Dave was a disengaged 14-year-old. Everything about his world suggested he would fail. He came to class, eyes glazed over, seeing little relevance in school. He was lost. That is, until a teacher found ways to reach him.

Educational leadership in an online world: connecting students to technology responsibly, safely, and ethically

Educational leadership in an online world: connecting students to technology responsibly, safely, and ethically | online learning and teaching | Scoop.it

The current gap in technology knowledge and lack of leadership preparation related to digital literacy for school environments can cause serious problems, as school leaders, parents, and broader social communities are currently realizing. The authors describe strategies for educational leaders to prepare their stakeholder groups for a digital future, as well as take actions to reduce technology misuse or abuse. Educational institutions should consider this Digital Citizenship model as a potential new tool to for students, faculty and staff—both on-site and online.

Erin Ryan's curator insight, October 11, 2015 5:31 PM

95% of students age 12-17 are online and of that 80% use social media. How can schools utilize technology effectively in learning an still keep our kids safe? Respect yourself and others, educate yourself and others and protect yourself and others. We need to teach kids to safely use technology. As educators, choose programs and applications that are well researched and reliable.

Gives a great description of digital etiquette and implementation for those new instructors weary of the digital change to classrooms.

Ernest Wang's curator insight, March 15, 8:55 AM

I agree that digital literacy may cause lack of leadership.To me,all this problems would become even more worse as now more and more people start abusing technology and not so much for study related stuff.Hence,it is important that something has to be done.Perhaps parents can encourage their child to leave their handphones and other technology related item at home unless it is a must.Or maybe teachers can have students to surrender their phones at the start of the day and only returning to them at the end of the day.Parents and teachers can reward them after each day to encourage students to not have contact with technology and would not abuse it.This may influence students to be more active and playing outdoor activities.It benefits them as lesser people would have eye related problems such as myopia.This may or may not be fool proof as more students are addicted to their handphones and might not want to leave their handphones.

For E-Learning, "As Good as" Is Not Good Enough

For E-Learning, "As Good as" Is Not Good Enough | online learning and teaching | Scoop.it

"Online learning can--and should--elevate the state of teaching in higher education... In July, the nonprofit research group Ithaka came out with perhaps the first really solid study on student outcomes associated with online learning, concluding that students can learn just as well in hybrid learning environments as in traditional classrooms. It's certainly good news that colleges don't have to sacrifice learning outcomes if they move toward a blended model of instructional delivery, but I'd like to suggest that online education set a higher bar for itself than reproducing the achievements of traditional college instruction."
