From Infographic...and Informational Text TCC 4-5

This is a graphic example for the article, but the site is a cybersafety site in the UK and has lots of information for parents about online safety for their children. It also tests their knowledge.

Rachael Johnston's curator insight, October 20, 10:53 PM

It is important to build your own brand and to promote yourself positively. You want to be polite to other users and make sure you have nothing on your profile that could be damaging to your reputation. This includes swear words, inappropriate or rude comments, and pictures and videos of drinking or drugs.  This is really important for graduating students who, most likely, need to go through and delete pictures that have been tagged in one Facebook

Make sure you give credit to others if you share something of theirs. Also make sure you are writing your own posts and not just sharing others. However, make sure you are posting valuable and relevant information. Listen and think before you write and make sure you are using proper english. 

It is okay to have debates on social netowrks with other users, everybody has the right ti voice their opinion, but don't let things get too personal or nasty. 

It is also essential to understand that there are also hings to be very careful of when using social networks. For one, people are not always who they seem. You should also make sure you do not assume a false identity. It is important to keep some kind of professionalism, but don't change yourself or hide who you really are. 

You must also make sure you are abiding by the rules of the network and report others who dont. 

Last but certainly not least, be very careful about who you share things with. There are certain places to share certain things. For example, you may post something bout your personal life in your Facebook status, but it is not appropriate to do so on your LinkedIn profile. Do not share pictures and videos with strangers, you never know how they will use these.

The difference between winners and losers how they handle losing. No one can completely avoid troubles and potential pitfalls are everywhere, so the real skill is the resilience to climb out of the hole and bounce back.

Nice article by Rosemary Kanter - I like to reframe the idea that sustained resilience not only helps you bounce back, but it also helps you 'bounce forward'
John Michel's curator insight, July 19, 2013 8:39 PM

For anyone who wants to get beyond adversity or start over rather than give up, America is the Land of Second Chances. According to Jon Huntsman, former US Ambassador to China, getting back on our feet is an American strength widely admired in China. And everywhere, rapid recovery from natural disasters is increasingly a key to a robust economy. Entrepreneurs and innovators must be willing to fail and try again. The point isn't to learn to fail, it is to learn to bounce back.

Maureen Orey's curator insight, August 14, 2013 1:17 AM

A great thought leader really captures the essence of the importance of resilience!

Our Space: Being a Responsible Citizen of the Digital World | DMLcentral

LETP's insight:

This resource pack starts with a unique orientation activity designed for teachers. Using hypothetical scenarios, it aims to provide teachers with the opportunity to reflect on their own ethical perspectives and new media practices, and to consider those of their students. It may be used by teachers to brainstorm and prepare before engaging their students.

 

Subsequently, teachers may use or customise the rich collection of suggested resources in Our Space to guide students in role-playing activities and reflective exercises. 

 

Our Space was co-developed by The GoodPlay Project and Project New Media Literacies, and involved noted academics such as Howard Gardner and Henry Jenkins.
