..

 

Examples of such links are as follows:

 

1. Category on Chart: Create infographics and posters (4 websites listed)

      LINKS TO: 

(a) Australian Curriculum General Standards

    - Literacy - communicate concepts, ideas and detailed proposals

      LINKS TO: 

(b) High end pedagogy

   - Provide students opportunities to communicate ideas and detailed proposals through various self-selected ICT technologies

      LINKS TO: 

(c) Links to Pedagogy

   - Student direction: Students self-select methods to communicate their proposals, reports, drawings and specifications using media channels appropriate to the intended audience. To an extent directing, setting the pace and determining outcomes of learning (problem based learning).

      LINKS TO: 

(d) ICT Connections

   - Students should understand and develop the ability to utilise different presentation software – such as Prezzi and PowerPoint.

 

2. Category on Chart: Create PLNs, connect, discover new content and grow professionally (4 websites listed)

      LINKS TO: 

(a) Australian Professional Standards for Teachers.

6.2 Engage in professional learning and improve practice

 

3. Category on Chart: Create, organize adn share digital resources

      LINKS TO: 

(a) Australian Professional Standards for Teachers.

6.3 Engage with colleagues and improve practice

__________________________________________________________

 

In relation to SAMR, this allows for transformation learning in the following ways:

 

1. Modification: many tasks in the classroom can be re-designed with this poster being used to locate safe and appropriate resources on the internet.

 

An example is using a a resource under "Create Digital Portfolios" such as Weebly.com in place of a portfolio in book form.

 

2. Redefinition: new tasks, previously inconceivable are possible, such as displaying a student's portfolio on a mobile device as opposed to book form.

__________________________________________________________

 

 In summary, this is brilliantly designed and I see it as a highly valuable resource for my teaching.

How to Digitize Old Photos with Your Smartphone

How to Digitize Old Photos with Your Smartphone | InformationCommunication (ICT) | Scoop.it

"We all have old photos that are important to us. Vacations, family members who are no longer with us, good times in our lives—you know, important stuff. The thing is, pictures fade. The best way to keep these precious memories safe is by digitizing them, and what was once a lengthy process can now be done—with pretty exceptional results—directly from your phone.

Obviously, the best way to scan your photos is with a dedicated scanner with the right settings—or maybe by using a photo scanning service like Memories Renewed or DiJiFi. But Google has an app called PhotoScan, available for both iOS and Android, that works remarkably well with almost no work on your part. If you don’t want to spend a lot of money or time, this will do a good job."
