The 8 Digital Skills Students Need for The Future ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

The 8 Digital Skills Students Need for The Future ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Via Susan Bainbridge, John Shank
Ken Morrison's insight:

I feel that we are failing at 4 & 5.  The top three are also a problem. Yet, we seem to be paying more attention at improving those skills.  Especially when teaching creative students, we must help them improve their skills of communicating and 'selling' their ideas.  it is also a great shame that we are not doing a good job of educating our students about trends like SOPA, (etc), Net Neutrality, etc.

Tracy Shaw's curator insight, January 31, 8:35 AM

This is an important topic - and not just to librarians. Many schools will need to re-evaluate their classes to include more embedded technology & ethics skills. 

Maria João Loureiro's curator insight, February 1, 3:37 PM

Em síntese, as competências a desenvolver (qualquer que seja o nível de ensino em diferentes patamares, diria eu), relacionam-se com a literacia da informação (com e sem recurso as tecnologias mais recentes), ou seja, pesquisa, seleção e tratamento de informação (para a transformar em conhecimento - diferente de copy/paste) e comunicação (oral e escrita) de ideias, de si próprio e do que faz (de forma rigorosa e atraente), tendo em conta as normas de privacidade e ética (que em contextos online são bastas vezes descuidadas) . Parece-me ficar a faltar outras tantas, como a resolução de problemas, a colaboração, o aprender a aprender...

Paula Schwertner's curator insight, February 27, 9:00 AM

I could help teach students these skills in the context of their other coursework.

Learn about the story behind stopping SOPA from the people who did it!

Ken Morrison's insight:

Ken's Key Takeaway:

I haven't purchased this yet, but I will soon. It will be interesting and sad to read the story from the viewpoint of Aaron Swartz.  Swartz killed himself in January, 2013.

Keep the Internet Open

Keep the Internet Open | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Ken's Key Takeaway:

The number of governments that censor Internet content has grown to 40 today from about four in 2002.

 

A strong call to action by internet Founding Father Vint Cert

 

More and more governments are trying to take away the Internet as we know it.

 

I also STRONGLY suggest watching this 4-minute video from the same organization that helped us understand SOPA last Fall:

From the archives...Paul Ryan turns against SOPA following a Reddit-based attack | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Ken's Key Takeaway:

I'm doing a speech on the Free Internet, and I stumbled across this article.  So I wanted to share.  Ironically, I read an article this morning about President Obama's surprise appearance on Reddit this morning.

Ken

 

GOP Rep. Paul Ryan never sponsored the Stop Online Piracy Act. But the crowd at Reddit.com targeted him anyway -- and embraced a Democratic challenger. Read this article by Declan McCullagh on CNET News.

Google Oversetter

Ken's Key Takeaway.

I help my students appreciate and love Jeff Bezos.  He has a created a great life out of tough luck.  I hope that he takes ownership of this recent problem.  I am curious about what would happen if this user did not have the same social clout that she has.

 

NOTE:  I left a tag as SOPA for personal reference.  I do not feel that this is SOPA (etc.)-related

The NSA Is Funneling Your Internet Life from Silicon Valley to Obama's Desk

The NSA Is Funneling Your Internet Life from Silicon Valley to Obama's Desk | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it
If you thought the National Security Agency's collection of Verizon phone-call data was bad, wait until you hear about PRISM, the seven-year-old, previously undisclosed classified government program that works with nine very major U.S.
Ken Morrison's insight:

I held back on sharing this because I was hoping that the public was over-reacting.

 

FYI: I can not keep up with all of the attacks on privacy, so I simply file them all under the Scoop.it tag of "SOPA" and/or "Privacy" or "Politics"  Most are tagged under all three, but I always use "SOPA"

Ken Morrison's insight:

This one is not a fun share. It is a reminder that the fight for internet freedom is never really over.  We need to keep tuned in to what is happening in Washington.

You can find my past shares on this topic (SOPA filter) below.  I Simply call it all "SOPA" because each of the new names of bills are just family members of the orginal ugly bill:

Users of the social news and community site Reddit don't like the way the government seems to be muscling in on the Internet. So they plan to build a new one.

Yes! ACTA can be STOPPED, like SOPA! I Know How! Be a HERO SHARE this ACTA Video

Ken's Key takeaway:

Watch the first four minutes and you will want to watch the rest. I haven't done fact-checking yet, but my key takeaway is that CBS owns CNET. CNET proudly gave away the piracty programs and used massive resources to spread the programs around. Then they bragged about their SEO power. Now they take legal action on international users of the software that they spread. Just another reason to be disgusted at SOPA, ACTA, and simlar attempts to destroy web 2.0

Clay Shirky always finds a way to make complicated topics simple and memerable.

 

This one is less promising than most of his talks.  But it is important for each of us to listen and act upon.

SOPA and PIPA are not defeated.  They will transform into other equally ugly 'solutions'.
