Beth Dichter's curator insight, September 28, 2013 6:09 PM

Common Sense Media is a great resource for teaching digital citizenship. A day or so ago I scooped a new song they had created on digital citizenship. This poster is a digitial citizenship pledge, one that you may talk about with your student and have each sign...and it has two extra spaces where you may choose to add one or two new rules. If you click through to their website you will also find a lesson plan on this. Common Sense Media does require  you to log-in to access all their materials (for download) and they have excellent resources.

The changing face of education means there is a change in educational leadership.  To keep up with these changes, educational leaders need to engage in the 3 C’s of Educational Leadership:  Connect, Contribute, Collaborate. Each C is essential to the professional growth of educational leaders and their effectiveness in the ever changing world of education.

Millennials Are Out-Reading Older Generations

Millennials Are Out-Reading Older Generations | Learning to learn | Scoop.it

"Kids today with their selfies and their Snapchats and their love of literature.

 

Millennials, like each generation that was young before them, tend to attract all kinds of ire from their elders for being superficial, self-obsessed, anti-intellectuals. But a study out today from the Pew Research Center offers some vindication for the younger set. Millennials are reading more books than the over-30 crowd, Pew found in a survey of more than 6,000 Americans."

Mel Riddile's curator insight, September 11, 12:34 PM

This is no accident! The increased emphasis on developing literacy skills, particularly in adolescents, has helped encourage more reading among the under 30 population. It is my hope that, with the emphasis on literacy as a shared responsibility across all content areas, students will be reading more and will read and write even more as adults.

WEAC's curator insight, September 14, 6:45 AM

Surprised? Pew Research Center says Millennials are reading more books than the over-30 crowd.
