How To Tackle Digital Citizenship During The First 5 Days Of School - Edudemic

How To Tackle Digital Citizenship During The First 5 Days Of School - Edudemic | Maryland School Libraries and Technology | Scoop.it

Our students are like cowboys living in the wild wild west. Without any guidelines or structure they can get in a lot of trouble. Armed with a concrete plan for teaching about appropriate use you can guide your students to become better digital citizens, who will learn how to build their digital presence in a positive and productive way.

Starting at the beginning (of the year or thier school life) makes sense - then this becomes part of the dialogue right through their academic and working careers.

Maria Persson's comment, August 25, 2013 8:41 PM
If only we could be consistent right through their entire educational lives...it will happen!
Kimberly House's curator insight, September 4, 2013 3:43 PM

I like the idea of packing this into the first week of school. It needs to be followed up, of course. My bigger worry is how much to teachers and parents know about these topics? They need to be incorporated into the training as well.

Innovations in Education - Create a Culture of Questioning and Inquiry

Innovations in Education - Create a Culture of Questioning and Inquiry | Maryland School Libraries and Technology | Scoop.it

"I have often suggested to teachers that when students have access to technology, whether it is provided by the school in a 1:1, BYOD, or simply the smart phone in their pocket, there should never be a question that goes unanswered –or un-followed. These are teachable moments for how to effectively search for information (information literacy & digital literacy) ...What I discovered in the 300+ observations I have done for our 21st Century Learning grant work was that the problem isn’t necessarily about allowing time for students to answer questions. The problem is that they rarely ask questions beyond simply clarifying what needs to be done for the assignment."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, August 12, 2013 8:43 PM

As teachers we ask our students questions all the time...but how often do your students ask questions...perhaps a better question would be do they know how to ask good questions? This post provides some background material as well as ideas for "how you might begin to shift from a culture of compliance, to a culture of questioning in your classroom." 

One of the ideas she suggests is looking at information from the Right Question Institute and purchasing a book "Make Just One Change: Teach Students To Ask Their Own Questions." I have been reading this book and find it an incredible resource.

Her findings reveal that the most widely used strategy is having the child use the Internet in a public space in the home. Parents rely on establishing and enforcing rules for time and content; surprisingly, few parents co-surf online with their preteens, ask questions about the websites their kids visit, or encourage their kids to create things online. In the survey, parents reviewed a list of strategies for managing media use in the home.

hese days, my mind is frequently on the Common Core and helping educators grapple with the new standards and expectations for literacy learning. As we know, one of the major shifts in the ELA Standards is the expectation (and requirement) that students will be reading much more nonfiction and informational text resources. Project-Based Learning is a natural way for students to be immersed in real-world reading for real-world purposes.
