What's your digital footprint? Take this quiz and find out! | InstructionalTech | Scoop.it

"I developed this quiz with members of my personal learning network (found at end of post) to get students thinking about their digital footprint. The quiz was created at the request of high school students I spoke with who thought the creation of a such a quiz could lead to a smart conversation about ways students can update their digital footprint so that it is one that leads to college and career success."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 11, 2013 10:27 PM

If you work with students in high school (or even college) you might want to have them check out this digital footprint quiz. Students answer 8 questions and score their quiz. There are six possible outcomes:

* Negative Score: Clean up time
* No Score: You’re off the radar 
* 1 - 10 points: You’re a New “Foot” on the Block

* 11 - 15 points: You’re Making Strides
* 16 - 20 points: You’re a Rising star! (or “Digital Weaver”)
* More than 20 points: You’re Web Wise!

More details are available for each description.

Collaboration is essential in online teaching and learning.  I take a liberal view of the word and choose to think that every time a student participates in a meaningful online discussion, they are truly collaborating as they discuss ideas.

Educational uses are not just limited to a classroom nor to a "traditionally enrolled" student! What a great example of invovative use for us all!

 

We should be looking outside the box in addition to simply thinking outside the box!!

A Must Have App Evaluation Rubric for Teachers

A Must Have App Evaluation Rubric for Teachers | InstructionalTech | Scoop.it

How about after you find the apps, do you know how to evaluate their pedagogic implications ? Are they educationally valid ? Do they target skills you want your students to work on ? Are they flexible enough to let students learn in different settings ? Are they student friendly ?

Interesting application, but the content has the same trouble that many of the rubric available on the web: It says nothing:
Ove Christensen's comment, December 9, 2012 6:38 AM
Well I think you should see it as a help for reflection on apps and use of apps. No tools are doing the hard work for you but they help you to remember what to cover.
Jim Lerman's comment, December 9, 2012 5:44 PM
@Cristian...I don't see it the same way. The criteria, in my opinion, do provide a useful framework for judging the efficacy of a web app. The value in the criteria is implicit; if one shares the values inherently stated in the criteria (for example, "authentic practice of targeted skills"), then I think the criteria are indeed helpful. If the values and meaning of the criteria do no speak to you, the reader, then I can see where one could feel they do not say anything. As Ove says, "no tools are doing the hard work for you."

Are you a digital packrat? Are you in need of a searchable repository for everything you want to recall later? Does the idea of automatic OCR (Optical Character Recognition) for all your scanned PDFs get you excited in a way only seriously organised people could ever understand? If so, Evernote is the tool you need right now – and we’ve got the perfect manual to get you started using it like a professional.
