"More than three-quarters of all U.S. teenagers have cell phones, and of those, a growing number have smart phones—cell phones that are always online. A report published March 19 by the Pew Center’s Internet and American Life Project tells us how much, and exactly how, teens use them. We already know teens text a lot: A now-famous October 2010 survey by the Nielsen Co. showed the average teenager sent 3,339 texts a month."
"The term 'digital divide' has long been used to describe the gap between those with access to communications technology and those without—applying to both home computer ownership as well as the delivery of home broadband access, which is still an issue. In fact, though 65 percent of households (pdf) have broadband access, that figure drops to 40 percent in households with less than $20,000 in annual income. More recently, the term has referred to the gap in the type of engagement with the digital world. It has come to mean the divide between those who use technology to learn and create and those who use it more for entertainment or staying up to date on social networking sites. It might easily be summed up as the gap between creators and consumers."
CC-BY as proof of openness, a passport to the world of the trendy edupunks and transparency in education. But it’s not that simple.
Basic Attribution (CC-BY) doesn’t do much for open learning, or even sharing. It’s the NC (non-commercial) and SA (share-alike) aspects of Creative Commons licensing that makes for openness. Attribution simply means anyone can use the work so long as they attribute it, as part a Cartridge package or inside a website, but with no obligation to openness at all. They can take the package, close it off in a system, and charge for access to that system.
The skills people will always need to thrive -- deep thinking, the ability to differentiate fact from hype, creativity, self-regulation, empathy, and self-reflection -- aren't learned in front of screens.
