Blogging About The Web 2.0 Connected Classroom: So...You Wanna Be A Good Digital Citizen

Blogging About The Web 2.0 Connected Classroom: So...You Wanna Be A Good Digital Citizen | Pedagogy of Engagement: Literacy and Technology | Scoop.it

This is an update from a post a wrote a while back. I've included some new resources to check out.  

Recently, my district began a huge initiative to combat bullying/cyberbullying and to help students become more aware of the choices they make both in their face-to-face lives and their digital decisions as well. There is no one right way or right answer that will stop the problems. However, I do believe that the classroom and our schools are the places where tough conversations need to be had.

I have been collecting several resources and I want to share. By no means is this all the stuff that is out there. And some of it may work or may not. The point is to find something (curriculum, activity, website, video, etc) and start having the conversations, not just with students but with teachers, administrators, parents and our communities.

To start, I want to share this powerful video that was recently shared with me. It's all about the choices our kids are faced with everyday and the consequences of their actions.

11 Essential Tools For Better Project-Based Learning| TeachThought

11 Essential Tools For Better Project-Based Learning| TeachThought | Pedagogy of Engagement: Literacy and Technology | Scoop.it

by Katre Laan

 

"For students, the core aim of project-based learning is to put theory into practice and gain new skills throughout the process. From prioritizing tasks to managing sources and summarizing concepts, they will be developing skills for life. As well as using interactive tools in group project helps students to grasp a better understanding of a concept.

 

"A major advantage of digital tools used is better engagement in the classroom. For students it’s the curiosity, for teachers it’s a great tool to work with, to inspire and grade students work! A major advantage is that digital tools enable students and teachers to see the result immediately and make necessary changes within the tool and the project.

 

"Browser-based tools and several apps used in education are especially useful for researching, storytelling and collaborative video making. These tools’ aim is to encourage students to approach a task by asking open-ended questions and develop a concept of a task. They also enhance personalized learning, where students discover their own strengths, whether it is analysing and mapping out ideas, research or even editing.

 

"Handy mobile devices allow students to be inspired when outside classroom by creating and sharing ideas and creations instantly. The benefit of some of tools is that they accommodate different approaches to projects. Whether the end result is a presentation, telling stories on an interactive timeline or a visual board. Some apps can be useful is many ways."

I really enjoyed this first hand account of how technology has changed life and communications in Morocco. I lived and worked with teachers there for quite a few years and really saw many of these transformations taking place. No amount of research can compare with these types of first hand experiences.
