I recommend Snopes to teachers and students a lot. (NB: Be aware that some of the queries on the site are not school appropriate, so always test  before you open the site on your screen for all to see!)

Up Periscope? New Rules for the Latest Social Media Tool

Up Periscope? New Rules for the Latest Social Media Tool | K-12 Digital Citzenship | Scoop.it

"I’ve always been a fan of sharing openly. I sometimes tell people that my life is an open book that no one wants to read. The nature of my job and my position is one that interacts regularly with social media as both a way of learning and a means of sharing.

Recently, I’ve been captivated by the phenomena of Meerkat and Periscope. As I’ve seen throughout my many years in Ed Tech, whenever a new tool hits the market there are usually a slew of early adopters running out to grab it, figure out what it does, then figure out how we can use it for education. I’m usually one of those first-adopters, but I’ve purposefully taken a more measured approach to the world of mobile live video streaming and becoming a “Digital Broadcaster”."

Tech It Up Tuesday: Locate Attributed Images with Photos for Class

Tech It Up Tuesday: Locate Attributed Images with Photos for Class | K-12 Digital Citzenship | Scoop.it

It’s Tuesday, so you know what that means… It’s time to “Tech It Up” with another cool tool that can be utilized in the educational setting.

So, let’s get right to it. This week’s shout out goes to Photos for Class, a site that’s ideal for safely searching for images that can be incorporated into classroom lessons, activities and projects.

Besides providing G-rated images via Flickr and proprietary filters, downloaded images also include citations that are automatically generated by the web tool. Attribution includes name of the author and photo, a link to the original photo and the name and type of license as well as a link to the licensing terms. How cool is that? No more worrying about the copyright police banging on your door. Photos for Class has got you covered!

15 Essential Netiquette Guidelines to Share with Your Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

15 Essential Netiquette Guidelines to Share with Your Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | K-12 Digital Citzenship | Scoop.it
"Netiquette ( net + etiquette) is the code of proper conduct applied to virtual online spaces. This code is dictated by common sense rules ( manners ) and social conventions. Teaching students about netiquette is just as important as teaching them to use technology in their learning. Crafting a netiquette memo for your class and informing your students about the importance of these rules will definitely help you create an engaging, respectful, and meaningful learning environment where collaboration and diversity of opinions are celebrated."
