Online Safety Tips and Tools to Protect Kids and Inform Parents about Internet dangers | Personal Learning Network | Scoop.it

Internet safety, privacy issues, cyberbullying are but some of the major concerns of today's parents. It is true that the web revolution has positively affected many facets of our life, yet its downsides are equally devastating. We are in front of a double edged weapon that requires meticulous attention when using it.
It is impossible to imagine a house without internet connection. The web has crawled into our social texture to the point that we become dependant on its use in our daily life

"It is impossible to imagine a house without internet connection. The web has crawled into our social texture to the point that we become dependant on its use in our daily life. Besides sending and reading emails, chat and socialising which are basic tasks users would constantly perform, some people are using it now for e-commerce to buy and shop online, to read ebooks, to run businesses but regardless of the reasons why we have internet at home we should always pay heed to who shares with us this connection especially when it comes to kids."

Google Earth: Over 1 Billion Downloads and So Many Uses in the Classroom | edte.ch | Personal Learning Network | Scoop.it

"Google Earth was one of the very first pieces of software that I began to create educational resources with. As I put it in one of my first ever blog posts 5 years ago: ”This app won me over straight away.” The engaging environment really struck a chord with me and I remember fondly my first forays into using it to support learning. It has developed so much over the years...."

What kind of digital curator are you?

What kind of digital curator are you? | Personal Learning Network | Scoop.it

This is an interesting workshop presentation given at #converge11 by Joyce Seitzinger. It has a focus on curation in EduTech but is generic as well in a lot of aspects.

 

In particular, I love the distinction she makes from slide 22 onward between all types of "curators": a fun way of showing what curation best practices should be all about.

I've been exploring the idea of 'the social media classroom' and how I view teachers with an emerging role as curators, but also teaching student the skills of curation so they can get the right resources in an age of ubiquitous information. I'll have to keep in touch.

Nice one thanks for this. I have been following your Scoops. You can also set up and share your scoops on Internet Billboards, it's very easy to set up and do and there is no extra effort just a couple clicks. Like this http://t.co/63g5ViEq Also do you have a blog? Just curious.

Sensemaking artifacts « Connectivism

Sensemaking artifacts « Connectivism | Personal Learning Network | Scoop.it

When learners enter complex information settings, the first experience is one of disorientation. “Where do I go?” “Where can I find what I need?” “Who else is here?” As a learner orients herself, she begins to form connections with a few others, resulting in sub-networks often based on some similarity (same country, similar interests, previous connection). In our work in open online courses, we’ve found consistent patterns emerging as learners interact with each other and with information. Through joint processes of sensemaking and wayfinding – see presentation below – learners begin exploring and negotiating the domain of knowledge. In the process, they produce artifacts, such as the images posted above.

The 9 Types of Collaborators - Infographic

The 9 Types of Collaborators - Infographic | Personal Learning Network | Scoop.it

If you approach your collaboration strategy with a “one-size-fits-all” mentality, your rollout is far more likely to fail. There exist all different types of users that each prefer to work in their own unique ways – some prefer to work in groups, others in silos, some on iPads, others on pen and paper. They also have different needs for the solution – some just need to share files, or manage tasks, or automate processes with workflows. Learning to recognize the different types of collaborators and their reasoning for loving, or hating, collaboration will allow you to help each overcome their biggest barriers or objections.
