What's your digital footprint? Take this quiz and find out! | It's not who you know but who knows them | 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.

This would be much more appealling - to me and all those natives -  if it was repurposed as an interactive quiz.  If time and Google Drive allows I may well get busy - and share alike.

Controlling Social Media: Current Policy Trends in K-12 Education

Controlling Social Media: Current Policy Trends in K-12 Education | It's not who you know but who knows them | Scoop.it

The continual connectivity and direct communication made possible through social media tools is what has essentially changed communication forever. Therefore, while I may have a specifically guided professional site, that site is present in the digital world and, as such, can be searched, linked, commented on, and posted–it can be “webbed” and that is precisely why new tools of communication are so powerful and also why their implications for teaching and learning are so amazing.

Exploring Curation as a core competency in digital and media literacy education | Mihailidis | Journal of Interactive Media in Education

Exploring Curation as a core competency in digital and media literacy education | Mihailidis | Journal of Interactive Media in Education | It's not who you know but who knows them | Scoop.it

 

In today's hypermedia landscape, youth and young adults are increasingly using social media platforms, online aggregators and mobile applications for daily information use.

 

Communication educators, armed with a host of free, easy-to-use online tools, have the ability to create dynamic approaches to teaching and learning about information and communication flow online.

 

In this paper we explore the concept of curation as a student- and creation-driven pedagogical tool to enhance digital and media literacy education.

 

We present a theoretical justification for curation and present six key ways that curation can be used to teach about critical thinking, analysis and expression online.

 

We utilize a case study of the digital curation platform Storify to explore how curation works in the classroom, and present a framework that integrates curation pedagogy into core media literacy education learning outcomes.
