Techie Teacher: Tech Skills Needed for Successful Online Testing

Techie Teacher: Tech Skills Needed for Successful Online Testing | Learning 2gether | Scoop.it
A list of tech skills and practice suggestions that students will need to be successful on online tests powered by PearsonAccess, such as CMAS and PARCC
Nancy Jones's insight:

A thoughtful and interesting list of skills that our students may not yet have as they enter the world of online testing, most certainly the direction testing is going. Not exactly test prep, but more a reexamination of technology skills that we may "assume" they have because they are so often engaged with digital devices.

The Awkward 'Privacy Talk' Parents Should Have With Their Kids

The Awkward 'Privacy Talk' Parents Should Have With Their Kids | Learning 2gether | Scoop.it
Parents across the world today need to have a new conversation with their kids. No, it’s not about behaving in class, not talking to strangers, or having sex. But in so many ways, it's just as important. It’s data permanence. How we can preserve our reputations in the digital era?

 

It’s a conversation that will look very different in different parts of the world. In some places, kids will have to think twice before posting photos of teenage escapades, given how such photos may look to others in a professional environment even many years later. In other places, kids will have to be careful of posting any items that may “dishonor” them or their family in some way.

 

In still other places, kids will have to think about whether what they post on sensitive political, ethnic, or religious issues may define them long after they have changed their views.

Nancy Jones's insight:

We have been having these types of important discussions with our students in digital literacy classes. What is interesting to note is that it becomes a parent piece that often schools have to provide to help them keep up with their children and  the good, bad and the ugly of technology.

Noeline Laccetti's curator insight, March 5, 9:47 AM

Data permanence must be addressed with ALL children, and well before the "sex talk" 

Jenny Ritchie's curator insight, March 5, 7:36 PM

New technologies have exposed behaviours of young people which have put their future success at risk.  Are these new behaviours created by the opportunities that are provided by new technology?  Or are these behaviours that would have been typical of young people even without the technologies they use as a vehicle to display them?

And it is a great opportunity for ESL students too.  Using Scoopit gives them the opportunity to read and write, practice their English language outside the classroom, and play an important role in the 21st Century learning process.

Yet there is still the issue that students are citing images without checking to see if they have the correct permissions to do so. Students (and teachers) need to be aware of copyright rules. Using resources like Flickr you will find many pictures but students need to learn how check to see if the image is under Creative Commons and accurately site the source.

Langwitch does an excellent job explaining a situtation that she experienced with her students and provides screenshots to help you understand what to look for. Teaching students how to cite resources is teaching our students media literacy.

Consider having your students create an image that they could put under Create Commons and have attibuted to them of others were to use it.
